We chose this riad for its location central to the Medina (old city). It is owned by a Moroccan family and the service is excellent. Rooms are spacious and superbly appointed, bathrooms have all of the modern conveniences while the decor is refined but understated Moroccan. There is an indoor pool, small restaurant which is one of the finest in Marrakesh, spa, and bountiful breakfast spreads included in the room price which are served on the upper terrace. Also included is a private guide for one half day and a private driver to meet you at the airport. They attend to every detail here and every restaurant recommendation made by the front desk has been reliable and excellent. For one who often hires top notch guides when traveling in developing countries, there is no need here as they will arrange it all at reasonable prices day by day. While there are more opulent Riads, this one feels truly authentic and not touristy. I highly recommend this Riad. They also have wi fi. No gym though. We worked out on the roof before breakfast.
