Step back in time while staying in this authentically restored riad . Ornate with mosaic walls and floors softened with decorative typical Moroccan lamps, colourful rugs, plump cushions and sofas, the heart of this place is in the inner courtyard anchored with a fountain . Round tables covered by Moroccan embroidered linens surrounded by plush armchairs are strategically placed along the perimeter of the courtyard. The rooftop slides back to reveal the open sky when weather permits. The bedrooms have windows that open onto the courtyard . This is typical of the architectural design of the era this riad was used as a family home. Sounds of conversation from other guests do echo and waft upwards to the bedroom we occupied . Owned by long time Fez resident, Allol and his daughter, Khadija who studied several years in the USA, an effort is made to get to know guests and tune into their preferences. Room was comfortable , furnished with rich burgundy velvet and brocade . Lamp fixtures were attractive though did not shed much light . Bathroom had an exotic sunken tub and shower and was pleasant to use. We appreciated the scattered fresh rose petals on the bed and mother of pearl in laid table. Laundry was efficient and inexpensive. A continental breakfast was served though compared to other places we stayed , we found the quality and selection average. We did not have dinner here as we had gracious private home hospitality . Other guests spoke of their enjoyment of the Moroccan dishes they tasted.
