With its prime location (five minutes to the local square), beautiful decor and friendly staff, Riad le Clos dest Arts would enhance any city visit. It's somewhat removed from the more commercial hotels that surround the medina, but all the better for it. In fact, we felt more like guests in someone's home than customers in a vast chain hotel. The decor is understated but tasteful, with small - yet thoughtful - touches throughout the whole riad. We ate dinner the first night and then had breakfast each morning and all the meals were excellent, always using simple but fresh ingredients. When we wanted peace and quiet we were left to our own devices, but if we needed help, they were ready with a range of options and sage advice.
I'd mentioned it was my wife's birthday in passing during the booking process, and on the day, she was presented with flowers, a cake and beautiful jasmine slippers after breakfast, completely unbidden by me. We received the same treatment later that day at the (excellent) Pepe Nero restaurant, after Giorgina had told them why we were coming - more cake, prosecco etc.
I doubt we could have made a better choice and it really did enhance what was a truly memorable first visit to Africa for my wife.
