The owner Mohammed was very kind and went out of his way to be helpful as did the two kind and friendly sisters working there. He organised cheap transfers from the airport, advised us about things, gave us free drinks, generally made us very welcome. The hotel was clean, comfortable and cool with a great breakfast terrace with lovely views to compliment the traditional Moroccan breakfast with yummy fresh orange juice (some other riads we stayed in didn't have fresh juice) and hot pancakes along with bread, butter, jam, cheese, yogurt, tea and coffee, great! Lovely library and courtyard area, location was good and quiet at night but a couple of minutes down few little alleys take you right into the souks (market area). Safe as a lot of security guards and police at nearby museum etc adds to feeling of safety especially at night. Cant remember if there was air conditioning but was so cool inside the room we didn't need any. large room with desk and seating area and large bathroom with shower and old traditional clay bath, very atmospheric with several shuttered windows overlooking the courtyard. There are some slightly cheaper options closer to the main square but this was very nice if you want a traditional experience. Personally I also like the fact it is Moroccan owned as most Riads seem to be French owned and I feel better contributing back into the local economy more directly.
