Very clean and tastefully decorated. Convenient to the main square (Jemaa El Fna) as well as the shopping area of the souks. Also extremely convenient to catch a taxi or caleche to Gueliz (new part of city) and the Majorelle Gardens. It is actually walking distance to anywhere you'd want to go in Marrakech, but the farthest end of Gueliz would be a half hour walk.
The owner smokes and so do some of the guests. If cigarette smokes bothers you at all, however, I recommend finding a completely different country to visit because there is no escape from it anywhere in Morocco, and I mean 24/7. I stayed in 5 hotels in various cities on my trip and they all had bars or nightclubs in them so you can't even open the windows for fresh air, it's all full of constant cigarette smoke. Likewise the restaurants, trains, taxis, even taking a shower and sleeping in the hotel gives you no respite from the constant cigarette smoke.
Another point, if you're at all squeamish about non-hygienic circumstances, don't go to Morocco. The toilets are a hole in the ground, no indoor plumbing in many places so nowhere to wash your hands. Think about the fact that the people preparing your food in the restaurants can't wash their hands either and it might bother you.
