We stayed out of season in January but it was nevertheless a lovely place to stay at this time. The roof terrace is warm and sheltered and is a great place to relax before heading out to the Souk or places of interest.The Riad is well located in the NW sector of the Medina and a walk around the Souk to the main square is about 20 mins or once you've mastered the navigation through the Souk, a direct (if you don't get lost) route to the square is really interesting.
The breakfasts are superb and the service by the staff is first class And they are thoroughly helpful whatever your requests.
The only slight downsides are that noises get transmitted through the Riad - but that is probably true of all of them - and the prices of ancillary items (bottles of wine, tours etc) are a little high.
But notwithstanding these points - highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Palacio de las Especias recovers the splendour of a building erected in the 19th century. The building was originally owned by the Echerid family, who were spice merchants but, unfortunately, the years and neglect had taken their toll. Today, respecting the original building, but adapting it to provide the comfort that an establishment of this nature deserves, it opens its rooms from within the heart of the Medina, in order to provide its visitors with the enjoyment and relaxation they are looking for. The decor of its rooms, the coolness of its patios, the murmuring of its fountains and the peaceful evenings on the terrace mean that resting inside its rooms becomes the happy ending to a perfect day. ... more less
