If you are looking to stay close to all the action of Marrakech medina then I would highly recommend a stay at Riad Andalla. We were made to feel very welcome during our stay here, from before we had even arrived!
Before we arrived we emailed Christophe, the owner, to ask for directions to the riad (although it is located next to the square, the entrance was down a few alleyways) and we also made dinner reservations as well. Christophe replied promptly and was ready to greet us when we arrived at the riad. He provided us with mint tea on the rooftop terrace and gave us a map and told us some information of places to visit and recommended some restaurants to have lunch later that day.
Our room was one of the suites and had beautiful traditional decor and although the riad is on the square and you can hear the sounds of the snake charmers and drummers during the day, there is no disturbance at night, so we slept very well.
Dinner was served downstairs in the patio lounge, by the fountain. It was a little too quiet for my liking but the food was pretty tasty. Breakfast was included in the price and served up on the rooftop terrace with views over the Djemma el fna square. The views from the terrace were what attracted us to this riad in particular and it was nice to see the action of the square from a viewpoint.
Although our stay at Riad Andalla was brief, I would definitely recommend staying here!
