My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in July/August. We took the opportunity of being met at the airport by a private taxi company which is arranged through the hotel. Two smartly dressed chaps met us and we were soon on our way in a nice air conditioned executive vehicle. They dropped us at a small square where an employee of the Riad met us. He then walked us along alleys into a souk. The only type of transport to reach Raid Monceau after being dropped off would be a moped or by foot so paying for this service through the hotel is well worth it. I am not too sure how we would have found the place as it is in the alleys of the Souk. (I think it was €20 for a return trip) Well he took us down said small alley and there was a large door to the hotel. On entering it was another world to the hubbub we had just left. The building had been carefully and lovingly converted into a luxury boutique hotel. Our room was delightful and opened onto the small pool. (more a plunge pool). This is where you ate in the evening. We did on two nights and although more expensive than outside the food was definitely 5 star and well worth every penny. Breakfast was served in a room near the pool and was very good with a choice of eggs if you so wished. Beware of the local sparrows swooping in and stealing the cornflakes! As mentioned before in other reviews, the Riad is a short walk to the square so you can't really get lost. After the heat of the day and batting away the hawkers it's a lovely oasis to escape the organised chaos of outside. Would return tomorrow!
