We enjoyed our stay at Riad Itrane. It was around the corner, then down 3 streets, then down an alley to reach from Jemma el Fn'a. We were able to wheel our bags down to the square for a taxi for the train station. You wouldn't be able to get a taxi that close in the evening as they stop allowing cars into the square after 2 (so I am told). But this did seem more like a small hotel. We only saw the manager a couple of times, but the young man who has a room there (Saiid?) was very sweet. My friend's husband kept trying to call her, and Saiid kept telling us whenever he saw us. He even allowed the husband to call on his personal cellphone and then he came up to our room with his phone. We had the Antares Suite, which had a little sitting area overlooking one of the courtyards. There was no a/c in the sitting room, although there was some in the sleeping area. So we did get pretty warm in the sitting area. There were some people eating in the courtyard on several nights, although we didn't try it. They were served wine with their meal, for which they were charged 150 MAD, even though we had purchased the same wine at the market for about 40 MAD, but that is usual for restaurants. The breakfast was juice, bread, cheese in foil, and some kind of pancake thing. And coffee. They were very nice to let us leave our luggage in our room when we left for an overnight visit to Essaouira, since they didn't have a reservation for that room. They didn't charge us for the night we weren't there.
