we did not have the fortune to stay at this beautiful Riad, but we were helped immensely by two of their staff, Abdou and a younger man. We wish we had booked this hostel instead (though it seems to be beyond our budget) as we stumbled across this place in an attempt to find our own hostel (Riad Arocha - a much more poorly located, more poorly renovated, more rudely staffed place in the middle of a very dodgy neighborhood far in the north of medina). They sat us down, offered us tea, went out of their way to search on the internet for another number for our hostel and called them several times for us. they discussed, bargained and argued on our behalf (in arabic) with the hostel owners to send us a taxi and were adamant that a good hostel in such a location would not have charged the prices ours wanted to get us to their place safely. In fact from the reviews above, it seems they practice what they preach and are willing to meet guests and walk them back to Zenithya at no extra cost. Lovely. I really wish our hostel offered that. In fact, the younger guy offered to walk us safely there (a loooong journey for them) and generally just chatted with us (in french and quite good english!). They offered us that famous Moroccan hospitality that you read about everywhere, but rarely find without a request for money. My husband was nervous they would ask for money (given our experience in Morocco thus far, it was a natural fear), but in fact there was never even a hint that they wanted anything back from us. Never. And that made me feel very very happy. I want to thank them very much for helping us. I also want to apologise to them for interrupting their prayers. Beautiful people. Such kindness! By that point, we were getting quite nervous wandering around the streets of the medina at night and when they opened the door to us and let us in, I felt like we had found asylum in a very beautiful warm space. We were well impressed by the courtyard as well. The riad is also beautifully renovated. Thank you Abdou and friend!!! - from mexico&nigeria
