Marrakesh can be hard work so was nice to be in quite a bustling part of the city but be in perfect peace and quiet inside the Riad. The staff couldn't have been more considerate, helpful and friendly - to the extent of lending us cash when we had had trouble with the ATMs! The room was pleasant and comfortable - the strewn rose petals were a nice touch. The public areas esp the roof terrace were comfortable and interestingly and attractively decorated. We had our meal there the night we arrived and it was one of the two best meals we had the whole of our stay. The location was excellent, all the major attractions of the medina within walking distance but away from the major crowds. Mind you, we like to walk, if you don't you can pick up a taxi from outside the nearby Bab Ksiba or the staff will order you one. We loved it and would go back and recommend it to others. I'd say however that any traditional Riad is not the place for you if you expect your accommodation to provide entertainment and all 21st century hotel mod cons. Steep stairs, open plunge pools, lots of ornaments make them, I think, unsuitable for small children. Paying electronically we found could be a problem throughout Morocco; one problem is actually connections, we had probs at ATMs, and as for credit cards remember they get less money if you pay by card and Morocco is not a rich country.
