A huge disappointment which got our holiday off to an awful start. We were put in a different building as the riad was undergoing repairs, but we were not told of this until our arrival despite having been in touch by email so that warning us in advance would have been easy. The room featured a 2 square metre damp patch with mould and was as cold as a tomb, which dark terracotta walls and very low lighting did nothing to dispel. The proprietor and his manager tried to make up for this with copious amounts of guidance and information, including an almost unreadable map taken from Google maps which was needed because the hotel was so hard to find, hidden down a labyrinth of alleys which reeked of cat urine. Absolutely not recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Dar Tiflet is a smart authentic Riad in the heart of the old medina. We chose to let the house as it was decorated by the former berberian families, with a lot of old ceramics on the walls (zelliges) and furniture hand-made in medina. All commodities are at international standards, 6 bathrooms for 5 bedrooms, with WIFI connection... Our terrace is much appreciated for its panoramic view and his 3 independant parts. ... more less
