My wife and I stayed at the Riad Carina with our teenage children in October 2013. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and did everything from organising transport from the airport to showing us how to operate a shisha pipe after dinner, which was a real experience for all of us, especially the teenagers. The location is excellent, at about 10 minutes from the Jemaa el-Fna, but the riad itself is quiet and peaceful in spite of being close to the heart of the action. The style is typically Moroccan, and our suite was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was served either downstairs or on the roof terrace, and was pretty substantial.
One thing to note is that while you can pay for accommodation with a credit card, you will need cash to pay for everything else, eg, meals, transport.
We would definitely recommend a visit.

Riad Carina is located in the southern medina, just next to the ancient royal El Badi Palace, in a quiet, perpendicular street.
