We arrived really late at night and our pre arranged taxi was there waiting at the airport as planned. Mohammed (the lovely owner) then met us on the main road to walk us down. I'm not going to lie - it was late, dark and first impressions of the little alleyway were not good. We were terrified! However, once inside the riad it was absolutely beautiful. A real haven away from busy Marrakech. We 'braved' walking outside alone to find the main square that night and it was fine. By the end of the trip we felt quite silly for feeling so scared!
Our room wasn't huge but perfectly fine for our needs - the bathroom was lovely and spotlessly clean.
The breakfast was a highlight - we managed to get the rooftop table most mornings and it was absolutely beautiful. Eating breakfast outside in the February sun was a real treat. We had boiled eggs, bread, pancakes and yogurt if I remember rightly along with fresh orange juice and coffee.
The only niggle we had was during the booking process - I originally booked five nights then we decided to change our flights so I cancelled the booking and re booked for six nights. I then emailed the riad to arrange an airport transfer about a week before we were due to arrive but they had got our bookings confused and not realised we were booked in again so weren't expecting us. Stressful day trying to sort it all out and Mohammed got us a room for 5 nights but had to arrange 1 night in a nearby Riad. It worked out OK for us as we'd planned to go to the mountains anyway so just went on that day. A little stressful at the time but it all got sorted out so not a big problem.
All in all we had a great time and I highly recommend staying.
