An enchanting series of tiny courtyards linked by stairs, serene and cool. A courtyard garden with a family of tortoises. Afternoon tea and pastries. A beautiful rooftop terrace with excellent food, a good wine/beer selection, and exceptional service. While I didn't try out the spa, it looked lovely and relaxing.
But Riad el Fenn is not just suitable for quiet leisure. It's conveniently located right at the entrance to the Medina-so you can get there by taxi and proceed on foot. The wi-fi coverage is excellent throughout. And the coffee/tea service every morning at 7:30 is a great start to a full day of exploring the city, if you're so inclined.
