I recently visited Riad Lakhdar with my friend who had stayed there a couple of months previously. One of the Riad owners helpfully collected us from the Airport (for a good price) and took us the short journey (about 10 minutes) to the Riad.
The Riad itself is lovely, I hadn't stayed in a Riad before and I instantly fell in love with the traditional decor and outdoor/indoor courtyard. It was all very relaxed and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. On arrival we were given our pick of the available rooms and served the most delicious mint tea.
The Riad is really conveniently placed for the old town and the new town is only a short walk away. They also offer a taxi service, which is much better value for money than grabbing a cab from the street.
We stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely relaxed breakfast each morning on the roof terrace.
One evening I returned early with a headache and was immediately offered a mint tea by the staff, which was very thoughtful.
During our time there we visited a lovely Hammam called Les Bains de Azahara, just around the corner too.
The only thing we didn't get around to doing was getting a henna tattoo, which we later discovered the Riad could have organised for us! Next time!
Would definitely recommend Riad Lakhdar.
