We stayed at Riad Baladin in mid October and were thoroughly impressed by the service and quality of our stay. A last minute booking meant that only the ground floor room was available (it's quite a bit cheaper as it opens out onto the reception area) but it was comfy and perfect for our needs. Only small niggle is that the curtains could do with being a little wider to cover the windows! It's not a busy reception area however and we were never disturbed in the night.
The room was immaculate and comforatable, everything is provided. Nicole and her staff were extremely friendly and spoke excellent English. Their knowledge of local restaurants, shops and things to do were invaluable. We were given a map when we arrived and taken through the best places to eat and drink depending on how much we wanted to spend. We didn't book any excursions whilst we were there but Nicole was giving some excellent sounding advice to another couple and had we stayed longer would definately have got something arranged.
We stayed at quite a few Riad's during our stay in Morocco and Riad Baladin was by far the best value, location and highest standard of all of them. Thoroughly recommended.
