We stayed 3 nights, and as others have said it was an oasis in the middle of what is a crazy mad city!
We arranged a taxi collection from the airport through Laurent and were met at the Palais Bada by his manager Jacques and thank goodness he did. The place is impossible to find if you try alone. It was a 10 minute walk through some very narrow streets although Jacques ensured each turn was highlighted with some indication for us to note when we were out by ourselves. We were served mint tea and pasties and given a tour of the Riad and after we unpacked, Jacques wife accompanied up to a local cafe they recommend for us to get some lunch.
Jacques, his wife & all the staff could not do enough for you. Ate here the first night & had a fabulous meal - moroccon soup, tagine of meatballs & vegetables and dessert for 15 euros was very good value.
Ate out at a recommended restaurant the 2nd night & Jacques walked us to the taxi rank (even though we knew the way) to ensure we were not ripped off with the price!
The room we stayed in (No.6) was beautifully decorated & laid out but you need to be prepared for the lack of privacy - only a curtain seperates the bedroom from the toilet.
Breakfast was on the roof terrace & was a lovely spot to enjoy a very well presented & served breakfast - omelettes, crepes, yoghurts, cheese, bread etc.
My wife was ill our last evening & although we had booked & paid for the bus to travel to Essaouria, we decided to take a taxi which Laurent arranged. It was expensive but necessary.
I would definately recommend this place & would stay here again.
