The numerous reviews here sum up the many pluses of the Riad Laayoun. We appreciated Jean-Claude's help and hospitality and the beautifully restored Riad, as well as Simo and Rachida's hard work. This is a good value for money choice if you want a quiet and private base in the Medina. It is not a luxury Riad with a pool and sauna and every mod con you could think of, so don't go with the wrong expectations. I appreciated the wi-fi connection, and I didn't mind basing myself in the breakfast room to make it work!
Although the area immediately around the Riad is not impressive, during our one-week stay, we quickly realized that its location within the Medina is excellent. It benefits from being away from the backpacker end of the Medina at Bab Boujoud. But because it is so close to Place R'Cef, you can always get a petit taxi round to one of the other gates or anywhere else you want to go. At the same time, it is closer to the real attractions of the heart of the Medina, e.g. the Nejjarine Wood Museum, Seffarine Square, and so forth.
