“A slice of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This thoughtfully decorated riad in the heart of the medina, but away from the hustle and bustle is the perfect place to stay while visiting Marrakech. Sarah and Jassin are wonderful hosts, both know the ins and outs of the medina and where to go to do the best shopping, and, lucky for us they are more than welcoming of babies - our 7 month old was hugely entertained, a welcome break for Mum and Dad!

Dar K, located in the heart of historical Marrakech, was the first place that we stayed in Morocco, and it was the best possible welcome! A beautiful Riad, contemporary, elegant and simple, yet always with Moroccan character. Above all, the owners and staff were particularly welcoming, friendly and helpful, making us feel entirely at home!

Riad Dar-K is a beautiful riad with an excellent location and service. We spent one week during Christmas there. Our room was very comfortably and beautifully furnished and we had a huge bathroom. Breakfast and dinner was delicious and served on the terrace or in the cosy lounge downstairs. The riad has a tranquil atmosphere. Sarah and her staff took care of us very well, giving a lot of helpful advices where to go and what to do, and even taking us to some areas to show us around. They were always there to make sure that our stay would become a pleasant experience.

Stayed in this riad on my first ever trip to Morocco. Absolutely love this place. Tastefully restored and furnished. Riad Dar-K is chic, cozy, and clean.

Even though it is located in great location inside the Medina, finding this Riad is not as simple because the address is not in Google Map. But no worry, Sarah (the owner) and her staffs are just a phone call away. Sarah is very informative and helpful. She showed and taught us how to navigate within the Medina. She is also quite a traveller herself and she's been to Indonesia! It is great to find someone who's been to your country and gives rave reviews :)

Stayed in the double room on the first floor. Room is spacious with nice temperature, comfortable bed and very peaceful. It also comes with fresh breakfast that you can enjoy at the tastefully done rooftop or at the courtyard's sitting room...two of my favourite area inside the riad. I definitely recommend Riad Dar-K!

Lovely Riad in the centre of the Medina. The breakfast is delicious and the view amazing. Sarah is the owner of the RIAD and knows everything about style and interior. I you want to have a romantic and lovely stay in Marrakech book this RIAD.

My family and I stayed three nights in Dar-K in October and were absolutely exited.
Even our 10 year old daughter liked the quiet and safe place within the busy medina.
The room (Douria Suite) and the house are filled with wonderful pieces of furniture.
The look is clean, simple and very stylish.
We enjoyed tasty extended french breakfast on the rooftop terrace, where we also relaxed with a bottle of blush wine.
The location is perfect: Hidden in a small lane, but not far from a big lane leading to the museums, souks, Medersa Ben Youssef, etc.
When we needed help to find our way to a restaurant (and back) in the dark, friendly Yassine guided us there.
I cannot find anything wrong or not perfect at Dar-K!
Okay, the fact that the room was not lockable was strange at first sight.
But due to the fact that we felt absolutely safe, this wasn’t a big problem.
We would uttlerly recommend to stay at Dar-K and we will surely stay at Dar-K when in Marrakech again.

We have just spent 4 nights at the wonderful Riad Dar-K. The gorgeous Sarah is the owner and a gracious host. We were welcomed with mint tea and an assortment of nuts, then taken for a walk through the souk to the main square. All of Sarah's recommendations were spot on, including several very good local restaurants. We pre-booked our first dinner in the Riad after reading several reviews and it was sensational! - a perfect first evening served in the alcove.
The room was spacious and luxurious. We felt like royalty.
The staff were so friendly and helpful - the girls during the day and the boys in the evening. It was like staying with friends and they were always there to check whether we needed anything.
The included breakfast on the rooftop is a highlight - a fresh way to start the day.
The location is great. You are right next to the souk and only a 10 minute walk to the square but it is a peaceful oasis back at the Riad.
Don't stay anywhere else!! This is the only place you will need for you Marrakech adventure! Wish we staying for longer. Thanks Sarah and team!
