What an excellent holiday at this Riad. Sited in the northern part of medina only 20+ minutes from the Jemaa El Fna square, although as Cybille pointed out, the first time will take a couple of hours. The Riad is as you see in the photographs, each room is uniquely designed & decorated, oozing with character. Cybille & Sa'ad are perfect hosts, offering plenty of advice but without pressurising you. We're very independent and found their advice helpful. As others have commented, you don't get a key and you can't lock your room door, but why would you want to? Staying here is more like staying in a family home, so we felt perfectly safe & relaxed and it was no hardship ringing the bell to get in. We ate here twice & thoroughly enjoyed the food & the craic.
There is so much to see in Marrakesh that we plan to return & stay at Dar Sbihi, but we'll go for a suite next time, just for added luxury!
We would unreservedly recommend Dar Sbihi to anyone who wants a very special holiday in Morroco.
