I stayed at Riad Lakdar for five nights with a friend. From the moment we arrived the staff were very helpful and polite, though when the owner is not around it would be best to speak French to a higher standard than I managed! It is easy to find and peaceful, yet only a 6-7 minute walk from the Place Jemaa el Fna. The room was clean and tidy and breakfast was filling. We were able to return in the afternoon to escape the heat every day without any difficulties. We were offered a meal one evening for 160DH, which beat the restaurant meals we had encountered elsewhere for both the taste and the generous servings. We also took up the offer of a trip to the Ourika valley, which was more expensive than arranging a trip ourselves would have been but was far more relaxing. Looking at the rates on offer for other Riads I would say this one seems very good value. It is true that there is not much flexibility over things such as breakfast times etc. but, given the cost, I would rather that was compromised than safety, location or cleanliness.
