We found Riad Habiba through Splendida.com - and had few expectations. We arrived to the taxi parking, were led down a few alleyways in the South medina, left the chaos behind and stepped into a delightful, stylishly decorated oasis of calmness and tranquility. Our room was (appropriately named) the Zen room and because the Riad has only 4 rooms, it can never really get noisy*.
The best asset of this Riad however, is its staff. Naima, the manager is a passionate and fascinating woman with loads of insight into the local area and culture. She speaks fluent french and has very good English. If you speak French, you will get the most value from her insights. She got excellent deals for us on transport to Imlil and gave me very good advice on a purchase in the Souq.
Samir, the night manager, is, by contrast, quiet, gentle, smiling but, like Naima, always ready to help.
Mention should also go to Fatim-Za and her colleague - who clean up but also gave me excellent advice on the Arabic alphabet, which I was learning.
Thumbs up all round for Riad Habiba!
(*One small point re noise - despite only a few rooms, the glass, marble and wooden surfaces and the interior courtyard means that noise still carries - so light sleepers, don't abandon earplugs just yet).
