I booked to Riad Blanco for a one night stay and it's not hard to find from the Palace. The riad itself is quiet, calm, very clean with attentive staff, chill foyer area and a wonderful open air terrace with a resident turtle.
The room itself was the Baklis room, it was cosy but small with the bathroom sink actually in the room. The air conditioning was a dream and the bed was comfortable. The shower needed to the refixed to the wall but it worked and was ok. The room is tight for two people with bags and would suit a couple better than friends travelling together as there is little privacy
The breakfast was lovely, an assortment of breads with condiments and we were informed of the requirement to order our dinner if we intended to dine at the riad for dinner.
The only gripe I had was that I was travelling with a friend of a friend and had requested two beds in the room which was confirmed to me in a email as ok with an additional payment. On arrival, the lovely lady at the reception was unaware of this and said she wasn't the one that sent me the email
Overall, recommended for location,cleanliness and value. One tip, if you wish to have a drink, there is a lovely restaurant / riad round the corner
