Sweet Celia

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 13, 2007

Riad Celia is tucked into the corner of a tiny square about ten minutes walk from the Djemaa El Fna square and about five minutes walk from where the taxi had to park. Like all riads, all you see on the outside is a door, and the inside is arranged around a central courtyard, on several floors. There’s no lift, so if you don’t like/can’t manage a few flights of stairs, it might not suit you.

Our room (number 8) was right on the roof terrace, and whilst basic, was bright and comfortable, and very clean. The comfortable double bed was on a raised section of the room, which could be curtained off for privacy, and there was a divan and table on the lower level, with a tiny bathroom (just a shower, but plenty of hot water).

The room has air conditioning, which we didn’t use but I expect comes in very useful in the hotter months, but no tv or mini fridge. There is a TV in one of the ground floor salons, but since there’s plenty of outside entertainment, we didn’t bother with it.

Breakfast was served as soon as we appeared in the morning – plenty of coffee or tea, Moroccan bread (yum!), cake (unusual, but also yum!) and some kind of pancakes, with butter, marmalade or fig jam. They also do snacks, and dinner at night, provided you order in the morning.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful, but don’t speak a lot of English – if you can speak a bit of French you may not need to rely on sign language!

Unique Quality: One of the best things about the hotel is the wonderful roof terrace (right outside our room) – breakfast is served there and it was a great place for an early evening drink, or just to sit & relax in the sunshine on the wicker chairs. There’s no bar in the hotel but they happily provided us with glasses so we could drink the alcohol that we’d bought from duty free.

I would definitely recommend staying at the Riad Celia if you want a clean, comfortable place to stay, near enough to the action but still quiet, and for a very reasonable 50 euros a night for bed & breakfast for two. Rooms 8 – 12 are probably the nicest – the suite looks grand, but you don’t get the terrace or the breeze.

Directions: Just up the alley from the Bahia Palace

This Riad had a very good location, less than 10min by walk from the place Jemaa l-Fna. Very clean, wonderful place to take your breakfast.
It is very calm and inside the medina, so you don't need to have a car for your visit, everything can be doing by walk.
