We really enjoyed our stay in Riad Dar Vima! Soufiane was wonderful and went out of his way to be helpful. Najet was just fabulous and couldn't do more to accommodate our needs with great breakfast, tea and pastries, clean spaces. Although the rooms we stayed in could be at times a bit dark, they were immaculate, clean, comfortable and... More

We loved our week long stay at this house. Najat the housekeeper was very pleasant with a smile on her face always. She cooked us great breakfasts everyday and also excelled herself in making some great dinners while we were there. I would suggest you try and eat in at least once during your visit here.You had to walk a... More

Oh, Dar Vima, what an oasis. Just wonderful. Marie, the French owner was so amazingly helpful (even with my limited French and her limited English). She phoned the airline for me to ask about my flight (ash cloud chaos) and recomfirmed it all for me. I had 'Ambre's double bedroom' on the ground floor, it wasn't massive but it was... More

Once you have find it, you will find a real little palace behind the doors of this Riad. You are between the locals, but a taxi is a 5 minute walk from the Riad and you will come everywere near the medina for 2 euro's.

This was the first Riad I ever stayed in and I loved everything about it, especially the decor and the incredible quietude. It felt like staying at a friend´s summer house, which we had almost to ourselves as it was off-season. The breakfast was yummy as well, and eventhough Marie does not speak English well, we had a nice connection... More

Dar Vima is a gem. This lovingly restored old riad offers peace and quiet right in the middle of Marrakech's hectic old centre. Hostess Marie has great suggestions for restaurants, bars, shops and places to see. She has reliable contacts for taxi service, car rental and guided tours. Marie helped us steer clear of some tourist traps which sounded nice... More

Dar Vima is a beautifully renovated Moroccan house in the heart of the old city. The inkeeper, Marie, is an superlatively experienced and considerate hostess, and her staff is first-rate. Her assistance went very far in helping us acclimate to Morocco and have an unforgettable vacation. I think any riad in the heart of the medina, the old city, is... More

We were a group of 5 friends looking for a typical Riad. We were not disappointed. Riad Dar Vima is good value for money. The rooms are very nicely decorated and very very clean ! The welcome by owner Marie and her 2 Moroccan employees is warm and personalised. At night, we also enjoyed several evening drinks on the rooftop... More

First stop in Morocco - what would it be like? Small alleys, quite dark at the end and there was the little door into Dar Vima! A lovely courtyard with orange trees and a little pond. Three rooms on the ground floor next to the small kitchen (how could they actually manage to cook such lovely meals there?). Upstairs more... More
