We stayed four nights in the Riad; first time to get into the riad might be a little scary but you get used to narrow, dark back streets of Medina so it is definitely not a deal breaker!
There are 5 rooms only and they are all decorated by the interior designer owner in different aesthetic. Each room is equally beautiful, very chic! I read some people complaint about the way to the riad, darkness of the rooms... then go and stay in a very western way decorated chain hotel! The Riad is in top 5 boutique hotel list at Elle Magazine and definitely deserves it. Very peaceful, great decoration, serves best dinner - we ate in other places too - but the most important part of the riad is Hassan and Abdul! they are amazing!! they are ready for any help 24/7! I hope the owner appreciates their hard work...
the only down side is wi-fi is not ayri g at the riad. I could not get any signal in the room. Breakfast was very decent, diner was superb!
I strongly recommend this riad for those who like to experience life in Medina but. still stay in a chic place!
Use their transportation service cause it's difficult to find the hotel first time, plus you can't carry your luggages by your self that far cause cars can't go in that far into streets.
Beautiful beautiful beautiful place!!! Thanks one more time to Hassan and Abdul!
