I completely recommend this beautiful riad for a visit to Marrakech. It's centrally located in the medina, clean and beautifully decorated and the staff could not be more helpful and lovely. Also the breakfasts are so delicious and mint tea is available whenever you need to put your feet up and rest after exploring the souls! Could not fault it... More

Restored in true Moroccan style with amazing attention to detail - like living in a palace! Service was excellent, attentive English and french speaking staff and price is worth every single cent you pay!

This is one of the very few places that we have returned to. Zachariah, Jemna and Yussef made us so welcome - nothing was too much trouble. Our only disappointment is that in reading other reviews it seems that they treat everyone the same!! It is a real haven from the hassle of the medina; as with may riads the... More

The owner, staff and everyone were so nice! They even helped me to post my postcard :) It was low season for Morocco when I went there so we could relax a bit and had a breakfast without time boundary.

Dar Al Kounouz is a lovely little riad right inside the Medina. It is a wonderful peaceful oasis with a rooftop terrace. They provide a great breakfast, lovely helpful service and are pretty good value too. Highly recommended!

This hotel exceeded all expectations for location, food, and service. The staff became friends and helped us celebrate a birthday with a special dinner on the roof, cake, and sparklers! It is a few hundred yards from a throbbing street in the heart of the city. An oasis indeed.

The staff at this riad went out of their way to cater to us. Youssef, the manager and nicest man in all of Marrakech, even cooked us a delicious, traditional three-course meal our last night to help us prepare for Ramadan! The owner was delightfully happy, as were all his staff. The riad is clean, modern and traditionally Moroccan with... More

Excellent food, fabulous service and beautiful buildings. Right in the centre of the city; 5 mins from the fun (although until you get your bearings the souks are quite confusing and you will probably get lost!). Would recommend the supper, which for us arriving late in the evening meant we were relaxed and then ready to start exploring the following... More

We enjoyed staying 5 days in this Riad. We were picked up by a taxi driver at the airport (Reservation needed via the Riad cost 25€). The staff is very gentle and helpfull, and was able to give us good suggestions on how to visit Marrakech. Spend a day in the Atlas mountains with the same cabdriver who took us... More

We are a family of five, with three young children (aged 3, 5 and 7), staying for one week at Easter. The Riad and staff provided the exact balance between authenticity and service, within a wonderfully renovated building. The staff were always polite and genuinely keen to assist and offer advice when requested. They were able to ensure that we... More
