My wife and I stayed at this riad for 4 nights and there's really nothing negative to say about it, on the contrary only very good things. We arranged airport pickup which was useful as it could be hard to find the first time. It's more than what you'd pay for a taxi but worth the smooth arrival. We had lunch once in the riad: best tajine I had in Marrakesh by far and nice to be able to have beer in the riad: not all have that. You pay European prices or even slightly more for this, but it's very tasty and nice as a ones off meal, especially as the first one in Marrakesh.
The pool on the roof is definitely the highlight of the riad for me. We bathed in it every day during the hot hours of the day and it's such a blessed refreshment in this hectic city. Definitely recommended to break the day in 2 parts with a return to the riad for a swim in the afternoon if you've got the time to do so. It's really only 10 minutes walking to jama el fna and it is a good thing to be just outside of it. The riad staff is all super friendly and professional and the atmosphere very peaceful. Everything super clean, new and in good condition. Again, we really enjoyed our stay. I can honestly say choosing this riad booted our trip to Marrakesh from being good to excellent. Highly recommended.
