Nice quiet riad
Reviewed 1 month ago

Cute quiet small hotel. Breakfast was good and pool area was nice. Its a bit far from the main area with all the restaurants requiring a 15-20 minute walk in the evening. Great location for visiting tombs and palaces, and not within the intensely touristy areas.

Our room, whilst very pretty, was quite dark. We overall though it was a bit too expensive for what we got.

Great experience

Abdul, the best house master ever. Very please to help, book taxis, city tours etc.
Also great food, both ladies cook local food when you arrive, when we arrive late at 1am, they kindly cook a snack for us.
Rooms and bathrooms are nice and well decorated. No TV in room.

Great stay

We spend four days in the Riad in February 2019.
The Riad is situated in the old part of the town and is very quiet despite the location. The Riad is beautiful and in a good state. The roof terrace is also very nice.
The service was perfect - only smiling and friendly people working in the Riad.
The only reason for not given the Riad five stars - was that the pool to cold to be of any use.

A terrific find

This little gem is hidden away but as you so off the bustling streets, Aneta & Abdul welcome you into this haven where your happiness is their utmost concern.
We wholeheartedly recommend this Riad, you will love the oasis and the care and attention to detail.

Peaceful Haven

We stayed at Riad Shemsi for a relaxing break after our daughter’s wedding. Sadly, we missed our outward flight from Gatwick due to M25 roadworks and lack of diversion signage so we arrived a day late!! Thereafter Noura and Abdul could not have been more helpful despite ropey weather (no fault of their’s). This is a wonderful oasis from the manic world of the Medina and I cannot recommend it more highly.
