Enjoyed staying there. The staff are very helpful. A few things are fairly overpriced.
Breakfast is definitely not worth 25 dirhams for bread, tea and juice. In fact, you're really only paying that fee so you can enjoy the company of other travellers and use it as a meet-and-greet.
Tours - you can basically get tours for places at half the price if you wander out and look at the main square area. I wouldn't recommend doing it through the Riad as essentially they're the same thing but double in price than from the outside.
Other than that, this is a great place to stay, the staff really are friendly and hospitable. I worked out that given the prices are quite cheap, they aren't making any money if they don't run expensive tours and auxillary charges. However I'd rather they brought the prices up and maintained a more standardised business model, as their guesthouse services are truly excellent.
