A bit difficult to find. The whole of the medina is confusing with lots of small roads and alleys. The staff at the riad are very friendly. The rooms are clean and cosy and a decent size as well. Well worth the money. Breakfast is simple but tasty. Excellent customer service. Good location not too far from the main square.

You wouldn't know from the outside, but the Riad is such a nice place. It's quite small and very pretty. Breakfast was excellent, and the roof-top terrace is a great place to relax. The staff was very helpful and inviting. The Rias is further from the main square than a lot of other places, but walking to the square through... More

Just returned from this Riad, had a great time. Farniente is a little basic but excellent value and very clean. The staff were very welcoming and could not do enough for us, especially Khoula (nothing was too much, big thank you to her) We had 4 of the 5 rooms so it really felt like home from home. Roof terrace... More

I had the best time staying at this Riad. It was my first time in Morocco and the staff, Khaoula and Simo Mahamid were so friendly and helpful and really took me under their wing as I was travelling on my own. Really clean, great breakfast and the evening meal tangines were to dye for!!! Will definitely stay here again.

First: you get lost if you are not a local, but also other places must be as hard as this one to reach. Second: take ages to go to the square. It's not so far but is easy to find the wrong way to get there and to go back to the hotel Third: credit card is not working, they... More

Lovely riad with homely atmosphere, staff here are very hard-working especially Mohammed who seems to work all night and still be up to serve breakfast in the morning, and the chef whose name I don't know - but she served us a wonderful lemon and chicken tagine! For anyone who doesn't speak French, I'd advise taking a phrasebook as in... More

They have 2 suits and 3 normal rooms. We stayed 4 nights for €25 per night in normal room. Room is not very big, but has air conditioning and wifi. Strong warm shower. You can enjoy your breakfast in the sun on the roof terrace. Staff is friendly and speaks pretty good English/Spanish. When ordered in advance, you can enjoy... More

Achingly cool - with classic vintage movie posters all over. Black and white decor. Fantastic courtyard with a lovely pool and seating area. The manager was friendly and helped us out with a room last minute. The room was fantastic, with lots of space, a lovely bed and a good air-conditioner. The bathroom was very modern and trendy (careful when... More
