“Nice riad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We enjoyed this riad, particularly their library/common room area. It was such a peaceful, beautiful place to read a book or catch up on emails. The riad was pretty hard to find since we didn't see any signs directing us to it but luckily ended up stumbling upon it by accident. Book the airport transfer and save yourself the hassle.

Our room was nice but we did not like the bathroom set up. The bathroom and the bedroom are in the same room-there is no door separating the bathroom area from the main room, just a wall that juts out to divide the room. There was also no door on the shower. So if you're showering or on the toilet, the other person could partially see you. It also made the room a little damp after taking showers. Maybe this isn't an issue for everyone, but I personally like some privacy when I'm in the bathroom.

Breakfast was very good. We didn't try dinner as you have to book 24 hours in advance. Riad was clean and staff helpful and you can be at the Djemma el Fna in around 10 minutes. The wifi was very good!

Our family stayed 3 nights at the Dar Ihssane riad. The riad is cosy and has a nice lounge and a sun terrace on the roof. The free WiFI worked well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and the coffee was excellent. We booked a nice 2 day tour via the riad. The tour started early and the staff arranged then an early breakfast for us. The location in the Medina is very good. It is very close to a nice hamman. We had no problem to find the riad.
We strongly recommend the Dar Ihssane riad and we will return.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Dar Ihssane. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The place itself was well kept, clean and cosy. The location would have been hard to find without help at first, but it was otherwise in a very convenient location relative to the surrounding attractions. We will definitely return to this riad the next time we are in Marrakech.

A group of 4 spanish girsl have been here for four days in february and we are very happy with this riad. Location, breakfast very good. We had a dinner there, it was excelent and generous. very friendly and helpful staff. We found the riad a little worn than what you see in the photos. Anyway this is just a small comment as the VFM is really good.

Room Tip: the VFM is really good. The location is exelent.

We had an excellent stay at Dar Ihssane, very nice staff and very clean and fresh rooms and free wi-fi. It had a "home" feeling to it, so when there was bad weather we where just comfortable sticking around on the terasse for a day just chilling. Its location is just a stonepitch from Djemaa el-Fna.
Its a little hard to find when you first arrive, i could have wished for more signs, but there is allways someone willing to show the way for a few dirhams/ Ali-Baba and micha

The Dar Ihssane is a nice Riad. The staff is really friendly - breakfast is great - WiFi is free - prices are good for the offered value. Also the terasse was very much appreciated by us as well as the nicely decorated public rooms in the Riad.
The location is nice (close to pretty much everything in the Medina).

We can definately recommend this place!
