We came here based on the mainly positive TA reviews, and we would concur with all that others have said about the ambience, tasteful decor and tranquillity. The Riad is reasonably well located: a 20 min walk to the main square, but through a fascinating area where local life hums and buzzes all around you. Most reviewers have written glowingly of the welcome provided by the owner, along with help and advice from her in terms of orientation, finding restaurants and trip planning. However, during our stay, she was absent, and we had no such help, which was very disorientating for first time visitors to Marrakech. Although the two young girls left in charge were absolutely charming and very hard working, it felt to us that the level of responsibility they had been given was onerous and it showed. They were on duty from early morning until late at night, and appeared to have little (if any) time off; as such they were often understandably weary. Riads tend to be situated in narrow lanes of complex alleys, as is this one. A welcome cup of tea was provided on arrival, but no information about the location, maps, tourist information or anything to help us orientate ourselves was available. One of the girls spoke French, which was fine for us, but so far as I'm aware, they did not speak English. Compared to European hotels, the price for the level of service provided in this Riad seems high, especially when the cost of living in Marrakech is factored in.
