We intended to stay at the Riad for two nights marking the end of our stay in Morrocco. Arriving from Essaouira where we stayed at a most beautiful Riad, we were eager to see what the Riad Jonan had in store. We took a taxi to the street but the driver didn't know exactly where the Riad was located. Combing Rue Kasbah it was full of hustle and bustle. We decided to get out of the taxi and find it ourselves. After some tireless searching we managed to find it up some back alley way which was littered with children. We just didn't feel right when we came upon the entrance which was just a door with a little sign. When we went inside the Riad was old and dusty looking. The fountain was not working and we were told that we would be the only guests staying. The manager demanded that we settle our bill before the end of the day which was strange and made me suspicious. When we went to the room it was dark, small, and not living up to the pictures on the website. We didn't feel comfortable with the location, the fact that we would be the only guests and the shabby nature of the place. I asked my partner if we could find another hotel as I didn't want our holiday ruined. I didn't have a good vibe about the place. He agreed and we took a taxi to the Royal Mirage which was wonderful. For a slightly higher price we had peace of mind and luxury which was not delivered by the Riad.
