This was our first experience of a riad. It was pretty and our room was pleasant, if long and narrow and very dark.
The worst thing was that on one night there was no water at all in the hotel and none the next morning when we were given two large bottles of water to wash in(not quite the same somehow!). The other nights we only managed to get a little warm water into the bath and even that took ages. At least we didn't have a shower! We were told that lack of water wascommon in that quarter of the medina, owing to the antiquated systems .
The riad's meals were good, if not cheap, and the staff were friendly and helpful.
