I stayed in this riad for only one night when I arrived in Marrakech on my way to visit a friend.
I was met at the airport - which was just as well, because it's not an easy place to find. However, it is a real hidden gem. It lies in the far side of the old town and to reach it, you have to get out of the taxi beside one of the city gates and walk along narrow streets until you reach the riad.
Inside, it is very nice indeed. My room was fine, the sheets and towels were spotless and the decor was traditional Moroccan.
The young lady who was running the place (Sara) could not have been more helpful. She helped me to get a Moroccan sim card, explained how to put the credit on and rang to check it had registered properly. In fact, the only reason I did not stay here on my return to Marrakech at the end of my trip was the position of the place, which would have been a little inconvenient for the things I wanted to do in the city.
