We had a great day/night here. Our room was lovely, as were the others we were offered, everything was clean and tidy, high ceilings, lots of light, well set out, etc. The hotel itself was easy to find but set a little back from the main thoroughfare of the medina, so it didn't feel overtouristed and chaotic.
All the staff we met were genuinely friendly and helpful, helping me sort out wifi, pointing out good places to visit and so on.
Breakfast was probably the best we've had in Morocco - although perhaps I just think that because they provided pomegranate - wonderful wonderful wonderful - although with all the usual staples (pastries, bread, yoghurt, spreads, tea, coffee, juice, etc).
Definitely somewhere I'd be keen to go back!
If you're a light sleeper you might want to be a little picky about your choice of rooms - we were there on a Saturday night and faced toward the street (two floors up) and it was a little noisy, fine for us but I know some people would have been bothered.
