Stayed here for two nights in March. Located at the edge of the souks, the riad is right in the medina and an easy walk to the major sites. Although as with most riads you can't get a taxi to the door, the riad will arrange to meet you and transport your luggage.
We stayed in the Rose room – due to the traditional design rooms are narrow but well designed and decorated. Bottles of water are supplied along with fresh flowers, robes and slippers. Had a couple of small issues – the lights in the bathroom are very dim, the shower head was a bit blocked up so the water doesn't flow too well, and the hairdryer was rubbish so bring your own if you have long hair!
There is lots of space around the riad, with a lounge, library and big roof terrace. The terrace was the best part of the road – with lots of seating space, a log fire for the evenings and a few sun loungers. Great place to watch the sunset over the medina and on a clear day you could see the snow on the tops of the Atlas Mountains. Perfect place for a glass of wine in the evenings.
Breakfast is included with the room and served on the roof terrace – fruit and yogurt, bread and pastries, pancakes, orange juice and tea/coffee. Watch out for the wasps though, we ended up moving tables three times to avoid them. We also had dinner one night in the dining room, the beef and prune tagine, which was very tasty though a bit heavy.
Overall a good place to stay, though could be excellent if a few little issues were sorted out.
