This is definitely an Hotel with old world charm and in the rushed life we all lead now it has a peace all of it's own. Forget the concrete blocks found in every city in the world and enjoy this completely different place to stay with very obliging staff (especially Fatimah, who runs the place) and with beautiful architecture it is very relaxing to sit and enjoy a drink after a hard days sightseeing.
The room my wife and I had was quite basic and the bathroom was not the best I have ever had but for a long weekend it was fine. The sheets were changed every day and the room was always kept very clean. Breakfast was mainly bread with jams and butter with either pancakes or boiled eggs and could be classified as adequate.
Riad Amssaffah is fantastic but when you go through the front door you end up in a completely different place with the dust and bustle of the souks all around and the excitement really grabs. From the Hotel it takes about 15/20 minutes to reach the main square but that walk through the souks is always different and entertaining.
It is about a seven minute walk to the hotel from where the transfer bus drops you off and in the heat that could be daunting to some although I found it fascinating.
It is perhaps not for everyone although I found the whole experience very uplifting and would tell all my friends about it.
