Our Tangier Guide (Achraf) told us about the blanco Riad since we insisted to stay an overnight in Tetouan, it is a vitally a very good, hotel with a nice decoration, and the rooms are very beautiful and you can feel the Andalusian style once you got into. my only complain about the hotel is the location , it is in the medina; in the morning is very crowded and in the evening is noisy. But after all I enjoyed staying at blanco Riad, I highly recommend it for one night In Tetouan

I was there during my vacation this summer 2019, I went from spain crossing the straight of Gibaltar then to sebta Morocco , some locals told me about riads, then heard about blanco riad, the decoration was cool ,calm place , neat ,well organized, I asked the front desk gentleman if I can pay with my credit card, then he told me that only restaurant patrons can pay with cards not for juices? ! I know that there is a minimum charge if I wanna use my credit card , I was astonished , I was inside the restaurant ordering juice and coffee , we were 5 customers by the way, also the front desk staff told me that it wasn't his position but just covering another worker , so it's not my fault it's the management's fault . Unfortunately I don't recommend this place for other guests ,there is plenty of other riads around the area . Staff is unprofessional . Date occurred : September 8th 2019 Around 10:30 Pm or 10:50 Pm

Extraordinary stay at the Blanco Riad Hotel in Tetuan! A cozy hotel located right in the middle of Tetuan and next to the Royal Castle and the Medina. Spotless hotel with a delicious breakfast! Price wise completely fair for the service provided as well as the rooms features - to highlight the mattress (super conf). Since the beginning we were overhelmed with the level of hospitality showed. The owner jumped out of reception so as to personally welcome us and explain a bit further on regards to the city and some nice recommendations! Highly recommend

This place is very well located and offers a variety of different bedrooms and a nice restaurant with an outside area that has a jasmine tree. We stayed in the Sheherazade bedroom, which had a great double bed but a bit of an improvised single bed that was a bit disappointing. The amenities were great - awesome shower! We had delicious breakfasts here and a reasonable dinner.
