The hotel is hard to find, hidden in between small streets, not properly in the medina (but not so far from it; walking distance). It is not a typical "riad" as one expects for the name; it is more like a modern building around a mid-size patio with a nice cactus garden and a small swimming-pool, with not-so-clean water. The rooms look more like what you'd find in a regular hotel (with some moroccan touch) tan in a real riad. Staff were nice. The restaurant has a reputation (we did not have a full meal there) but surprisingly the breakfast was not as good as we expected. We did not like 2 specific things:
1.- on arrival we were offered a no-so-pleasant room (not good value for the price); we asked for a change to a different, better room, and this was accepted by the managing staff. Still, this 2nd room wasn't so exciting.
2.- on our 2nd and last night in the hotel, when we arrived after dining out we found out that there was no water supply in our room. We complained and were told that some maintenance work had been done on the water conductions during the afternoon and the technician probably forgot to open again the water supply. After aprox 1/2 h and some kind efforts by the night staff, this problem was finally solved.
On the whole, its value as a hotel is not so good (I can't judge it as a restaurant).
