I hesitate to say anything critical about Riad Azoulay as we received such wonderful, kind, friendly service from the staff. They went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was comfortable and were attentive and super helpful. I wish I could provide separate reviews based on the staff alone. The rooms were nice and clean. The toiletries and towels provided were spa quality. The entire place was very tranquil, with a very chilled out spa like atmosphere. That is the good. The bad is the awkward location, which cannot be helped. The street on which the Riad is located is not accessible by car, but is down a narrow alley deeply imbedded in the winding spice market and is beside a mosque. Should you choose to stay here, you should be aware that you will be woken up at 4:00 am every night with a loud call to prayer. The ugly is the area surrounding the Riad which is quite slummy and dodgy, although you need to adjust your expectations in poorer countries like Morocco. I would not feel comfortable walking back to the Riad alone at night, and, unfortunately, through no fault of the management there, is not the sort of place I would want to return to just based on the surrounding area.
