We stayed here in February for 7 nights as part of a friend's birthday celebration.

My friend and I shared a room for 4 nights here. It was just perfect for us. Firstly, the people at the riad are lovely. I may not have the names exactly spelt right, but Fahima, Karima (who have been there since it opened some 13 years I think, which says a lot about it) and Mohammed were so welcoming,... More

“This is a tall riad so if you have a problem with stairs ask for a room low down. Our room had a bath with a shower hose attachment so check if you prefer a proper shower.”
