We booked a couple of days' luxury here having spent the first part of our Marrakech holiday in a Riad. Well worth it.
It's very central, just off the Jemaa El Fna central square and across from the main mosque. Taxis are easy to get outside, but most of the Medina is walkable.
The central courtyard is lovely - peaceful, atmospheric in the evenings with traditional music played and a wood fire in one of the luxurious lounge areas open to the courtyard. Cocktails are good (and not especially pricey by Marrakech standards). The pool on the roof terrace is small and shallow but is warm and has a lovely sun lounging area with an adjacent bar serving food, attentive staff, and a lovely view of the Koutoubia minaret and the mountains in the distance.
Our room (one of the standard rooms) was well furnished (if slightly in need of a refurb) with a luxurious marble bathroom and courtyard view. Rose petals on the bed and in the bathroom were a nice touch. Complimentary toiletries not great however.
Excellent buffet breakfast in the courtyard downstairs with everything I could think of (including lovely fresh fruit, freshly cooked crepes and eggs) and good strong coffee. There are three restaurants on site. We tried the Indian upstairs (absolutely excellent), and the French place (good). Food at the poolside also very nice indeed.
Didn't use the spa, which is in the basement level, but looks suitably luxurious. The fitness centre is small with four cardio machines, one weights machine and some dumbbells but wasn't busy.
Top tip: bring earplugs. The pre-dawn call to prayer is unavoidable anywhere in the Medina, and the Koutoubia Muezzin is one of the more well amplified but less melodic!
