We stayed at the Riad Amssaffah in February and found it to be an ideal place to experience Marrakech. We had our transfers organised by the Riad and were met at the airport, a slight word of caution the transfers guy (not connected with the Riad) might try and sell you 'experiences' these are at over inflated prices dont book them!
The Riad is right in the heart of old town so you have to walk a little out of the van - great introduction to the crazy small streets of Marrakech. The Riad itself is a wonderful traditional 300 year old Riad and we were made to feel very very welcome.
Fatima the hostess was lovely and helped us out so much - from sourcing us food when starving from the plane to helping us not get lost. Our room was a large double with a massive bed and good shower (decorated in that classical embellished moroccan style) and we had no complaints.
The breakfasts were served each morning with either a fried crepe (Beghrir) or Morocoo style pancake (Rghaif), amazing fresh orange juice, bread and yoghurt. We found the dinners to be very nice too and good for if you just wanted something without any hassel. You can find better value out in the city but the Tagines at the Riad were very tasty, we also highly highly recommend their Chicken Pastilla's which Fatima made for us on request, amazing.
The location is easy to find once you know your way round the city, its right next to the Souks and a short walk to the main square. Just following the instructions the first few times and you get to know it pretty quickly.
Lastly one of the highlights of the Riad was just the open feel to the place, it was great being able to read on the rooftop as the sun went down. The whole place felt like a little haven while still being quintessentially Moroccan.
