Firstly, the transfer from the train station was 17euro (cost us about 2 euro in the taxi on the return journey) and really not worth it. We chose it as we were concerned about finding the riad in the winding alleyways of the medina, but the transfer van merely drove us to the edge of square and dumped us there, in the pouring rain.
After paying a local to take us there, there was no one to receive us (even though they knew what time we were arriving as they arranged the transfer). Eventually a cleaner opened the door and pointed to a room, then left us.
It was not until our third day (when it was time to settle our bill) did we eventually have any conversation with the staff. Our only conversation with the owner was as were leaving, when he chastised us for leaving breakfast uneaten. We told him we were told nothing about breakfast and pointed to our booking which makes no mention of it.
The room was very noisy on the ground floor as there is a large gap between the door frame and the wall, you can hear every sound from the courtyard (and vice versa I am sure). The shower was also poorly constructed meaning the whole bathroom floor was permanently flooded.
