“Awesome stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

My mother and I stayed for 5 nights in December. The staff absolutely made our stay fantastic! They went above and beyond their duties on my mother's birthday. They decorated the dining room and got a Moroccan birthday cake from the best baker in the Medina! The hotel manager, Abdul was so kind. We requested dinner for our arrival night and honestly it was the best meal I had in Morocco and one of the best meals of my life! The Riad is inside the Medina, easy 10-20 min walk to Jemaa el-Fnaa (main square), museums, gardens, etc. They have a private hammam (Turkish bath) on site, special rate if you stay several nights, definitely worth doing at least once! Breakfast was simple Moroccan fare, but delicious: breads, honey, preserves, fruit, juice, coffee. Agree with other reviews, the beds could be more comfortable. It wasn't that big of a deal to me, I was always exhausted by the end of the day and slept well. Fantastic cultural experience staying at a Riad instead of a hotel! Of note: Staff spoke French, Spanish, Arabic, very little English. If you're not fluent in one of these it may make staying here difficult, unless they've hired English speaking staff.

Room Tip: If you're offered dinner on your arrival, do it! A little pricey by Moroccan standards but one o...

In the summer of 88 I went to Greece. Many times we slept on the beach to safe money. I unpacked my backpackers matras. Slept on my belly because the ground was to hard. As hard as wood.
This Riad gives you the same sleeping experience if you choose to take the suite. The bed is as hard as wood. The room is great. The staff is great. The location is great. But the bed, the most imported part of your hotel is not great.

We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful Riad. We had the Eiden suite, a big room with large luxurious bathroom. Service was good. Unfortunately the bed ruined the experience for me. It felt like sleeping on wood

バスターミナルからもフナ広場からも歩いて10分以内というロケーションの良さ。
私はメディナの中で迷子になるかと思ったが、ホテルに電話をすると迎えに来てくれ、わかりやすい目印を教えてくれながらホテルまで案内してくれた。
フナ広場からの道順は単純で、とても分かりやすく、私たちは道に迷うことはなかった。また、ホテル周辺は、夜暗くなっても不安なことはなかった。
メディナの中心にありながら、ホテルの中は信じられないくらい静か。
チェックインするとすぐにミントティーとモロッコ伝統菓子をサービスしてくれた。
私たちはバスの移動でとても疲れていたので、嬉しかった!
モロッコ式朝食は量がたっぷり!
オレンジジュース(搾り立てのフレッシュジュースで、とてもおいしい!)、モロッコ風クレープ、モロッコ風パンケーキ、丸くて大きいパン、コーヒー(コーヒーとミルクはポットに入れてサービスしてくれるので、たっぷり飲めてうれしい!)
ホテルの内装・客室の中は、モロッコ風調度品が品よく配置されている。
客室のバス・トイレはドアで区切られておらず、壁で仕切られているだけだが、親しい関係の2人が泊まるには問題がない。
ホテルのスタッフはフレンドリーで、とても優しく接してくれる。
ホテルでは砂漠へのツアーなども手配可能だが、無理な勧誘もせず、私たちが必要な情報だけを与えてくれる。だから、嫌な思いもせず、快適に過ごせた。
このロケーションと朝食と静かさを考えると、宿泊代金は大変リーズナブルだと思う。


Goodness of its location within a 10-minute walk from the square Funa and from the bus terminal.
I think I have become lost in the Medina. But I called the hotel, one staff came to pick us up and he guided us to the hotel with telling us descriptive mark.
Directions from the square Funa is simple and very easy to understand, we did not get lost. Also, around the hotel was never dangerous even darker in the night.
While in the heart of the Medina, it is very quiet in a hotel, I can't believe it.
As soon as we checked-in the hotel,the staff served the traditional Moroccan mint tea and Moroccan pastry.
Since I was very tired by the movement of the bus, we were happy!
Moroccan breakfast is plenty of volume!
Orange juice(freshly-squeezed juice, very tasty!) ,large Moroccan bread , Moroccan crepe, Moroccan pancakes, milk and coffee (milk and coffee serviced in the pot,so I was happy to drink a lot! )
Moroccan furniture is well placed in the room, the interior of the hotel are traditional Moroccan .
Bath and toilet are not separated by a door, but only are separated by a wall, but there is no problem with two people have a close relationship to stay.
The staff are friendly and treat us very gently.
They can arrange some tours to the desert, but they never push to sell, they gave us only the information we need without any solicitation unreasonable. So, we could stay very comfortable!
I think the breakfast and quiet location and this price, it is very reasonable accommodation.
Thank you Abdul !
