Our stay was lovely. We arranged a transfer to ensure we were met and safely delivered to the Riad, after reading that it was a bit hard to find. Very glad we did - we'd never have found it on our own (though there was no shortage of people who would have shown us for a few dirham!).
The staff were extremely welcoming on arrival and throughout the stay. We were sat down with some delicious mint tea and provided with maps and guidance on how to get to the main square almost as soon as we walked through the door (invaluable as it's very easy to get lost in the Medina). We actually only got lost once in the whole 4 days (and that was at 11pm on our arrival day when we took a wrong turn on our way to the main square – ended up in the souk (which closes at 10pm - which essentially entails various passageways being closed off with doors, turning the whole place into a labyrinth! Great story though!!).
Our room was spotless. The beds are hard, but that's good for your back, right?! And there are plenty of cushions and pillows. The jacuzzi was lush - definitely a must if you're travelling with a partner or spouse as you can literally closet yourself in there (with a nice bottle of wine, if you plan ahead!).
There are various trips you can do from the Riad, with their assigned drivers Isham & Aziz (both of whom speak excellent English, which cannot be said of a lot of drivers you are assigned if booking trips online - French being the default language for most).
All in all, if you are looking for somewhere nice to stay in the Medina, with all of its sights and smells (not all pleasant!!), then Riad O2 is a good choice.
