A warning first: the Riad was a bit difficult to find, because the location shown on most maps (like booking.com) is quite inprecise. It is actually located in Rue Imam el Ghazali, right after the end of the Bahia Pallace. Looking for a place in Marrakech without knowing its precise location can be a bit intimidating given the constant harassment by the cloud of touts and would-be guides surrounding you, especially if you walk around with luggage and a guidebook in your hand.
The staff were very friendly and the place is charming. The rooftop terrace with a hammam is particularly nice. The breakfast was basic (pastries, bread, jam, juice, coffee) but tasty. The room (Opal suite) was not big, but adequate size and stylish. It only had a window to the patio, which means that there was no street noise, although it could be loud as long as people were dining/drinking there.
There was free wireless internet.
