Dar Malak is a very beautiful Riad with spacious rooms and great facilities. The staff are warm, extremely helpful, thoughtful and kind. The food is delicious and the Riad is located right in the Medina, a few minutes walk from the main square.

The kindness of Eric and his staff; you will have all the information and help that you need to enjoy the city. Very comfortable rooms, and nice common spaces to have a mint tea or a drink. Transfer available from and to the airport and train station (Euros 20 and 15). Availability of Moroccan home-made food and good wines. Enjoy... More

My friends and I couldn't have chosen a better place for our Marrakech experience. Dar Malak is a beautiful and peaceful riad located in the heart of the Medina, just a couple of steps from the chaos of the souks and Jaama El Fna square. The courtyard and rooftop terrace offer absolute tranquillity and sunshine, ideal location for relaxing sipping... More

The place is beautiful, in the heart of Marrakesh old city. We paied just 54 euros per two nights and the room... More

We could not have enjoyed our stay more. Dar Malak is situated in the Labyrinth that is the Medina, so we strongly advise a transfer organized by Eric, who is the perfect host. This is the REAL thing, with only 4 guest rooms the service is very personal indeed. The rooftop terrace is a tranquil antidote to the madness that... More

We stayed at Dar Malak for a week in October and would definitely stay there again. Eric is a perfect host and nothing is too much trouble for him or his staff. Our room off the courtyard was comfy and peaceful. The riad is perfectly situated and is a wonderful retreat following the hustle and bustle of the city. Eric... More

Dar Malak was the nicest riad we stayed at during our Morocco trip. It's a beautifully decorated riad with a very peaceful patio. Already the welcome tea ceremony was so special - couldn't find any better peanut sweets than the ones we enjoyed here! The riad has only four very spacious rooms. Breakfast was very nice and fresh and was... More
