I'm surprised at the negative elements in a couple of reviews posted just before mine. This stay was at the end of a few weeks travelling in Morocco and it was a lovely finish to the trip: definitely the best place I stayed. Noisy? No: the streets in the area are certainly that, but this riad is tucked down a small street and is an oasis of tranquility, with a sense of calm as soon as one walks in the door. Look at photos on their website and you'll get an idea of what it's like, which is mainly plain walls, quite smart in a European way rather than the heavy decoration of many Moroccan places. Mint tea and home-made cakes on arrival (and some in the room). The room was not very big , but comfortable; the bed was big , and extremely comfortable. There was an electric radiator in the room and a heater in the shower room, but we needed neither. Breakfast was excellent as was the one dinner we had there (you need to order this in the morning): three different cold starters inc a yummy pepper-based one; a tagine of lamb and quince (wow!); strawberry fool to finish; v palatable wine was extra to the 180 dh for the meal. A log fire was lit for us when we ate; not a very good fire (more wood, Moha!) but it wasn't needed for warmth. All in all, an excellent stay; we would go back there and certainly recommend to friends and family.
The map supplied for finding the riad was not wonderful (tho it's marked on some of the city maps you can buy).. To get there from the Djemaa el Fna head for Derb Debachi, the street leading off from the NE corner of the square, between the Cafe de France and Cafe Montreal (on your right) and the mosqe on the corner. Keep straight on at the crossroads you soon reach (not marked on the map supplied) past a little square with collonades on the left to a junctio with (currently) a Coke machine on the right and Maroc Telecom sign on left: Rue Ben Salah. Turn left down the third street opposite the wall with numbered spaces painted on it. Take the second entrance on your left through a wrought iron gate. Riad is immediately on your right. A taxi from Airport to Djemaa el Fna is 50dh. The shuttle bus is 20dh. There are currently about 11 dh to the Euro.
