I stumbled upon this place when moving from my previous place in Centre Ville to Medina, and I thought I will give a try to a small riad for a change. It is so amazingly located just off the main touristic entrance to the Medina - Bab Boujloud, and off the main Medina artery - Talaa Kbira. So it is easy to find, just one or two passages away from Café Clock which is well known and has a sign. So, even if you cannot find it, just ask the Café people who will be glad to help.
What I liked about this riad is that it is small and intimate, and though it is so close to the main street, I found it quiet and tranquil. As you can see from the pictures, it is not overly decorated, and it is freshly renovated (as the owner told me), which is a great plus.
The owner - Madame Najiba is a fine lady who speaks French and Italian, and we spent several evenings talking about life in Morocco and discussing various topics as she is very knowledgeable. The breakfast which she made for me every evening was very delicious, with great coffee and fresh orange juice.
The rooms are quite spacious given that it is a riad (some can be very small), so there was enough place for all my luggage, and the storage area was generous. The only thing I could say I missed maybe was the shower courtain, but it was no big deal.
Probably the best thing about this riad is its proximity to Bou Inania medersa with its minaret right in your face when you walk up to the terrace. I had a lovely meal one night at the terrace when Madam Najiba made pastilla according to her Fassi family recipes. Overall, this riad had its charm and left a very positive mark on me. Very much recommended!
