We stayed four nights in this riad, and I cannot fault it for anything. It's a beautiful building, with beautiful rooms. We stayed in two different ones, and yes, there was a bit of paint peeling off one of the bathroom walls (referring back to another review I read), but to be honest, I couldn't care less about peeling paint. The rooms were indeed serviced while we were staying (again referring to an earlier review), the showers were always hot, the breakfast in the courtyard was yummy and set us up for exploring Marrakesh! Also there are some birds nesting in the building which provide wonderful breakfast entertainment. The roof terrace is comfy and beautiful and the perfect place to relax after hiking in the Atlas.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Not all of them are English-speaking, but there are definitely staff there who do (again in reply to an earlier review). With everybody else, a bit of basic French and smiles sort out any language barrier. Staff were always at hand when we needed anything and always with a welcoming smile.
The only thing that didn't work out during our stay was the airport pickup, but this was a general problem on the day and I wouldn't want to fault the riad team for this.
This place is excellent value for money and I would book there again - also for its superb location right around the corner from the Djeema el Fna. (Which means that you might be woken up by the early morning call to prayer - personally this is beautiful in itself and a small price to pay).
