From the moment we stepped into Riad 72 we knew that we were in for something special. There is a real sense of tranquility that owes as much to the refined tastefulness of the refurbishment of the riad as it does to the outstanding personlised service of all the staff. This is a boutique hotel at its best. No request, however small was too much trouble. The strawberries that we brought back from the market, which we asked to be washed appeared beautifully prepared moments later with a home made orange syrup and artisan yoghurt on the side. Dinners were outstanding and breakfast, served on the rooftop terrace overlooking the medina and with spectacular views to the snow capped Atlas mountains was the perfect way to start the day. Time spent in the kitchen one afternoon with Habiba, learning how to create some of the Moroccan dishes she serves, was a highlight. Cristian, who manages Riad 72 was extremely helpful and informative, providing not only valuable advice on where to go and what to see, but also offering insights into the cultural and historical aspects of Morocco. The room we stayed in, although one of the smaller rooms was extremely tastefully appointed with everything we needed...again the attention to detail was exquisite. No hesitation in recommending Riad 72.
