A quiet Riad in a slightly unsettling part of the town centre. That said, the staff were keen to accompany us to the square and ensure we knew our way at all times.
The room was clean and had excellent air conditioning (required in August) and we felt it was an ideal riad to see the medina without being amidst the hustle and bustle.
The location did lack close amenities for snacks or local places to eat but I would not substitute this for another closer to the mayhem of the square which you need to get away from at the end of the day.
There was a slight language barrier but the staff were very friendly and trust worthy, required when you are being hassled in the square by day!
I would recommend this riad for a very "local" and traditional experience without having to sacrifice cleanliness or comfort.
