Our party of 4 stayed for 5 nights at Riad Hidden in October, 2012; we took two rooms, one up a flight, one on the ground floor. My wife and I were travelling with a friend who was resident in Chefchaouen, Morocco, and her two-year old girl, who was quite a handful. People at the riad often looked after her when her mother was less than attentive to her explorations, and were always most helpful. We were the only occupants of the riad during the time of our stay. We are somewhat late risers, and it was very nice to have breakfast always readied at our convenience. The rooftop covered dining was always a nice, relaxing experience, with more orange juice and coffee served upon request. The home made yoghurt is excellent, although not prepared every day. The owner, Salma, is most congenial and kind. Apparently she had had a cat that disappeared, so our friend found a very cute little kitten and brought it to Salma as a replacement. It was our understanding that Salma was pleased with the thing and had decided to keep it about. The rooms were very nice, not large but not too small, air conditioned, pretty, and nicely furnished. Lighting in the bathroom was a bit dim in our room. Maid service was top quality. Nearby restaurants Salma recommended were Le Salama and Chez Chegrouni. We ate at both twice. The latter is okay, but nothing special. The former, albeit a bit expensive, was certainly worth it and a great deal of fun, so if you can afford it don't miss it. They have a special couscous night, and my wife felt it the best tagine she had in Morocco. Overall, this moderately priced riad proved to be a very nice temporary domicile, albeit it is in fact a bit difficult to find at night. Carefully note how to return to it when you leave it the first time, and pay attention to the stores near the entrance to the alley on which it's located.
