This riad is a true oasis of calm! It's tucked away under an arch in the centre of complete chaos ! Fatima the receptionist is the loveliest person ever and cannot do any more for you ! The food was delicious too but a little pricey compared to what u get out but comes in nice big portion sizes ! The room itself was very dark as there was no outside window so therefore no natural light. The bathroom was very basic and the light switch was broken and had to be punched to turn it on and the shower was very bare and took a while to regulate temperature. The bed was huge but like a slab of concrete ! We even had a few bugs one night. The pool was nice enough to put your feet in and sit on edge but wouldn't get in 1 because its in the middle of the courtyard so everyone is walking past you and some perv and 2 it wasn't very clean. The porter Mohammed was a legend he couldn't do enough for us and even walked us to the local hammam which Fatima recommended to us which was absolutely fantastic ! Defo go there ! On the last day we noticed some money had gone missing from both our suitcases which was disappointing but Fatima was so sorry and upset she gave us a free lunch and they had stolen 500 dirums from us so we had no money for lunch or a tip which we would have happily given. All in all it's a 15 walk to the square and 10 mins to the souks if you don't get lost and follow Fatima's map! It's so peaceful and is beautiful. It needs some tlc and some security as there are no safes in the room unless you ask which we were only told once we were robbed and if you want your room cleaned you leave your key at the reception and if nobody is around it just sits there which anyone coil take ! All in all it's cheap and cheerful and good if your planning on being out all day or just sitting around in the sun on the roof terrace or by the pool
