I stayed at Riad Nomades over New Year. The courtyard and roof area is pretty. But then in Marrakech it is very difficult to have an unattractive courtyard. Pierre and Pascal work hard to provide a good breakfast in the morning, however it is very sweet in focus. The room I stayed in was very dark which is also maybe not that unusual in Marrakech. The bathroom was tiny and adequate. If you are seduced by the images of the courtyard and roof then please note that the bathroom will be a disappointment. Despite being a non-smoking room, there was a very strong smell of cigarette smoke in the room and the bathroom. If you find this unpleasant then I would not recommend this riad. We did have a nice day out with Pascal driving to Essaouira, but note you will have to pay for trips like this in cash. I had some trouble on the last day when I had to pay for airport transfers with cash - in fact they took all my dirhams which effectively stranded me in the souk for 5 hours until I left for the airport. Note that they are not flexible on taking credit cards. Also note that the riad is a good 10 mins walk from the taxi rank and that you will have to carry your luggage yourself. The riad is in the middle of the souk and is quiet. I stayed at a Riad two years ago in the Kasbah and found myself very nostalgic for the rooms and the service. To summarise, if you are cool with smoking smell, carry lots of cash and are happy to carry your bags through the souks then you should consider staying here.
