The Riad Charlott' is an absolute gem and a relaxing, tranquil environment to come back to after time in the busy markets and Jemaa El Fna. When we first arrived and went down the winding passageways, we weren't sure we'd ever find our way back to the hotel but, armed with the invaluable hand-drawn map Ahmed had given us, we found it far easier than expected and could find our way easily after one trip to the main square (around a 15 minute walk away, through the wonderful Place des Epices and market stalls).
Our room, the Mathieu suite, was beautifully decorated and had traditional Moroccan features with a modern twist, including a lovely lounge area. Within the riad, there is also a roof terrace, which was perfect for a drink in the sun, and downstairs there is a comfortbale sofa area for when the weather was a little wetter.
The staff at the Riad were absolutely fantastic. They were so helpful in organising our transfer from the airport, and even sorted out getting our clothes cleaned after we got soaked during a dune buggying trip. Ahmad was particularly great - always around to give us directions and keep us topped up with mint tea! Breakfast was also great - Moroccan pancakes and different breads with an assortment of preserves and fresh orange juice and coffee/tea and all served by two friendly, smiley ladies.
While we were staying, we chose to have the hammam and massage package that the riad offers. This is a little more expensive than going to one outside of the hotel but well worth it for the convenience and wonderful service. The gommage was amazing and took place in a small hot room (hammam) next door to our bedroom. The massage was very relaxing although they should invest in a new table as the current one is a little creaky!
We would thoroughly recommend the Riad Charlott' and hope to go back one day.
