Authentic riad experience

The hotel is a good choice if you want a really authentic riad experience at a decent cost. Located on narrow and dark alleys (with young guys hanging out in small groups), it is next to impossible find without a guide. Even though the alleys are small, they are packed with traffic, from cars to mules and bikes to pedestrians and after a rain they get muddy. There is hardly any insulation so everyone can hear everyone inside. I would not trust the lock on the room door. Some of the staff speak English more and some less. No cards were accepted. I got my shirts ironed by the lady making breakfast.

BED BUGS! What more can I say...ALOT

The hotel inially looked really clean and staff were friendly but very little English is spoken. I had to take someone from reception to physically Show the cockroaches and bugs in the bed and around our room. They were full so couldn't move us but offered us a room to sleep in belonging to guests who had checked in but on tour for a couple of days! OBVIOUSLY we said no! As we are an elderly couple we had no choice but to stay in room infested and bug infested room. I could not sleep a wink the entire time there. Also breakfast isn't all that, they serve you tea, bread and a crepe type thing everyday at the table you choose to sit at, there is no choice. Totally disappointed with the choice of hotel on this occasion and I only selected it because of the good reviews.
