This is a great Riad a short walk from Djemaa El-Fna. You are very close to most attractions and my partner and I walked everywhere. It is also conveniently situated close to a small square which boasted shops (shop around in the markets first as the prices here are clearly for naïve tourists) and bars. Most people we met recommended the Kosybar as it is one of the few places which serve a good selection of alcohol, or alcohol full stop in the case of Morocco!
At the Riad we stayed in the suite on the roof which came with a private balcony - however, other guests were not aware that the private area above our room with its own bed was for this room only. There were two occasions when we could hear people above our heads at night which is really upsetting when you've paid for a romantic extra. If you choose to upgrade as we did, please double check with staff that they will make sure it is clearer to other guests that the very top balcony is expressly for your use only.
That little negative aside, the Riad was fantastic and the staff could not have been more helpful. It is very peaceful and there is enough distance between you and the hustle and bustle that the only thing that may bring you out of your sleep will be the prayers - which get blasted out of speakers at regular points through the day. This however really adds to the atmosphere and is a wonderful sound (apart from very first thing in the morning). WiFi is also lacking and my other half kept going for random walks around the Riad to try and pick up signal; so if you need to log onto your bank, or check emails etc, this can be a bit of a headache. Also we went to a Hammam, Saadian Tombs, Souqs, lots of eateries and drunk our bodyweight in Fresh orange juice and Mint Tea - which you must, and you really won't be disappointed. I also couldn't get enough of the Tajine's. Sorry, I digress; the Riad is excellent, and the airport transfers were great. The price was reasonable and I would recommend the Riad Dar One to any person heading to Marrakesh.
