I would thoroughly recommend this riad. One of the biggest and best breakfasts and evening meals we had during our 16 day stay in Morocco. Excellent location and easy to find...we arrived by car at night in the middle of a major rain storm with minimal problems. The location is minutes from the souk and has a convenient parking area just around the corner. As is the norm in Morocco the outside of the building masks the beauty inside and this riad is truly beautiful and the most spacious of all the riads we visited during our trip. However it is the people that make this riad special and it starts at the top with the manager Hassan. They are all sincere in wishing that this be a most pleasant stay for the visitor (a sentiment that we experienced often in Morocco but this riad took it to a new level). We were booked in a ground floor room but were immediately upgraded on arrival to an upper level superior room for no other reason that it was available. Over our mint tea, we enquired as to whether there would be a price difference but were politely told not to worry about it. The rooms were just what you'd want if you are looking for something different and special, spacious, clean and wonderfully decorated. At checkout Hassan accepted our credit card (although he prefers cash) but as always the customer came first and he met our needs! We did not find the medina over powering however would recommend that if you do not wish to visit the leather/carpet shops, etc then make it clear to your guide at the beginning.
