Lovely riad that has been decorated in an east meets west style. Sadly Nelly wasn't there when we stayed, but we were looked after very well by Sultana and Khadija who were both amazing and caring. The breakfasts on the terrace were fabulous and relaxing. I also think it would be a wonderful place to stay in winter. The rooms...
