I spent 15 days in Morocco travelling all around. And this Riad is by far the BEST I found. It's more than just an hotel... it's like jumping into the local culture and history. You sleep in a real Kasbah without loosing any of the comforts you expect. The rooms, the terrace, the restaurant, the halls..... they all are A... More

I recently returned from Morocco and had the pleasure of visiting Ouarzazate and staying at the Dar Kamar for two nights. The service, food and beauty of the Dar are amazing. I would highly recommend this Riad to any traveller. The rooftop terrace offers a stunning view of the city along with a great place to relax. My whole experience... More

Dar Kamar is a warm, welcoming place. The African-style decorations, furniture and crackling fireplace create a homely vibe. The rooms are clean and comfortable. When the weather is good, breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace, where you can gaze over Ouarzazate's roofs to to the palm trees and mountains beyond. Certainly a memorable way to start your day. My... More

My favorite Riad in Morocco, thanks to my taxi driver, I found this beautiful Riad, where I got the warmest welcome and the best service as I was someone special and not just another guest.It is charming and cosy and at the same time modern in a nice way.

We arrived from far away in the desert, that evening of the last day of the year 2012, it was cold out there and we were delighted of finding the right gate of the old city quite easily, then parked the 4x4 and walked our way quickly, through the narrow medina, and felt intrigued and curious, right away, about what...

I stayed in Dar Kamar for only one night in May, and happend to be the only guest for that night! It is a beautifully decorated hotel, with lovely details, like the sinks carved out of local stone with fossils in it. The place is spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. The staff was extremely helpfull and considerate, finding... More

I have stayed in this Riad for the past 2 years in the lead up to the Marathon Des Sables and have found Mohamed very welcoming, the rooms are clean and colourful and the plumbing works, not like other hotels I have to stay at after the event where the water runs out of the door faster than down the...

I do not know what the other places are like in Ouarzazate, but I liked this place a lot. The decor was really unique, staff (Mohammed) was very welcoming and warm, and if given the choice I would have stayed here more than just one night. The room was good size, though not so large as to be "cold". The... More

This was a charming riad/hotel. It has been restored but the original building is very old. Mohammed was very nice and accommodating and allowed us to sleep on the ground floor room and also served our breakfast in the lounge so that my mom would not have to go upstairs. The room was small, but the larger one available was... More

Arriving in Ouarzazate by car, we had difficulty finding Dar Kamar. Entirely our fault - we had not obtained directions in advance. For your reference, the riad is quite central: down the hill from Hotel Mercure and Hotel Ibis, in the old kasbah on the other side of the main road. Moral of the story: look it up in advance,...
