Marrakech is amazing and the staff at Dar Silsila made it even better. Mohammad and Reisling (sp?) specifically were great!!!!
We were picked up from the airport and taken for the short ride to the Medina. The driver was funny and gave us a quick overview. We were then met by a man who took out luggage and directed us to the Riad. While we had to walk down a dark alley and go through some turns to get to Dar Silsila, it was initmate, romantic and very comfortable. My partner and I booked a deluxe room and it was exactly that. Perfectly sized, bathroom was cute, lighting was low but only added to the atmosphere. We used the dining room one evening to relax, play cards and listen to music.
The breakfast was the perfect way to start the day. Mohammed arranged a wonderful, insightful guide to give us a half day tour of the city. Worth very penny! On our own, we booked a trip for two to a Hamman - Les Bains de Azahara. We simply found it on trip advisor and had an interesting time finding it but it was simply beyond words.
We had a blast exploring the various alley ways of Marrakech and after long days we loved coming back to Dar Silsila. We left for a desert adventure for 3 days and came back. We were upgraded to a suite and it was fabulous. We hated to leave.
I would highly recommend this Dar to all!!!!
