Everything was alright. One little exception: german users, when reviewing the "final page" directly prior booking, the statements about the taxes are incorrect. As stated in the description of the Riad, those are not included in the price and have to be paid on arrival, contradictory to what you read on that summary page before booking.
We can highly recommend this Riad! The staff is friendly and helpful and the location is also perfect, close to the main square and to the souqs - still quiet and calm on the roof terrace and the inside during evening and night. Everything was clean and tidy, there was just one odd thing we noticed: a strange smell in the bathroom (other travellers have also told about that). Since you most probably won't find the Riad by yourself, we can recommend the airport pickup service. The breakfast was also good. Definately a good choice if you are looking for a nice place close to the tremendously fast-beating heart of Marrakech.
