Many other guests have written glowing reviews of this Riad, and I will find it hard to add more to these past reviews. I can say this: I LOVED staying here. It was so quiet, and peaceful, a bit away from the centre of the medina, and a lovely labyrinth of a walk to get back 'home'.
The Riad is 3 floors and only 5 rooms. And the staff, Erwan, Abdou and Fatima, do every thing possible to make your stay pleasant and worry free. They were constantly offering tea and snack, or to help with the stay. I even had some dirty underwear in the closet next to my suitcase. The next day Fatima had removed all of it and it was washed and folding on my bed. (She didn't even ask ! and it was not necessary, but certainly welcome).
Fatima's cooking is extraordinary. Meals cost €18 each (lunch or dinner). The Tajine was the best, I would go for that!
The only thing I would say for the potential guest, is that you have to be adventurous to stay here as the Riad is not located 5m to the Place Jema El Fna. It is a wonderous 15 minute walk to the Place every day through poor areas, open air market, and then the souk to get to the place. The first time I did it, Abdou escorted me there to show me the way. After that is was simple as pie, and I could have done it blindfolded. I loved this walk. Some will not, and if you have a poor sense of direction, then you might get lost. I never felt in danger getting back, so don't worry about that.
All the rooms and the entire Riad are decorated in a style that I love. Old semi-antiques or objets d'art, laid out all around your room and the Riad. It was cool.
To sum it up, I would come back in a minute and recommend it to friends, but if you want to be 2 minutes from the Place Jema El Fna, and you have a poor sense of direction, then this is not for you.
