If there are truly over 400 better places to stay in Marrakech, then it must have the highest standard of accommodation of anywhere in the world. Palais Donab was simply excellent. We stayed in the smallest room which was very spacious, a bed of the highest comfort levels, and well appointed facilities. It also had the sun til late in... More

We've had last april a 4 nightstay at Dar Donab. The place is very quiet and a real old worldcharm palace,only a few minutes from Djem al Fna. The whole location,the restaurant, the patio, with lovely pool, and terraces full of plants and trees,is a really 1001 nightdream! The room was very comfy and cozy. The breakfast high quality, and...

we had dinner here on our first night in Marrakech and it was very nice. it has a very romantic inner courtyard with a pool and the service and food were more than adequate. the prices are also pretty good. recommended, 8/10.

This was a special occasion for my mum's birthday so we wanted to stay somewhere a little bit different. We have been to Marrakesh before and we preferred to stay in a Riad rather than one of the typical hotel chains since riads are usually located in the old Medina part of Marrakesh and within walking distance of most of...

I didn't stay at this hotel but I was recommended to have a meal in the Palais Donab's restaurant as non-residents are welcome and so in I went. The outside, as seen from the street, is not that impressive but I was warmly welcomed and conducted through reception, down past the fountain and small waterfall into the opulent dining room;...

We spent four nights here in March, and frankly the property deserves a much higher ranking. The location is convenient to the souks and an easy walk to the square, but is on the quiet periphery of the medina, which also makes it easy to get a cab in order to visit other areas of Marrakech. The staff is very... More

We stayed for 3 nights in April and it wasn't enough. I plan to go back as soon as I can. What a beautiful place to stay. We made the perfect choice and wouldn't stay anywhere else. We stayed in the andulous suite., to wake up in the morning to bird song and call to prayer through the open windows... More

It is hard to find a restaurant in the Marrakech medina that is not over priced or with slow service. As a resident of Morocco and quite skeptical of most restaurants in the Medina, I found Palais Donab a pleasant surprise. Dinner by the pool on an April evening was lovely. My Mohito was perfect and the food, while not... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Palais Donab. We were passing and went in on the off chance of a table. The manager was able to find us a table, even though it looked full. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was very good and a la carte. One of us is vegetarian they were happy... More
