We would highly recommend this Riad and after a day in the hustle and bustle of the streets of Marrakech it is the perfect Oasis of comfort. The whole Riad is beautifully decorated in a traditional style. There is a small plunge pool with a tranquil courtyard set around it that made an ideal place to drink, read and unwind. There was also a rooftop terrace with sun loungers and views across the rooftops of the city, stretching far into the desert and Atlas Mountains. Breakfast was plentiful for our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend this place.
Our one piece of advice would be to book a taxi from the airport through the Riad. It is located down one small alleyway, in a labyrinth of unsigned alleyways that is the Medina. The taxi will not be able to get further than the 'main road' leaving you to walk the final stage. Other guests said their taxi drivers didn't even know where the Riad was but because our taxi driver was booked through the Riad he was able to walk us through the alleyways right to the front door. As we arrived after dark I think I would have been quite apprehensive finding our way around on our own initially. It soon became familiar though and by the next night we were confident finding our way home. If you are put off by the thought of navigating dimly lit alleyways then you are better off in one of the big hotels, but if you want to experience true Marrakech at its best then this is definitely the place for you.
