The Riad Viva is beautifully decorated inside, the rooms are comfortable, and the staff are friendly. We stayed in the riad for a four day break over New Year. A highlight is the lovely roof terrace, a little suntrap that offset the January cold spells in the shaded streets.
The riad is a great location in the heart of the old town, but set back from the Medina making it a good escape from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas. The main sights are all only 5 to ten minutes away on foot.
The riad will organise a free transfer form the airport, which is a must not least to find it the first time. After initially locating it, it's easy to find down an alleyway near the hospital and Palace Bahia. We were however charged MAD 200 for the airport transfer return - expensive given it is only a ten minute journey and there is a taxi rank nearby. If we'd had more time we would have gone for that.
We also loved the nearby "Les Bains de L'Alhambra" for a traditional hannam. You'd need to book in advance, the receptionist speaks a number of languages fluently so nothing to worry about there.
