My faith in tripadvisor is always reaffirmed when I stay somewhere like Riad Matham. Myself and my partner satyed for 3 nights towards the end of January and found the Riad to be a haven of tranquility away from the busy streets and alleys of the city. First impressions were excellent and every day made us realise how lucky we were to have such a relaxing place to come back to after hours spent exploring the Souks and local gardens.
We took the owner up on his offer to arrange a taxi from the airport on arrival and were glad we did. Thierry met us off the taxi and walked us the short distance to the Riad. It took us a day or two to learn our way around the central Medina and we wouldn't have stood a chance finding Matham otherwise. The meal which we had booked on the first evening was also some of the best food we ate during our entire 8 day visit to Morocco. Breakfasts were excellent and plentiful, meaning that a coffee/tea and pastries would keep us going until an evening meal.
I won't talk too much about the rooms, suffice to say I don't think that even the beautiful photo's here do it justice.
The Riad is a 10 minute walk almost due north of the main food/market square in the city, however I would urge any visitors to explore the streets to the south and east of the square, towards the Mellah district, as they also contain great opportunities for shopping. The Riad is also in an excellent location to explore some of the museums and the tanneries.
Merci beaucoup Thierry and all your staff for making us feel so welcome and at ease.
