Can't recommend Dar Khmissa enough. If and when we get back to Marrakech this is our spot. Sadly we only spent one night here, but it was still enough time to blow us away! The owners are AMAZING. Very responsive when I emailed before our trip. Then when we got to Marrakech I called to find out how much we... More

We had heard great reviews about this Riad so had high expectations. The location is amazing and so close to the markets and anything you need. Abdou made the stay - hands down! He was personable, shared a lot about the location, his background and above and beyond to make our stay perfect. On the other hand, it felt like... More

Hello Kate, We just read your comment on trip advisor . We are saddened that the problems you had during your stay in our house. I can assure you that this is a mistake and not a fact customary . All elements of the rooms (sheets, pillowcases , towels etc) are changed after each ride. I agree that it is... More

A great find for our accommodation before and after a trek in the Atlas Mountains. Really helpful and friendly staff and the best night's sleep I've had in months (very quiet rooms despite being walking distance from the main square). I hope to visit again one day...

An absolutely stunningly designed and decorated place that is most comfortable and a perfect location. The staff is very friendly and helpful and make you feel at home. We had a beautiful triple room on the ground floor that was the most comfortable nights sleep I had in a week. It opened up into the cozy main room that has... More

Stayed at the Riad Dar Khmissa for 3 nights the last week of November. This trip was a treat to myself for my birthday and a treat indeed it was. The lovely Vincent picked me up at the airport and as others have mentioned its well worth it. Vincent pointed out some sites on the drive to the property. I... More

Agree with the previous reviews - lovely Riad. Close enough to the action of the square, but far enough away to not feel like you're in tourist city. The staff was very helpful despite our lack of French speaking skills. We had some items we were looking to ship home and they went out of the way to help us... More

Stayed here back in feburary and can't recommend it enough. Sure it is a little tricky to find but you quickly get a feel for the back alleys (that seem to sprawl across Marrakech). Vincent our host was great, helped out get our plans in shape, picked us up from the airport (well worth the fee) and made sure we... More

The level of service we experienced at this riad (courtesy of Youssef) marked it out as an excellent choice - nothing was too much trouble, and the home-cooked meal at the end of our stay was a highlight of our trip to Morocco. Rooms are comfortable, if slightly dark, and we had a slight problem with overflow from the shower,... More

Riad dar Khmissa was the nicest of the riads we stayed at in Morocco. The rooftop terrace has been refurbished and is absolutely beautiful. The dinner we had on the roof was cooked by the riad's chef and was one of the best meals we had in Marrakesh with a wonderful atmosphere, particularly as they let us bring our own... More

The people who own this Riad and the staff are all very nice and helpful. The only reason I write this is because this Riad has received such high reviews. Our room was very small and hot. So much so as to be uncomfortable and very difficult to sleep well at all. We had the smallest room. There was only... More
