We were given an upgraded room on arrival, always nice (except they then tried to charge us for it on check out, although the reception lady was very apologetic when we managed to communicate that we were told it was a free upgrade).

This riad was formerly four homes that have been joined together into a maze-like interior, making this a fun and interesting place to stay!
