view web site ›'s insider take:

A ten-minute walk from the Medina's central square, Riyad El Cadi is made up of seven traditional houses. Its 12 supremely comfortable rooms are spread out over five interconnected patios and are individually decorated with a mix of Berber textiles, early Anatolian kilims, Ottoman embroideries, Chinese furniture, modern paintings, and Moroccan pottery. Note that rooms on the ground floor do not have AC. Various salons, corridors, and landings also serve as gallery spaces for the fine collection of both Islamic and international art and artifacts collected by the late owner during his travels as a German ambassador. His daughters now run the riad and, despite the trappings of antiquity, the overall feel is uncluttered and contemporary. Roof terraces shaded by tents offer views of the distant mountains, and you can cool off with a dip in the little pool or relax after a scrub and a massage in the hammam.
