Really nice traditional Moroccan Riad. Rooms were lovely, clean and nicely decorated. The roof terrace was really nice to sit out on during the really hot times of the day with nice shady spots. Good location to get into the heart of the city in a few minutes walk.
Breakfast was basic, Moroccan pancakes and lots of bread, jam, butter and coffee.
Mohammed works in Euros which is very confusing when the rest of the city is in drihams so watch out for that when he charges you. On our first day he took us out for an excursion around the city which was fine, he did not mention anything about a cost but he then demanded 25euro each from us at the end of our stay. I would not recommend the excursion, it was very basic with little interaction. It consisted mainly of the new city which isn't really worth going on an excursion to as there is not really anything there to see. As a rule in general in Marrakech not just with Mohammed, make sure you clarify everything cost etc before you agree to a deal so you don't get caught out.
All in all a great location to stay, if it wasn't for the excursion we got dragged into I would have given it a much higher rating.
