Overal I would say go for it as long as you are a bit focussed on the hygiene factor. The hotel is on spitting distance from Fes' old Medina. Being an Unesco site this is a must visit, though I strongly recommend to get a local tour guide, since you'll be lost forever in it otherwise.
On the pro-side the hotel itself is actually quit nice nice. The innercourts (on three levels) are done in traditional marocan style, the pool being nicely integrated in that. It's a little gem in the chaos of everyday life in the Medina. The front desk staff is nice and helpfull. You can order beers or wine poolside.
On the con-side there is the general hygiene which is on regretable low standard. We found huge coakroaches running around the room, to which the staffs solution was to hunt them out the room (with my towel) and squash them outside. The staff in the breakfast room was beating this by cleaning the glasses and spoons with the T-shirt they were wearing. No thanks. The bar-dude was notoriously famous for not returning the change money.
My take ? Book the place without breakfast. .. it's nice enough .. make sure the room you get is clean and otherwise demand an other one
