We went to Marrakech in January, 2013 as a group of 4 white girls on a long weekend away. The riad is down a secluded alley (as is every riad in Marrakech) and after being dropped of in a taxi and pointed in the right direction, we paid a local boy 10dirham to take us to the door (lots of guys will offer to show you where to go - I'd advise spending the 10dirham (80p) because it is tricky to find on your own with a suitcase)
Greeted with mint tea, rooms were lovely, beautifully decorated, and equipped with blankets and electric heaters for the cooler winter. Lovely roof top terrace, and you can buy bottled water/coke/tea etc from the lady owner. We were given a map with highlights circled, and found everything easily enough. About a 10min walk from the souks, 15mins from the square.
Worth taking a torch if you are walking back at night, as the final few alleys into the riad aren't lit. Felt very safe in the riad, there is a night man who lets you in whatever time you want, and is around all night. There weren't any locks for the doors though - so take a lock for your suitcase.
Breakfast was epic - bread, pancakes, cake, tea/coffee/fresh orange juice and lots of jams/honey - all included in price.
Thoroughly recommended, very welcoming, friendly and lovely to relax after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
