I stayed here with a friend last week. We were only there one night and chose the riad based on TripAdvisor reviews.
The riad is in a great location, very close to the souk but the street it is in is very quiet. It is really nicely decorated and is very pretty.
The room was nice and well-looked-after, as was the riad in general. However, the hot water in the shower didn't last long and the shower ended up being cold.
The roof terrace was beautiful, we spent a morning sunbathing there before heading out of Marrakech to Essaouira.
Breakfast was pretty standard - bread, pancakes, orange juice etc. Nothing too spectacular, but nice and included in the price (as was the case with all the places we stayed).
Overall, I liked the place, mainly for the location and how well-maintained it is. However, having stayed at several other places during my trip, I am not sure the price, which was considerably higher than everywhere else we stayed, was entirely justified.
