We chose Riad Clos des Arts because of its website and some of the reviews we read. I would not say we had a horrible time, but I must say that this riad is very basic and more in line of a budget hotel. II am rating it average. but that is being a bit generous.
The location of the riad is on a very busy market street which it interesting but extremely noisy. Day and night motor bikes speed by and if you are not getting almost crushed when you walk out of the riad you certainly can't sleep very well onece you are inside. The noise is horrendous.
The staff are friendly and seem to try their best but the place is quite disorganized. The mangement call it "quirky" but when you do not have working air conditioning on a very hot day and the hot water is erratic that is not quirky.It is bad maintenance and management. Attempts were always made to repaIr things,but somehow the repairmen never arrived when promised. Food was adquate,but very small portions. Seemed as though every piece of meat was measured carefully.
In all, this is more of a youth hostel than a hotel. Not bad for backpackers,but not for us.
