“Feeling like at home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011

Our stay at this little riad was so relaxing. It is situated in a typical moroccan
residential area, but nobody took notice from us. We were like at home there. Jean-Pierre,
the owner of the riad is a very nice and humble and uncomplicated man, very friendly and helpful.It was a feeling like being a guest of a good old friend. When we left our room for going to the city we left the doors widely open and did not care about our laptpos or cellphones or passports-no problem.the rooms and bathrooms were clean, also the towels were fresh and white, wich is not always natural in every guest house. Breakfast was tasty with fresh squeezed orange juice. Wi fi is available for free. The room maid is a diligent and friendly woman and and the house assistant is a very tactful person. I can recommend this riad without any doubt.

The Riad was serene and quiet, rooms were spotless, comfortable beds, Roof garden was a haven of beauty and tranquility and then there was the breakfasts...freshly squeezed orange juice and a selection of morrocan breads and spreads. The owner of the Riad was french and he spoke really good English. He and his colleague made us totally welcoming without being invasive. They gave us tips on how to get to the square, lessons in haggling and even bought us mint for our teapot.! I would definately go back a real hidden gem. 15 minutes away from the square and getting lost was part of the adventure. When you get too tired a cab is always on hand. Perfect!
