I stayed at Dar El Menia for 5 nights. I found it exactly as described on the website. The decor was lovely and the room comfortable and clean. Nice view from the roof. (The stairs up to the roof and rooms are very steep.) Breakfast was good and the maintenance man and his wife who cooked and served it were nice. I ate dinner there one evening and that meal was also good and very plentiful. We couldn't eat it all. The location was perfect - just around the corner and you were in the Medina and it was also very close to the car park and Cafe Clock.
Graham booked me an airport transfer, a transfer to the train station and a half day tour to Volubilis, all of of which were problem-free. Volubilis was certainly worth the visit (but very hot). I can't remember the driver's name, but he was pleasant and drove well.
The only thing I really didn't like about Dar El Menia is that the doors to the rooms cannot be locked, so you can't leave valuables locked in the room. Also, one evening a new arrival mistook their room and walked in on me while I was in bed because the doors are open.
