First off, to those few who have complained about this Riad, remember you are staying in Marrakech for a more than adequate price, and at a PRIME LOCATION. Taxi drop off is just a 2 minute walk from the riad, they can send someone to meet you if required.
The host, Gian-Paolo, is a charming man, very welcoming and was always inquiring about my needs. The rest of the staff was also very professional, special thanks to Mohammed who has made my life easier during my stay!
The room I had was number 6 I believe, a suite with a private balcony on the first floor of the riad (note this was a COMPLIMENTARY upgrade from the room I had initially booked). Room size is more than adequate, remember this is a Riad, not a five star hotel!
As for the location, you cannot ask for a better one in this price-quality range. Literally a 7 minute walk from Jemaa el Fna place, close to many other attractions as well. Overall this was the best 3 nights of my 12 night Moroccan trip.
