We booked this riad because of the previous reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. We were graciously met at the main entrance to the medina by the owner Carlos, which was a very nice treat because it saves you time and energy walking aimlessly on your own.
The riad itself is situated near the top of the medina and the terrace provides quite possibly the best view of the city. There are 5 rooms within the riad and all are very spacious. The beds are comfortable and there is lots of bedding provided if the temperature is to drop. The room and bathroom was very clean...rooms made up daily. The shower was a treat as it had good pressure, very hot water and drained properly.
On our last days we caught an early bus and had to leave the riad at 6 am. We asked Carlos if it would be possible to pack some bread and cheese for breakfast on the bus. When we left in the morning there was a package all made up for us with bread, cheese, bananas and lemon squares.
Overall this place has been one of our favorites. It is set in a quiet location, clean rooms, comfy beds, great breakfast and wonderful hospitality.
Take Carlos' advise and eat at Dar Gabriel (great food, huge portions and you cant beat the price).
One thing to note. The riad is located at the top of the medina so there are about 150 stairs to climb.....but with all the positives of this place, and the view alone, it is a very small price to pay.
Carlos is a gratious host and takes pride in what he has created. The riad may not be very large but what it lacks in size in makes up for in hospitality. My wife and I truly felt like we could make ourselves at home.
