Dar Soukaina was lovely. Its decor was seeped in Moroccan tradition but quite simple. Very, very clean and nice breakfast served daily. The staff was attentive and helpful though English was a tad limited. Credit cards were not easily accepted so plan to pay with cash and note that there's an ATM limit of 2000 Dirham per day.
The location is wonderful - close to a gate if you need to catch a taxi to other parts of Marakesh but an easy walk to all of the highlights of the Medina.
This Riad is tricky to find and like most, down a windy and fairly dark medina alleyway. Dar Soukaina has a coded lock so that you can come and go on your own time. Definitely have a driver meet you at the airport, seriously. Staying in the medina is a must but your first moments are daunting.
We kept some belonging as the Dar while we traveled to other parts of the country and felt that our things were very safe.
I would stay at Dar Soukaina again. Perfect for the adventuresome traveler who appreciates an authentic experience but some comforts.
