Riad Dalia is an authentic traditional Moroccan small palace with a peaceful, colorful central garden courtyard. Coming in from the nearby medina and the hawking in the souk is like stepping immediately out of chaos into order and quiet. It is all the work of the owner, Mohammed, the kind and helpful proprietor who has spent the past 15 or so years restoring this old Moroccan mansion back to its former glory. The atrium has the traditional trees and a central fountain, beautiful tiles, Arabic calligraphy and architecture. The rooms are not huge but they are of a reasonable size, tastefully decorated with bright fabric and tiles, mosaic lighting fixtures and small decorative pieces that one would never find in even the finest hotels. Trust is key. Cleanliness is obvious; substantial breakfasts get one off to a good start. The location is perfect for visiting the fabled central square -- a "must see" but only once! Don't get lost in the souk or you'll be paying a bunch of kids who are only too willing to show you the way out. Look like you know what you're doing and try not to pay too much attention to the constant hawkers and sellers in the souk and on the streets. It's a cultural phenomenon. In all, Riad Dalia is a little gem and the owner is a jeweler. Worth the money and the effort to find it among the alleys.
