We spent six wonderful days exploring the old walled city with Le Riad as the ideal base.
The hotel itself has been attractively desisned and furnished; the tea lounge and roof terrace are both great places to enjoy breakfast and the view from our balcony was an endless source of interest. The staff could not be more helfpful and welcoming. For anyone who takes pleasure in great architecture and decorative art, the imemdate neighbourhood is a tresaure chest, easily explored on foot. (It's also where Naguib Mahfouz set his masterpiece, Palace Walk),
We found Le Riad far more enjoyable than staying anywhere downtown.
The fish restaurant across the street serves cheap, well cooked meals of fresh fish.
