Solo traveller, stayed one night. The Riad is located down a long dark tunnel, and I didn't feel safe to walk back after dark, so sat in my tiny, dank, mouldy smelling room that night eating a baguette. (Apparently there were meals available but only if you had ordered them the day before!) The shower sprayed directly out of the bath on to the floor flooding the room (probably why the room smelt so damp). In the alley below a group of locals had a drumming session from 10pm till about 1am. In the morning I started to have breakfast on the terrace but had to ask to eat downstairs as about 10-15 bees kept landing in my food and 'buzzing me'. Check out time is advertised on booking.com as between 12 and 2pm so at 11.45am I returned to my room to pack my bag and check out. I found 3 staff members had entered my locked room and removed all of my belongings: they'd packed my toiletries, underwear, clothing, laptop and other personal items into my suitcase. They had also unlocked a 'security cupboard' in my room and removed my passport and money. When I asked the whereabouts of my belongings, they brought my suitcase to me from somewhere downstairs. Nothing had been taken but no apology or explanation was offered.
