This is a lovely Riad, tucked away in Bab Aylen, just inside the walls of the Old City. I stayed here with two other friends for five nights; we were comfortable and looked after well by the staff. The room was pleasant, quiet and clean. We particularly enjoyed the breakfasts served each morning, something slightly different each day but always something freshly made, juice, coffee etc., and the two evening meals we had there... the best meals we had all holiday; we'd especially recommend the lamb, prune and almond tagine!The weather in February was good so we spent some time upstairs on the roof terrace, relaxing on the sun loungers and basking in the warm sunshine - bliss. Once outside the door of the Riad, you're straight into a poorer district of the Old town, lots of noise, people, smells, donkeys and street sellers... Takes a bit of getting used to but with a map, and through a bit of trail and error, you'll be able to find your way to the main square in about 15 minutes. We enjoyed some meals out there and loved the souks. We also visited the Café Livre and the Marjorelle gardens in the new town, which we'd recommend as well. It was a great trip in a vibrant, interesting place!
