We have just returned from Riad Charai. When the taxi from the airport stopped in the street for us to walk to the Riad we thought he must have made a mistake. We did not expect what we saw. The street is very run down, smelly, dirty and intimidating. However, there is a huge contrast once in the Riad. It is a beautiful old Moroccan building and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The room was lovely and breakfast was great, served up to 11 am! A member of staff will escort you in the evening if you want to go out for a meal in the Medina or to a taxi rank and they will also collect you to walk you back. I would not like to have been on our own at night time. Be prepared to be hassled every step of the way when you venture out. If you do want an adventure and somewhere to stay within the Medina walls, I would recommend Riad Charai - and do have a hammam.
I would recommend a trip into the mountains to visit the Berber region. The Riad will arrange this for you and you have your own car and driver for the day. We also did the city bus tour which is good value.
