After its total renovation, this Riad evokes Moroccan tradition with elegant understatement. My regular single room featured luxury curtains that were not overly busy, windows on multiple walls, and the latest in high-end bath fixtures. It features a full outdoor patio and interior fountain. The location in the Medina is superb, since one easily navigates either into the Medina maze or out to the major plazas and Royal Palace. This is almost the only medina hotel with easily followed signage starting from an open plaza. Above all, the restaurant is an innovative gourmet island, well worth the menu prices. Even if one overnights elsewhere to save money, it is worth eating here. The staff is large and diverse enough to manage multiple languages. Its members tried (at least) to help me gain access to the ancient underground water system in town, which is well-preserved and featured in amazing archaeological photos (but not open to the public).
