I'll start with the bad aspect. It is a little bit far from the main square (Djemaa el Fna), about 10/15 min walking, and is impossible get a taxi from the hotel, as it is in a really narrow street. However, the Riad is amazing. Special star to the staff, always ready to help and the breakfast, which is delicious.

Our stay here was completely by chance, but boy are we glad we found this little gem. We had originally paid for and booked with another riad close to Dar Sholmes however once we arrived we were told they were over booked (very unprofessional) and were escorted to Dar Sholmes instead. At the beginning we could not understand why this... More

First of all their staffs were amazing! They were really polite and always smiling! The breakfast was delicious, everything was home made: bread, pancakes, mint tea... Also, the room was really good and clean! Just ask to a quite room cause I stayed in a room which was beside the living room and was a bit noisy. About the location,... More

We had an excellent stay at Riad Dar Sholmes, arriving late evening on our first visit to Morocco. The taxi got us as far as possible where we were met by Hassan, the manager. He lead us through the maze of alleyways to the peaceful oasis that is Dar Sholmes. Once the cases were left in the rooms which were... More

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...

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
