A riad is a mini-palace buried in the depths of medieval alleys that looks like nothing from the outside but inside reveals, usually, what was once a grand private home.
This riad is decorated with art but not in the traditional mosiac style.
Its very clean and comfortable and the breakfast is good. We did not take other meals there but many people did.
Ryad Amiran is on the north west of the medina near Bab Yacout - about five minutes safe and well signposted walk from where most taxis drop you. With a little ingenuity its possible to walk right through the medina to the Djem El Fna, otherwise follow the walls.
The owner speaks English and will arrange excursions, and the riad is licensed to sell alcohol, something of a rarity in Morocco.
