Riad arranged pick up from airport, the driver was ready and waiting even though we were delayed through passport control. He helped with cases and made sure we were met at the reception before leaving.
The Riad is two houses, linked together with central courtyards, along a narrow alley with pedestrians, mopeds and donkey carts but well lit at night. The rooms are basic but comfortable, cleaned every day with fresh towels etc. .
Staff were excellent, always willing to help in any way they could, with advice on where to visit and directions, would give a miss to the restaurant they advised the first evening, food good but expensive!
The position is excellent with short walks to all the main attractions, the only time we used a taxi was to get back to the airport. The two main palaces are less than 10 mins away and the main square a bit longer (due to all the shops on theway).
The roof terrace was lovely for breakfast in the morning with birds singing and a view of the storks on the palace roof. We ate a meal at the Riad one lunchtime, food was excellent and they also serve wine.
The best part was walking through the door from a busy alleyway into the quietness of the Riad, this amazed me everytime, that and the thought that behind all of the simple doors in the street there were places like this.I
I can't say the mopeds were a big problem, although we did see two people on a moped transporting a section of fence panelling 2meters by 1.8meters by holding it vertically between them!!!
