First.. let me start with saying that this is one of the best place that we have stayed anywhere in the world. Purely authentic..Excellent rooms .. and above all Amazing Service.. It's a rare treat to stay at Dar Silsila..
We arrived from Casablanca without a hotel reservation. We teamed up with a friend who lives in Casablanca and were told that getting a hotel in a off season is not a problem so we did not book the hotel ahead of time. Upon arrival.. we started looking for a riad or a hotel.. We looked at few hotels and none were available. Then we found Dar Silsila through TripAdvisor and upon looking at the web site and some of the reviews.. we decided to book our stay at Dar.
Dar is conveniently located 5 minute walk to Djemma El Fena square. It was little bit strange to get to it as it's located in medina and way to Dar silsila takes you through local streets/residential areas.. Upon arrival at the Dar.. we were welcomed by Brahim and we were greeted with a some tea and cookies.. Brahim took care of us really well.. We were given 3 rooms instead of 2 for 2 nights. Rooms were amazing..Very nicely decorated .. nice comfortable beds and rooms were prepared with rose petals on the bed .. bathroom.. bathtub etc.. We immediately felt @ home and felt very relaxed.. Even though Dar is located right in the middle of hustle and bustle of Marrakesh. you will never know it. as Dar is quite and every morning we woke up to the sounds of birds..It's amazing. how quite the riad is.. Even though some of our family members were little disappointed that there was no pool but the Dar won them over pretty quickly with the rooms and service. One more thing about the rooms.. The beds are one of most comfortable beds that you will sleep on ..We had one of the best sleep anywhere on these beds..
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing the service is. Brahim in particular left a mark of Moroccan hospitality and treatment in our minds.. No matter what we needed Brahim and some of his fellow staff took care of us.. They gave an excellent breakfast in the morning with traditional Moroccan crapes, home made yogurt, honey., fresh orange juice..Coffee..Milks..breads etc.. so your day starts out excellent.. Jean-Patrick arranged couple of excursions for us and offered a good bit of help in where to go, eat , and what to do. He even helped us get a get a Riad in essaouira.. another good place to stay.. Every night..we would come back from our day long trips and we were treated with Tea & cookies.. We relaxed on the Terrace in beautiful / quite / relaxing setting. Even though the hotel does not have TV or any other electronics in the room.. to tell you the truth.. we did not miss TV or anything else for even a moment..
All in all, this was one of the best place to stay for us. The location/rooms and quietness/comfort and above all the most amazing service we ever got.. Jean-Patrick deserves a lot of kudos for creating one of the best experience you will ever have anywhere in the world.. Brahim and some of his staff will make you feel like royalty with their service.. We will be going back to Morocco next year or year after that and there is no other place to stay for us but @ Dar..
I would say that if you are looking for an amazing experience in the form of your Riad/Hotel stay in Marrakesh.. You must stay @ Dar..
