... a significantly reduced sum through Booking.com. We were then upgraded to a corner suite so we are enjoying the five star treatment of fireplaces, cinema rooms, bar, billiard room, restaurant and the opulent furniture and surrounds.

The temperature was in the low twenties during the day and slightly cooler at night; it rained a couple of times and neither AC nor heating were needed anytime of the day or night. Our type of weather. Locals were not as aggressive and some nice hotels were quite reasonably priced. We walked around the Medina as it was ...
