We stayed for 8 nights in early December and wish we could have stayed more. From the start, Laurent and Muriel make the process as painless as possible: good email communication in advance, free transfers from and to the airport, a personalised sit-down session to discuss what you might want to see and how you would go about itand someone always on hand to help you out.
The staff in the Riad are fantastic, you can get tea, coffee and snacks throughout and dinner in the evening is excellent quality and value for money (although you need to arrange dinner in the morning to give them enough time to get the ingredients)
The Riad is located by the Medina wall about a 15 minute walk to the main square (Djemaa el Fna) although this is probably a plus, as it's a quiet, safe neighbourhood, rather than a busy street.
We stayed in one of the smaller rooms (Aisha) though we did get an upgrade for 2 nights to a suite when it became available. The rooms are all very tastefully decorated. There is also a roof terrace and plenty of communal spaces for chilling out or having a nice mint tea.
Though they don't have a hammam at the Riad, they do have an arrangement with another Riad that does and this is highly recommended.
Very highly recommended
