Peaceful place, romantic, charming. Excelent breakfast, staff simpathy. Perfect guidance from the manager, Said, always nice and helpful. It's great ending a day crossing the busy Medina streets in such a nice retreat. We fully recomend it.

We booked the two room suite (Dourria) and if you are a family, this is the PERFECT accomodations for you. Pluses: Said was absolutely amazing. He is so friendly, welcoming and a lovely host. He played with my son, chatted with my husband, and absolutely made the entire experience wonderful. He was just so genuine, which is rare to be... More

We were picked up from the airport by a taxi (booked through the hotel). The hotelmanager Said picked us up on a square in the medina and accompanied us to the riad. The riad has only five rooms, so it's no big hotel. We especially liked the rooftop, where we spent quite some time relaxing. Lovely small pool, nice plants,... More

Dar Akal is a comfortable and clean riad. All the staff are helpful and cheerful. Siad is a great host and will arrange everything you need. The roof terrace is particularly nice with a small plunge pool and the great breakfasts on the roof terrace are a real treat. Don't miss out on booking an evening meal at the riad... More

This is a nice little Riad perfectly located in the Medina and it has a very nice architecture. The Hotel Manager does everything to make you feel comfortable in a very smart way (Picking you up from the Taxi in the middle of the night, Serving tea, breakfast, organizes Tours for you, suggesting restaurants, ...). Couldn't be better!

After spending time in the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert we came to Dar Akal hoping for comfort and calm. We were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed by Said and had some Moroccan mint tea while he used maps to orientate us and give us some information about Marrakech. Throughout our stay Said could not have been more pleasant,... More

We booked through the Dar Akal website because they offered a taxi and collection service as we were arriving to Marrakech late evening. They were very efficient, had a taxidriver at the exit point in airport and collected us for the short walk from taxi to hotel. They provided a late meal on arrival with wine. The staff and manager... More

We had a great time at Dar Akal and Said was a wonderful host who's clear explanation of how to get around the souks was invaluable. Our room, Douiria was brilliant and the rooftop terrace was a great place to relax after a day in busy Marrakech. Than you very much Said and team - we really felt well looked... More

Look no further. We LOVED our stay at the Dar Akal. The riad was beautiful and well situated in the medina. The rooms were "Moroccan Elegant" and the breakfasts (and dinners upon request) were wonderful -- beautifully served and delicious. Saiid, the hotel manager, did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and hassle free. He is a treasure. The... More
