My friend and I stayed in the blue room at this riad in late December 2011 and after being led through a maze of streets (and worried that we couldn't find our way back after we left!), we were welcomed into this friendly, clean, and quiet riad. The three staff members that we met were all amazingly helpful and friendly, though at the time only one spoke english. If you have rudimentary french, you'll do just fine. The room is on the second floor with windows that overlooked the courtyard and we didn't have any issues with noise from the other guests. However, be warned that there is a curtain instead of a door to the bathroom so unless you're really comfortable with your travel partner, you may need to respectfully leave the room at certain points of the day! Good thing there's a roof deck, which is also a nice quiet place to have breakfast (simple but delicious!) and to rest between exploring the medina. There are no views as the surrouding buildings are all about the same height. The location is great because it is between Djema el-Fna and the sites to the south (Badi Palace, Saadian Tombs, etc) which allows for a stopover during sight seeing. We had arranged for a driver to pick us up and when the driver reached the furthest point he could go, a second person was waiting to help us with our bags and to lead us by foot to the riad.
Overall we felt very well cared for without feeling smothered and I would definitely recommend this riad!
