We stayed here for 1 week in August as a last minute holiday destination. The Riad is located through a series of alleys in the old town area. Its a great location, very quiet after a long hot day in the busy areas of Marrakech. Hassan and his staff were great and helped us a lot and made our stay... More

From the moment I was met in the medina by Hafid and guided through the maze of alleys in the old medina, to meeting Hassan at the Dar's entrance, I knew that I had selected the right location for my first stay in Morocco. Dar Sholmes was just what I was looking for to help create an authentic experience. In... More

My family stayed here in June 2014 and I can’t praise the riad, or the staff, highly enough. The manager, Hassan, went out of his way to be accommodating. He was welcoming, friendly, helpful and patient and dealt impeccably with our large and diverse group. Hassan’s staff were also exceptionally good. They worked hard to ensure that we all had... More

We had an excellent stay at Dar Sholmes - from the moment we arrived Hassan (the manager) gave us lots of useful information, and couldn't do enough to help us - for example ringing about 5 different hotels to ask about using their swimming pool! The other staff were great also, particularly the younger guy who was always on hand... More

We booked this Riad on the basis of reviews in Trip Adviser but some of these seem to be through rose coloured glasses. There has been a change of management and as a result the Riad had lost all details of our booking and we were not met at the airport as promised. We took a taxi which dropped us... More

We stayed at this riad at the end of our Marocco trip. The Dar Sholmes was easily the best Riad we stayed in Marocco. The staff was very friendly, open and helpfull. The rooms were clean and tidy. There is a mobile phone in the room! I find this a very cool idea. Food was marvelous. We recommended this place... More

Wonderful place, beautiful people. The staff at Dar Sholmes helped make out trip to Marrakech a delight. Within the chaos and excitement of this amazing city the staff at Dar Sholmes did everything they could to make us feel relaxed and very special. They had the balance between friendliness and professional care perfectly right. If you are considering visiting Marrakech... More

We have just returned reluctantly from Marrakech, where we stayed at Dar Sholmes for 4 nights. This is a little Jewel, pretty, comfortable, quiet, clean, with wonderful staff, well located for trips out into the hustle and bustle of the Medina to the new town or to the mountains. 6 pretty and comfortable individually decorated rooms on two floors around...

I could write a million reasons you should stay at Riad Dar Sholmes when you visit Marrakech, but the ones that stick out the most are the genuine and sincere kindness and care of the entire staff, the willingness to give so much of their personal time, and the obvious pride they have for the establishment which reflects through the...

We stayed here for a couple of nights when we arrived in Morocco. Luc was extemely helpful arranging transfers and with information. We ate in the Riad on the first night which, while not cheap, was easily the best meal we had the whole week and very much worth it. Breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely. Location quiet but...
