A wonderful riad experience which certainly lived up to the five-star reviews posted by other tripadvisor users. We stayed for 7 nights in a superior double room, which benefited from a very comfortable four-poster bed. The room was a good size and very clean. That said, you will probably find most of your time being spent outside on their amazing roof terrace with views out across the city and Atlas Mountains beyond. We would recommend using the excusions offered at the riad to places outside of Marrakech as we received very good service on our trips to Essaouira and Ouarzazate (although be prepared for a long and winding drive out to the latter).
As commented by other users, the main square is around a 10 minute walk from the riad and we felt very safe walking to and from the square at night. We had most of our meals on the square, although when we returned from our day trips late in the evening the staff were more than happy to rustle up a simple dinner for us. As a tip, we would recommend trying Kosybar around 3-4 minutes from the riad which offers high quality international food (a welcome break from couscous and tagine!).
Finally, the level of service offered by the two owners and their team was exceptional. They were polite, friendly and spoke excellent English. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely visit again.
