I was staying at this Riad early October and it had a very good location, right in the middle of the medina. The disadvantage of the location is that its very close to the mosque, so be prepared for morning prayers. My room was spacious (with a small sofa and table in the middle) and had a very Moroccan charm.... More

I was booked into this hotel by Around Morocco Tours and was really thankful for their expertise in picking the good spots. I stayed here with a friend for 3 days in March. It is in a fabulous spot in the Medina where all I had to do was just roll out the front door and spend my money in... More

Maison du sud was two buildings. It is now a stunningly arranged riad with what were two central courtyards that are now covered in stained glass covers. The walls in the public areas are adorned with ever changing contemporary art works. Other reviewers have commented on the stairs but my room ( Room 2) was on the first floor which... More

This riad is located only 5 minutes from the coast ,harbor and fortress. It was a perfect place to stay when exploring the area and photographing the seagulls. It is a very old structure located in the medina so ceilings are either very high or low. The steps going to the loft (family room) were a little uneven, but this... More

I stayed here for one night last week and must say it is a beautiful Riad! My room wasn't the quietest but the kind hospitality of the staff made up for it. Special thanks to Brahim for his advice on shopping! I am still admiring the 3 lovely art pieces I bought from the gallery :-)

Beautiful building with rose petals in fountains, like being in Arabian Nights! Very helpful staff, good breakfast and perfect situation in town. Perfect roof terrace for afternoon snoozes. All rooms seem to be different which only adds the charm.

This riad is described as being 18th century. On the ground floor it has plenty of public space, suitable for dining or catching up with wi-fi and decorated with many original works of art, paintings as well as sculptures. Elsewhere, It is small and narrow, negotiable only by narrow staircases winding around the enclosed courtyards below. There were 55 difficult... More

This hotel is on one of the main streets of the medina, where motor traffic is banned so luggage is transported by handcart. It appears to be two riads joined together and is filled with artworks. Very helpful staff and its a few minutes walk of the harbour and beach and right in the old town. Its not licensed to... More
