We were there in May 2013 and it was already getting very hot. This is an absolutely beautiful Hotel. When you enter the Riad its calmness and elegance is captivating, you feel immediately relaxed and at ease, a peaceful retreat from the busy streets. The staff is very friendly and welcomes you with a warm smile, service is impeccable. The location is close to place Mellah, at the edge of the Medina from where you have easy access to the Souks but also can find a taxi in 1 minute walk (some of the Riads in the Medina are in pedestrian areas). The best part is breakfast at the roof terrasse, from where you can see the storks breeding. In the evening you can lounge there, have dinner, smoke a shisha pipe if you want to or just relax. Pierre the GM is very friendly and if you book a cooking class, will show you around the market place (not where the tourists go but where the local people including the hotel buy their supplies). The cooking class was a truly great experience, you will learn in an easy way how to use all those different spices and the cook has been on TV shows and gets many visits from international chefs who want to learn from her. Try it :-)
