Most reviews I've read here before making a decision to stay at this riad are absolutely to the point. The place is very nicely decorated, the hosts are wonderful, and their homemade food is delicious. However, I would like to recommend everyone to slightly lower their expectations. No, I don't want to diss the riad on anything. But it is very important to know exactly what to expect, and sometimes one may have to adjust their western expectations to the Moroccan reality. In reality, the breakfast is almost always a few minutes late, the AC is not as arctically cold as it is at home, and the paint on a bathroom wall may be peeling. But despite all this, this riad is still a great place to stay and I would do so again without any hesitation.
Now, a few tips. Do reserve a taxi from the airport via the riad - in this case the driver will take you directly to the riad's door. It's close to impossible to find the place on your own unless it's marked on the map, you have a GPS, and you know the correct route. Do ask the innkeepers, Sara and Mokhtar, for recommendations about the food stalls on Jemaa El Fna. They have a dog and at least one cat on premises, so beware if you have any dog/cat allergies.
