“Unforgettable holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I stayed 5 nights and I cannot praise this riad enough. Muriel and Laurent are excellent hosts and they are really helpful with everything. I have received loads of information prior to my stay and also during my time in Marrakesh. Both of them equipped me with valuable hints and tips for sightseeing, shopping, taxis, restaurants. All the staff is very pleasant and they look after you. In my opinion Riad dar Dialkoum is everything you can wish for to have a relaxing and hassle free holiday. It is clean, well maintained, quiet, yet not far from the major sights, you can relax in one of the lounges or on the roof terrace and there is hardly anything you ask and it cannot be sorted. You will get excellent value for your money with breakfast and free tea and coffee included and you can have traditional home cooked moroccan dishes for reasonable prices, so you do not even have to go and look for a restaurant. I would highly recommend to stay here if you decide to visit Marrakesh.

Room Tip: Room Hannah and the other room opposite on the first floor of the second patio is quiet if you like...

We enjoyed our stay enormously. The Riad is quiet, small and comfortable. The staff are very good, very kind and very friendly. Both the proprietors are full of good, sensible and balanced information that make what for some a daunting, first time visit seem secure, informed and fun.

The cooking is good - the local wine fine - and there are no problems at all about bringing your own good in from the street markets. I would have no hesitation in really recommending this Riad to you - and I hope you enjoy yourselves as much as we did!

We spent 4 nights in this lovely welcoming riad. Located in the medina the free airport pickup meant no stress in trying to find the property. Stepping through the front door into the beautiful courtyard was heavenly. Laurent and Muriel and all the staff made us instantly feel relaxed, nothing was too much trouble. We were Marrakech rookies so Laurent's introduction to the city, suggested itineraries and tips were invaluable. The roof terrace was the perfect place for breakfast which, of course, was excellent. We had dinner at the riad, all freshly cooked on site, it was much nicer than an expensive restaurant we tried one night of our stay. We can see why this riad keeps winning a TA Travellers Choice award, it is special.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spotlessly clean and well located. We stayed in the Aicha room which is described...

BUT! This riad is deserves one. Not only is the riad beautiful and kept spotlessly clean, the management of Muriel and Laurent is more than excellent, they go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable and trouble free. If you are looking for a quality riad on the edge of Medina, look no further, you have found it.

We stayed here for my partners 40th birthday, we had the most lovely time. Friendly hosts Laurent and Muriel were always happy to help and very welcoming. Our room was exceptionally clean and traditionally decorated, gorgeous and very romantic. Situated in the heart of Marrakesh it is perfectly placed, enjoy the hustle busstle of Marrakesh and then relax at the riad behind its large wooden door with some delicious mint tea :-)

We spent 4 days at this wonderful Riad in the heart of the old Medina and what a stay it was! Muriel and Laurent and their staff could not have made us more welcome. Our room was beautifully furnished with lovely Moroccan artefacts and had a stunning bathroom. The central courtyard and plunge pool were so attractive and tastefully decorated and the traditional Moroccan dinner we had on our first night was both delicious and memorable. Breakfasts were excellent and served both in the courtyard and on request on the sunlit upper terrace with the sounds of the Medina ringing in our ears. The location was central with many sights easily reached on foot and Laurent and Muriel provided helpful local expert knowledge; we thank them both for making our time in Marrakesh so memorable and unique.

We visited Riad Dar Dialkoum looking for a bit of winter sun...we got so much more!
I must admit we were a little overwhelmed, with it being our first trip to Morocco, but Laurent and Muriel took the time to introduce us to the area and give us lots of hints and tips. Amina and the staff were absolutely fantastic, always happy to look after us. Their cooking is second to none and we often chose to eat in the Riad rather than go out - proper traditional food. Our little room was perfect, very clean with fresh fruit and toiletries. We had the most wonderful 10 days and Dar Dialkoum is the only place I would stay in Marrakech. We hope to return one day.
