My sister and I stayed at Riad Asrari in January and we would definitely recommend staying here!! We got an upgrade to the African suite which was beautiful. Upon arrival Agil, the receptionist, greeted us and sat us in the serene courtyard. He brought us some Moroccan tea an the most amazing biscuits we've ever had.
The service at the riad was faultless. The rooms were immaculate and clean. Breakfast was great - though there was so much food!! Agil was always more than happy to book us spa days, tables at restaurants and airport transfers.
The location is great, not too long of a walk to the main square and souks but also near to the new city as well. It isn't in a tourist area so it's lovely to see the traditional Moroccan way of life. As a group of girls on holiday, the first day was daunting walking from the riad, but the locals are friendly but the men do have different cultural attitudes than we are used to in the UK.
We would definitely recommend staying here!!
