“Totally amazeballs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

On June 15th 2013 7 females new to Marrakech stayed at this Riad for a week. The property exceeded all our expectations and as all the reviews show it is the perfect place to stay to explore this cultural city. Mostly however the devotion of the team of staff are what makes this place. Mustafa is a gem a true gentleman who caters to your very need in such a friendly and obliging way nothing is to much trouble, even us fussy crowd!!! There are aspects of Marrakech that are concerning and by no means does this reflect on this property as it is well located well kept and truly fabulous. I have no hesitation returning and would welcome the staff into my home any time as they became friends,Thank you so much for making the first taste of Morocco so good, it will not be the last.....

The riad staff were unbelievably friendly, giving us advice on anything we asked and this was one of the very best things about the whole trip. Rooms are clean and very attractive, ensure you take a good look at the ceiling in the rooms (sounds odd but you'll understand when you get there!). Relaxed atmosphere and great location.

Excellent Riad with really nice staff. I would recommend Dar Habiba to anybody who wants to spend some time in Marrakech. It was a haven of peace, very nice perfectly sized rooms, very cool court yard and beautiful roof terrace.

I am a bit delayed in writing this but hey, better late than never!
Nine of us travelled to Marrakech to celebrate my hen weekend back in March and we had the most amazing time.I must admit that when looking for places to stay I was really worried about finding the right location as we are quite a fussy group.
From the moment I made contact with Andrew here in the UK all fears were dispelled. His responses to all queries were extremely efficient and friendly.The payment process was secure and very user friendly.
When we arrived in Marrakech we were greeted by our driver and enjoyed taking in the lovely sights en route. The journey from the airport is not far and as we disembarked from the private transfer vehicle we were introduced to Mustafah...at the start of the trip he was a great host and guide...by the end of our trip he had become a friend.He is so attentative and goes beyond the call of duty to ensure guests have a wonderful stay.The welcome banquet was absolutely fantastic! It left the whole group full of jubilation.
The riad is an oasis of calm and a true example of what a traditional Moroccan riad should be. The ladies who cook and clean are all so genuinely friendly and accommodating and I was really touched to receive a parting gift to wish me luck for my what was then my forthcoming wedding.
I can't speak highly enough of this place and the staff...so if you are in doubt, please do not hesitate to go ahead and book your stay at Dar Habiba...you won't regret it.5* all round..

Six of us stayed at the Riad dar Habiba at the end of April. The three rooms we inhabited were clean and comfortable. The staff – Abdel, Mariem, and Jackie – were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble – even sandwiches ordered at the last minute. We ate on the roof terrace the first night and were treated to traditional Moroccan dishes and music. In the morning we were back on the terrace for a delicious breakfast. Abdel gave us a phone to use when we went out, and escorted us to and from our restaurant the first night as well as booking us a table at a restaurant the second night. The location of the riad was central for the square, restaurants, and souks. The Hammam was an experience we will remember for a very long time. It was a very enjoyable, relaxing, and memorable break.

My friends and I recently stayed at Dar Habiba to explore Marrakech and beyond. We had a perfect stay and Dar Habiba delivered and more in every way. We were met by a courteous young man who was holding a clear sign saying Dar Habiba. He politely waited while we got cash from the banks and was very informative about the city.
When we arrived at the edge of the medina we were met by a charming young man called Zufhair (i think!) who it turned out had lived in London. His English was perfect and his manners exemplary. He ensured all our bags were safe and sound on a basic cart. He accompanied us on the very short walk to our hotel. When we arrived we were astonished at the beauty of the courtyard and the sense of light and colour inside the riad hotel. We were taken up to the roof terra<ce and sampled a much needed cup of mint tea with little traditioal cakes. Mint tea was then served free of charge whenever we asked for it.
The room was narrow but more than large enough for our stay. our beds were adorned with roses and the towels were made into different shapes every day.
The matress quality was good and firm' how i like it. The shower room was very small but authentic and we had great showers every day. Toiletries were jasmin i think and we wanted to bring sme home but could not find them for sale anywhere.
Food at the hotel was first class in fact it was better than when we ate out at a very expensive restaurant in the new town cafe tarifa i think it was called. Would strongly recommend eating at the riad-great cook who i shy but was very willing to make us a variety of local dishes to sample.
dar habiba became a home from home as we took over the whole place and we realised we didnt need to lock things away as the staff became more like family than staff.
Love this place. The improvements i might suggest are providing a laundry bag and making it clear how much you charge for laundry as i didnt know whether this was offerred by the hotel or not. Otherwise perfect. We will certainly be back- with our partners next time.

Room Tip: rooms are simlar except kutubya which is larger and has a sofa and bigger shower room.

My friends and I stayed in Dar Habiba and had a fabulous time. It was our second trip to Morocco and our third riad. Dar Habiba outclassed the other riads completely. Why? The service level was incredible-something that we could not tell from looking at the website really. Our hosts Abdel adn Mustapher were quite amazing. They papmered to our every whim and made all their work look effortless. The team at Dar Habiba work really well together and the ladies cleaned and tidied our room for us every day and decorated our bed with fresh petals.
We loved hanging out with our mint tea on the kilim carpet pouffes, our dinners in the riad were truly fabulous. Slept really really well in spite of having lots of tea. The bedding is soft ad silky and the riad is unusual in that there is no audible call to prayer-not sure why as there is a mosque nearby.
The location of dar habiba is perfect-just 5 minutes stroll straight to the big square and 2 minutes stroll in the other direction to the taxis. It is very near museums and 1 minute from the start of the souks and yet very very peaceful.
Only downside was the hammam is quite small and ´beldi´ not like the very fancy european hammams we are used to. We did all have a wonderful massage from zahira though.
Highly recommend this place for groups of ladies, couples and families. Not a business hotel and not top top star rating but great value for money and really friendly and safe.

Room Tip: we took over the whole place and liked all of the rooms but the Koutoubia stands out as being much m...
