“Better not”
Reviewed 17 July 2010

Pros: Hassan, the manager, is nice. The breakfast is small but tasty and traditional (mint tea, freshly squeezed orange juice, bread, honey). The patio is peaceful. There was hot water in the bathroom.
Cons: The rooms are in pretty bad shape. They are old and musty. There was no A/C and it was much needed. Rooms were not very clean when we arrived and they were not cleaned in the three days we stayed there. The linens' cleanliness was doubtful.
Overall, I would not recommend this place. Also it is really hard to find.

Reviewed 3 April 2007

We booked Riad Adraoui online for two nights and absolutely hated it! Unfortunately, we were offered the worst room in the house - room number 5! The shower did not work, there was a terrible smell coming from the bathroom, the room itself was very small, dirty and basic with no storage space. We didn't find the staff particularly helpful or attentive. It was definitely not a good value for money so avoid the place if you can. We travelled a lot around Morocco and I promise you can do much better!!!

Reviewed 29 March 2007

The website that calls this a "backpackers' hostel" is accurate. It is acceptably clean (though only one sheet is provided), the rooms are private, the place is safe and secure. But--unless you are very young and very tolerant of other guests who can stay up late in the courtyard talking loudly and having a good time when other (perhaps older) folks want to sleep, consider going elsewhere. . . Plus, as a basic hostel, it is very over-priced. For either backpackers or older visitors, you couldn't beat the value of the Jnane Mogador, more elegant and closer to the square. . . Riad Adraoui does have an excellent staff, and Amine, who is on duty from 8 pm. to 8 a.m., is very friendly, speaks pretty good English, and will do anything for you, from hooking up your computer to finding a trustworthy personal friend to be your informal "guide" to lead you around the confusing streets, to personally going out to the square and finding a taxi for you early in the morning.
