This hotel is perfect if you want somewhere that is under a minutes walk to Jamaa el-Fnaa (the main square) yet offers a complete contrast to the squares busy and noisy atmosphere. As soon as you step in you enter into a peaceful and calm environment. When you first arrive they greet you with the classic Moroccan mint tea, and helpful advice for your stay. The place itself is small and quaint, with various places on each floor where you can sit comfortably and read or rest. The small pool in the centre adds to the tranquility of the riad, and is a lovely romantic place to sit around if eating in the top class restaurant (which may require booking). Some rooms are situated around this same area, as ours was, which was of no concern to us, and may or may not be of some peoples taste concerning noise and privacy when entering and exiting the room. Breakfast is also on this ground floor and can be enjoyed around the pool if wished. A majority of guests and workers at the riad are French speaking (apart from the helpful receptionist who speaks very good English), so a little knowledge of the French language would help but it is not a necessity. You are also welcome to pay in Euros via card which is very useful.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the personal, caring quality that this riad had to offer. It was easy to get to and easy to feel at home there which enhanced the enjoyment of our stay.
