Very kind hosts right from the beginning with a warm welcome and complementary mint tea and pastries. Helpful tips on exploring city. Would strongly suggest to do the sunset camel excursion. Breakfast on the rooftop was fantastic! We also had the private dinner by the fire place and this was a unique experience. Can't go wrong going to this place.... More

The riat is situated in the Medina. You can feel like you are local living there. The staff of the riat was extremely helpful! We felt ourselves like home. Please see my pictures which will tell you everything about rooms, design and views from the roof top and breakfast. I loved this riat! and highly recommend it!
