We had a lovely 4 day stay at the Ryad Mogador Marrakech! It's positioned very, very close to the medina and Jema El Fnaa square - make sure you ask for a room facing the old town for a breathtaking daily view (see my video on this hotel).
Reception spoke good English, although you have to wait usually until you get some attention, since it's always very crowded and very few receptionists.
Except for the bellboy who was trying to 'fix' us up with a cab to the airport at departure for triple its cost, all staff were excellent, spoke good English and always had a smile on their face, making everything seem possible.
There was no Internet in the room, yet a very fast and reliable connection is available in the bar/bistro and reception lobby. Careful though, there's only on public electricity outlet on the ground floor, so make sure you take the couch first!
The hotel itself is huge and unfortunately has only two elevators, which can turn out to be a bit frustrating at times. There's also a supermarket literally nextdoor.
All rooms feature double windows and are rather silent; generous with space, we had a television and a bathtub in the bathroom. Everything was well kept, clean and shiny. The housekeepers on the floor made a constant impression of cleanliness.
Breakfast was the usual buffet as throughout Morocco with butter, bread, jam, a weird salami, toast, tea, coffee and orange juice plus pastry products.
The only downside of this hotel would be the advertised swimming pool, which is actually very, very, very small and although it can be 40 degrees outside the water is impossible to bathe in because they keep pumping ice-cold water in it - it was mind boggling. It's also somewhere in the back of the first floor, allowing for only 3-4 hours of full sun coming in.
