“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

We spent two nights at Riad Dar White in November 2011. It was a fantastic experience. They made us feel very special with their attention to detail. Everything looked new and clean. Very stylishly furnished. Rooms were comfortable and calm. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Our hosts (Hisham and Kamil?) helped with making reservations and scheduling transportation whenever we needed it. Perhaps the only criticism I can think of is that there is a wood-burning fireplace in the common area on the main floor. This imparted a great campfire-like aroma to the place, and was very nice, but it was a little bit overpowering at times. I'm being nit-picky, but it would have been nice to be able to tone that down a bit.
The place really is beautiful overall, with a sort of mod-cool vibe.

In 2009, we had stayed at Jean's other riad, Dar One. Because we were SO happy with our previous stay, we just had to stay at Dar White on our return to Marrakech. I am AGAIN extremely pleased with my stay and highly recommend that everyone stay here!!

Location - extremely well located in the medina. Not too far from Djema el Fna, but not too close!

Decor - outstanding! As with Dar One, I felt I was on a second relaxing honeymoon :) Jean definitely has excellent taste when it comes to decor - in fact, one of my favourites!

Breakfast - AMAZING! Very wholesome and delish!

Jacuzzi - we had spent every night in the jacuzzi with a sheesha pipe by our side. Amazing!

Service - We were blessed to have Hicham by our side again... he is EXCELLENT and will really help you to find your way around Marrakech. Kamal - our first time with him, but nonetheless, he was also very good!! Everyone was SO kind and we felt very safe with their guidance around the city.

Overall, EVERYTHING was great! Besides home, this is one of my favourite spots in the world :)

Room Tip: All of the rooms are really good! One of the rooms is a tad bit bigger than the rest, but they are A...

We stayed at Dar white and Dar One, which is Jean's more traditional and longer running Dar.
We enjoyed our stay here - staying in the largest room of the Dar.
The styling was chic French modernism.

The rooftop terrace was great and the hot tub was nice touch. The hot tub was excellent during the hot day, was a little too cool for comfort in the cooler evenings.

Location was excellent walk back into main square
The mosque although very close and the calling to prayer mineret was viewable we did not once have a problem with the prayer time.

The service was very good and the breakfasts were good choice more so then we felt at Dar One.

Due to some issues with noise uncontrollable by Jean, we were offered extras without even having to complain.

As a Muslim man, I felt that Hisham was giving me a lot of attention, and perhaps ignoring my Caucasian partner, which she found irritating.
Especially as she's the boss ;-)

Overall the decor and the location was excellent, the experience was very good but given a choice between both his riads we would choose Dar one without question.

Please see my review of Dar One to back this up.

I would still recommend this Dar and would consider returning here.

Now Jean, please for me Dar Black !!
Your final Riad !

Located in the Kasbah area, it might seem a bit far out in the beginning but as soon as you venture out in the area and go to the Medina (a delightful 5 min walk) you will notice how perfectly located this modern and charming Riad is!!
We loved our stay there and the Staff (Meream, Kamal, Hisham and Jean) were so accommodating and helpful. Whenever we took a taxi somewhere, either Kamal or Isham would go out and talk to the taxi driver in order to set the price and see that everything was ok.
Everything was very clean and comfortable. Meream did excellent breakfasts, she's also a very sweet lady.
We recommend this Riad without hesitation. Spotless!! We will come back! Inshallah

This is a great riad in the kasbah, very close to the mosque and the Place. Brand new and ultra modern. Jean and the staff are brilliant. This is top class. Take some friends, book the whole house.

Near the Kasbah Mosque the Riad Dar White is situated, at the end of a small alley. A good basis to visit the monuments of Marrakech on foot and with the help of the very friendly staff the cultural shock is overcome easily. Inside an oasis of tranquility with design furniture (e.g. by Charles Eames, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe etc), although a bit 'cold' perhaps. On top a great terrace overviewing the mosque and a hot tub (or better cool tub) to relax. The staff helps you out with suggestions, airport transfers, reservations for restaurants etc. Yes: a new and good spot to stay.
