Three hours from Gatwick and we were back two centuries. At first approach the ancient medina seems almost biblical and a bit intimidating --frenetic, with activity, mysterious winding "derbs" where you see only walls with small doors on either side. We soon found out that those simple doors can open to an ordinary dwelling, a secret garden, or a palace.
Riad Hayati is a beautifully restored old mansion located in a tranquil cul de sac just a couple of minutes from some major museums and lovely restaurants. The ambiance of the property is simply dreamy in its tranquility stylish decor. It has the feeling of a private residence,which it is. Ron, the owner, is a well traveled foreign correspondent for a television network.
Everything we had read about Hayati's staff and comfort is spot on. Warm,personal service, friendly but never overbearing. Our room was extremely comfortable and provided much needed rest during the July heatwave.
They get it just right here and for the money it's a real find. We reccomend it highly.
