I chose to book the entire riad for our group of 10 and I couldn't be happier with my decision. The service, staff, food and bedding and the little touches are just way above and beyond. There is one soft pillow and one firm pillow for your choosing, there is a phone for you to take with you pre-programmed in...

The Riad El Arsa was a perfect place for us. The owner, Noel and staff attended to our every need. Noel provided information and directions about the points of interest and he was always "right on". The room was peaceful and beautiful. We were served mint tea when we returned from our excursions. The breakfasts on the rooftop terrace were...

This is a beautiful riad with a focus on really good quality service. The rooms are clean, felt authentic and fully equipped with all you need. Loved the bathroom.Extras like a local mobile phone pre-programmed provides an extra level of security and comfort. Wasn't needed but it was nice to know it was there. Website doesn't really do it justice,...

We had a great time here, so good that we ended up extending our stay to take advantage. The staff were friendly, knowledgable and great fun. The Riad itself is in a perfect location for exploring the Medina. I'd highly recommend staying here on your next trip.

This is a cosy and nicely decorated riad placed in a calm part of the old city. Getting there is a bit of detour but once you've walked it a few times it's easy enough to find and not really that far from the main square. The hosts are very helpful and welcoming and the breakfast up on terrace is...

I really enjoyed my stay at this riad. It is well located in the medina on a quiet lane close to the main square, however, I'd recommend having them help you get to the riad from the taxi drop-off point when you first arrive, because the medina can be a bit of a maze. The staff were very friendly and...
