Stayed in the 4 person dorm, cheap at 10 euros a night but compared to the rest of the riad the room was rather bland, a little dingy and is not very well sealed so can get cool at night during winter. The associated bathroom was very clean, very large, with a fixed shower head and all the hot water you could want.
The rest of the riad was fantastic. The roof terrace (which the 4 bed dorm is on) is very spacious with multiple seating areas and has a fantastic view down over the medina. The inside of the building itself is stunningly decorated, has surprisingly fast wifi, and was staffed by friendly and helpful staff.
The riad is about 3-5 min walk from the nearest gate (Bab Guissa, signs along the way help in finding it, otherwise pay a local kid who will probably try and guide you anyway a few dihram) and about the same down a relatively simple route to the main medina thoroughfare.
The local area wasn't very attractive at night and the constant hounding from local young adults trying to sell me drugs and/or lead me wherever I wanted to go made me feel a bit trapped in the riad after sundown (the medina lacks Marrakesh's nightlife and becomes quiet, dark and strewn with litter after 5pm or so, I found it far better enjoyed during the day).
