I think this dar (and not riad, btw) has a very good potential, unfortunately it is not followed up as it should. Like other guests I felt very uncomfortable with the attitude towards the "guides/stalkers", the receptionist actually insisted for me to give more to the guy that kind of followed me, very reassuring for an alone traveling girl. Internet... More

Initial impression was fab. very atmospheric and traditional. Rooms tastefully decorated. However, we had problems from the outset with the staff. We were 4 people, 2 of us vegetarian. We indicated on booking Vegetarian Breakfast. This was translated that we wanted additional 'Vegetarian Soup'!!!!! FOR BREAKFAST!!! ARE YOU KIDDING!!! This would have been funny had they not tried to charge... More

Our room (the black room) was really lovely. It was very unique, characterful and very clean. It is about 10 minutes walk to the square, but it is not easy to navigate. If you are worried about getting lost might not be the place for you, but getting lost is all part of being in Marrakech! You can organise collection... More

We only stayed here for one night but it seemed nice. The breakfast wasn't really very good but it was only a small riad so we didn't really expect much. A little way from djemma el fna so if you aren't willing to walk during the heat of the day, I'd suggest staying somewhere a bit closer.

Excellent stay in this riad situated well between peace and animation of the medina. No problem to find thanks to the shuttle which waited for us at the airport. Good welcome of the staff always ready for helping. Good advices of the managers for safe and nice tours for discovering the city and other places. As we book for a... More

Wouldn't recommend staying here. The location is too far from the central Medina, Maps & travel books won't help locate this alley & no obvious signs where you need them. Everywhere is a huge maze. Frustratingly ended up paying local Men/ Boys who where like snakes! As they don't all know the way, they then ask another person, he comes... More

Marrakech, with its interesting culture, remarkable monuments, great food and buzzing atmosphere, was a wonderful experience for us. Riad Arocha and its friendly staff made us feel at home and were helpful and cordial when we needed advice on things to do in town, including nightlife, and help us with our stay. The Riad was homely and furnished in beautiful... More

We arrived by bus from Agadir. From the bus station the taxi driver dropped us off in front of Kaa El Mechra entrance, the northern part of the Medina. A teenage boy came forward and said he could guide us but he couldn't find it so we walked in circles and the boy had to ask others. Eventually we ended... More

To be honest: my first impression of this riad was not good. Our Morroccan driver had to spend a long time on his mobile before he could get someone to explain where the riad is actually located. The woman who checked us did not understand English and no one in the place could show me where the riad was located... More
