This is my first ever trip advisor review and i just wanted to let everyone know that if you are after a luxury Riad right in the centre of the Medina then look no further than Dar Housina. My wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here for three nights in September 2011 and cannot praise it enough.
The Riad itself is lovely, beautifully designed from top to bottom and has everything you need - Rooftop terrace, plunge pool, swimming pool, free internet, lovely rooms, amazing free breakfast (cooked each morning by a wonderful chef) and the evening meal we had on our first night was the best we had during our stay. Looking back we wish we had eaten at the Riad every night instead of eating out elsewhere in the city, it was that nice!
All the staff are superb and really couldnt do enough for us and made us feel really special.
Although it is not the easiest place to find in the dark, the location is perfect in terms of being only a 5 min walk from the souks and only a ten min walk to the square.
I would defo go back to this Riad and would strongly suggest to others to try it rather than stay at the soul-less, so called 5* hotels outside the city walls.
