In general this is a wonderful riad in a great location. The rooms are nice and the overall ambiance is terrific (lots of flowers, drapes, sunshine). The morning breakfast (comes with the room) is great and you will not walk away hungry. You can arrange to have an evening meal and if you do you will not regret it. You will be served on the roof-top terrace (we were all alone) and the food was wonderful. Everything is very fresh. The staff are very helpful even though some of them struggle with English. The riad is located mere steps from the hustle and bustle of the medina but provides a quiet oasis once you step inside. The only drawback to our stay was that there was a large group also staying at the riad and they tended to get back from dinner late (after midnight) and have loud discussions until very late. This was annoying to the guests who had retired early.
