If you're looking for a calm, friendly, stylish stay in the middle of the atmospheric Medina, Dar Liouba is perfect. Patricia and her team are the most charming hosts: as soon as we arrived we were offered drinks, a map was produced and excellent recommendations given for places to eat, drink and visit, all of which turned out to be excellent choices.
Our room (Lavande) was small but perfectly formed, with lovely herringbone tiled floors, a bath alcove (looking out onto the rooftops) and a very comfortable bed. We were on the third floor (great exercise!), so just one floor below the roof terrace, where we enjoyed breakfast on the sunnier mornings.
Every morning (we stayed for 8 days) breakfast was slightly different: fresh strawberries one morning followed by pancakes and tiny bananas, a delicious fragrant rice pudding, moist fruit cake as well as freshly squeezed orange juice, breads, tea and coffee etc.
We had dinner there one night which we'd also highly recommend. My kofte and my husband's seafood tagine were as delicious as anything we tasted in restaurants, and when the bill arrived, it (together with some wine and beer) was incredibly reasonable.
Patricia's calm, warm, inviting hospitality together with the ambience she's created throughout this lovely riad make this a great choice for a chilled-out and cosy stay.
