What a find! We booked a room in Riad Aicha to follow up on a 2-day/1-night camel tour in the Sahara. Based on our experience in other Riads, we had come to expect a clean room with professional service - but Riad Aicha is so much more. From the start, Ibrahim impressed us with his hospitality and general attitude. It got better with what was probably our top cultural experience in Morocco - Ibrahim guiding us through the gardens and irrigation systems of Hassi Labied as well as a local wedding celebration, explaining to us the intricacies of the local culture that would have been lost on us otherwise. It also made for numerous fantastic photo opportunities.
As far as the rooms themselves - very clean and well decorated. The Wi-Fi was not strong in the room we were in, but as soon as we moved into the common area it was quick. The food provided by the Riad was excellent as well. Highly recommended!
