Cathy (the owner) and her staff were incredibly helpful and wonderful. We didn't even need a guidebook because they had amazing advice for us daily! Cathy was also able to offer us two day excursions out of the city, which were just a portion of the extras they can provide. My sister-in-law and I both had the traditional hamman done at the riad, and a massage - both arranged by the staff at the riad. The breakfasts were EXQUISITE and the dinners we had at the riad made by Mouna were amazing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Riad to my family and friends. We even took our three young boys (all under 4) and were nervous about how they would be received. The staff spoiled them and treated them so well. They loved the food and everyone was incredibly helpful. One word of warning - like most riads, noises do echo in the building, and if you have loud boisterous children that don't have indoor voices, it could be stressful for you as the parents. (speaking from experience) :) Overall it was an AMAZING week, and so much more than I expected - all because of our excellent experience in this quiet, beautiful space in the middle of the bustling souks.
