I think this is one of the new breed of Riad's that have sprung up across Marrakech over the past decade as it certainly wasn't there on my first visit to the city back in 1997. It's hard to tell though as the central courtyard has a very traditional feel with some beautiful detailing.
Also on the postive side are the roof terrace, with extensive views across the rooftops of the medina and lots of exotic sounds & smells wafting over from the nearby square. We loved the hamman in the basement too, particularly the range of massage treatments, although I wouldn't say that the hamman itself was the best, nor the cheapest I had in Morocco. The reception staff were generally helpful although perhaps a little laid back at times.
On the down side, we experienced two different rooms at the hotel, both before and after our trek. The first was definately on the small side and wouldn't have been ideal for a longer stay. There was also no air conditioning and whilst the rooms were just about tolerable with electric fans in May, they must be unbearable during the high summer.
We enjoyed the roof top restaurant, particularly being able to take breakfast out there, although we did find that the service could sometimes be a bit on the slow side. The dinner menu was also fairly limited and it might be easy to tire of the choice after a few days.
In conclusion though, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend. The positives far outweighed any negatives. The place is brilliantly located, has a chilled out ambience and represents excellent value for money.
