After a long journey and a challenging day, we arrived at Riad Le Calife feeling exhausted. Our host Yasmine welcomed us with mint tea and then showed us our beautiful room and the dazzling view from the rooftop terrace.
Riad Le Calife is deceptively unimpressive looking from the outside. It is situated in the dusty, twisting streets of the crowded medina. (Make sure you get exact directions before you leave home -- we failed to do so, and this contributed to my stressful day). But the location is one of the great things about it. When you step out the door, you are in the heart of the buzzing marketplace, a UNESCO world heritige site.
When you step inside, this riad is beautifully decorated in a way that honors the traditional Moroccan architecture, with a modern, soothing twist. You will instantly feel pampered and at home.
However, the crowning accomplishment is the sense of hospitality. Yasmine and Alex are fabulous hosts and Fatima is a wonderful cook. This place is perfection! We have stayed at many hotels over the years, and Rial Le Calife ranks among the best.
