We spent 3 nights in a standard double room and were really happy with our selection. We had great communication with the owners from the booking stage and they were happy to help us arrange an airport transfer with a driver for our arrival at midnight. The owner met us at the medina gate and helped carry our luggage to the Riad at 1am!! We didn't have any cash on arrival and it was no dramas to pay later. The staff were really friendly and spoke perfect english, which made conversation very easy.
They must own other Riads so are very experienced with tourists and had a well set up travel agency where you could book ongoing trips or just ask for advice. They would even help you with bartering if you took a photo of what you wanted and bring it back they would tell you how much it is worth. Very helpful.
The breakfast was typical moroccon, pastries, breads and tea, so filling enough and a good way to start the day.
The rooms were great, being a long size meant there was enough room to place your luggage, they were very clean and well decorated. HUGE bath towels was a bonus and great air conditioning The only negative was that they didn't leave you with the air conditioner control?!.
The location is perfect in a quiet street in the Medina but only one street away from the main street heading into the square. So close to the action but peaceful and safe.
