From the moment we walked into the riad we felt welcome. Haseem was more than hospital and not only gave us a hand drawn map showing the way to the main square but walked us there on the first night. This was a 5-10 minute walk (certainly not 20 as stated by some!!). There are people wanting to show you the way for money, these are local scams and as long as you keep walking and stick to your guns you will be fine.
If coming to his riad hotel transfers are a must as it is difficult to find and cars cannot get down there. Our driver walked us down without asking, some don't and other than paying a local for directions we wouldn't have found it!!
If you want mod cons and pristine rooms then I recommend you stay in the new town. For an authentic moroccan experience here is perfect. The rooms are clean, showers are hot but take a minute to run through and being woken up at 5am for call to prayer is quite an experience if you can get back to sleep! The only slight disappointment was probably breakfast which was a little hit and miss.More
