I could never have imagined how lovely and luxurious this Riad would be based on its reasonable rate. Nicholas and his staff are wonderfully attentive to all needs, from the mint tea and almond cookies to the rose petal heart on our bed (it was our honeymoon).
The rooms are very lavishly and tastefully decorated. We had a larger suite, but even the smaller rooms seem very comfortable. Barely heard other guests or even the call to prayer from the ground floor.
The terasse is a great place to lounge and catch some rays or have a moonlight dinner prepared by the Riad's great cook, Fatima. Each meal was a delight, especially the cold salads (eggplant, green beans, zucchini.. Yum) and the lamb and plum Tagine. Also highly recommend the onsite hammam for a good scrub and massage.
Nicholas was very knowledgeable about places to visit, good buys at the souk and even some more off the beaten path experiences.
Would not hesitate to recommend this Riad to anyone looking for a luxurious retreat amidst the chaos of the medina.
