Booked this through hipmarrakech.com and found the riad to be a lovely place to stay, away from the hubbub of the souks and Jemaa el Fna.
We were picked up from the airport in a taxi and taken personally to the riad where we met with Mohammed the manager. Hajiba had cooked us a meal for our arrival which was excellent.
The walk down to the Jemaa el Fna is about 20 minutes through the souks and easy to find the way after a couple of trial runs. Coming back after dark we preferred to get a taxi to nearby Bab Taghazout and walk the last 300m or so. Very easy. If we'd been in trouble we could have always phoned Mohammed!
The Riad was clean, well decorated, and (we stayed on the ground floor) NOT DAMP!!!
All in all a brilliant stay - assuming I return to Marrakech in teh future I'll happily stay here again.
