Reviewed 23 January 2013

Clean, comfortable, authentically-decorated, high-ceilinged room with a big bathroom. If you go to bed early, the atrium restaurant may pose noise issues. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was substantial. A couple slip ups: when we checked out, the woman at the front desk disputed our discounted rate from Booking.com. She kept pointing to the tariff sheet on the wall. Even after I showed her my Booking.com reservation with the price on my iPad, she hesitated, but then finally agreed to the rate. Then we learned that the person who said they would arrange for our transport to the Tangier airport forgot to do so. By the time a taxi was arranged, we were running 20 minutes late. This led to a terrifying 80 MPH ride through a driving rain storm. We made our plane, but the trip was needlessly stressful. That said, I'd stay at this hotel again.

After almost a month in Morocco it was amazing to have a bath. Positively opulent! The room was lovely, the welcome warm and the service impeccable. We also ate here and it was one of our best Moroccan meals. The cats are pretty cute too.

My friend and I arrived at El Reducto after our hotel forgot about our reservation and was closed for the night. El Reducto staff were most helpful, showed us the rooms available, and offered mint tea and Moroccan sweets on arrival. We took the cheapest (€50) room and even that one was great. The hotel is clean, rooms a and bathrooms are big and beautifully decorated.
The location is also very good, at the entrance of the old medina and at the doors of the Royal Palace, you couldn't ask for more? Their food is the best in Tetouan. We had dinner there that night and their filled aubergines and tagines were to die for. I would definitely stay here in my next visit to Tetouan.

we stayed in this hotel in the medina, really a dream. we had the casablanca suite on the 3rd floor, along the roof terrace. the owners had a great hospitality and told a lot about Tetuán. the dinner we had was very tasteful. if you are going to Tetuán, don't miss this place, it' s a real diamond. Don't forget to read the book from Maria Dueñas, El tiempo entre costuras, the book tells a great story about this city during it's period of the Protectorada Espagnol.
The hotel has a guide for a medina tour.

Room Tip: choose the topfloor room, suite casablanca

We arrived tired after travelling from Uk via Gibraltar. El Reducto is quite easy to find just off the plaza by the Palace you step out of the delightful chaos of Tetouan in to a sanctuary. We had two nights in the Marakech room which was lovely.
Ruth was welcoming and efficient, quickly settling us in and giving welcome advice.
She has a knack of always making the right suggestion useful when you arrive tired. We loved having mint tea on the roof terrace, very relaxing after a run through the gauntlet of the medina.
El Reducto is also a very popular restaurant, the meals we had were fantastic.
There are only 5 rooms so you need to book, we saw people being turned away.
The Riad has been beautifully restored and as others have said is like a mini palace not surprising given its heritage.

I can't even write a review as the owner took one look at us and shook his head, that no he didn't have a room for us.......Admittedly, we probably weren't looking our best after 10 hours in the car, but after that reception, we felt we didn't want to eat in the restaurant either - always assuming of course, that we would have been 'allowed' to eat there!

We, too, had a lovely stay here. Beautiful room and a delicious breakfast included. We also had a great Moroccan dinner there. The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. Since we were driving, we parked our car in the big (inexpensive) lot to the west, near the street market. If you have a lot of luggage the hotel will gladly help you with it. El Reducto can be hard to find the first time so it can be helpful to watch the video on their website which shows the entrance to the alleyway and how easy it is to follow it into the hotel. All together a wonderful stay. We'd love to go back some day.
