Fair 4.0
The staff is very friendly but we felt we got less value compared to similarly priced Riads around Morocco. The beds were extremely hard, the room was dirty, and we were shocked that the toilette is in the bathroom. There was also a smell of still water from the bathroom that was very uncomfortable. This place has a very pleasant rooftop, though. To me this felt more like a bargain hostel than a hotel.

The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. Nabil and staff took the time to chat with us during check-in, recommended places to see and restaurants for dinner. One of the days they were sharing a meal together and asked us to join in and try! Food was absolutely delicious. Our breakfast spread was Moroccan dishes which included freshly squeezed orange juice, mint tea, coffee, msemen, beghrir, croissants along side cheese, butter, honey and jams. The place will likely be a bit noisier during busier times of the year because you can hear people walking in the alley outside. Perhaps that's the case because our room was on the ground floor.

I loved this Riad! The room had enough space. The AC worked perfectly! The bathroom was clean. The lovely ladies that work there were very attentive to our needs. We would totally come back to this Riad!

The lady who received us was sooo helpful and nice. She tried to make us feel comfortable and pleased with suggestions of where to eat and visit. My only complaint is that our air conditioner didnt work so we couldnt sleep very well and the tv didnt work either. Since they dont have reception 24 hours we couldnt complain. Our room was #5.

Good location, but smelly room
The washroom in the room is super smelly. We can smell it even with the bathroom door closed and the shower door can not be closed properly. There is water everywhere. Also, there is no cleaning service if you stay for two nights continuously.

I stayed in three sifferent raids. If I were to return, this is the one I would stay at again. The raid is small but the staff wae super helpful and kind. They speak English which was so helpful. Upon arrival I got a brief history of the riad and important information for navagating the medina. They arranged excursions for me that I enjoyed. This did not happen at the other riads I stayed at. That extra personal touch makes a huge difference in one’s stay.
