Interaction with Guests
As your host I am here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. So If you need any advise where to go for lunch or dinner, where to go for a daytrip as well, you just ask me. Where to shop for special gifts?? Pop the question. Do you want to visit a hamam and get a massage?? Peter knows.........
My neighborhood in the medina is just great! It ´s safe and very social. Always people around shopping, going to a Mosque or having a coffee on place Sakaya. It´s close to the Grand Scco ( 2 minutes) where you find a taxi ATM-machines, cafe´s and restaurants. And not to forget one of the hotspots in town the cinema Rif!!
In the medina there is only one way to get around. Walking walking and walking......suia suia....step by step. There is so much to see you know. Don´t rush!!
Outside the medina you grab a taxi if you want, but I would say again just walk. Unless you wanna go to the beach near Achakar or have lunch at Le Mirage or L´Ocean. Anyway a taxipick-up is easy to arrange.
We respect our neighbours and housequests!! Smoking please not in the rooms but with so much outsidespace...no worries if you just need to light a cigarette!!
