We were made so welcome at Riad Darhani by the team. Khadija cooked us a lovely meal on our first night and the welcome introduction by Abdo was really helpful and made us feel relaxed. The room was clean, tidy and a comfortable escape from the busy Souks and Medina just a street away. Omar organised us a day's cooking course with Gemma at SoukCuisine which we would totally recommend. Darhani has a several excellent places to eat nearby including Cafe Arabe (roof terrace must be booked for evening bookings), Souk Cafe and Terrasse des Epices.
Large fresh towels, and maid service each day made us feel like we were in a 5 star hotel, and Fatima our house keeper always welcomed us home with big smile and was on hand after a busy day shopping and sightseeing. The breakfast was always fresh and more than adequate, with fresh fruit salad each day, pastries and selection of other treats.
We'd also recommend a day using the pool and a extra special buffet at the Sofitel, a 20 minute walk away just for a complete contrast to the Medina. Hope to come back soon, and would recommend Darhani for a more authentic taste of Marrakech.
