After reading other reviews I expected more really.
On the bright side, the riad is indeed an oasis of peace and the people who works there are very nice.
The cons are that nobody speaks english (which is fine for the basics but does not make things easy) and that even though the riad is about 20 mins walking from Djemaa El Fna square, it is hard not get lost and the surroundings are not nice at all.
We stayed in room Cumin. Generally speaking the room is nice but it has no windows and since the door is right next to the common room, smells from the kitchen (every morning) and from people smoking goes into the room.
