This was a great riad with private parking close to the gate of the medina. It is very close to one of the access points to get on top of the old medina walls. The small window out of the shower looks out over the medina walls. The souk is 2 minutes away from the front door by walking. We had the superior double room with king bed and it was a large room. The mattress was pretty stiff like I like it and the frame of the bed is built into the floor so it doesn't squeak at all. Several of the employees speak at least a little english.
Breakfast was good and the mandarins here were the best mandarins we had in all of Morocco. The Tajine dinner is enormous and tasty...two people can't finish it, try as we might. We also did the cooking tour and class where you go to the souk to see and sample the ingrediants being bought and learn to make Tajine later. The hotel guide was great and also helped us find our way to a little art gallery to find a painting. The class was informative (and we learned we'll never take the time to cook Tajine at home) but the cook doesn't speak English. We lucked out though that the manager's wife (who is American) was able to come by and translate for us.
You will need to have euros or Dirham for the room, tours, and cooking class. Email the riad after you book and they will send you good detailed instructions for how to find them. We stayed right before Christmas 2016.
