I can't recommend this delightful riad highly enough.
Brahim (the manager) and his brother Ismael are charming, efficient and go out of their way to make you feel welcomed from the moment you arrive. Brahim has a wealth of useful and fascinating information which began over a cup of mint tea. He then walked us to the main square to help us orientate ourselves in the medina before we set off exploring this beautiful city. Ismael was always there for anything you needed, running up to the terrace and back downstairs to the kitchen with the delicious food and anything else we asked for with unfailing cheerfulness. The food, served on the terrace in (the usually) good weather, and in the cosy downstairs room if a bit cool in the evening, is a real plus for the riad; e.g. tasty tangines with lots of fresh vegetable and salad dishes in the evening and eggs, pancakes, fruit and more for breakfast in the morning. There is also an honesty bar on the roof terrace for good local wines and cold drinks.
All the rooms we saw were very spacious, beautifully decorated and had pretty windows onto tranquil internal courtyards. There are quiet sitting areas either inside or sometimes just outside the rooms and a stunning roof terrace with lots of different comfortable seating both in shade and sun. Plants flourish for and add to the peaceful atmosphere of the whole riad.
The location is perfect - just near the main square. We had many enjoyable expeditions to the souks and sites and could get back to the riad and it's peaceful terrace as often as we liked to relax.
I recommend unreservedly for the overall quality of the experience and the beauty of the environment - attention to detail is superb in the accommodation and the service.
