This riad is great value and is decorated in a simple but beautiful style, without the intricate decorations of other riads but with lots of good taste. The rooftop terrace is amazing, and I'm still dreaming about the breakfasts they serve. Our room was very nice and perfectly clean, the only issue we had was noise from the inner courtyard being heard quite loudly... This was only an issue when some of the louder guests were present, but still it made sure we got up quite early in the morning! The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location is fantastic: you're right next to the northern part of the souks but you also have an easy route that'll get you to Jemaa El Fna in 10 minutes without fear of getting lost in dark streets in the medina on the way back in the evening. Being close to Dar el Bacha gives you an easy reference to get there by taxi, and from there it's just 5 minutes walking and quite easy once they explain it to you. We also liked that the neighbourhood doesn't feel too touristy, there are a few expensive restaurants but mostly it's just locals going about their business.
