This guest house is in a good location with plenty of available parking, but then parking isn't really a problem here. It is also a stone's throw from the medina/souk/area with restaurants. The decor is very nice. What isn't so good are the beds. Luckily there was an extra single bed in our room, because if we had both had to sleep in that double bed we would have been very unhappy. The bathroom was also very basic, very clean but it smelt of drains.
We had dinner one night. The food was nice but there are plenty of other places to choose from with equal/superior quality and cheaper. What really spoilt dinner was having to listen to the same Dire Straights song playing over and over and over and over again. The same happened at breakfast with another song. It was very irritating. Breakfast is the typical Moroccan stodge-fest of bread, pancakes, jam, etc, which is what you expect and nice (if you are not on a diet).
But what I really didn't like was the fact that the lobby/café/restaurant allows smoking, so you can't really sit there if smoke irritates you.
Although it is pretty cheap, I wouldn't choose to stay there again because of the smoking and very uncomfortable bed issue.
