Very glad to have stayed the hospitality and welcome at this riad was excellent. The staff and Manager Hamid very polite and accommodating. The moroccon food prepared for me in the riad was fresh and exquisite. The accommodation is of typical Moroccan design I was in awe, accommodation is clean and beautiful. I found out riad actually means guesthouse not... More

From UK a pick up service from Menara Airport was arranged by nobody turned up at the airport forcing us to take bus + taxi (with all our luggage) to Medina. Even if reservation was made in this hotel, we have been moved without notice at our arrival next door. To be avoided.

I booked two rooms here for four nights. On arrival they had only one tiny room for us (in which the only electric socket was hanging off the wall with bare wires). They promised a second room and fixing the socket in 20 minutes. Two hours later, no second room and no fixed socket. That night, they did manage to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. Beautiful room and riad. Great view from the terrasse. Hassan and the girls were very helpful and made us very welcome. On the edge of the souks it's very convenient for walking to Jamaa el Fna.

Spent 5 days here in a very reasonably priced and beautiful suite off the magnificent central courtyard where we sat and drank mint tea every afternoon after braving the madness of the souk. It really is an oasis of calm and tranquility, as soon as the door shuts behind you, you could easily forget you are in the middle of... More

Very atmosperic little riad. You can rally feel the spirit of Marrakesh when staying there. Our room was tiny but we didn't mind that. The bathroom was small with low cellings but beautifully designed in a true maroccan style. The owner and the women who look after the place are very nice and helpful. The riad is a very interesting... More

We spent 3 nights here. The Riad is very well situated for exploring the medina, souks and other sights. Dar Alhambra is clean, comfortable, pleasantly decorated and staff were friendly and helpful (although English is limited). We chose to have dinner here on our first night, food was lovely.

We were in need of a place to stay in short notice. Our friend from Switzerland who had already stayed in that Riad called the owner and booked us a room. By the time we arrived (maybe one hour later) we were welcomed very cordially. We were offered a tea, the room was ready and we were given a bottle... More

Absolute awesome, food was Devine, and overall very clean, the surprise factor is how it looks inside . The staff were very friendly and helpful. I will for sure bring the family here for a vacation. Pricing was a winner as I was only requiring a room for the night!

The riad is beautifully and sophistically decorated, and is a peaceful place to return to after a day in bustling Marrakech. The staff were wonderful (brush up on your French before you go though). The meals that I had were perfectly prepared. Coffee was pleasantly spiced. Hamid was kind enough to get me some coffee so I could continue to... More
