This is an amazing place in the centre of the Medina - the owner Patrice is very helpful and so friendly along with his friend Abdul, he sent us a very good map of how to get exactly to the Riad through the wiggly streets which was very helpful on our arrival. We were greeted with mint tea and biscuits and a very helpful talk from Patrice about how to get to places etc. The location is perfect: 10 minutes walk to the main square, 5 minutes walk to the souks and 20 mins walk to the new town.
The breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely: freshly squeezed orange juice, pastries, eggs and coffee. We had supper in the Riad one night which was brilliant - Fatima made some delicious food (have the Moroccan Salad!) and we had the whole area to ourselves next to the pool. So different to eating in the centre of Marrakech!!
We were staying in the small room at the top which is a room with a bathroom separated by a curtain which was really lovely even though it was quite small - really relaxing. The communal area downstairs is really peaceful with light music, comfy sofas and a pool which was quite cold so we didn't use it but it looked really nice.
Would definitely recommend this Riad - we looked at hundreds before visiting and very very happy we chose this one!
