“A gem in Marrakech!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2011

We stayed at Dar Silsila recently on our first visit to Marrakech and it was a wonderful home from which to explore the city. The location is ideal - just a few minutes walk from Place Jemaa el Fna and the souks, near some excellent restaurants, and yet perfectly quiet inside. The Riad is beautifully decorated and the rooms are comfortable with good beds, quality bedding and towels, and everything is perfectly clean. There are lots of clothes hangers (so unusual in a hotel) and plenty of storage space so you can unpack easily and feel at home. The roof terrace is lovely with comfortable seating and views in every direction.
We had a lovely dinner the evening we arrived (beef tangia, a Marrakech specialty) and enjoyed breakfasts with fresh orange juice and house made yogurt.
Best of all, Jean Patrick is a wonderful host, friendly and welcoming, and so helpful with information and suggestions, reservations and travel arrangements.
Thanks to Jean-Patrick and all at Dar Silsila for making our visit to Marrakech so enjoyable!

Stayed for 3 nights in this lovely raid , Jean-Patrick and his staff looked after us brilliantly, nothing is a problem to them, this raid is in a great position for sightseeing and shopping. We were greeted with mint tea and pastries on our arrival and then a lovely pre booked evening meal, breakfasts were also nice. After sightseeing we would catch the late afternoon sun on the rooftop terrace with a bottle of Jean-Patricks wine, brilliant, will certainly return.

Thanks again Jean-Patrick

Best Wishes

This hotel is fantastic. We were greeted with mint tea and cookies and our bags were carried up to our room for us. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated, including fresh roses. Jean Patrick was very helpful and even drove us to the train station! Breakfast was delicious as well. Nice oasis in the middle of the Median. Great value as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dar Silsila. Everything has already been written about the friendliness of Jean-Patrick and the staff, cleanliness of the Rias & the rooms and the fact that the Riad is very well located. Everything is within easy walking distance.

We really felt welcomed and "at home".

We had a standard room which was already perfect. In the afternoons we also spent a lot of time on the terrasses to read and relax after the buzz of the city.

Thank you Jean-Patrick & staff and we are looking forward to coming back :-)

We loved our stay here! A wonderful escape from the busy Medina. The extra comforts were not overlooked - amazing oils and soaps, gorgeous beds, fresh yogurt, great wine (and mint tea!) and the best tagine of the trip! Thank you Jean-Patrick and your lovely, gracious staff!

We had 3 nights here and could not fault it, our first night we dined at the Riad and had a lovely meal, would recommend you do this if you have a PM arrival as you need to get your bearings in daylight before you venture out.
Jean-Patrick is charming and very organised, his staff are lovely, always smiling and happy to chat, the place is run with quiet efficiency, all our taxi transfers were on time and the driver came to the Riad door for us.
Buy a good street map off the internet before you go as the ones in Marrakesh are patchy and it is so easy to get lost. Take english bank notes to exchange as the queues in Arrivals for Cash machines are grim, the bureau de change was much quicker.

We stayed at Dar Silsila for 5 nights in the beginning of February. Upon arrival at the riad, we were greeted with cookies and mint tea and a detailed explanation of sights in Marrakech. It was very helpful as it assisted us in planning our trip for the next 5 days.

We stayed at the Terrace Suite - it is a big room with its own lounge. We also made use of the terrace to enjoy the tranquility within the riad. All areas within Dar Silsila are very clean, well looked after and well decorated. All credit to the staff there.

The service we had at Dar Silsila was probably the best service we have received on our travels. The owner Jean-Patrick, through from us making the booking to the day we leave Marrakech, was very attentive and assisted us whenever he could. All other staff within Dar Silsila were so friendly and did their best to make us feel welcome and comfortable. No wonder the riad has been voted top ten for services in Africa.

The location of Dar Silsila was perfect for our stay. It is very convenient and safe to walk to the Djamma El Fna Square (5 mins), the souk (5 mins) or to the Bab (1 min) to get a taxi.

We had dinner at the hotel once. The setting of the dinning room was very romantic yet relaxed. We had a 3 course meal and it was delicious. The best food that we tasted in Marrakech!
