We stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. Our first visit to Marrakech it was important we could have a nice environment to stay in and this was certainly it. It is spotlessly clean and very quiet in stark contrast to the bustle just outside.
We ate at the riad a few times and the food was always excellent. We found some nice restaurants as well just a 10 minute walk away (kafe souk, les jardins, cafe arabe, Terrasse des epices). I don't know what it is like to stay in the more modern parts but I am glad we stayed in the medina. It takes some getting used to but after a while you realise it is safe and you can always retreat to the riad or a restaurant if you want to relax.
The staff are just lovely and makes you realise what nice people the locals are. Always attentive but never intrusive. Nothing was too much trouble. The owners Sybille and Saad made us very welcome and Saad's dry humour made us laugh.
