We recently stayed 4 nights in this Riad. As others have written, it is a good idea to arrange to be met just around the corner by the staff, who will help with bags, as the Riad is hidden in a maze of alleys, which is very much a part of its charm. We stayed in the grand suite in the newer part of the Riad, which was a great room, with very good bathroom and a bath the size of a four man sarcophagus behind the four poster bed in the main room. As stated by other reviewers, it could do with a small wardrobe and drawers, although we understand that this is being rectified this summer. Also, to those complaining about the noise, this is a Riad in the heart of the Medina, where people work and pray at all hours - if you want total quiet, go to a soulless air conditioned box in the hotels in the new town.
We booked a day trip in a private 4x4 in the Atlas Mountains through Patrice, the owner. Whilst this was more expensive than some tours you can get, our driver was a knowledgeable berber from the region and kept us away from the tourist traps and this was certainly worth the extra money.
If you want luxury 5 minutes from the Souks, this is the place for you. Very good quality linen and towels, spotlessly clean, great breakfasts on the roof terrace, wonderfully helpful and cheerful staff led by Patrice. I would not hesitate to return here next time we come to Marrakech as what you get for your money is exceptional.
