This riad failed to achieve the standards one expected, in my opinion. The bed was uncomfortable and I suspect was the source of a number of bites we received. Staff had to be reminded to provide basic amenities like fresh towels and pillows. Breakfast was disrupted by multiple bees/wasps feeding on the uncovered jams. The room had to be prepared... More

A lovely riad only two minutes walk from the Boulevard Laalou entrance to the medina. We stayed for 3 nights at the start of our week in Morocco and then one final night in a different room. Each room was comfortable and slightly unique, with its own charms and quirks. The bedrooms of the 1000 perfums rooms aren't huge, so... More

This hotel is GORGEOUS! It's a great location in the Medina. Our room was so nice! It even had a fireplace! Each and every detail of the room was intricate with tile work - I mean, wow! The room was comfortable as well. I would recommend you stay upstairs. If you stay downstairs, you're very close to where breakfast occurs... More

iad Kalaa is a top place to stay. If you're driving there then make sure you understand where to park, as it can be quite confusing. The parking is a few minutes' walk from the Riad (through a little backstreet alleyway maze). Professional staff that generally understand English (though prefer French). Rooms very comfortable. They were very in tune with... More

Good location, good staff, very attentive to the needs of the customer. A little old fashion but enough for one night and spend the rest of the time visiting the town, mausoleum, medina and then move to another city.
