Be aware that most Riads are approached along winding alleys, and this is no exception. BUT do not be put off as these alleys are used by many people at all times of the day and night and they are light. The tranquitity of this riad in the heart of the northern Medina is well worth the little walk. The staff in the riad are friendly and helpful. If you want anything you only have to ask. We can highly recommend the dinner especially if you make your own order. The lamb is delicious. Relaxing in the court yard sipping mint tea during the day or sitting next to the open fire drinking wine after a busy and tiring excursion into the city is sheer bliss. This is a very reasonably priced riad so you can not expect luxury but you can expect cleanliness,value for money and a friendly welcome.
If possible walk every where as you really feel the atmoshere of the city. You can walk from one side to the other in about 45 mins but do be careful of the mopeds! ! Also try to stand firm against all the offers of help to direct you, unless you are really lost, which is actually rare, as there will ask for money. Remember the average wage is 15 euros a day so a small tip is more than adequate.
A trip to the Atlas Mountains is well worth making. Try to go as part of a group as it is cheaper and more fun. Stout shoes and a stout heart may be needed as you may have to struggle over difficult terrain. But two 60 year old managed!
Enjoy but remember this is a very different way of life.
