Wonderful little riad in the medina, but comfortingly away from the center. We were looked after like family, enjoyed daily continental breakfasts with fresh squeezed orange juice, and had one truly memorable dinner in house when we were both medinaed out (thanks Neza!).
A note on the benefits of being outside the tourist medina - it's far less stressful. When you go outside and stop for a minute, people flow by without noticing... nobody tries to get you to eat in a restaurant, buy a carpet, try a date, hire them as a guide or get a henna tattoo. If you want to be able to come and go comfortably from a charming little hotel and not always be a marked target for direct sales aficionados, this is an ideal option.
I'd go again without question.
