We really enjoyed staying at the Alhambra - it was a great experience of its own. The Riad is just beautiful- the salons at the ground flour are decorated in a traditional morrocan way- the magical fountain in the middle of the courtyard gives it a very relaxing atmosphere- you can admire the ornaments, mosaic and details of every object...

We arranged a transfer from the airport via email and this all worked perfectly. As we were driving up to the riad, it was like we had stepped back in time. Hamid the owner met our taxi and then walked us to the door. We could not believe the tranquility behind the door of the frantic Medina and our first... More

The Riad is visually pleasing and was everything we expected to find with a Riad. Peace and quiet from the busy medina and a lovely place to relax after days in the Souks and exploring the City. The room we had was lovely, a good size, and although situated right next to the mosque which provided a daily alarm at... More

My wife and I visited the riad in March 2014. We looked a for a long time for an authentic riad in a central position. The riad itself was lovely - as expected, the staff friendly etc. We arranged to be collected from the airport and taken to the riad as we landed in the evening. Glad we did as... More

The Riad Dar Alhambra is a gem hidden amongst the warrens and alleyways of the heart of Marrakech. Getting to the Riad is a little bit difficult the first time, especially at night. The taxi could not enter the area of the Medina where it is located so we have a 5/10 minute walk. However be careful of people who... More

In January 2014 my wife and I stayed for 3 nights as a birthday trip.  We wanted to stay in an authentic riad in the heart of the medina to ensure that we enjoyed the full Marrakech experience. We looked long and hard before deciding on the Alhambra. Our transfer took us to within a five minute walk of the... More

We are extremely pleased that your overall experience was positive. We apologise most sincerely for the first night at another RIad - we do everything possible to avoid overbooking, unfortunately misunderstandings do occur rarely, in which case Hamid does everything possible to make this very rare inconvenience as positive as possible. There is always a member of staff in the... More

Riad Dara Alhambra is in the perfect location, only a stones throw away from the bustling souks and a few minutes walk from the must visit, Ben Yussef Madras. The building is decorated stunningly as was our room and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a centrally located Riad, with friendly staff and a premium feel.

We loved this place ! The Riad is an oasis of calm and tranquility in the craziness of the `medina. It lies in the heart of the souk - surrounded by bustling streets. `it's therefore really hard to get to - you wouldn't do it without a guide. The Riad is very unassuming on the outside - but inside is... More

The Medina is not for the feint hearted, the location is North of the inner walls of the old city. The streets are a great experience and people are mainly friendly, there are the few that hassle you on your walks, we felt like being on an epic film set like Raiders of the lost Arc. Once the doors open... More

A peaceful,relaxing oasis in a very busy,bustling city.We could not have been made to feel more welcome and staff were wonderful.It is stunning and yet simple and comfortable.Would highly recommend it if you want to experience living in the heart of Moroccan life but able to retreat when you wanted to.
