For the price it was fantastic , really friendly helpful guys and relaxing space on the roof terrace, rooms were air con and clean, if you want a pool there are day options with great food and bar within 5 minutes. Stay here for a third of the price of the 5 stars round the corner and enjoy their friendly hospitality
Pro''s Clean,friendly and easily walkable to main centre Con's Got conned by taxi driver demanding a tip (transfer was included) don't use hotels taxi man v.expensive go up to corner will cost half the amount. Seemed very dingy when 1st arrived but got better with a good sleep. Need to state number of beds required rather than no.ppl - this applies throughout morocco's riad's. Owner will offer wine but there is a super market 5 min's away... worth the walk. Overall basic but good Base if traveling about we on stayed 3 separate points during our 10 days very accommodating.
Stayed here for 4 nights. Staff friendly. Riad needs some tlc.....tap in sink not fixed down, toilet loose on floor, no wall fixing for shower so have to hold the shower head yourself, no wardrobe only drawers so pretty much lived out of a suitcase, TV didn't work despite them trying to fix it (we weren't bothered having no tv). We were in Room 2 on first floor by the way. First 2 nights were cold but if you eat at the hotel, there is only the open courtyard to eat so were freezing cold. Enjoyed sitting up on the roof terrace on the last 3 days getting some warm rays and drinking alcohol we bought at Carrefour during the afternoon. One day the room wasn't cleaned but we told them and they got it done that evening before we got back to the Riad. All in all, you get what you pay for and we had a great price for our break.
The walk to the Riad from the drop off point was a little unsettling, it really is tucked away down some twisting alleys, however we had a warm welcome from Mohamed, our room was not ready but it was 11.a.m. So I kind of expected that. The room was clean but disappointingly was on the ground floor and opened onto the communal area right next to the reception. The bathroom was large but the electricity wires for the lighting cello-taped to the ceiling was a bit unsettling, the plumbing seemed to be a work in progress, although the hot water was abundant if you were patient to get it running through. The staff were always helpful and friendly, though could be a little noisy in the late evenings perhaps un aware that after a long day our relatively early retirement meant we were ready to sleep. Breakfast was simple but traditional and tasty, We also ate dinner one night which was comparable to other food we ate on our visit. This Riad was part of an extremely cheap holiday deal, had we paid more we might have expected more but for what we paid it was fine. It was well located for getting to the sights and once given a few basic tips was easy to find our way in and out of.
The decor of our room was very nice and rustic. The manager Mohammed was a tad aggressive and the location of riad was quite noisy. We paid for a trip to the waterfalls but were not told of the hidden costs of paying more for the lunch..(which was supposed to be included as advertised) Lovely weather though as was the housekeeping staff
I stayed here for a week, the first 3 days the room was ok in that the heating worked in the actual room, unfortunately this didn't continue so despite my attempts to get the hotel staff to fix it, one of the staff turned it on, seen numbers appear and said its working, the room was literally like sleeping in a burial casket, with lighting to match, due to having no windows the room was pitch black even during the day without the light on. The "dining room" which consists of two small round bar type tables and a large square one which I assume is referred to as the authentic berber area was akin to being sat in a large fridge (and by time any food actually arrived) a freezer. Despite everyone else being dressed in coat, scarf and hat to eat both breakfast and dinner, I resisted for first 2 days, but as my skin started to gain a bluish tinge and I had genuine fears of being consumed by frostbite I at last relented and dressed in full going out gear (if I was dressing to go out on a winters morning with snow on the ground in the uk). I see one reviewer (with a much higher opinion than myself) describes meals as a casual affair, if by that they mean you wait 30 minutes to 60 minutes for a small pot of yogurt to be placed in front of you, they are right, the bread discs which could in armed combat be used to both defend yourself and attack were served breakfast and dinner, I believe that due to having not consumed them, or hid them in the sofa where they probably would have lain for several decades until someone unearthed them asking the question what are these strange items and what was their purpose, were they in fact weapons of mass destruction (or maybes only minor destruction due to the size of the place). I was more than amazed looking at several booking sites on my return to realise the establishment has a business centre, and sauna and massage, 24 hours room service and reception, fridge and mini bar as well as a whole host of other facilities that the management obviously failed to make us aware of whilst booking in. And despite the claim to 24 hours room service we were unable to order a soup on our first night of arrival from the limited menu) before 9pm due to it taking too long to prepare. We ordered 3 meals which had to be ordered in the morning, on the days I did not order it was because I couldn't find any staff at the 24 hour reception /desk as we left hotel. I ordered lamb tagine which consisted of 3 very large bones and very little lamb, I ordered a grilled farm chicken kebab which when it arrived covered most of the area of the plate, this was served without any extras apart from the aforementioned bread, my optimism was short lived, the majority of what was on the plate was again bones, and very little chicken, I decided to play safe on the next night ordering 2 omelettes, 1 plain 1 cheese a cheese salad and chips although not on the menu I was assured I could order them, indeed I could, however they did not materialise at the meal, the omelettes were both plain and the salad had turned into a morroccon salad devoid of any cheese, add to the blanal food the long wait in the freezing room we decided after the 4th day to reduce the risk of frostbite any further and miss breakfast for the rest of the week. The tv when it worked only broadcast German channels. The bath looked nice, however due to depth of it, you could only fill it around an sixth full before the hot water turned cold. I have stayed worse places, however they have usually been in the outdoors and I haven't usually had to pay to do so.
in one word ive found this hotel was fantastic and all of the staff were so good specially the manager was very helpfull .the best thing is the hotel was in a traditional berber area which is fantastic. breakfast really healthy and delicious .

This was much as you would expect in interior Morocco. Externally a non descript building easily miss-sable, down a couple of back alleys where cars can't venture. Inside was different. Moorish design and style with a central open courtyard around which the rooms were clustered. Our room had an equal sized bathroom. All very attractive. The reception was poor and puzzling. We were left for a good hour unattended in the courtyard. Staff clealy had other priorities such as computers and iPads. Still they were friendly but only seemed to wake up when Mohammed appeared who was helpful in organizing many things including taxis, room services and trips.Breakfast was an ample buffet and well prepared and presented. We ate in the attractive courtyard with a few candle lights (some sbuffed it). The menu was very limited to standard Moroccan such as couscousand tangine but it was well cooked and flavoured and much better than expected. This is a delightful place to stay
