Der Aufenthalt im Riad "Blue Berber" war ungeglaublich schön. Das Riad ist sehr leise und ruhig. Die Stimmung ist entspannt. Das Zimmer sauber und der Umgang sehr freundlich! Bilder sind 100% zutreffend. Gute Kommunikation. Sehr zentral, ca 400m zur Medina und dem "Place". Ich kann das Riad sehr gut weiterempfehlen!
