We've stayed 2 nights in Riad Monika, at the end of a 12 day-trip in Morocco.
The Riad is a dream. We've chosen the Riad because it seemed to be good to relax. And we were right. It's an excellent choice if you sometimes like to relax after a day in this busy city. It's an oasis, there you find your peace and quiet.
The Riad looks like a oriental dream, there are places to relax and lounge everywhere. If you have a room on the ground floor, you have the pool directly in front of your door. It's so amazing that we hardly wanted to leave the Riad to visit the city (again). The terrasse is also great. With lots of plants and lounges.
The big breakfast is served on the terrasse every morning between 8 and 11.
Service is great. The staff is very very nice.
Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. There's also a luxury bathroom with a rain-Shower. They offer not only shower gel and shampoo as most hotels do, there's also Rhassoul in the bathroom.
Location: The Riad is located near the Mosque Ben Youssef / Medersa Ben Youssef. From there it's easy to find. When you arrive, the Riad offers you a airport transfer for 15 Euros. Book it, because a Taxi isn't really cheaper... And as the taxi can't drive you directly to the Riad, there will be boys as "guides", which show you the way to the Riad but then want (too much) money for this service. With the transfer, it's more stressless (I can tell you, because we didn't book it....) It's worth it!
To the Place Jamaa el Fna it's about a 10 / 15 minutes-walk through the souks or next to it.
