I recently stayed 3 nights in Riad Charlott with a friend in the Valentine Suite. Everything was fantastic, I cannot fault it. It certainly deserves its high ranking. It was beautiful and clean and the staff were very friendly especially Jean Pierre the owner. We had an evening meal on arrival which was great and the house wine is very nice and reasonably priced – all of which was served on the roof top.
However please do not think that you will be able to find the Riad from the airport – a taxi booked through the hotel is a must!! We have to admit that as two single females we were overwhelmed by the maze of alleyways, and having arrived in the dark we were actually frightened to leave the Riad the following day, but Jean Pierre was very patient with us, explaining the route with a hand drawn map to the main square. Well it was certainly an adventure, and when we found our way, I admit to being very pleased with ourselves!! And perhaps the best thing about the Riads position is that we were forced to walk through the Souks (which we may have otherwise avoided due to the constant hassle to buy), but the experience was brilliant and not to be missed.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Riad Charlott, however if you are two single females be aware that you may feel vulnerable, and that you have to be polite but forceful with your “no thanks” for directions/company etc. If you are happy to do this then stay here for the overall experience, and embrace the challenge to find the square.
Jean Pierre, thank you I will definitely be back
