“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2008

We stayed at the Riad Irene to celebrate a friends birthday, the accommodation and hospitality were excellent, we were made very welcome and well looked after. The girls who ran the Riad cooked and served a traditional Moroccan meal for us, the table was beautifully set and decorated with rose petals. Afterwards we retired to the comfortable roof terrace for drinks. On our departure Irene the owner was horrified to learn that the airport transport we had organised on line was to cost us 400 dirhams, she promptly cancelled this and ordered us a Grande Taxi costing 150 dirhams. The only downside was that it took us two days to negiotate our way in and out of the medina and had difficulty finding our way back. In hindsight had we telephoned the Riad, I'm sure Abdul would have met us at the Medina wall gate as he did when we arrived.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2007

This riad is deep within the medina, you have to book a transfer from the airport to the riad as it is down little alleys. if you like local this is it. The riad itself has been renovated and the bedrooms are great. The Staff only speak french or Arabic so brush up on your french as it will help. Although we speak very little french we got by with the help of the french owners who arrived for a visit, they spoke english. We had breakfast which was fine, we did not have any other meals in the riad although you could order meals. They give you a map to navigate out to the city wall or down into the souks and main square. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this riad. If we return we will certainly stay there again.
