This is a very basic Riad and probably a tad overpriced for what it has to offer. We stayed for a week (which in ths area of the city was too long) but luckily had the largest of the 4 rooms so it was not too claustrophobic. We found Fatima the cook/maid to be very helpful and cheerful (and so... More

We stayed here and were disappointed. The place is very cramped and the rooms are tiny. The shower room is cramped and very rudimentary - water from the shower covered the whole floor quickly and did not drain for about an hour! The houskeeper was friendly (but spoke no English which is fair enough). No assistance with any tours or... More

We booked this for a value for money getaway over New Year & Dar Aicha did not disappoint. Good things are the location-in the middle of the Medina for that real Morroccan experience (although get them to meet you from the airport or you might never find it), decor-simple, but beautifully traditional and the food. Breakfast was simple but tasty,... More

It is an Arabian fantasy. Romantic and well furnished with an inner courtyard open to the skies and a tinkling fountain. A true harem delight. Unfortunately this... More

You do need to contact them (somehow!) before you arrive for them to meet you (free pick up) otherwise you may be left knocking on the door - if you ever find it. This Riad is very pleasant and Fatama is an excellent housekeeper - the rooms were very clean and breakfast was good with freshly squeezed juice each day.... More

This place is great. The riad is simple and beautiful, with three separate sitting areas and a roof terrace. It is the perfect place to relax after the hustle and bustle of the medina. The staff are exceptional and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The breakfast prepared by Fatima was fantastic and included freshly squezed... More
