I could cite all the same amazing amenities and touches in the Riad Dar Dialkoum, but I'd rather focus on something that hasn't been talked about, the wonderful neighborhood around the Riad.
It's located close to the bustling food markets of Bab Doukkala, close to the wall of the old city. It's a perfect location for exploring both the old city and Gueliz. The neighborhood is safe, quiet, upscale, and residential, but still close to all the major tourist attractions. It's absolutely a fabulous area, and a great escape from the hectic souks.
The hotel is quiet, and it can be a little awkward to return late at night as one of the women will have to wake up and let you into the Riad, but they never seemed troubled by us returning late, and were always kind and courteous.
Really, there has not been one hotel in my extensive travels that has held a candle to Riad Dar Dialkoum. AMAZING.
