We arrived quite late and were welcomed with peppermint tea.T he rooms were adequate and beds extremely comfortable. The decor was great - full of character It is set on several levels and we chose to have breakfast on the terrace which was quiet hot and exquisite. We opted for dinner at the Riad in the second night as my... More

Well we were off again on a last minute three night break as my wife had a week between positions when here charity was absorbed by NHS. So we chose Dar el Souk straight out of Booking.com. We were interested to make the mist of such a short break so a riad was our first choice. We didn't want pampered... More

Stayed here in December 2013. The Dar El Souk is a beautifully decorated riad - it feels both elaborate and homely and was a really peaceful place to relax after busy days exploring. I LOVED the way the rooms were furnished and can't believe how quiet it was inside the riad considering how close it is to the square and... More

We were looking for a small quiet riad, with a traditional feel, to use as a base to explore the city. Dar El Souk had everything we needed - and more! The riad is very well maintained, and the pictures you see on the website are a true reflection of the standard of the property. The riad is set out... More

We had a fabulous stay at Dar El Souk. The riad arranged a driver and luggage carrier to come and pick us up from the airport and drop us off at the riad( a recommended arrangement ). We were warmly welcomed by Abdullah who showed us to our room which was upgraded to a larger room at no extra cost.... More

Good email communication before our stay and a great welcome on arrival. Our room was perfect - Saghir was a wing of the 2nd floor with different areas, indoors and out - all in jewel colours. The room had heaters for the cold, and a sunny patio for the warm. The bed was huge. Breakfast was delicious, and the lunch... More

The riad is very nice, and the staff as well. Nevertheless we have a few remarks which other customers planning to stay at dar el souk should be aware of... - during the winter Marrakech is very cold during the night and the heating system of our room was not enought at all to keep a confortable temperature, so the...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments which are always appreciated and always taken under advisement. With regard to your bill. On the Booking.com confirmation it states that 10% VAT/TVA is included. On our bill it says 'Dont TVA 10%' - which means that it includes 10% Vat - it doesn't mean that the 10% has been added. This is... More
