The riad is lovely, quiet. Staff very friendly, we were carefully attended to.
The taxi drops you near the hospital. (There's no sign of the riad at this point.) Before we were out of the taxi, loitering young men had our bags in hand to take us to the riad. They took us to a nearby riad with a similar name, then back to the correct one. They wanted Euros right away (we had no small bills to pay with - awkward). We paid him in dirham the next day. The same young man and his friends were at the exit to the laneway the entire trip. Best to make friends quickly.
Once we knew where we were, the narrow lane seemed friendlier and more accessible, but the first trip up the lane is very daunting. The massive door opens, and a beautiful riad awaits.
