We stayed at Aguaviva for a few days in our trip to Marrakech/Essaouira during summer 2011. David, Cesc and Manuel were not only great hosts, but also guiding us, giving great advice on where to go for shopping for antiques as well as cafes and good restaurants. You will not find more welcoming and dedicated hosts, their warm friendlyness and way of being creates an atmosphere even the best five-star hotels can't match.
There are six rooms, each with their own bathroom (with a bathtub), all deliciously furnished in mixed marrocan antique and modern style. Good beds and they serve delicious breakfast. The place is located in the less touristic, old part of the city. The beautiful surroundings inside, is contrasting the "real Marrakech" outside the building. The walk down to the Medina is about 10-15 minutes, and (at least) as interesting as the Medina itself - will normally take half an hour or more as you will not resist stops on your way in small shops or interesting places. Through this walk you get the authentic experience of Marrakech. Be prepared (and enjoy) to get a bit lost in the many small streets :)
I can absolutely reccomend this place to anyone visiting Marrakech.
