This has to be the best holiday.. The staff were fantastic and friendly they couldnt do enough to help. The riad is 5 minutes from the souks. It's clean and new.
I can't recommend this enough for location and style.

We recently returned from a family holiday at Riad Dar White having booked out the four rooms.The staff were excellent both in the food that was prepared and their hospitality however you didn't feel your privacy was effected.The riad itself is in a great location allowing you to walk to most places but transport can be arranged through Jean Peres, the owner, who was always available to give advice and help.Excellent value and service, not to be missed if you are going to Marrakech

It is fairly new, has only 4 double rooms. We were 8 of us, so booked the whole hotel. Excellent value for money..breakfast is served with love, laundry charges reasonable, staff eager to help and advise, but give you your privacy as well. Though situated in a narrow lane, requiring you to walk around 200 metres from the car parking area, it is strategically located within walking distance from all the souks.
A jacuzzi on the terrace is the perfect place to unwind after a long day bargaining in the souks!

Room Tip: There are only 4 rooms, guests with arthritis can take the single ground level room. The 3 upper lev...

A lovely riad in an excellent position, with an utterly amazing team who exemplify everything that is wonderful about Moroccan hospitality. We dined there on the roof twice - dinner was so good the first time that we begged them to cook exactly the same for us again. And it was way better than the perfectly good food we ate in high-end restaurants

I stayed here with colleagues for work. Having been to Marrakech before and staying at a Riad I wasn't sure what to expect. Dar White was fantastic - it is really well located and is quiet and comfortable. Service was very good and the common area is warm and friendly and felt like I was at home. Food was great and I will definitely be back! As it only has a few rooms I would also recommend it as somewhere to try and book out with a group of friends - you would still have the privacy of your own room but could enjoy the common areas and meet up to socialise.

Room Tip: Think about getting a group of people together and rent all the rooms in the Riad to have an amazing...

My husband and I spent 3 nights of our honeymoon in Marrakech at the Riad Dar White. John Peres, the owner, was very helpful in accommodating us. His staff -- Hicham, Kamal and Meriam were amazing and treated us like royalty. The bedrooms are small, yet very clean and tranquil. The common areas are very comfortable, modern and quiet -- a nice reprieve from the craziness of the medina. We enjoyed the fireplace and the roof top terrace, which provides a great view of the city. The homemade breakfasts were delicious and served when ever we wanted. We walked everywhere -- it's a great location. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

My husband and I stayed at Riad Dar White in late December. This was our first time in Marrakech and our first experience staying at a riad, so we didn't know what to expect. Dar White exceeded our expectations and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a luxurious, quiet, safe haven in the bustling Medina of Marrakech.

A week or so before arriving we contacted the Riad to request a driver to/from the airport. This was a great thing because it would have been very challenging finding the place on day 1 with our luggage. Upon arrival, Jean and Hisham greeted us. Right off the bat we felt welcome and excited for our stay. Throughout our stay the staff was very accommodating and friendly. Hisham and Kamal gave us wonderful recommendations to restaurants/shopping/hammans. Each day we had a packed itinerary (thanks to their great insights).

The breakfast at the riad was consistently delicious; each day with a slight variation. Plenty of different kinds of breads, yogurt, tasty fig and other exotic jams/spreads. Their mint tea is very tasty too. The Riad is in a great location close to many of the attractions.

We hope to travel back to Marrakech someday, and hope to stay at Riad Dar White the next time!
Jean, Hisham, Kamal - thanks for your hospitality, you helped make our trip truly special :)
