This large Riad has some marvellous advantages.
1 The position is superb, being only a few minutes walk from the Square, with rooms pretty much totally insulated from any street noise.
2The internal architecture is magnificent and the pool seems to be well maintained
3 The staff, who seem to be a family, are extremely friendly in a quiet way. As an example, they organised a taxi for us for 4.00 am and, to our surprise came to our room at 3.50 to make sure we were awake, carried our bags downstairs and helped us on our way.
4The cleaning is done with care
The trouble is the downsides are numerous. Firstly there is only hot water in the mornings - during the rest of the day it is tepid. Secondly the much vaunted air conditioning does not work (there are no remote controls left - it seems that this is a common problem in Moroccan run hotels). Thirdly, although it seems usually to be fairly quiet, it can be a bit noisy when there is a tour group here (ok -it's not all night noise as the tour groups have to get ready for morning departures.
In summary you don't get the quality that this price level can buy in some other riads. However we developed an odd affection for the family running it since they so obviously were nice people who perhaps just needed a bit of business advice
