When the host spends almost an hour sitting down over tea and laying out the town and its many options, my wife and I were duly impressed. Our first trip to Marrakech. How kind and accommodating Omar and staff were to us. We chose Dar El Kanoun from its excellent write ups from fellow travelers. It is in a charming... More

I was totally cynical when I read the reviews for Dar El Kanoun. Can anywhere and anyone be that good? Well, all the positive comments you read about this place are true. After spending the daytime in manic Marrakech, this is the perfect retreat. So peaceful and calm, with beautiful furnishings. Omah (the owner) cannot do enough for you. Besides... More

Dar El Kanoun is a jewel of a guesthouse in Marrakech, far enough from the center of the city to be peaceful, but close enough to get there easily by taxi. Our rooms were beautiful, as are the common areas and the gardens surrounding the house. Our only disappointment was how cold the water in the pool was - even... More

Omar and geradine are the best hosts one could ever wish for. In a country where nothing runs to time Omar managed to buck this trend. Everything ran like clockwork, including airport pick up, daily taxis, restaurant bookings and trips to ait behaddou. Our room was clean ,spacious, with private balcony overlooking swimming pool and garden. Even though we ate... More

There is nobody at reception but if you phone the owner, who is very pleasant, comes running from wherevever he lives (if he is not out shopping). There is nothing to do but read ( no english tv apart from some... More

Excellent Riad away from the hustle and bustle of the center of town. Located in a quite residential area of town. Good facilities including WiFi. Excellent breakfast and very good clean service. Owner very helpful in planning and organising your day. Evening meal can be provided. Again clean fresh taste and prepared in a morrocon/french way. Good value.

Tucked away in a private tree lined estate this is a little gem. Our ever attentive host, Omar anticipated every requirement. A taxi collected us from the airport, Our room/suite was spacious and very comfortable with a private balcony overlooking the small garden. A lunch was provided at no notice on our arrival. Omar helped with advice on where to... More

If you are in Marrakech for anything more than 2 nights, you really need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the centre - Dar el Kanoun is the perfect escape. Omar and his wonderful team will do anything for you, but at the same time they don't impose themselves on you. They arranged taxis (no nonsense and... More

Before booking a place to stay in Marrakech I decided to look up a few places on the internet. I came across Dar El Kanoun on Trip Advisor and was impressed by the quality of reviews that this lovely guesthouse had. I now know why everyone has enthused about Dar El Kanoun. The house itself it beautiful, the rooms spacious,... More

They are simply the best hosts you can find in Marrakesh!! Anything you want, Omar & Géraldine will help you get it. Their kindness and hospitality have no equivalent. Food is amazing (gorgeous breakfast), rooms very comfortable and well decorated and they are well connect with local taxi drivers to get you wherever you want to go. It was a... More
