The riad is down a quiet little side street in an area not far from the souks and the Jemaa El Fna square. The area it is in you get no hassle from everybody and it stays lit because of the street lights and shops until late. The place is beautifully decorated and very clean.

Our experience was as good as all the glowing reviews say. The evening taster meal was excellent. Mint tea at sunset on the roof terrace was a delight. Gilles has a wealth of good hints for your stay. Merci, Gilles et Dominique.

The location was perfect for exploring the old city. The riad's rooms are beautiful, wonderful colors, traditional craftwork beautifully executed. Intimate without being crowded, lovely courtyard in the center of the building with a central garden. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Excellent breakfast includes local specialties.

Tea was served and we immediately had the sense of being in a special place, treated like cherished family. It was so comfortable and relaxed. The...
