We had booked this hotel based on the reviews here.
We were let down from the start as there was no driver to meet us at the airport as we had arranged and booked with the Riad.
We tried to telephone them using our mobiles but there was no answer, we then had to find a taxi to take us to Riad Keheirredine, we had no dirhams and the taxi said it was no problem to take us there for 30 euros.
We had no clue and paid him cash, only to find out we were overcharged.
The taxi driver obviously had no clue where to go, and after driving and asking people he dropped us which seemed in the middleof nowhere and pointed down a dark alley.
We took out our suitcases and were obvioulsy at a loss what to do.
We wondered around when some children approached us and offered to show us the way, bearing in mind we had a lot of luggage we had no choice, after being led down dark alleys, we eventually go to the riad.
The kids demanded money, again we had no dirhams and the man at the hotel suggested we gave them a euro hich we did, and then we were subject to a hail of abuse from the kids wanting more.
The hotel made no attempt to appologise for the non showing of the taxi and said we must have arrived late.
We were shown to our room, Sandal room Our first impressions were it was fine. A little dark to read, but overall fine.
We were glad we were given the mobile phone as an option the area is not nice, and it is difficult to navigate the souks and alleys.
Breakfast was good and filling but a little boring after the 3rd day.
Dinner we did not have there as it seemed very expensive compared to what we found ourselves in restaurants and the famous El Fnaa square.
we did not enjoy our stay there and I personally am surprised about all the rave reviews it gets.
