This riad is full of character, with beautiful ornaments and furniture throughout. We stayed in the chocolate suite and the huge rooms were charming and luxurious. There was a gorgeous balcony off the living room space, and a huge bath/shower in the bathroom with rose petals to throw inside.
The staff were wonderful, always ready to help us, -or walk with us to the medina so that we didn't get lost!
Breakfast was enormous, freshly made pancakes, cake, buscuits, etc.
The location is great, a little hard to find the first time, but anywhere in the medina is hard to find! a short short walk through the medina donw to the big square is perfect for walking off all those pancakes after breakfast. The roof terrece was lovely, we spent some time sitting in the sun and reading our books away from the hectic medina.
One peice of advice: the taxi's ARE allowed to drive into the medina as far as Dar Abiad. Often they will tell you they are not allowed to. They drop you off about 10 mins away and then encourage you to use the 'help' of the local children to find your way, then when you arrive at the riad the children all ask for a ridiculously high amount of money for their help. It's a nuscience more than a danger but it does get tiring. If you need help it's better to ask a woman for her advice as they generally wont ask for money as men and children do.
