Caveat emptor! Stairs are steep, there is no elevator. Rooms have
neither lock nor safe, bathrooms are dark and mediocre at best. There is
no full-time reception/management, the administration is a little
haphazard, and wifi unreliable. The whole riad experience is something
special, but not to everybody's taste...
An ancient and beautifully restored house in the medina of fez, the
world's largest, most authentic, and most chaotic. You really need
help to find the place (which they offer, for a price). The hotel is
situated in an obscure yet safe alley in a calm quarter directly off
the pedestrians (and donkeys)-only talaa kabira, some 10 minutes walk
from ain azilitan parking and 20 mins. From bab boujeloud. The place
has some really tasteful rooms, a cute terrace, and very helpful staff
(the english owner was away, but his manager issam was super
knowledgeable). We had one acceptable though not cheap dinner.
Breakfast was included, and good. Guests have use of fridge and
kitchen, grocery store and laundry etc. are all close by. Incidentally,
we noticed that the riad is definitely gay-friendly, something not self-
evident everywhere in morocco.
