As described by countless other reviewers, Dar Charkia is simply a cut above the rest. On arriving in Marrakech, to the uninitiated, it is at first a wonderfully different place complete with a new culture to understand and explore, and that's not to mention the chaos of the streets. Dar Charkia is simply a haven from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, with wonderfully kind and thoughtful staff who simply enhance the experience. The owners, Michael and Lisa are also amazingly helpful. They were able to organise a brilliant local guide (Najib) to show us around the city (worth doing early on in your stay to help you get your bearings), as well as book any tours or restaurants and even provided a guide to take you to the more distant (and hidden away) restaurants. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. I would also recommend eating in the Dar at least once, as it is a peaceful setting for an evening meal and the food is exceptional. We already miss having breakfast sat in the courtyard. I've been fortunate enough in my life to visit many fine hotels, and the overall ambience and service at Dar Charkia surpasses even the best Four Seasons hotels. It's basically a wonderful hotel with concierge level service!
