눉There wasn't really anything to complain about with the property. The only thing I can think of is the bed was a bit hard. Apart from that I had no problems during my stay.
눇Loved the central location, right in the heart of the riads with the locals. After a day I pretty much knew my way around. Hamid and his family were perfect hosts and always made sure we had everything we needed and offered us help whenever we asked. Property was good value for money. Would stay again.

눉As already explained, it might be a bit hard to find, but if you contact Hamid he will most possibly be happy to pick you up somewhere, so that you do not get lost in the little streets of Marrakech. Another point would be that there are no keys to lock your room - but we can definitely say that the family is totally trustworthy and that there is no need to be worried.
눇We decided to go to Riah Ben Salah because we saw such beautiful pictures at booking.com. When we came to Marrakech we were even more excited about the Riad. Hamid, the owner, is such a friendly person. He arranged an airport transfer for us which was 150 Dirham for two persons - more expensive than the bus (number 19, 30DH per person) or a taxi. But we would really recommend taking the transfer because the driver will pick you up directly after the arrival hall at the airport and drive you as far as he can go into the little streets of Marrakech old town. From there Hamid will pick you up :) Definitely a better option as the Riad might be a bit hard to find for the first time. Once you have been there finding the way again is easy :) Also the big square Djamâa El-Fna is about a 5 minute walk, the souks as well and best of it: You never have to be scared - we are two girls and never had a bad feeling walking home, also when it was dark. Now coming to the Riad: it looks exactly like on the pictures - very clean (they clean the bathroom every day) and really beautiful and cosy. We had a really nice room for two with a comfortable bed, the bathroom was next to our room. First we were a bit confused because locking the door (with a key) is not possible. However, the owner family is really nice and totally trustworthy. We had a lot of fun talking with them. Another highlight: the breakfast! We could decide where we would prefer having it and we always went for the rooftop terasse - such a nice way to start your day! Breakfast was really good (with eggs and fresh orange juice) and more than enough! To sum it up, it was a bit like a home in Marrakech. Thanks to Hamid and his nice family we could not have had a better option to stay in that beautiful city. Definitely worth it :)

눉Bathroom door was very stiff and hard to lock, but each room had it's own bathroom so I didn't really mind leaving it unlocked. Wasn't made clear what we could or could not use, other than the bedroom, so didn't make much use of the kitchen until the 4th day of our stay when we saw another couple storing their own food in the fridge; could have saved a bit of money on snacks that way.
눇The people were very friendly and helpful, helped us book various activities and invited us to join them for meals in the evening when they broke their fast, offered to make us breakfast and tea during the day even though they were fasting. One man came to meet us in the main square when we arrived, and then walked us back out again when we were trying to find a particular restaurant. Nicely decorated, brilliant rooftop terrace (though the WiFi signal wasn't strong enough to reach my phone from us there), located 5 mins from the center of the town, and all the neighbors were quick to offer directions (and the kids were especially fond of including me in a game of tag against my will haha).
