“Fantastic Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

I stayed with my husband and 6 freinds for 4 nights in this lovely Riad, Luc and his fantastic team looked after us very well nothing was too much trouble, they made our last night memorable arranging a Moroccan evening of music and belly dancing, with delicious food and wine
We made full use of the facilities, the hot tub was a great hit!
The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, with lovely robes, fluffy towels and nice touches like water and dried fruit
Breakfast was plentiful and varied , nothing to fault
The Riad is within easy walking distance of the Souks and we rather enjoyed the alleyways and local life, at no point did we feel unsafe in Marrakech,
Luc was the perfect host , ordering taxis, Recommending restaurants and best of all arranging the most amazing Hamman for us all, a must try in Marrackech!
Would highly recommend Dar Shlomes, and would happily rebook to stay there again!

This riad is a beautiful place to stay in Marrakech. The staff were very kind and helpful. They offered us tea and delicious biscuits several times. We particularly loved having our breakfast on the rooftop each morning. I highly recommend staying here.

Even before you arrive in Marrakech, the staff is preparing your stay. They help you to organize transportation from any point of the city. The smalls and busy streets to get to the Riad are misleading, but when you get there, you are welcome by the friendly staff, especially Luc and Sara. The Riad is well decorated in every detail. The rooms are fantastic! Everything you could ask for in Marrakech. The breakfast is really nice and you can take it whenever you want. The hotel provides you with a cell phone, which can be really helpful when you do not know the language. The roof has a great view over the city and has a Jacuzzi. Unfortunately, I went during winter and did not use it. But I can’t wait to go back. And if I do, I will definitely stay at dar Sholmes.

A fantastic experience staying here! The Riad itself is exquisitely decorated, attention has been paid the minutest detail, from the shawls on the terrace sunbeds to the lovely fluffy towels in the rooms. Our room was beautiful, very nice to come back to after having spent the day walking round the chaos of Marrakech. The courtyard/dining area is a treat to eat in and wonderful to relax in; although this space is quite small we felt at ease relaxing here in close proximity to other guests who were using the area. Breakfast was of a very high quality and having extra warm, fresh bread was never too much trouble for the very friendly and welcoming staff. Luc is an incredible host, he is warm, generous, informative and will go out of his way to ensure that guests have the best possible experience. Thank you!

Room Tip: They're all brilliant - although go for one on the first floor if you can.

We were absolutely thrilled with our stay here. The staff were very helpful, efficient, and friendly. Luc the owner and Sara the Manager were most charming. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with top quality toiletries. Breakfast was amazing and really set you up for the day ahead. The location couldn't have been better, only 10 minutes walk from the center in a quiet residential area. Will definitely stay again next year and can't wait.

Located in the heart of the Medina, at not even 10 minutes walking distance from Djeema el Fna square (and Souk), the Riad Dar Sholmes is a small, elegant, peaceful and cosy place where you can't wait to come back to after your busy day through Marrakesh.
Luc, Sarah and the rest of the lovely team take care of you from breakfast (in the terrasse enjoying the sun and the view over the Medina) to (excellent and exclusive) dinner or after-dinner drink and just make you feel home! The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable, the service is unbeatable and the overall harmonic and tasteful atmosphere of the riad make it very special: Definitely the perfect place to stay at in Marrakesh!
Thanks for this unique stay and, Luc, thanks for this very personal involvement in helping us making our stay unforgettable!
