This riad was in a great location in the Old Town. The rooms were clean and tastefully decorated, and the air conditioning functioned well to ensure a good night's sleep. The peace and quiet of the riad makes it feel a world away from the hagglers and chaos of the city- yet it is right in the middle of it.
Upstairs there is a lovely terrace with views of the Old Town where breakfast is served. Breakfast itself is available until 11am (great for the jetlagged!) and is Moroccan style, so mainly pancake/bread items (ie no eggs). There is also a small plunge pool up on the terrace with a number of pool/lounge chairs to relax on.
Note for those interested:
(1) The riad does not serve any alcohol, but does have a restaurant that serves meals and non-alcoholic drinks.
(2) Transportation: We needed a one-way transfer from Marrakech up to Mazagon Resort (near El Jajida, on the coast approx 100 kms from Casablanca) and used the following company:
We negotiated a rate of 850 dirhams - this was for an air conditioned van and a safe/prudent driver, private transfer (I think the same price would apply even if the van were full, and it seated about 6 passengers comfortably).
I understand the same company may do airport transfers for 10 euros (cheaper than the 15 euros charged by the riad).
