This is, quite simply, one of the best places i have ever stayed. Everything about the Riad is the last word in luxury and comfort. The food is delicious, the beautiful coutyard is almost impossible to drag yourself away from, and the rooms are lovely. Look out for the ornate toilet rool holders and towel rails!!! Above all, the staff... More

We picked this riad, where we stayed in early Aug 08, mainly on the basis of other Trip Advisor reviews. They were fully justified. The riyad is exquisitely decorated and refurbished but still a classically beautiful old 'palace' with just six rooms/suites. We were upgraded in mid-stay to the 'royal suite', which is extravagant and extensive, although we were more... More

Knights - Chesham, Bucks. England We have just returned from a wonderful 5 days stay at this gem of a hotel. The staff and accommodation were far above our expectation. Even thought it is in the Old City the area is quiet and your transport can drop you right outside or within view of the entrance. We stayed in the... More

We have just arrived back from a four day stay in Marrakesh at the Dar Donab. We loved Marrakesh and were enchanted with this delightful Riad that was chosen based on previous TripAdvisor reviews. It is in an excellent position to visit all the main sites on foot, but also easily accessible by other means of transport, which is not... More

Well, we were staying at another hotel in Marrakech and came across Dar Donab as we were looking for a place to have lunch. It is an amazingly beautiful place. Every aspect is perfect. I'm recommending it to everyone I know!

We booked a suite and had our own private terrace. The service from the staff was wonderful, the suite was perfect and the meals great,... More

We visited the Dar Donab in April 2007 and had a magical week's stay. The hotel is a little gem hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech but within easy reach of the souks etc. Words cannot explain how delightful the hotel is - the only way to appreciate the beauty of it is to make a visit...

We stayed in Marrakech for 4 nights and during our stay this wonderful city, we found Dar Donab to be ideally located, within the Medina, but in a quiet street, yet again close enough to the many sites to be visited in the city. The pool is very nice, the many terraces are a positive touch, the rooms are of... More

The website for the Dar Donab does not do it justice. It is a truly beautiful place, with very helpful and fun staff, in a great position in the medina. The pool is a good size, there are terraces that catch the sun all day and there are plenty of bar and lounge areas. The suites are spacious with unique... More
