Excellent location, just on the edge (outside) the old, labyrynthine medina. Beautifully done. The courtyard is gorgeous. We had four rooms, they were each beautifully appointed, the bathrooms pretty and clean. Nice little rooftop with great view.
Extremely kind and hospitable staff. We looked forward to getting back to our riad just to hang out there, we loved it so much.
Riad owner has a friend who hosts dinners at his place - we ate there one night. The friend picked us up and dropped us off. The food was delish. Since there isn't much to do in the medina after dark, this was nice. The other night, we ate at Riad Ahlam. Fatiha, the cook, is incredible! I took a cooking lesson and helped make dinner. Her tajines were the best we ate in our 13-day trip touring all of Morocco.
Breakfasts are good, though eggs or some protein would be good. It's usually a spread of 3-4 different kinds of fried bread. Plus yogurt, orange juice and tea. One thing in Morocco: if you don't want mint tea, the offering is the worst kind: a Lipton bag. If you're serious about your tea, carry a few Twinings teabags with you. :)
