Riad Dar Nouba is a nice family house with 4 rooms. The owners (a couple) are very friendly and help you to navigate the souk. The rooms are all decorated in traditional style and are located around a ‘gardened’ courtyard. Breakfast is good. There’s a nice common (reading) room and a terrace with solarium. The kids liked it also a lot (including the house cat). In the evening the owner let us smoke together from his shisha (waterpipe - i’ll not start a discussion on smoking here - it was fun). Médersa Ben-Youssef is just around the corner and a must see, as is the rest of the medina.
