We stayed at Riad L'Orangeraie two years ago and returned because it was so good. This time it was even better! Ismail and his staff were attentive to our needs and unfailingly generous in response to our requests. Breakfasts were sumptuous and delicious served on their roof terrace in idyllic surroundings. Dinner which we arranged on our last night was a spectacular traditional meal. Delicious. An aperitif was offered one evening in their atmospheric and cosy lounge. And, on Christmas Eve they organised an open bar and Moroccan sweets on the terrace and traditional musicians entertained (all at no extra charge) we had a wonderful time.
The rooms are beautifully fitted with lighting and fabrics that iterate a Moroccan flavour, and the shower is terrific. The Riad is positioned close to the souks, close to Jemaa El Fna, and close to one of the gates of the Medina so that it is easy to get about. There are lots do taxis (be prepared to bargain) at the gate and an ATM is there. Even with this central position the Riad was quiet and relaxing at all times. I cannot recommend this Riad highly enough.
