We have just returned from a long weekend (4 nights) stay at this wonderul riad. We were looked after magnificently by the very friendly and helpful staff who gave us the impression that our comfort and care was their only concern. The riad has beautiful local architectural features which are shown off well by the restrained but very tasteful decor.... More

An absolutely brilliant riad in Marrakesh. Located in a quiet corner, you'll be in for an amazing experience once you walk through the doors. We had a two storey 'room'. In it, two bedrooms and a lovely living room, and direct access to the pool. The rooms were nicely done, lovely bathrooms too. The staff were terrific, food was delicious.... More

This was my second visit. It is a tastefully designed riad which immediately soothes you when you enter. All the rooms (there are only 4 or 5) are unique and distinctive (one has a sunken tub, one has a private loggia, you can see them on the website). It is not overdone or fussy or that fake Moroccan style. Colours... More

My family and I stayed in the separate Douriria with our own sitting room, roof terrace and bedrooms. Every comfort has been thought out and the team that look after you at this romantic and beautifully designed riad exceeded all expectations. Situated in the busy, narrow streets of the Medina, the riad is ideal for exploring the true heart of... More

This is my first ever trip advisor review and i just wanted to let everyone know that if you are after a luxury Riad right in the centre of the Medina then look no further than Dar Housina.

We stayed here two years ago., and I've been thinking about writing this since! So here we go! In one way this was like staying amongst the pages of Elle Decoration, however the whole experience was spoiled by the attitude of the manageress who was primarily concerned with making as much money from us as possible.

Thank you for your rating giving to Dar Housnia the highest rate for sleep quality, rooms and cleanliness, and your praise of riad decoration. If you did not appreciate our location, we, personally, are proud to be in one of the oldest and most authentic part of the medina close to the souks, the brilliant Medersa and the interesting Museum...

The team of Dar Housnia made our stay to something special. The transfer from the airport to the Dar Housnia worked out perfectly, even though we come almost 40 minutes. We had such a warm welome and Bushra gave us real good informations about Marrakesh. Rashia prepared us twice such a wonderful dinner that all the restaurants around the Dar... More

In the middle of the busy old Medina, a few minutes walk from the souks and the wonderful Medersa Ben Youssouf, Dar Housnia is an oasis of quiet, where we enjoyed the sensuous atmosphere created by the aesthetically refined decor and the attentions of the staff.
