I arrived in Marrakech at just before midnight on a Friday night, which wasn't the best time to try to get bearings and find the Riad. You can't get a taxi into the old medina, and have to get the taxi driver to drop you off just outside Jemna El Fna, walk into the square and then locate the Riad which is just off the square up a small side street. I expected the Riad to be noisy due to its close proximity to the square, but it was surprisingly quiet, especially on the rooftop sun lounge area. You would never guess you were in the centre of the noisy and vibrant city of Marrakech. Josef, the owner is a lovely guy and is informative about the surrounding areas. Breakfast consisted of local bread with cheese and marmalade, a syrup pancake and fresh juice and tea/coffee, which was more than fine to start the day with. The room was traditionally decorated with ample plugs to charge everything (standard European 2 pin style plugs). I would choose to stay at the Riad again because of its location, value for money, free Wi-Fi, good size rooms and convenience of having the rooftop to laze in the sun after a hard days sightseeing. The only downside I can think of was the traditional morning call to prayer at around 6 am on Sunday morning, but I guess you'd hear this at any Riad in the centre as opposed to staying in a sound proofed room in a modern hotel.
