I have just returned from 5 nights at this wonderful Riad. As always with these buildings, you arrive at an unassuming front door tucked away in a quiet alley. Behind the door is a characterful and wondefully restored building. We stayed in the grey suite. It was comfortable, tastefully furnished and large, opening out in to a good sized bathroom, which had a hairdryer. The owner Fred, his partner Kathy and the team made us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble. Professional service delivered in a warm, natural way. Just as we like it. We ate at the Riad twice. The food is traditional Moroccan expertly and lovingly prepared by Samira and Fatima, helped by their team always using fresh ingredients. It's worth accompanying Samira to market to buy the ingredients and spending an afternoon in the kitchen cooking, a truly enriching experience. Alcohol is available at the Riad.
Weather permitting breakfast and dinner are served on the lovely rooftop terrace overlooking the medina. There are a number of steep steps to climb to get there.
It's worth ordering a taxi from the Riad or your travel agent to get to there from the airport as cars cannot stop inside the Medina and you may have difficulty finding it first time when you arrive. The Riad though is ideally located to visit all the sites in the Medina.
