“not for couples or non french speaking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2008

We stayed at Dar R'mane last week.we booked with Kuoni via our local agent.As the previous reviewer explained it is entirely French speaking and so my smattering of french was a life saver.We stayed in room Nawar. Not good for lovers, partners , or couples attempting to rekindle romance as the room may as well be doorless. Anyone in the courtyard (and there were always a lot of chattering people) may as well be in the room with you as they could hear everything and we could hear everything.Also the rooms in the brochures and on the websites look lovely and claim that all rooms have heating ( we had an electric plug in heater),a reading area (not so Nawar) and air conditioning (not that either).The loo was off our bedroom with a transparent curtain so it was most embarasing what with the usual deli belly! As for romance you could just about forget being intimate what with the human traffic outside our door.Oh, and if you do stay there remember to take a plug. Can you believe that we didn't have one in the basin?
You would think and expect nice soft towels,a working sink,a few toiletries,a hairdrier and someone who can speak your language when staying in even a bed and breakfast these days. It was disapointing but didn't spoil our holiday as we loved Marrakech.
The other rooms look sumptuous in the brochures and web pictures .Perhaps we were just unlucky but our room felt more for back packers than us with our Globetrotter and Mulberry luggage.
I will say that the couple running the place were very sweet and accomodating but it would have been nice if someone had been around to wish us Bon voyage on our day of departure.Not a soul in sight. Kuoni's transfere to the airport were nowhere in sight either!

  • Liked — breakfast on the roof terrace
  • Disliked — the room,the open plan loo,the fact that nobody spoke english unless forced
  • Stayed May 2008, traveled as a couple

My mother & I stayed at this Riad on Jan 2 for 1 night. Its in the El Ksour area, which has a lot of antique & lantern shops & is a bit of a
walk to the Djemna El fna. If you stay in the Djemna el fna after 8 pm, these stores are almost closing as the streets get bare. Do not recommend for female travellers & if you do not speak French - do not stay here. No one speaks english. We had to catch a 6am flight to the airport & had a hard time explaining to the hotel staff to arrange a taxi for 4am. We managed with the help of other travellers who were French/English speaking.

We stayed in Room Foulla & had an en suite bathroom (the internet stated that its a shared bathroom - not so). The room & bathroom are large - there are 4 rooms in this riad - its clean & has character but
brush up on French.

Hi there.
Booked a package deal thru thompson holidays which included 7 nights at Riad Dar Rmane and flights from Gatwick.
Dar Rmane was a lovely 4 bedroom Riad, and luckily we had the place to ourselves most of the time, and were well looked after by Mahmou and Malika (not sure how to spell thier names.) Only problem we had was we needed to speak more french, but we got by with lots of laughter and Mon Dieu's!. Moroccan breakfasts are not to our taste but beautifully served whereever you want - the terrace is great. If you love your cereal take a box with you. Milk is not a problem and they wont mind you leaving it in the fridge. A riad is just like staying in someones home, as you have the house at your disposal - courtyard, lounge room & terrace. Very close to the souks and the square. Beware of the intitial shock of being taken thru a lot of zig zags paths thru what look like crumbling buildings, but once your behind that wooden door you are in an oasis. We thought we would need breadcrumbs to find our way back each time, but after the first time we were experts. Highly recommend your stay. Dar Rmane has a sister Riad caled D'naima. This was larger and not as personable, and staff there did speak better english if you need it. Dar Rmane was like being at home away from home.

  • Liked — It was like your home away from home
  • Disliked — That I couldn't speak french - wish I could.
