We booked this riad for an overnight stay whilst we visited from a holiday in Agadir. The Riad is difficult to locate; we arrived on a Supratours Bus and the taxi driver dropped us at an entrance to the Medina and told us to walk down the narrow road for around 100 yards until we found it. Dar Zemrane is the name of the 'Alley' which then divides off into several smaller alleys. Most properties are numbered which helps. This Riad is located at the end of one of them. It is within 15 minutes walk from the main square and the alley is sufficiently lit to enable you to return after dark.
The riad has only a few rooms and ours had air conditioning (which worked but did not fully keep it cool) . There is a roof terrace on which you can sit on easy shaded seats, an open-air area on the ground floor in which you are served a pleasant breakfast and a 'public room' with television which we did not use.
The rooms are small and the owners do not speak English (we don't speak french).
This is not a 5* establishment but if you want to get a flavour of living in Marrakesh proper rather than a 'Western' Hotel it is well worth using for a couple of nights.
