Generally the riad is excellent, the decor is amazing and the owner Simo was adorable. The seating area on the roof however was covered in yellow stains which was explained by the strong smell of cat pee. There were also only 2 sun loungers, which would have caused some issues I imagine if the riad was at full capacity (10-12!). Luckily the 2 of us had it to ourself all week.
The location isn't great, and I wouldn't recommend staying in the old town medina unless you have your wits about you, as you will be heckled, sworn at, followed by drug dealers or hassled by false guides.
The major problem I had was having £40 stolen from my room, which they don't provide locks for. It had to have been the housekeeper or one of her numerous friends that seemed to wander in and out constantly, however the owner Simo was clearly disturbed that this could have happened and even gave me some money to try to make up for it, but the damage was done. Other than that, mainly very good...
