“fabulous and everything it says it is”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

This fabulous Riad was a calm beautiful retreat from a busy,dusty city. It is extremely clean, and comfortable, and felt like staying with good friends. Muriel and Laurent, were just as other have said, very friendly but unobtrusive, professional and gave us lots of very useful advice. Our rooms were just as they look on the web site with brilliant bathrooms and toiletries. We ate in for 2 of the 4 nights and the food was beautiful and plentiful. As for location we found it central to everything we wanted to do with about 15 minutes walk to the square and taxis from about 50 - 80 DRH for most places on the map Laurent gave us (with suggestions of things to see/do). We would definitely return if in Marrakech.

Don`t get me wrong, we loved the city! But after a day of walking in this exciting, but kind of crazy place, it is so nice to return to this beautiful, calm riad. The interior is so elegant, and yet comfortable. The owners are very friendly and service minded and will give you great advice on what to see during your visit. The only thing that was not absolutely perfect, was the location, as I can see others has mentioned. There is a 15-20 minutes walk to the main square (this walk can actually be quite exciting if your legs aren`t to tired). If you want to see the new city as well as the medina though, the location is perfect. We stayed for two nights, and it was really good!

i stayed two nights. I cannot say how much I enjoyed the ambience, food and management. My suite was authentic, romantic and extremely comfortable with everything one might wish for. Muriel and Laurent were a delight whilst at the same time extremely professional leaving one to one's own privacy when required. I would like to keep this beautiful Riad a secret but that would not be fair on its delightful owners. I therefore join in with the other strong recommendations that this place is a true find.

A great place to stay, I took my wife as a surprise birthday treat and she was not dissapointed, lovely rooms, very very clean and well maintained, amazing bathrooms and hospitality. Laurent and his wife were simply the best, engaging in conversation yet not intrusive, very helpful.
Mohammad and Khadija and all the others, did so much for us and kept us well stocked on free mint teas, water and biscuits (Khadija makes the best biscuits ever!!). Can recommend doing shisha on the rooftop at night. its about a 15 minute walk to D'Jml Fna, but its a nice walk and a way to experience moroccan life. Also recommend the Aritsan Complex near Kotoubia mosque for better quality and cheaper than Souk price goods without the need to haggle too much (although you should do so anyway!)

We have stayed there for three nights and had a wonderful time. The owners, Muriel and Laurent together with the local friends Khadilla and Mohammed created something special place in a heart of Marrakesch Medina. Beautyful ryad with a scent of oriental interior, discret but open and friendly service, all time helpful hand and food and mint tea wherever you like, Mohammed helping you to find best deals at sucks, and both Muriel and Laurent ready to share all their knowledge of the country, city and local culture, organise the tour of the south part of Marrocco and everything else. Great place for everyone, a must to vist :-)

We enjoyed our few days in the Riad Dar Diakoum despite it's situation inside the city walls of the Medina.The Medina consists of a warren of bustling medieval streets where venders sell everything imaginable. Although we would have prefered to have stayed in a more modern part of Marrakesh we cannot fault the Riad Dar Dialkoum we found it a oasis of calm after the chaos on the streets outside. The French owners made us very welcome, the room was clean,the food good. Breakfast on the terrace in the morning was very enjoyable.
