- using services in the riad is fine until you get the bill. They wanted us to pay everything at the end, and seemed a bit annoyed when we asked to settle the bill at the end of each day. I read this in previous reviews but I'm glad we persevered as I think it would have been hard to itemize and understand clearly what we were paying for at the end. e.g booking the hammam and deciding not to get a manicure, the manicure was still on the bill when we went to pay and took a lot of explaining just to get it removed.
Staff, especially Badar(hope I am spelling it correctly), really make a place like this a great stay, constantly available to make sure you have what you need, without being intrusive.
Menu is not extensive but sufficient for a meal in, It was quiet when we were there so it was nice to have a quiet night with a glass of wine after the hustle and bustle outside.
Breakfast is standard for Morrocc we thought with nice fresh bread, pastries, yogurt, juices and fresh eggs prepared as you wish(just have to ask for them)
Tried the hammam one day which was nice and very affordable compared to European prices, nice that it was in the Riad.
You are a c. 15 min walk to the main market, can be confusing getting out of the little side streets to get to the main road(this is where the main market is), fine during day, but we avoided walking at night. Taxis were plentiful however, just best to keep the Riad card with you with the address.
We discovered the casino and a really nice restaurant on our last night, found the restaurant in a great book the riad had which listed all the top restaurants in the city, worth looking at especially as all restaurants are not necessarily in plain view or easy to find for tourists, worth checking it out.
Room was nice and comfortable.
The roof was nice for sunbathing, even in December!
You may be woken by the call to prayer, but as you are in the medina, this is part and parcel of the location. After the first day, we did not notice it.
