We stayed here for one night at the end of our trip. Managed to get a taxi from the main bus station for 60 Dirham (not the cheapest but best we could do on the day). The taxi can't go all the way to the door so you will need a map or an address written down to show some locals to get directions. You can get an airport transfer through the riad, door to door (you will have a guide from the closest street to the riad) for 15€ and I would suggest this if you are flying in.
The owner and night security speak English fairly well and are pretty accomodating. Previous reviews about the fixtures and amenities are correct. While they look nice every tap leaks and the shower floods quite easily. Otherwise the rooms and beds are quite clean and the airconditioning works well.
The free breakfast was good. Quite simple but tasted great and included breakfasts are always a plus for me.
We had an airport transfer the next day and the owner let us keep our bags in reception until 4.30pm after checkout which was great. The airport transfer was through the riad and while a little pricey you don't have to deal with any taxi drivers and it is door to door.
The only real negative I had about our stay here was the riads location. It's about a 10min walk to the main square but the neighbourhood you have to travel through is very rough. Locals live here so expect to hassled when you walk down the street. My girlfriend said she wouldn't walk alone here in daylight or at night. Be prepared to be offered drugs as well. This happened every time we walked to the main square. Just say no and they will leave you alone
