The only good thing about this riad is its location close to the souks. The staff speak very limited english and french and there is no-one else to contact if you have a problem or query - not good if you're new to Marrakech because there are no guide books/tourist literature/maps etc. provided to help you decide where to go. A group of 5 of us rented the entire riad. It was absolutely freezing! The only form of heating is by setting the air conditioning units to blow hot air but this was totally inadequate and the twin bedroom did not have an air conditioner but a calor gas fire which filled the room with fumes. In the end we got the staff to move this heater into the lounge area to have somewhere warmish to sit. One of our party ended up sleeping on the sofa there as the bedrooms were so cold. There is nothing whatsoever in the way of toiletries, hairdriers etc. and only one tiny piece of soap in the bathroom. Beware if you want dinner at the riad - they wanted to charge us an outrageous 25 euros per person for salad, main course and fruit salad, excluding drinks (soft or otherwise). I am sure we could have found somewhere else more welcoming for the same money.
