This Riad is an absolutely brilliant place to stay if you are travelling to Marrakech. It is beautifully decorated with lots of different areas to sit and take in the surroundings. The main foyer area where we had breakfast if stunning and very tranquil with the fountain filled with roses and the birds chirping. There are couches in the common area of the first floor to sit where we used the free wifi (still worked in the room but with a weaker connection) and then the outdoor roof area is brilliant, with loungers if you feel like taking in the sunshine or shaded tables to play cards (or they have some boardgames available) or sit and plan your route in the medina. There is even a little turtle that scurries around you.
Three of us stayed in the room with one double and one single, beautifully decorated with our own bathroom. As far as I can tell no riad rooms are big but you don't spend that much time in them so space isn't a concern and this one was relatively large.
Julien & Françoise are fantastic hosts. All of the recommendations Julien made when we asked for places to visit for lunch or dinner were excellent. And the hammam nearby that Julien arranged for us to visit was a great (and luxurious) experience - do it. I would also advise taking them up on the offer of an airport, or in our case train station, transfer so that you can be taken right to the door on the first time as it would be hard to find on your own. Once you're there it is easy to find your way back to a main 'road' to the square and work your way around the souks.
Highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Marrakech. Thanks Julien & Françoise for providing such a lovely place from which to explore the city.
