My boyfriend and I recently spent 8 nights in this beautiful, authentic and unique riad. I couldn't be happier with our experience here and would highly recommend anyone to stay here.
Rooms: all unique in Moroccan design, good sizes, comfortable & spotlessly clean. There is a lot of attention to detail too which makes the rooms more than just a place to lay your head, but a relaxing space to come back to after a chaotic day in Marrakech. The water is always hot & they have beautiful smelling products in the bathroom too!
Staff: are marvellous! Both brothers and the girls working with them honestly cannot do more to make you feel welcome, special and cared for. No request is too much trouble and they did all they could to make sure we made the most of our time in morocco; lending advice whenever they could.
Facilities: I guess I care more about wifi than I like to let on. - it's free here and the signal was strong enough to reach our room on the second floor.
The plunge pool isn't really for swimming but it was nice to dip your feet in when arriving back from the souk!
Warnings: it's about a 10/15 min walk from the main square and souk. This in itself isn't an issue, however we both struggled with the pollution walking along the main road which sounds a bit pathetic but it really gets to you after a while. However we did find a great little back route into the madina which perhaps took a little longer but was far more pleasurable - when you get to the mosque where you get dropped on arrival, don't wind round to the right and up that Main Street, instead head straight - it looks like a little back ally... Follow this straight all the way until you get to a police station and go straight again.
Also I agree with other reviewers - the breakfast isn't brilliant. However the coffee is lovely & the juice is freshly squeezed each day. There is a great patisserie on the route I mentioned if you need a break from the bread! You can't miss it.
Lastly, get the transfer from the airport - more than worth it as it would be impossible to find on your own. I found it helpful to take photos of the route I travelled at first, just to help me get my bearings!
Perhaps bring earplugs if you're sensitive to noise. The birds and the mosque start early - but I think this would apply to ANYWHERE in Marrakech!
I really don't think you could be disappointed staying here. It's true value for money and you feel noticed by the staff which is nice. It's so well maintained that you get far more for your money here than you do in many of the more expensive places we visited in the city. I really hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!!
(Lastly, if booking a tour to the desert etc, use a bigger more reputable company - research it from home at least. It isn't worth losing two of your holiday days on a minibus like we did!!)
