Super breakfast
Breakfast was superb. Room was large and bathroom was very good. However pillows need replacing. Roof terrace has been neglected. The courtyard lacks atmosphere and neighbouring building work has obscured quite a lot of light.

Charming, well decorated Riad
Great overall experience staying at this place! Had a bit of a misunderstanding when checking in but glad it got sorted out. Such a convenient location away from all the busy streets while still being central enough to be able to go back to multiple times throughout the day. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the room was well decorated and clean - we even had our own private balcony. Would definitely stay here again!

What an absolutely wonderful hotel! I don’t normally write reviews but I absolutely have to for this place. The hotel is beautiful, the room is stunning with a gorgeous balcony looking over the little courtyard. Superbly friendly and helpful staff, wonderful breakfast, and right in the heart of the medina. And little touches like fresh flowers on the table and in the bathroom have made this a place we will definitely come back to!
