The front door of Riad Dama resembles the entrance to some sort of mediaeval dungeon. The newly arrived traveller might be tempted to mutter "abandon hope all ye who enter here" on arrival at the fortress-like building. Fortunately, first impressions are highly deceptive and the mediaeval dungeon look gives way to a mediaeval palace as soon as the threshold is... More

Riad Dama is located in the old Medina. The Streets or more alleys surrounding the Riad are full of workshops and little stores where the locals try to make a living and It's not the most pleasing sight to be honest. But once inside the Riad everything was forgotten. There's a nice Morrocan atmospere and the staff is simply great.... More

We didn't book anything beyond our first night when in Marrakech, the owner of our first Riad didn't have any room for us after our booked night so he kindly brought us to Riad Dama where they had space and graciously welcomed us. There were 4 of us spread across two comfortable rooms. The location was great, the little courtyard... More

A really lovely Riad about 10 minutes from the main square, walking through the bustlingly busy streets of Marrakech Souks, filled with sellers, street-vendors and traffic(!). When we stayed, we were the only guests and had free-run of the sun lounge terrace and the staff were incredibly accommodating, particularly in arranging day trips and taxis. A few extra things to...

The Riat Dama was recommended to us by British Airways as a three star authentic Riad (An four walled, courtyard hotel in the old town of Marrakech). The hotel is small but in walking distance to all that you need to do in Marrakech. The rooms are clean, albeit relatively small, but they are reasonable appointed and the bathrooms are... More

The outside of this riad does not look promising, although it is in keeping with the surrounding area; however once inside you step into a lovely traditional riad, with a pleasant courtyard and beautiful roof garden with flowers and shrubs. Our room was as expected, a traditional Moroccan experience. The staff here are the main draw - so pleasant and... More

We've just returned from Riad Dama, and I have to say, is very good. The staff is very helpful, and the location is great: 15min walf from the Square, but do not be afraid to get lost as you don't have to go through alleys.

I took my husband here for his 50th birthday. We left the peaceful countryside of France and arrived in this mad, bustling, colourful city at 9am. The hotel had arranged a taxi for us who took us right to the door, a very friendly chap who pointed out all the sights on the way. We received the most warmest of... More

this Riad is in a middle of Medina, but very quite and peaceful when you are inside. It is also very close (10-15 minutes walk) to busiest square Djemaa el Fna, Bahia Palace and Palais Dar Si Said. Room was middle size, but very clean and comfortable.All rooms are different in decoration, but with taste and in a Moroccan style.... More

We had the rooms spacious orange, and deluxe Kenza, which was an upgrade, as we had booked standard rooms.
