Owner Carlos is extremely welcoming. Accommodation on a whole is better than the actual rooms. Individual rooms are small without window. Make sure to get 1 of the large rooms. Sleep 3 and are spacious and airy.
Showers and toilets a bit run down.
Very many Italians probably drawn by name of place although German owner.

(Down side - nut case called Klaus was semi living there. Made me feel uncomfortable as a woman. I even changed hotel due to his odd behaviour. On day of departure owner Carlos had promised he would move him along as there were several other unacceptable incidents with Klaus)

Unique Qualities: The courtyard is covered with paintings and painted figurines. Lovely breakfast bar and great for socialising and meeting other travellers.

Art gallery/accommodation.

Great food. If Carlos is there to cook.

Sincere. Stayed during Gnaoua festival. Where other places were charging DH200/bed in room for 6, Carlos was charging DH200/double room
