When we arrived in the morning after almost no sleep after a long travel, Muhammed waited for us when we got dropped off by the taxy near the Riad. He welcomed us and showed us into the most peacefull little courtyard with banana palm trees, fountain and singing birds. We were served mint tea and homemade moroccan pastries made by Fatima, one of the sweet women working there. All the way through our stay we were so good taken care of by all of them. Delicious food in the morning, recommendations and day programme discussing with Paolo.
The room itself was quiet, spacious, beautiful and clean. The Riad is in a very quiet and hassle free area of the medina, and close to the big square, shopping and some big monuments. They also have a nice roof terrasse, where you can look at the ruins of Palais Badi and say hello to all of the storks there. We have travelled a lot of places, but never experienced such hospitality as here.
They can also arrange day tours, book events for you etc. We went on a trip in the Atlas Mountains and stopped by mosque Tinmal, which we can highly recommend.
Thank you so much, hope to come again some day! :)
