The Riad Argan deserves the superlatives heaped upon it by others: great location, safe, clean, and a warm, friendly and helpful staff. My wife and I loved everything about it. You will not likely regret Francoise's advice on things to see and do –all were worthwhile and all within a reasonable walk even for this elderly guy. Refreshments on the rooftop were welcome and oh yes, and do consider dinner at the Argan.
What made our stay at the Argan all the more worthwhile was the not entirely anticipated adventure of staying in the medina. One surprise, for example, was that what appears on a map as a road leading from the Argan to Jemaa El-Fna is in reality a cobblestone walkway, varying from perhaps 8 to 12 feet wide. Pedestrian traffic mixes with bicycles and motorbikes --which sometimes move with lightning speed. With all sorts of things for sale spilling out of the innumerable shops along the way, the walkway may narrow to no more than 5-6 feet. Pedestrians sort of watch out for the wheeled vehicles and drivers sort of watch out for pedestrians; same thing for the souks and the Fna. If there are rules for pedestrian and all other traffic, they seem to be at best informal. It’s crazy, but somehow it works. Go, enjoy the Argan where Francois will get you oriented to the medina, and you’ll have an experience you won’t forget.
