We booked our holiday to Marrakech to celebrate my 40th with my 5 best friends. We had two rooms, 1 for 2 of us and the other for 3. The rooms were lovely and our whole experience was magic. Hamid with Aziza and Fatna were wonderful and catered for all our needs. Whatever we wanted, we just had to ask... More

We stayed two weeks with Hamid, Aziza and Fatna - it's more like a family home in a 1363 palace (with superb intricate workmanship) than a hotel. Yes, that is a 650 years old building! Bedrooms and bathrooms were extremely well presented in the Marrakesh style.We had half-board and all the evening meals were great Moroccan dishes, cooked to perfection,... More

Dar Alhambra is a beautiful riad, & the staff couldn't have been more welcoming. Whenever we asked for food (remember this isn't a restaurant so above & beyond the standard B&B we booked for) we were served the most delicious cuisine from Aziza & Fatima. Hamid who runs the place ensured we were collected from the airport (make sure you... More

The Riad Dar Alhambra is a beautiful building staffed with caring attentive staff that provides a calm oasis amongst the chaos of the souks. Behind the modest looking entrance door lies a tastefully decorated, traditional building with all the modern facilities you may need. The level of detail attended to in the decor is a sight to behold, with beautiful... More

We stayed 1 night in Riad Alhambra in June 2013. The owner is very nice and is always happy to help you. We came straight from the airport and if you know Marrakech a little bit it is very easy to find and well situated in the Medina. Do not let yourself be "guided" by a young person. Ask your... More

We chose to stay in this Raid due to the good reviews on this site, so we booked our holiday in Morocco for 5 days and four nights. We arrived late in the evening, with our pre booked door to door transfer dropping us off in a square as you cant drive to the front door of the Raid. The... More

We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay in Riad Dar Alhambra - the team tries very hard to please, successfully in most cases. The transfer service you booked was not through the Riad - we recommend all customers to reserve through the Riad which will bring you to the door of the Riad, without any hassle!... More

We booked this Riad online because of a last minute deal and location. The photos looked great, but for the first time a long time they fell short of the reality of this beautiful Riad. We had an airport transfer arranged via online booking, with a driver who spoke good english (as well as french, arabic, berber). Mint tea while... More

Hamid and the three Ladies look after guests well at this very confortable Riad. Once you get used to the hustle and bustle of the Souk, and the fact that you will get lost every time you venture out, then this is an experience to enjoy for those who like a little edventure. The food in the Riad is very... More
