“If you only ever stay in one in place in Marrakech...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

... then you MUST stay at Riad Dar Oulhoum!

Bruno and Guy have created a beautiful Riad which is a real gem and we can't recommend it highly enough.

They arranged a Tagine for us on our first night there, which was the best we had on our entire 10 day stay in Morocco! The breakfasts, which changed daily, were served on the roof terrace and the yogurt and pomegranate was inspired and that was just the first course!

Although it is hidden away in the backs streets of the Medina, it is well worth the effort to find this 'secret' riad, as it is still within easy reach of the Souks and the Main Square.

The boys could not have done more for us and we have found the only place we're ever going to stay at, when we're in Marrakech.

We arrived as guests and but left as friends.... and have promised Guy we'll improve our French by the time we return!

The mid-nineteenth century, under the reign of Sultan Hassan 1st (born Hassan ben Mohammed in 1836 in Fez and died on 7 June 1894 in Tadla), a vizier (high-ranking official, with an adviser or minister from Muslim leaders), chooses a prime location to build this beautiful Riad, near the mausoleum of Sidi Ben Slimane (one of the seven saints of Marrakech latter being the founder of Sufism in Morocco), a sign of power. The proximity of the holy mausoleum, gave him a high respect. In the late nineteenth century, before the French protectorate, this place was that of a Spanish bank and a British legation. During the restoration of the Riad, existing telephone line upon arrival in 2000 of the weapons found at the bottom of the well and an enamelled plaque written in Arabic and Spanish testament to the power of the family that gave its name to the Derb.
