We have just returned from a seven day stay at this wonderful Riad. We found the service received from Mustapha and his sister Latifah marvelous and discreet without being over attentive. Mustapha has a basic grasp of English and makes a concerted effort to make himself understood in this language. His communication with us was always successful. However, a basic grasp of French and / or Arabic by the visitor would help. Mustafa is a font of local knowledge and Latifah an excellent cook. The meal prepared for us was very good and the romantic setting on the roof patio quite special.
The Riad itself is a little pool of tranquility away from the manic pace of Jemaa El Fna and the Souks. The kitchen was spotless, the rooms well serviced and clean and everything functioning as per the marketing from the Riad internet site.
As others have stated, one should definitely arrange transport from the airport / station with Mustafa as this Riad - like all the Riad’s in the Medina, I suspect – will be difficult to find on one’s own.
