...why there are hundreds of 5-star reviews for this place. We have found many. The place itself is stunningly decorated, ideally located within walking distance from everywhere but a bit tucked away from the hustle and bustle of mopeds, snake charmers, barbeques and drummers. It is, in fact, an idyllic oasis where to rest and refresh after exploring such a wonderfully intense city. One could spend hours browsing through the immaculate details of this riad- from the choice of velvets to the intricacy of the decorations on walls and tables, it is a delight to witness someone's dedication to beauty and pleasantness.
We stayed initially in a smaller room, which was beautifully decorated, then were lucky enough to be upgraded (thanks again, guys) to a bigger one which was even better. This place is just serious about all-around quality as it is friendly, welcoming, and relaxed.
The rest is as you can read below: Grant and Michele's kindess, never missing a morning greeting and always up for a chat and on top of recommendations for restaurants and places to see; the attentive, smiling staff that can find you anywhere in the riad to offer you tea and pastries; the quality of breakfast (and lunch was phenomenal as well) and the infinite courtesy of the custodian. Place all that in a setting with fantastic of choice for seating/ sunbathing, an amazing rooftop view of the Atlas mountains and the city's skyline (storks included), add a friendly, mischevious cat and place it in the old part of a magical city, and you have Assakina, one of the finest places we have been lucky enough to stay at.
