We stayed here on our honeymoon in Marrakech and were delighted with our experience. The service in particular was excellent - we returned to the riad for one final night after a week away exploring the country and were pleasantly surpised to find they had prepared us a welcome snack, upgraded us from a room to a suite, and prepared the hammam (Turkish bath) for us.
The rooms were simply and elegantly furnished, with interesting features such as handwoven rugs and unusual artwork hanging on the walls. Our room was a little cool at night as it was in a shady courtyard but we thought that was to be expected in a traditional rather than modern home. The riad overall was lovely and had unexpected charms - when taken on a guided tour one of the staff pulled back a big tarpaulin on the roof to reveal a drop down into a courtyard where a wonderfully fragranced orange tree was growing. The scent hit us like perfume. Oh, and breakfast on the sunny rooftop was a treat.
The location was very central - only minutes from the main square- which was great. Some guests may find it a drawback that the riad is down a winding alley with a very rough, potholed surface that is difficult to navigate on foot, nevermind in a wheelchair / vehicle / with a pushchair. But the advantage was that it was tucked away from the chaos of the city.
Overall, really lovely.
