My two girlfriends and I stayed here for a week at the end of August. It took about 20 hot, sweaty minutes to walk to the main square but although at times this was inconvenient, we felt we got to see the 'real Marrakech' on the walk. Besides, you can always take a taxi.
We had a triple ensuite room which was beautiful and clean with much-needed air con and plenty of hot water. Our beds were made every day and clean towels every other day. The plunge pool was brilliant in the scorching heat.
The owners of the riad were very friendly though we feel we would have struggled a little if I hadn't been able to speak French. However, the lady made sure we had everything we wanted and warned us of the dangers of being 3 young women in this city, as well as giving us a map, directions, and info on places to visit.
Breakfast was adequate- coffee, mint tea or orange juice, and crepes with jam and traditional bread, but we would have liked some fruit too. There was the option to eat in the riad for dinner but we were slightly disappointed so I wouldn't recommend this- you can find much cheaper, tastier food locally or in the square.
All in all, a lovely place to stay, I would thoroughly recommend it, and brilliant value for the price!
