I stayed one night at this riad with my Dad and had a great time. We arrived at about 8.00pm after an exhausting 11 hours trip by bus coming from the sand dunes deep in the south-east of Morocco. I had confirmed our room the same day by e-mail via wi-fi during a short stop for drinks and snacks in a bar on the side of the road. I also had booked a couscous for two to be served in our room. We actually ate eat on the terrace in front of our room which was very pleasant and relaxing. Everything went very smoothly upon our arival at the riad. The room was great, on the second floor, large room, twin beds, very quiet, and clean. Confortable beds and linen, beautiful bathroom. Very clean everywhere. Staff is friendly and eager to help. Wonderful breakfast included in the rate of the room. Payment in Euros or Dirhams accepted as well as credit card. Not so easy to find when you don't have a detailed map of the medina. You might need the help of locals to guide you in the narrow streets of the medina if you arrive there by yourself for the first time. The hotel can provide such a map upon arrival which is very helpful to walk around the medina and the souks.
