Mohammed is a most charming host. His visitors are his friends. The familiar atmosphere made ourselves feel at home in this beautiful riad.
The crew is fantastic. Everybody was very friendly, helpfull, speaks English and/or French.
The rooms are clean and provided with a little safe. The staff gladly secured our larger belongings in their private safe. On our first night we had the room downstair which was great, but had no outside window but only a wide door to the patio. Without even asking for it (the room was fine as it was even without the window) we got a nice room on the third floor for the rest of our stay.
The riad has a roof terrace where you can have breakfast when asked for.
Mohammed served our last dinner up there which made the evening very romantic for us.
Breakfast was great eating in the cool patio. Honey, butter, jam, olives all served in little tajines, eggs and pancakes, where a daily treat!
The location of the riad is great: right outside the busy medina, close to the main road to catch a petit taxi to the new city. At night it 's all quiet in the streets so you get a good sleep.
The streets are safe and everybody is your friend. (you 'll soon find out why ;-) )
There are many other riads with public restaurants in the surrounding area, but they are quite expensive...and honestly, we had our best dinners at Mohammed's place. Everytime a 3 course dinner with a large variety of salads as a starter, a sublime main dish (try the tajine or vegetable couscous!) and fruitsoup for desert. Yummie!
We travelled all over the world, but this is the best spot we ever stayed.
Thank you Mohammed and staff.
Imène, good luck in China. We hope your knee gets better soon. ;-) Kind regards, Philippe and Kim.
And to you dear Booking.com visitor, why are you still reading this, you should have booked your room already!
Only downside was the loud speaker of the mosque tower across the street. Especially at 5 AM it kinda disrupts your sleep, but hey, that's part of this culture's heritage!
Mohammed, you might want to put some relax chairs on the roof terrace to enjoy the riad even more.
