My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in July. It's owned/managed by a moroccan/french couple. In general (and by the end of our stay) we decided they're both decent people...however, the moroccan guy comes off as arrogant at times and was snippy with us for deciding not to go with his (overpriced) contact for our desert trek. So while the actual accommodation is ok, you should be skeptical when he offers you any tours. We actually enjoyed the tour around the medina that he arranged for our first day (3 hour walking tour) with a nice guy that was very knowledgeable and spoke decent english..the price was 50 euro for both my wife and I, which is definitely not cheap but in the end we felt was worth it. On the other hand, the original price we got from his contact for a trip to the desert was 5000 dirhams! That included return trip from Fez to Merzouga, and access to the driver whenever we wanted, but we found it hard to understand why he would think someone staying in his budget accommodation can afford such ridiculous prices. We were then offered just the camel trip for 2500 dirhams, which is still a lot more than the 40US per person that seems to be the going rate if you call any of the hotels in Merzouga. Ok, rant over.
The views from the terrace are really nice. The twin girls that work there are sweet and helpful. The location is pretty good we thought...nice neighbourhood with lots of shops closeby and easy to get taxis (which are metered...nice change from Marrakesh). Our room was quite hot at times. The aircon didn't work well....it was more of a fan that we had to pull close to us. The shower had no curtain, so floor got wet if not careful. While the price of a room is reasonable, the cost of eating a meal (other than the free breakfast) is high (as well as the tours he suggests, as already mentioned). The included breakfast was pretty good...including one egg each and good coffee (in addition to normal continental stuff).
One nice perk was the availability of beer. It wasn't cheap, but was a very nice treat.
