We (me and my girlfriend) stayed in this riad for 2 nights just last week.
We had booked the riad for being one of the cheaper ones and still looked nice.
The riad was actually nicer than I expected: the bathroom was relatively new and very clean and the room was also very nice. We had breakfast in the "patio" of the riad which was very relaxed and enjoyable. The riad also has a roof terrasse where you can take the sun or have a beer.
We were overall very happy just a few comments, more for your awareness than anything else:
- the riad is not easy to find: either insist they send you a detailed map (I think it's entering thge medina at the right space and then turning right 3 or 4 times) or ask them to pick you up or (as we did) pay the local children a small tip to take you (we paid 5 MAD which they thought was too low, hey it was 2 min work for them, but in the end they accepted).
- Secondly, we went on a 3-day excursion with a tour company that we got in touch with via the riad's owner. The tour was great (young people, which we appreciated) but be aware that directly booking is always somewhat cheaper (we paid 90 EUR per person instead of the 80 EUR those paid who booked directly). However, we were aware and happy to pay this little extra to make sure our tour was nice - which it was!
Overall, good service, nice rooms and the location only about 10 min walk from the main place of the medina.
Would be happy to go back!
