Myself, partner, 5 year old niece and sister stayed hear during April 2013 for 3 nights.
Initially, when landing we had delay with locating our luggage which consequently affected our transfers....however due to the location of the Riad, and dependent of your time of arrival, you may (as we were) be dropped near Club Med, it is then a 10 minute walk with a man and a wheelbarrow for your luggage (yes!) to the Riad, expect to pay about 30 dirhams for this. Whilst this can be a little tiring after your flight, it gives you an amazing opportunity to take in the sights, sounds and smells of this atmospheric hub of activity! The Riad was beautiful and a calm oasis within an excellent location to the world famous souks. The staff are extremely polite, however do not understand English very well, so make sure you know some basic French / Arabic phrases! Mrs Najat, the housekeeper, was wonderful, she gave us a map of the city and also assisted us in booking a quad biking and camel riding excursion.
The breakfast was delightful, consisting of homemade yoghurt, French bread, homemade jam, freshly squeezed orange juice, croissants, pancakes...
The decor is very rustic and authentic, you are left to freely roam the riad, and the roof terrace was very peaceful, overall Dar Al Assad was absolutely gorgeous, I would highly recommend it!
