We appreciated the opportunity to experience the culture by staying in the medina, walking the streets the short distances to the souks, the landmarks, the great plaza. Even getting temporarily lost in the beginning of our stay contributed to our understanding of the community behind the medina walls. We were two women, but we never felt unsafe, even after dark; the hassle factor, whether day or night, is ever-present and directed at everyone, both male and female. This riad is not a luxury lodging, but we preferred the authenticity of our residence. Because it is quite small, this riad is likely not a good choice for people with children, because there is limited "roam" space.
Our room at the Riad Dar Nael was comfortable and spotless; the staff were hospitable and helpful, and we especially liked our "home" dinners. Those were superior to any we had in restaurants or on the plaza, and beautifully served in the central courtyard. A wonderful stay, an excellent value.More
