“Loved the Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2007

Got back from a 4 night stay in the Riad Habib a few weeks ago. The riad is in a quiet street in the Mouassine district of the Medina. It is just a few minutes walk from the souks and the main square.

Our room (Fatima) was clean and tidy with a particularly comfortable bed (firm) which suited my aching back. The room was tidied every day.

The riad is well furnished in traditional Moroccan style. However I suspect that it was part of the first wave of foreign owned riads and this probably explains why the riad is now looking a little tired. There is some peeling paint, cracks in the walls and loose plaster work but this should not put off potential visitors. I am sure it will not be long before the Swiss owners undertake some redecoration work.

The riad’s slight air of shabbiness is more than main up by the attitude of the staff. Amina, the manager, and her staff where perfect hosts – very friendly, attentive and keen to meet our needs. All spoke a little English - with Amina speaking very good English – although she didn’t think so herself!

  • Liked — Traditiional deco, great staff and firm bed
  • Disliked — In need of redecoration
  • Stayed April 2007, traveled as a couple
