For what you pay for, it's inconceivable to expect 4 star service or surroundings. We wanted somewhere very affordable in the centre of the medina that was clean and comfortable for our 7 day stay. That, is what we got. We arrived late, about 8pm. The door was answered straight away, the receptionist spoke good English (which we weren't expecting, that was nice) and we climbed flights of stairs to room 5. Despite the heat outside, with the windows open, it was cool in the room. Good solid bed and clean (no bed bugs). The shower was always hot and yes, if you angle it incorrectly, you will flood the bathroom. The riad has retained a lot of its Moroccan architecture and charm so I believe there are a lot of original parts to the room.
The street noise is lively as you're in the centre of it all so bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. The WiFi works only outside your room which is an opportunity to meet your fellow travellers and not a negative in my opinion.
The breakfast is basic, toast, jam, coffee and freshly squeezed juice. Basic and filling fare, not to be sniffed at, especially when sat on a lovely sunny charming terrace listening to the sounds of the city below.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay here, it was quirky, clean, ideally located and worth the money.

We booked this place for three nights as it had pretty good reviews. Upon arriving, we were left standing outside knocking on the door for a good 5 minutes at least - as nobody was in reception, she appeared behind us (with the excuse that she was helping some tourists somewhere - yeah right) and let us in to check in.

At first we were given Room 1, the receptionist lady ran up the stairs ahead of us and into the room before we were even halfway up, so I had no idea where she had gone, until another guest pointed us to the room she had entered. I walked in to see her hunched over the toilet turning the water on. It was turned off as it made a constant rushing water sound when it was on. We thought that was the only issue. When showering, the curtain blows onto you and sticks to your legs, the water still pours out of the shower onto the bathroom floor and there it stays, as there is no drain. The toilet started stinking of urine after each use (with flushing), so soon our room was damp from the water on the bathroom floor, and smelled of urine (you cannot close the bathroom door unless locked from the inside). The wifi barely worked and cut in and out in this room. Did not work at all if sitting on the bed.

We complained the next morning and had to wait two hours until the receptionist (owner??) arrived (the cleaner tried contacting her during this time but she wasn't answering her phone) and finally got changed to Room 8. "YES!!!" we thought. It was much better! Little did we know that we should've checked the mattress as we discovered bed bugs that night as we were about to sleep. My husband killed all the ones we saw and we just ended up sleeping (very badly) for a couple of hours until morning. We checked out after having to pay for the two nights and moved to another Riad just up the street for our third night (we ended up loving that one and booked an extra night).

Room tip: Go somewhere else.

May I remind those who have given this place negative reviews - you get what you pay for. It is good value for money. Location great, clean, plenty hot water, meals good, Wifi and staff absolutely lovely. The Medina is a magical place and my room over looking the street below was where I watched daily life going on- loved it.

Room tip: Get a room with a window! Be prepared for Medina life noise and the Mosques call to prayers.

We forgot to download/star this place on our maps while we had internet. A local at the bus station helped us with our luggage and showed us the way. Gave us more information about the medina than was given by the reception on arrival.

The rooms were clean and tidy. Renovations were happening while we stayed. The interior was welcoming and homely. Although the staff seemed unapproachable with little assistance on what to do in the region. The included breakfast was substandard unless you like preserves and toast.

The internet was down for most of our four day stay. The lights were temperamental and couldn't rely on the bathroom light to remain lit whilst using.
