Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Very pleased with the service. The Riad is very centrally located in Tetuan. The staff were courteous and helpful. I would like to come back to this Riad if I came again to Tetuan.

The Riad has a mini courtyard and a small fountain .

In an old house, whit a lovely fountain in the middle of the hall, the Blanco Riad conquers the eyes. Indeed, as some users said, the lower priced rooms are quite small (no table, no chairs). The other rooms are fairly larger. However, considering the fact that we spend most of the time outside, exploring the medina and the city, it was not a big inconvenience. The hotel is placed extremely close to the royal palace and the medina (the old town) therefore some noises can be heard. The prayer calls of the muezins could represent an inconvenient (it is a bit loud) but I consider to be apart of the charm of Morocco. The hotel is extremely clean and the staff is great! They are extremely helpful and nice. It is a very good idea to ask them what to visit while you stay in Tetouan. The food here is very good. I highly recommend the crepes au fromage et oranges. The breakfast is very good also. The large variety of breads, the olives and the homemade jam are great.

We stayed at Blanco Riad on our first night in Morrooco after a big day sightseeing in Gibralter, ferry trip, getting through customs in Tangier, and finding our way to Tetouan. Then we really got lost looking for the Riad. All we had to do was find the palace and then call. I have no idea how we missed the palace but we ended up on a car park (which turned out to be the right one) I had the phone number of the owner in Germany (who didn't answer) not the Riad :-(. We sent one of the guys off with a stranger who said he knew where the Riad was and the rest of us stayed in the car. We were two Australian couples in our 60's wondering,on our very first day, if we made a mistake travelling by car independently in Morrocco . It seemed like a long time but back he came with a very helpful staff member and the helpful stranger also re-appeared with a big trolley for the luggage. We had to run to keep up with the guy with the trolley through the crowded souk as we were a bit paranoid about all of our luggage disappearing. The Riad was delightful. The staff were really helpful and the rooms were large with very luxurious en-suites. We had organised dinner there and were so glad we did as we didn't really have the energy to go out to find a restaurant. The meal was great and we had a great time. Free wifi though the signal was a bit week in the rooms and kept dropping out. We enjoyed our Morrocan nreakfast with very sweet mint tea in beauitiful coloured glasses and a silver beaten teapot. Very glad we stayed here and would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: If you can afford the top suite go for it. It was glorious. It was empty when we stayed and we were...

I have stayed twice now and for a woman on her own I felt very comfortable. It is officially four stars I believe, but go thinking three stars is probably more realistic. Staff very nice and you can see an effort is being made to train them. Getting breakfast tea in the morning was a bit of a challenge though! Ask the taxi driver to drop you at Place Feddane. The map in my room was a welcome little detail. Dinner has to be ordered one hour in advance at about 16 euros. For that price being able to order a glass of wine would have been nice.

Room Tip: I had room Leila which might be a bit small for a couple but lots of daylight

on the face of it, it s a nice riad. Compared with what you find in Morocco, it s very nice.

it s a pity some different things are not looked after properly.
1. rooms are vey nice, intelligent and innovative lay-out. but central air conditionning is not working properly. stains on the white walls have not been cleaned up. no table and no chair in the room.
2. no bottle of drinking water in the room. . very unusual.
3. there is a patio or courtyard, but not very nice, not up to the style of the house. it s pity coz there is ample number of ways to make it elegant and nice
4. breakfast is horrible (coffee, bread) except the jam which was home made and delicious.

also the riad is in a noisy medina environment. dont forget your ear plugs. . if you want to fall asleep early!!

definitely, will come back in this riad at my next visit to Tetouan, hoping that things will further improve. .

This place was lovely. We stayed in the cheapest room, and it was small, but the charming interior and attention to detail more than made up for the size of the room. Hotel staff were all great. Nice patio ("garden") area outside with tables and chairs for you to eat or just relax. We had dinner here one night - 160 dh for 3 courses - and the food was some of the best we've had in Morocco.
