Riad Shama
Staff at the riad are friendly. But the room's condition is not very nice, some lights not working, so the room is dark. Far away from the central square, takes a long walk or much over-priced taxi to get there.

Riad Shama
Stay was good in general; getting to the hotel was a little bit weird. We had to walk through the narrow and labyrinthine streets in the middle of the night. Be aware of people following you outside the hotel, they try to trick you. Also, Could be dangerous to walk around during Night hours. Breakfast was included but only some local pastry, local yogurts and coffee, no other option for eggs or Cereal. Bathroom was shabby.

Most Horrendous Experience of Our Lives
My wife and I had the most horrendous experience of our lives thanks to Riad Shama. We made a booking at this riad in Dec 2017. The hotel is located in a terrible, convoluted and dangerous looking area. When we finally found the place, the manager could not find our booking. I showed him the confirmation email and he was confused so he called his boss. After a 5 min conversation in french he said that they did not have any booking under our names and that the riad was full for the night and asked us to leave. As you can imagine at 10pm where all the alleyways are dark and filled with shady characters we were not happy to hear this. We went back and forth for a while; he was getting aggressive and repeated the same few words adding that he did not speak English (even though he was speaking to us fine earlier). We asked to at least use the phone at the riad to call to help make alternative arrangements. But this deplorable person said no and continued to aggressively push us out the door. We left. A bunch of kids followed us and kept offering to show us other riads which we refused at first but finally agreed as we didn't have much choice at that point. There was a real chance we were going to get robbed, beat up or worse but thankfully that didn't happen. After 3 tries, the 4th riad agreed to take us in. We decided to give the kids 300Dh (30€) for helping us. They got angry and wanted more which I refused. Riad Shama had the gall to charge us for the night too!

This is great!
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this place. It is very charming and the rooms are spacious and clean. TV didn't work for the kids but other than that it was great. Breakfast is basic but good!
