Dar Rania is a delightful, tranquil four bedroomed riad situated in Derb el Kadi - best found by walking west from Place Ben Salah along Derb Sidi Ishak - the Derbs are far too narrow to drive down!

The riad is just as beautiful as shown on its web site and is kept spotlessly clean. Although the riad has a kitchen, the expectation is that it's used by the housekeeper to prepare breakfast (and anything else you may need). The housekeeper was absolutely perfect and is a good cook should you wish her to prepare an evening meal. However, knowledge of basic French would be useful as she doesn't speak English.

Place Jemma El-fna is approx 15 minutes walk from Dar Rania and the walk is an amazing experience if you've not been to Marrakech before. You'll have to dodge mopeds, men pushing hand carts and locals trying to direct you.

The accommodation is fine for all ages but the relatively difficult access would not make it suitable for families with young children or anyone with restricted mobility.

Would definately go again.

It takes hours to find the hotel, which is not indicated anywhere. The area is bad and of no interest. The so-called "large room is not 25 square mtr. but maximum 14. Double bed is correct, but bed sheet was too small for a double bed, good for a single. Other doble bedrooms are so small, that there is hardly a passage between two beds. There are no normal wash-basin taps, but spigots used in plumbing to close water off by the toilet. Shower curtain was dirty and hot water erratic. No hammam on the roof, but a toilet with a shower head above; no solarium but two deck chairs. No "bibliotheque", but open shelves with a couple of books. Breakfast correct. "Fully equipped kitchen" has no interest to hotel guests, if they cannot use it. All in all, no value for money.

Friendly welcome, excellent cooking, clean and spacious room, beautiful décor, and completely quiet although only 10 minutes walk from the main square and right in the middle of the medina. We were so lucky to have found it.
