All that marks this riad from the outside in the narrow medina street is the front door and its sign but stepping inside you find yourself in a charming entrance hall and courtyard. The staff and management were most welcoming - I particularly appreciated the complementary beer after an 11-hour journey! My room, Suite Berbere, on the second floor was quiet, well-appointed and spacious and, although it did not have a view, it did have exterior windows, unlike some rooms in other riads. There was great attention to detail, for example, on arrival, my bathroom was strewn with rose petals. Breakfast was a treat, with freshly-squeezed orange juice and fresh breads. All staff were most attentive and helpful. All the main sights of the town were in easy walking distance, as were the bus station and taxi/car park.
