Our stay in the Riad was much worse than we expected from the reviews. The few good things first: the riad is very close to the Blue Gate and is clean and cheap. However, the Riad is in the butcher section of the medina, so expect to see camel heads hangings from the shops, goat heads and live killings of chicken everytime you go in or out of the Riad. The smell inside the building is also bad and in our room there was a very bad smell coming from the bathroom. The communication with the riad was horrible: we send two emails few days in advance to cancel our last night and received no reply. The quality of the breakfast was quite poor compared to most riads. Usually, we almost never fail chosing a hotel following the reviews, but this time we failed. Maybe the boss has changed, or there is some other reason, but in our opinion the place was much worse than the reviews. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Perfect for the price we paid

I really liked our stay here!
Advantages: Wafa and Zakariyya are super nice and their hospitalty is perfect. Wifi was good in our room called 'Meriam'. Breakfast is included and enough. The riad is in a side road of the sooks nearby the gate bab boujloud. I thought that was absolutely perfect when you wanted to get back by taxi and did not know how to tell the taxi driver how to get back (they hardly speak English. Most of them speak only French and Arabic). You have a lot of cash machines nearby the riad and places to eat.
It is superrrrr close to café clock which has amazing food and the atmosphere is very nice!!
Disadvanage: the bathroom was a little bit smelly but I have experienced this in multiple countries all over the world so it is not specific for this riad.

Great location, very close to one of the gates, Paco and the female staff ran the guesthouse very well. The breakfast was substantial and delicious. Paco especially went out of his way to show me a little of the madina and a few historical places close to it. He was very helpful and kind. He gave me tips about good places to eat and places to shop. He made sure that I got a reliable taxi when I left.

This riad was great. The guy who runs it was one of the most helpful people I have ever had at a hotel, even with limited English skills. The rooms are fairly small but was perfect for us. The location is great right near the main gate. We had to leave early the last day and the manager went and bought us breakfast to take with us which was very nice and he didn't have to do. Overall would recommend this place to anyone.
