My husband and I enjoyed everything there: the extremely refined decoration taste, the delicious breakfasts, the kindness of the staff, the sunny colourful terrace, the comfort of our room. Impossible to find a fault!

I simply can't forget the place, its atmosphere is stuck in my head. Everything is done so beautifully! And besides that the Riad gives you so much privacy along with a fantastic service and good talks with the staff, especially the manager. A place that you can always go back to in your mind, even months after having stayed there!

This has to be one of the ultimate places to stay in the medina and I have stayed in my fair share. It's a beautiful building, which has been immaculately and sympathetically restored. It's authentic and unbelievably comfortable with wonderful beds and excellent bathrooms- buckets of hot water. The staff are lovely people and exceptionally good at their jobs. Outstanding....
