My husband and I stayed in 'Sofia', a double room on the first floor, for 5 nights this last week. The welcome to the Riad was lovely, and Joelle was very friendly and helpful. A grasp of French is very useful in Marrakech, but Joelle and her staff do speak English.
The Riad was beautifully clean, and dinner and taxi transfers, which were arranged via email before we arrived, were faultless. Our room was spacious, the bed comfortable, and the en-suite was well designed and very clean. There was no safe but a locking wardrobe and key were provided. The Riad has a lovely roof terrace with sun loungers, and inside the internal garden of the Riad there are tables and chairs, a pool (for decoration only - it's a bit tiny!) , and some lovely trees.
The only reason I did not give 5 stars was the noise from the street, hardly a fault of the Riad, but a factor to consider - if I were to go again I may well ask for a room which does not overlook the alleyway / road. This is an issue common to most Riads - the design of the shutters means to get any fresh air (which we prefer to air-con!) you have to have them quite open, and Marrakech doesn't fall asleep until the early hours every night!
Overall a beautiful oasis of calm in the madness that is Marrakech.
