A handsome house in the south of the medina by the Bab Jdid R'Sif on four levels comprising five generous sized rooms, a central lounge and a rooftop terrace. Our resident assistant Hamza remained on site throughout and Fathiya during the day expertly and most modestly cared for us, the rooms and the kitchen. Despite one or two rough edges... More

Nice, clean, Riad close to medina. Great breakfast and Hazm our host was especially helpful. Mint tea upon request served with pleasure. AC worked well and someone was on hand to answer any questions or give directions.

We had a very pleasant stay at this Riad. Its very easy to find, near from the boarders of the MEdina. Hamsa the recepcionist is very helpfull, and help us arranging our trip to the desert and other things. The room is very spacious but need some maintence. The breakfast is simple but good.

Well we absolutely lived staying at this Riad. The room was amazing, very romantic and spacious. The bed was made up every day, the towels changed in the bathroom and everything was done to make sure we were comfortable. Hamsa was so lovely with us and treated me like an older sister, joking with us but making sure we had... More

Nice atmosphere and helpful staff. The riad is close to the centre but also far enough away from the medina to be quiet at night. It's full of character, but like most riads rather dark because all the bedrooms face onto the courtyard. The bathrooms could do with a little modernisation (and for some reason toilet rolls always seem to... More

What a great place! The France/Moroccan owner is really nice! He even has red wine!!! We felt really welcome. The food is also really great and good priced. The rooms are big and in a lovely style! Only our bedroom had a smelly problem. But the tried everything to solve this.

Riad l'Artiste is on a quiet street close to the Old City Medina (about 7-10mins walk). The raid is stunning to look at, clean, and the rooms (Africaine, Laura Hind) were spacious and well presented and both had (much-needed) A/C! Hotel manager and his assistant were very friendly and went out of their way to make our visit pleasurable (i.e.... More

“we loved our room (Laura Hind) It was spacious with an enormous bath - perfect for orange blossom steamy baths after a day in the medina!”

“The Persanne room is at ground level and can get quite noisy when guests are in the courtyard.”

“Bottom room has the best wifi connection, but it's right at the breakfast area. I'd say Africainne (first floor) is your best bet for connection plus location and quiet”
