I did a fair bit of research before choosing this Riad and my choice was spot on!
It lived up to everything we have read about it or were expecting.
Location - 15 min walk away from the Jamaa el Fna Sq - thus we could get away from the hustle and bustle and see the local life as we were walking to the more tourist places.
Location wise, you can also take a short cut to the Medersa and the Larousse area, which I highly recommend - quieter and more interesting shopping, not like in the souks.
Room - Yassin suite highly recommended. There is aircon/heating in each room if you need it, we did not. Cleanliness - to the level it should be.
The Riad is very close to Bab Dukala Mosque, so light sleepers should have this in mind. This did not bother us, on the opposite - added to the charm and authenticity of the experience.
Breakfast - prepared on the spot, sumptuous - rotating local pancakes with other local "stuff", fresj orange juice the norm.
Staff - the young man at reception was very friendly and informative. We did not use the riad's tourist services as we travelled by rentacar. There is a parking lot nearby, easy to find, inexpensive.
There is a hammam close by - I tried it - more of a tourist experience, would recommend a local one, there is one near the Medersa.
If we visit Marrakech again, we plan to stay at this Riad again!
