First, Mohammed the Manager/Concierge/Local expert is the best 100%.
He tends to any and all needs you may have, whether it's a million questions or a bottle of wine (he actually ran down the block to fetch us Coca Cola and was back before we knew he had left).
He makes an excellent friend, sitting down and chatting about Morocco (even serving us his Mother's home made soup) giving advice and directions to everything.
It is hard to find the Riad and very easy to get lost, but Mohammed was always a phone call away and would come out and meet us when the taxi pulled up.
The riad its self is an amazing oasis, the roof, rooms, courtyard, and pool (amazing after a long day of wandering). There's no tv in the rooms and the internet (on some devices) worked best when in the courtyard, but we don't travel to do what we can do at home.
I will say, even from two people that have been to souks and crazy streets in other countries, Marrakech can be a lot to take in and once you walk out the riad door, you're in it.
Donkeys, families on mopeds, kids playing, and everything else you can't imagine.
Again, Mohammed and staff are what we in the states call, "Johnny on the spot".
Whatever you need (ashtray, clean room, tea, transportation, etc.) they've already got it for you.
Only heads up I would mention, some things are able to be put on your bill, but other things have to be paid in Dirham or Euro, so ask in advance, cause the closest bank (there's a few) is a few blocks away.
