From the moment we walked through the lovely entrance we knew we had chosen well. Dar Sholmes was the Moroccan experience we had hoped for in every way. The walk through the neighborhood and alleys after being picked up at the airport and driven as far as we could be was exactly as exciting as we had read about and... More

Our four day weekend in Marrakesh was made all the more enjoyable by knowing that each evening we were returning to this comfortable Bed & Breakfast. The room was a good size and very cosy, with a comfortable bed and a clean and large bathroom. The breakfasts were freshly-made and very filling - something different everyday from traditional French to... More

Dar Sholmes really deserves all the positive reviews and hype. The service from Luc and his fantastic team is first class, where they do everything to make you feel at home. Our room was spotless, tastefully decorated and so comfortable whilst the riad itself is beautiful and a calming retreat from the bustling Medina. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, served... More

...but Dar Sholmes was a surprising disappointment. Sohail was really friendly, and Luc seemed like a nice guy, but he seemed to have so little time for us (and was clearly the only one running the show) that we were left feeling kind of neglected. A simple question about booking a coach ticket was left unanswered until 11pm the night... More

Made a last minute plan to visit Marakkech, and based on Tripadvisor reviews + availability, I chose Dar Sholmes for my stay. Have to say I wasn’t disappointed. Luc arranged a pickup for me from the airport, and I was dropped off near the entrance of the road to the riad, where Sara received me. Felt a li'l bit strange... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this Riad! The staff was very very kind and helpful with all our problems! Thanks to them we had two nice visits to the cascades of Ouzoud and the Ourika Valley!

The owner, Luc, told us to feel at home, and we did. His friendly staff made us feel welcome, and we really enjoyed our stay. Marrakech is a world apart from anything we knew, and we came to love it.
