Highly recommend this super comfy riad in the heart of the old medina. You cannot beat the location...minutes from the main entry, the Blue Gate. We were able to call from the train station and the owner met us at the Blue Gate to show us to the Riad, which would otherwise be very tricky to manage for newcomers to the Medina.
We stayed in Room 3 - upstairs with great firm beds, and only very minor ambient noise that one expects from a riad - in fact the hosts are very careful in the morning to be quiet during breakfast to respect all guests who may be sleeping in. The riad is on a very quiet street otherwise.
We very much appreciated how helpful and ever-present the owner, Karim, and his daughter Maryam were to our needs - offering directions to anything we wanted to see. A very special experience that Maryam helped guide and arrange for me was to visit the public hammam and get a scrubdown. The housekeeper did our laundry marvelously for a very reasonable fee, as well as freshening our room everyday with new towels and newly made bed.
