My mother and I stayed for 5 nights in December. The staff absolutely made our stay fantastic! They went above and beyond their duties on my mother's birthday. They decorated the dining room and got a Moroccan birthday cake from the best baker in the Medina! The hotel manager, Abdul was so kind. We requested dinner for our arrival night and honestly it was the best meal I had in Morocco and one of the best meals of my life! The Riad is inside the Medina, easy 10-20 min walk to Jemaa el-Fnaa (main square), museums, gardens, etc. They have a private hammam (Turkish bath) on site, special rate if you stay several nights, definitely worth doing at least once! Breakfast was simple Moroccan fare, but delicious: breads, honey, preserves, fruit, juice, coffee. Agree with other reviews, the beds could be more comfortable. It wasn't that big of a deal to me, I was always exhausted by the end of the day and slept well. Fantastic cultural experience staying at a Riad instead of a hotel! Of note: Staff spoke French, Spanish, Arabic, very little English. If you're not fluent in one of these it may make staying here difficult, unless they've hired English speaking staff.
