We stayed there 3 nighits in total on two separate occasions, it is not easy to find at first, but it is accutualy very near Jemaa, maybe 3 minutes from the square. Go to the opposite end of Jemaa to the Derb Dabachi street and turn right in to it, once in the Dabachi street just walk for maybe 200 m, and on your left side you should see an entrance to the Derb My Abdelkader Dabachi street, it will look like an garden entrance, ther will be an arch at the beginning facing the Derb Dabachi street with grapes making the shade after it, go in and walk for 100 m, turn the first street left and you are there. The ground floor room was a bit small but nicely decorated as is the whole of riad, nice location near the souks and Jemaa, take the time to chill on the roof in the evening after a hectic day around Marrakech.
Our room was dark and stuffy, ac would be welcomed instead of fan since it gets up to 40 during the summer, we were the only ones in the riad but were not even offerd an welcome drink. You can hear people talking (staf and there friends late in the night) since the room has a very thin door and windows, the reception had small windows connecting to our bathroom so we could hear people talking on the phone, plus the mosque is near so you will need every minute of your sleep, poor plain breakfast...there is room for improvement since it is really a nice riad with a very good location.
