Riad Dar Sbihi is a jewel, situated in the Medina, within easy walking distance to the Souk and the Square. The inside courtyard is a delight as are the rooms, the pool and the roof terrace. We were made most welcome by the owners, Sybille and Sayed. Lovely food was prepared for us when we didn't want to eat out... More

Raid Sbihi really is the best of both worlds. Painstakingly renovated by the current owners, the décor and furnishings left us in no doubt about its Arabic origins and setting. Great plumbing, good Wi-Fi, excellent service and fabulous food met every modern need. Three of us had booked a twin room with extra bed. It was beautifully decorated, with great... More

What good things can we say about Riad Dar Sbihi that has not already been expressed by other guests? I will try! My partner Carole and I stayed for a week @ Riad Dar Sbihi from Friday 6th to 13th March 2015. We found this Riad to be an oasis of tranquillity in the bustling Medina that is Marrakech! The...

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Dar Sbihi where the owners Sybille and Saad and all their staff looked after us so well - it was home from home with lots of extras and the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. We particularly enjoyed breakfast on the roof terrace - freshly squeezed... More

A beautiful jewel of a hotel, in the heart of the Medina, just off a busy street. Our hostess Sibyl was charming and friendly and looked after our every need. Breakfast on the roof terrace, in the sunshine in February, was relaxing and delicious. We enjoyed several evening meals at the Riad - Sibyl is an excellent cook. We also... More

Our hosts, sibylle ( Belgian and speaks many languages) and her husband ( Moroccan and extremely charming and friendly) were brilliant. They didn't take over or interfere, they, along with the staff just looked after us very well. We almost felt like family. Don't compare a Riad with a 5 star hotel, and when you walk outside the Riad you... More

After walking around all day getting harassed by shop owners, "tour guides", and restaurant owners, walking inside the walls of Dar Sbihi was a transformation into another world. Going to sleep at night to a still calm, and waking up in the morning to birds chirping in the courtyard was a total transformation from the other hotels we had stayed... More

Stayed for a week and this was exactly what my wife and I wanted. A wonderful calm space not far from the beating heart of Marrakesh, the immediate area is vibrant (noisy or busy might be better words) but we liked it for that. The food is excellent and breakfast on the roof terrace as good a way to start... More

The Sbihi family is one of the oldest families in Marrakech, offering warm hospitality in their spacious and elegant riad. We felt privileged to share their beautiful home, furnished in traditional Moroccan style. Nothing was too much trouble for Sibylle and Saad, and their staff. They were friendly and quietly attentive to our needs and would converse with guests and... More
