The riad is in the heart of the medina and is tricky to find - it's best to call just prior to your arrival at one of the medina entrance gates so that they can have a porter there to meet you and take care of your baggage for 30 or 40 Dirhams.
Breakfast is quite good and plentiful, but without eggs or yoghurt; unripened goat cheese was a treat.
WiFi is good but limited to the seating area near the entrance.
Large common areas and nicely decorated in traditional style.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Our room was quite nice but the bedroom was above the entrance/washroom level. You may want to ask for a room with everything on the same level.

We enjoyed our stay at Dar Bensouda! Hamid could not have been more helpful and attentive to our every need! He arranged transportation to and from the train station and even had someone buy our first class tickets for us to Rabat! Our room was beautiful (as was the rest of the Riad) and we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there during our stay....yum!

Absolutely loved our stay at Dar Bensouda. Like most ryads in the Medina, this hotel looks plain from the outside but is large and intricately-detailed on the inside. The rooms are spacious, clean and in true Moroccan style. Even better, the staff could not be nicer. After arriving worn out from a 3-day desert tour, we were immediately served tea and dinner. The next day, we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and the hotel staff offered to travel to the train station to buy our train tickets for us. I would absolutely recommend staying here!

Please note, since the Ryad is inside the Medina, you cannot reach by car or taxi. You will need to have the receptionist come pick you up outside the Medina walls and lead you to the hotel. As long as you call ahead, this is easy to arrange.

I recently stayed at Dar Bensouda when travelling solo through Morocco and thought it was wonderful. Very tastefully and traditionally renovated, it provided a secure and serene ambience to retreat to in-between explorations of the surrounding vivid and animated atmosphere of the old town and medina. Said and the staff were unfailingly polite and helpful, and arranged reliable and knowledgeable guides at reasonable prices when needed. My room was very comfortable and quiet, adjacent to a stunning courtyard, and not far from the fantastic rooftop relaxation area with 360 degree panoramic views of the city. The spacious ground floor courtyard was also a stunner in keeping with tradition and comfort, with couches, a welcome cooling pool and a location for generous breakfasts using local ingredients. Tasty Moroccan dishes custom-made to order for dinner could be provided if desired. All highly recommended, including the body massage and hammam services.

Room Tip: Hair dryer not provided. You need to be able to climb stairs.
