A two minutes walking distance from Djemaa el Fna means an excellent location to start your exploration in the Medina. Although the riad is located in one of the intricate alleys of the Medina, it is not difficult to find at all - just keep turning right once you entered the alley next to the Cafe de France at Djemaa el Fna. Arrived, the first sense come to our mind was the tranquility, which is a huge contrast compared with the carnival in the Fna square.
It is correct that the owners Monique and her husband speaks just French. So if you don't speak French, make sure you look for Aziz, a helpful and knowledgeable staff who speaks English, French, and Arabic. Or you may need the goggle translation.
You may also want to spend a night to have dinner at the riad, which serve delicious traditional Moroccan food. My personal favor is Tajine with chicken and date (a sweet dish). We heard that they make nice pizza as well. We had two dinners there and they were both great. We particularly like the quite and relaxing dinning environment that you get the chance to meet and share experience with other residents.
One thing to be aware of is that the riad also operate a guesthouse nearby, with the same. So you'll have to make sure which one you will stay at.
We stayed for four nights and had very good sleep every night. I think that it is, after all, the most important thing for a hotel.
