The first of our Riads on our trip, this was a gem of calm in an otherwise bustling city.
To get there, you have to take a taxi to the nearby rank and then walk for 5mins though the local backstreets, winding your way to the door! A great experience for those wanting to immerse themselves in the local culture!
The Riad itself is simply decorated, using white and pale colours to pervay a rustic luxury. The rooms, if anything were a little on the small side, but comfy and authentic none the less. The atmosphere was relaxed and calm and so quiet for a local area. Perfect for exploring the city on foot then retreating for mint tea and an afternoon nap!
Great value due to 4 nights for price of 3 deal. Service lacked slightly as hosts were a little more absent. We asked for recommendations of activities and not a huge amount of guidance was given, but overall a great base and very enjoyable stay.
