Hidden away from the bustle and noise of the medina and souk, Riad Anyssates is like one's own personal oasis.
The riad is some twenty minutes walk from Jemma El Fna but once one has found one's bearing in the warren of alleyways it is always a relief to return to the calm of the riad.
Nicholas and the staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming
The rooms are simply but well furnished in Moroccan style and the air conditioning, shower, loo etc all work well.
Breakfast of fruit juice, local bread, fruit, preserves and coffee is served in the central atrium around the pool which offers a cooling and refreshing dip from the heat of the day.
The bar is well stocked with local, very drinkable wines as well as beer and spirits.
We ate dinner three times in the riad and the food is delicious.
There are good local restaurants within a ten minute walk as well as the numerous cafes, restaurants and food stalls of the central square.
Bargaining in the shops is de rigeur and you will be accosted by people offering to take you to the square, Berber markets, shops etc.
Either politely and firmly decline their offer or expect to be asked for money for their services. 20 dirhams is the standard tip though they will then look disappointed or even angry to try to get you to pay more
Do visit the Maison De Photographie for an excellent collection of photographs of old Morocco.
