Partner and I stayed February 2013. At first you think 'where am I going!' down dark alleyways, but then you come to a door, go through and inside is a tranquil and welcoming place. It was about 25 degrees when we went, and I imagine that in the summer this is a welcome retreat.
We were offered herbal tea on arrival and also offered a suite, and it was nicely furnished. There was LG digital air-conditioning if you needed it which I imagine would be good in the summer, but it was a nice temperature day and night anyway.
We were made to feel at home rightaway. Can't comment on the dinner menu as we were only there three nights, and ate out. Breakfast was coffee, yoghurt, flatbreads and pancakes with jam and was nice.
Dar Crystal is in a great position for Kosybar, Tanjia and the Palais Bahia which are all worth a visit. You do have to walk along some dark streets lit by only a couple of lamps and occasional passing bikes and cars for about 200m, we never felt intimidated but I might if I was a lone traveller. In the day the same streets were very busy. It is about a 15 minute walk from Djemaa el Fna.
The map you are given on arrival is excellent.
We had the Hammam in an evening which we pre-ordered that morning. Thoroughly scrubbed but invigorating! There is a nice rooftop terrace. At night the interior - low slung cushions, plants, nice tables and plunge pool - is lit up by many little lamps and looks very special.
