Situated next to the busy and vibrant spice market and just 10 minutes walk from the central square, this oasis of calm is one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed. The staff are friendly and helpful with a very laid back manner that makes you feel as though you are staying in a friends house rather than a hotel. The rooms are spacious, and the continental style breakfasts are excellent, as are the authentic Moroccan dinners. There is a lovely big roof terrace with loungers and plenty of shade. Various day trips are available and can be booked through the Riad - the trip to Ouarzazate is particularly good. All in all a calm, relaxed, quiet refuge in a hectic city.
