“Nice riad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

Went there with my family in November 2010. It is not the most beautiful riad in marrakech but it's pretty nice and above all QUIET.

The staff is welcoming and the rooms are comfy. Price is also good.

The breakfast is excellent, but in Morocco it is absolutely normal!

Just got back from great long weekend in Marrakech and this Riad in the Kasbah area really added to the great experience.
Staff were friendly and always willing to help without holding their hand out like a lot of the locals even while they were organising a family wedding reception that was held at Raid during our stay.
Breakfast was nice and if you enjoy food and want to reat yourself book an evening meal at the Sultana just 10 minutes wallk way.

Room Tip: Pay the little expra for the superior room or the Suite they are worth it.

We spent one night at this beautiful Marrakech Riad with the bedrooms facing inwards towards the lemon trees in the central courtyard - an oasis of calm and coolness in the frenetic last night of Ramadan in Morocco.

Room Tip: One room we looked at had what seemed a rather small double bed.

This is a beautiful example of a restored authentic Riad. The rooms are positioned around the central and majestic courtyard, shaded by fragrant orange trees. All the rooms are individually designed in traditional Moroccan colours and textiles, and ours had the most incredible stone fireplace. The Riad is conveniently close enough to Djamaa El Fna to walk to, but far enough away to escape the noise. It's also far enough away so that you can lose yourself for an hour in the narrow lanes of the city, whether intentional or not!

Stayed for four nights, very welcoming and accomodating. You do need to be prepared to walk for 15 -20 minutes up to the main centre of the Medina. Though through small thoroughfares that are part of the Medina anyway we did not feel in the slightest unsafe.
Good breakfast that were available at anytime to suit our needs and not theirs, even were able to sample the Moroccan wine, which we would recommend anyone to try.

This is a lovely Riad with friendly staff, BUT it is a long 25 minute walk to the main part of Marrakech through a very poor district with virtually no other tourists. This walk did not feel safe at night.

The inner courtyard of the Riad was covered with plastic sheeting which really impacted on the ambience of the central courtyard and roof terrace. The pool mentioned on their website is very small, in the reception area and purely for show.

As an alternative, I would strongly recommend staying at one of the large tourist hotels just outside the city walls and get the "Riad experience" by booking a traditional dinner in one of the many Riads near the centre. I think most travellors would welcome a dip in a swimming pool and chilling out round a hotel bar after a day in the dust and hussle of Marrakech. Price wise the large hotels are often cheaper than this Riad, and closer to most of the tourist attractions.

Apologies to the manager and staff at Riad Daria but we would really have appreciated such information prior to planning our trip. I hope this helps others in planning their trip to Marrakech.

This was the first stop during on our Morocco holiday. We had a huge room - a suite in fact - that was reasonably priced given how well-appointed and handsome it was. It included its own little courtyard with a wrought-iron trellis / cupola through which you could stargaze of an evening.

The building is very handsome indeed - quite plain from the outside but beautifully designed and laid out around a central courtyard containing two gorgeous mature orange trees. Fantastically authentic North African style!

The hotel staff were helpful, informative, well-trained and friendly. The food, although not necessarily cheap, was simply excellent and the entertainment during the 'Royal Couscous' evening was great fun.

The location is a bit surprising - very much in the Medina, surrounded by a maze of tiny streets and some quite run-down areas. This is, however, Marrakech, not Chelsea.
