The staff is very welcoming and friendly, the all decoration is Moroccan traditional, as the food (very nice breakfast and the tagines were wonderful).My girlfriend went to the spa to have a relaxing massage, and after one hour, she arrived to the room feeling new!! Yes, there are some cats and some things are not perfect, but this is a...

the Riad is very dirty, particularly the bathroom. This is a huge concern because my 2 year old son was also with us. There was also another child's dummy under the bed (see photo). This is particularly worrying as my son could have picked it up and put it in his mouth. We were told we had to leave his...

This is a great wee find. It doesn't have "ideas above it's station" Our room was decorated so nicely, in fact the entire Riad has a certain charm. Which is emphasised by the excellent service. All the guys couldn't be more attentive and when I mentioned I couldn't eat bread I was provided with an alternative breakfast (which was a...

The staff was friendly, but their advises was not always the best, we found better places ourselves. One of the rooms we had was nice, the other very poor. The Hamam and pedicure was very overpriced and a bad experience. (the hamam was cold) This does not deserve to be called a spa. The place reeked of cat piss, especially...

We booked this riad mainly due to the pool (that's why we spent a bit more), which could however not be used due to renovation works. The rooftop terrace was nice though and was good to relax in the sun. Staff was very friendly and helpful too. The riad is vey hard to find and it would be useful if...

The stuff are very friendly, and will constantly go out of their way offering tips on where to go, delivering water, and just generally being nice. Our room was a huge letdown though. People in the courtyard had a clear view of the toilet and shower in our room, with no shower curtain and only a red stained window (which...

We arrived here from the airport in a pre booked taxi and got collected from the road.This Riad is fine. It's authentic and the roof terraces give you a view over the city. Staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the same everyday but easy to eat and the yoghurt was delicious. Our room was fine and cleaned daily....

We were enchanted by the lovely pictures and the good price offer on a popular booking site, and somehow we were blind to the bad reviews about this place which we really regret now. We were picked up at the airport and taken to a totally different place. They didn't say anything, they were just hoping we would be total...

On the strength of reviews elsewhere we booked 4 nights here . Allow at least 24 hours to learn the route to and from the main Jemaa al Fna square. The map on the back of the Riad's card is pure fiction. It's 20 minutes through the souks with 4 crucial junctions to memorise. This is a problem because you...

We choose a riad to get an authentic experience of accommodation in the Medina and were not disappointed. The Riad consists of two properties that have been converted into one. We booked through "Booking.com" which offered a limited choice of rooms and ours could be describe as "shabby chic" it had the facilities as described but there were rooms that...
