This has to be one of the ultimate places to stay in the medina and I have stayed in my fair share. It's a beautiful building, which has been immaculately and sympathetically restored. It's authentic and unbelievably comfortable with wonderful beds and excellent bathrooms- buckets of hot water. The staff are lovely people and exceptionally good at their jobs. Outstanding.... More
