My husband and I stayed at this Riad in the center of the Medina for 4 days. The hosts, a young couple from Paris, were absolutely amazing. They were always available and ready to fulfill our wishes and extremely professional. They understand the needs of customers and go out of their way to ensure that customers have a fantastic stay. Whether you want to relax or go visit sites, they will cater for anything.
The cook is absolutely amazing. I spent the whole day watching her cook and was amazed. There is also no risk of getting food poisoning as she very carefully selects the vegetables from the market (trip to which you can also go if you like) and thoroughly washes them. She cooks excellent traditional moroccan food as she would for her own family and it never failed to satisfy us and other customers staying at the riad.
The beautician is also a gem. She speaks french fluently and understands quite a bit of english too. Her massages are fantastic and a step above what I have had done in many other places. She will also give you a hammam upon request which I highly recommend. She is professional and unobstrusive but also keen to chat if you fancy.
The rooms were very comfortable and what you would expect from a traditional riad. They have the most amazing roof garden at the top where we spent most of our time in, whether it was for breakfast or to chill out on the comfy sofas with a fresh pot of mint tea and traditional morcoccan sweets. Heaven.
Overall, 10 stars to this new little riad who is great value for money.
