I read all reviews of El Kennaria, and cannot understand how anyone can say anything negative at all about the hotel. I have stayed in many hotels in many countries. I paid the equivalent of £30 a night which included breakfasts,which were perfect,local breads with honey and jam and coffee( for a couple of quid! Come on, just peanuts, and... More

Great terrace, great atmosphere & great staff!! We came across this little Riad while wandering around the Souks during the day and we were invited to look around and we were quite surprised. Very good location and good setting in a very friendly environment. The Shisha is the best you can find around and the price is even better and... More

Found this hotel/restaurant wondering around a side road off the square, it was absolutely delightful. The food was excellent, the staff were really friendly and helpful and could not do enough to make sure we had a lovely evening, We had walked out of a restaurant in the square earlier as none seem to be bothered to serve and were...

Hotel El Kennaria is a very small riad located near the big square of the medina. The staff are very open and happy to speak and hang out with the visitors. However for me and my friend it was a bit too much. One of the waiters was drinking while serving us, and he was kind of pushy - trying... More

Originally booked a hostel around the corner which turned out to be very average. Very, very average. A friend was staying here and suggested I try it, glad I did! Air conditioning, en-suite, big bed, great breakfast, what's not to like? The markets were just up the road and after a good nights sleep I was ready for them!

I stayed at this beautiful traditional Riad/hotel 2 times, March and May 2016. It was a magical experience. I travelled alone, the hotel staff made me feel very safe and cared for. The manager Adil was very attentive which made the hotel homely - I made friends with the other guests. The owner has worked hard to give the Riad... More

The place is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the roof top terrace is great. The hotel is a short distance from the big square, and nicely situated in the medina. A simple breakfast with more than one cup of coffee is included in the price. If they offered a fried egg or two and less bread as... More
