Patrick, the owner, absolutely makes this place. He is so helpful and generous. A French national who moved to Marrakech to run his own riad. There is nothing he won't do for you. On our last day we had to get up very early for our flight (around 4am). He got up half an hour before us and had made us a farewell breakfast. He is happy to arrange day trips and suggest excursions.
The riad itself is lovely and a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the streets. The rooftop is tranquil and relaxing. We spent a lot of time here. He has some pet turtles (who guests keep buying for him) that are quite charming.
The rooms themselves are nice and air conditioned. The inner walls are a little thin so noise from within the riad can be a problem.
Patrick has done a really good job of decorating the place.
It's located just north of the soukhs and within easy walking distance of the main square (Jamaa el Fna), if you can navigate your way through! It's also reasonably located for walking to the new town.
One thing to say, you will not find this riad on your own. Be sure to contact Patrick beforehand so he can come and greet you.
