“Darhani - Amazing destination for 40th birthday girlie trip !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I would highly recommend a stay at the Darhani riad. It is well located for local shopping and great restaurants (Café arabe & Le Jardin) and not too far to the main square. It is beautifully decorated and kept in amazing condition during your stay with lovely details like rose petals scattered on your bed. What made our trip was the fantastic team servicing the riad ... nothing was too much trouble for Omar, Abdul and the 2 lovely ladies that cleaned and cooked for us at any time of the day or night ! . They were fantastically knowledgeable and arranged, transfers, massages, restaurant bookings and an awesome souk tour with Youssef. If I ever can go back to Marrakesh I would go straight back to the darhani .. enjoy your stay !.

Darharni is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The rooms are beautiful, the Riad is a quiet sanctuary, and Omar and his team are just fabulous!

I came with my best friend and we were nervous about being two girls on our own but Omar and Abdul made sure we felt safe and knew what we were doing. We were leant a Moroccan mobile with Omar and Abdul's phone numbers in, in case we got lost or into difficulties.

Cadi and the other lady who works here did not stop cleaning and cooking - ate were so so friendly to us.

I don't think you should go anywhere else if you decide to come to Marrakech. I would come here again without hesitation. Both me and my friend are already planning to come back with our boyfriends.

Thank you Darhani!

We stayed at the Darhani early Sept, for a friend's special birthday, in a group of 6 females.
Can honestly say, it was the most amazing experience, clean beautiful venue, extremely friendly & top notch service.
We were truly looked after by Omar, Abdul & the lovely ladies who produced superb food. Gorgeous bedrooms, comfy beds, & lovely decor, & great sun terrace.
Great location, & easy to get your bearings, start the explore the Medina. Well worth checking out the local Cafe Arabe & Le Jardin Restaurants, good value for money & both within 5 mins of the Darhani.
Via the Darhani, we booked a half day souk tour, & Youseff our guide, was entertaining & informative on culture & history...& also had the patience of a saint to take 6 females shopping.
Would defiately book the Darhani again!

What an absolutely amazing place. Outside the Riad pure culture, and in the centre of so much. Some superb restaurants quite near by (all recommended by Omar who really knew his stuff) or the medina not too far away. Omar and Abdul could not have done enough for us, the service is second to none. You get mobile phones to take out and about with you if you get lost, all toiletries, bathrobes and towels are there for you. Superb, a wonderful 3 night trip. Would more than highly recommend booking. Food is awesome too.

Room Tip: Depends what you want, the downstairs room we named the cave as when shutters closed its cool and da...

My companion and I stayed at Riad Darhani for four nights in July 2013. I selected the Darhani after a strong recommendation from a colleague at work who had stayed previously. Having been to Morocco many years before, I knew it was going to be a hectic break, and the promise of a hotel that was a "quiet haven" away from the hustle and bustle of the street traders was enough to lead me to book the Darhani. I expected a quiet hotel, but the hotel is actually so tranquil that the contrast between being inside and outside is rather amazing. Although the hotel doesn't have many guest rooms , its design is flowing and spacious so that you're not tripping over other guests. In fact, we rarely bumped into anyone other than at breakfast.

If you're wise enough to choose to stay at Riad Darhani, do yourself an enormous favour and eat at the hotel for at least one night. The food is cooked in-house by the hotel staff, and it is simply wonderful. Our pre-arranged arrival meal was served on the roof terrace on a single table set for two. With my companion being a vegetarian, we had ordered a selection of Moroccan salads. I thought the food might be quite nice, but the salads an assortment of different dishes and generous portions, were out of this world. That first meal remains as one of my favourite memories of the whole visit. We did laugh when we finished and sat back in our seats, quite filled with so much wonderful food, only to be told that the main course was still to come!

The accommodation is very impressive with elegant furnishings, air conditioning, lots of room, exquisite décor, and a stunning, well-equipped bathroom. The hotel has a delightful pool which is an absolute life saver if the temperature on the street is high. There are sun lounges and artfully covered chaises on the quiet roof terrace. The hotel has been thoughtfully designed to be authentic and tastefully sophisticated in style.

Praise must go to hotel manager, Omar, his night watchman Abdul, who move around in near silence. Although quiet and discreet, they are on hand constantly to help and offer advice if required. They have a unique knack of making you feel cared for and valued. In the hotel business, it is common to get good staff and less-than-good staff. If you're really lucky, you get exceptional staff, those like Omar and his small team, whose company and attentiveness you enjoy so much that it hurts to leave.

I fully recommend Riad Darhani without hesitation, and I would urge anyone planning to visit Marrakech not to miss out on such a wonderfully unique hotel experience.

Superb Riad right in the very centre of Marrakech, short walks from major attractions and with several good restaurants nearby. There are many riads in the area (we stayed in one other as well) but the service really sets Darhani apart. Omar and Abdul really go out their way to make your time spent there exceptional. After being greeted with mint tea, we were given a Moroccan phone to contact the Riad in case we were lost or needed assistance, to save using our foreign phones. There were offers to take us somewhere or give easy-to-follow instructions and routes on a map. The Riad itself was amazing, and definitely a peaceful contrast from the manic streets outside. There were comfortable places to relax in the courtyard and roof terrace. The bedroom door lock was also one of the most interesting in any of the places I've stayed!

Room Tip: We stayed in the basic room on the ground floor. Although slightly smaller than others, it was ideal...
