This could not have been better. The Riad itself is a perfect oasis of calm in the middle of the madness that is the Marrakech medina. Absolutely beautiful rooms and common areas and a level of service that cannot be bettered. From advice on how to get around in the city and what to see to arranging a trip to the Atlas, the airport pick-up, the plentiful and complimentary fruit, water, coffee and Moroccan tea and exceptional attention before we even came - including even calling us one evening in immediate response to an email question we had!
Location can't, from my point of view, be better. Close to one of the main gates and in a definitely "local" part of the Medina but still only some 10 or 15 minutes walk from the main tourist areas. The welcome meal they offer is very well worth trying as well.
All in all for value, atmosphere and experience and if you want the real Marrakech experience this cannot be beaten.
