We were met at jenaa el fna square by a representative of the hotel (taxis are not allowed into the square) he helped with our luggage and pointed out various land marks to help us find the riad on our own.

Beautiful place, scrumptious food, good location, easy to get back to without a guide. Fabulous hosts and staff. I thought our riad in Fez was fabulous but this place was better still. Thank you! BOOK IT!

Spent a night here in this beautiful Riad. All the rooms are beautiful with amazing furniture. We had our own little outdoor area which unfortunately didn't get the sun a lot but I expect that is a relief in the hotter months!

Beautiful riad, not too big, very helpful staff (and Moroccan owned - many riads aren't), very central location, absolutely delicious food served with elegance and care, roof terrace for sitting in the sun. finitely highly recommended. Room lighting dim so take a torch if you want to read in bed!
