We stayed the week of 18 Jan. This was an excellent Riad, well run and immaculate. The owner is English and was most welcoming and offed us some very welcome guidance on where to go and which restaurants were good. Very well received. The day to day running of the Riad is done by her employees and I have to... 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

Fantastic location, all staff helpful and friendly. Food was excellent at Riad but overpriced.they do have wine though (rare!) which was great to enjoy with dinner and reasonable! Wifi strong in common areas but patchy in rooms which is a shame. Clean with great hot showers and lots of blankets and good heater for when it was chilly at night.... More

Very peaceful place yet only minutes walk from the madness of the main square and souks to the north and to the only proper bar in the Medina (Kosibar) to the south, where you could also pick up a taxi or red tour bus. Madi arranged everything for us including airport transfers and the highlight of our visit - a... More

A wonderful location in the medina, just minutes from the main square and also only a short walk to taxis. Beautifully decorated in Morrocan style. Staying here in November it was very cool in the evenings but the heater in our room kept us very cosy! Breakfast was good with fresh fruit, pancakes, eggs and bread etc. and they would... More

First the good things: - location (you walk within 10 minutes to the square) - interior and exterior (completely in Moroccan style) - staff is very helpful and gives you a lot of information, they are also very friendly - good communication (in e-mail,...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, we take this very seriously. Since your review, we have installed a Wi-fi extender so guests have access throughout the riad. That said, Internet connectivity and speed can present challenges here in Morocco on occasion. We are sorry to hear that you found the riad quite loud, most of our guests find the... More

For those who are yet to visit Marrakech and those who have been before, securing a well located Riad is paramount and Dar El Souk is the perfect solution. Situated not only just minutes walk from the central Jemaa Al Fna square and the Souks but also a simple walk, this beautifully appointed Riad is a delight that must be... More

Dar el Souk is centrally located to the sites of Marrakech. The staff was very helpful and made our stay very comfortable. Maddie helped us with all the logistics of arriving, departing and arranging our tours. The food was wonderful! Really enjoyed nights up on the rooftop terrace. Would highly recommend.

We were three females travelling alone but felt completely safe travelling to and from the Riad. Located just 5-10 min walk the Jemaa al Fna square and souks, we really enjoyed the daily walks to and from. We were warmly welcomed by Madi who was so helpful with practical tips for getting around town, and taken care of by Emaan... More
