“Biggest bang for your buck. Ideal for backpackers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Certainly not without hiccups, this riad was comfortable and pleasant. Outstanding service. Clean. Very inexpensive. Not a lap of luxury, but complete with kitchen that's available for guests. Great place to chill out in the evenings and detox from the souk vendors. Shisha in the evenings if you'd like. You can even have dinner there most nights.

Only downside is that the Athaan is not far and woke me up every morning. Same with a local rooster, which continued to crow for hours. Despite the lack of sleep, it really gave it a local and authentic feel.

Hassan and Yahya were great. Big thanks to them.

Room Tip: Perhaps away from the top floor or the mosque.

A very nice place in the middle of the Medina where we stayed with my wife.
A good price/quality with a helpful staff.
They organised our transfer from the airport to the riad, and welcome us in the middle of the night.
We'll come back.

good things; Its a very nice and cozy house, a real Riad. the staff is very friendly and helpful, you can use the kitchen if you want to cook something. The breakfast is very simple nothing fancy and depending how many days you are staying it gets a bit boring. It's close to the main square and you walk through the souq (arabic market) so its nice you can see everything, Always someone to answer the door (I've heard people complaining about other Riads).

Bad things: It is not very easy to find, if you are coming with a lot of luggage or at night I DO recommend to request an airport or train station pick up, it's a bit overpriced, but they know the way so you don't get lost. INTERNET not all the rooms have a good reception, we had to go downstairs to use it. and the last thing is... I've send a lot of emails to the owners and they almost never replied (I had to call a couple of times). they try to send you to another Riad cause I think they own 3 or 4, but if you want to stay in this one you have to talk to them to make sure they won't overbook your room.

But that is it I do recommended, mainly if you are on a budget.

Room Tip: Ask the for the room with good internet reception!

Don't be put off by the random side alley and the entrance- this riad is super friendly and in a good location. The 2 owners couldn't do enough to make sure we had a lovely stay. Bathrooms are really big and clean. Air con and heating provided. A great place to stay.

We arrived at the Riad well past midnight from the train station, and the hostel owner met us on a main square and walked us to the hostel. Courtyard and lobby area are absolutely beautiful. We instantly wished we could stay longer. The bathroom blew us away-- double sink, tub, roomy shower-- we agreed it was nicer than most American single family homes. Bedroom was spacious as well, though plug points are limited. In the morning, hostel owner woke up extra early to arrange a special breakfast before our tour was scheduled to leave and personally spoke to our guide to give him directions to the hostel. Fantastic experience overall
