Riad Majala is tucked inside the Medina, yet is very quiet. While it is a bit of a trek from the closest road open for auto traffic, we were able to find our way by following left turn, right turn, left, right...etc. The rooms were comfortable, and the baths were very nice. While not super upscale, it served our purposes nicely. We slept peacefully there and enjoyed the attentive care provided by both the day and evening house keepers. One night we requested a dinner made by the house keeper, which was fresh, lovely and delicious. It was perfect after a hot, tiring day to dine peacefully in the courtyard. And the cost was very reasonable, especially compared to some of the mediocre tourist trap restaurants nearby. We look forward to returning to this small, peaceful riad.
