We stayed here with family & friends while attending a wedding so we maxed out the whole place. The rooms were lovely and cool and the central courtyard was a great place to socialize and drink tea with everyone. It was clean and friendly.
It certainly is tucked away inside the Medina, which is part of the charm but finding it the first time is not easy. Felt like a nice friendly neighbourhood: we had no qualms about walking back late on our own. Take a torch though - the street lighting is not consistent on the back roads.
We only had one problem: we'd been promised all week we could pay the bill on our card but when it came to it they said the machine didn't work and we had to pay cash. We had to sprint around town in a hurry trying to draw cash from a machine before leaving. Machines break, I understand that but it would have been nice to have known before the last minute.
