“Delightful Riad in the heart of the old Medina, with the warmest welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2010

After a lot of searching around we settled on the Dar El Arbaa and booked for 4 nights, in February.
I was delighted with my choice - the riad is small, beautiful, very nicely appointed with simple, tasteful moroccan furnishings. Mr Ali could not have been more helpful with everything we needed including arranging car hire. We took the cheapest room with a seperate bathroom (next to the room) and it was ideal. Its a 10 minute walk to the Jma el fna through a more 'real' part of the medina and much less touristy, which we loved. It seemed to be the part of the medina where all the locals live and shop. The area was very quiet at night.
There is a small roof terrace - perhaps not the best view, but still lovely.
Breakfast was simple with home made breads, jams, fruit, juices and coffee. delicious every time.

I wouldnt hesitate to stay there again and already look forward to the next time.

Mr Ali speaks no english whatsoever, so some command of french is quite necessary if you stay here (though not essential - you can get by with hand gesturing) - i was glad to be able to speak french with Mr Ali though and he was most patient with me!!
