“Time to reset and rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

We simply think it is a perfect place to rest and regain energy for the next day our work life.

Well located and very quiet (something not easy to combine in Morocco), a step away from it all, and have a really a good team and a better owner.

simply...5 stars place.

Stayed September 2011, traveled as a couple

My 2 friends and I stayed in Dar Malak for 3 nights in April 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room on the 1st floor overlooking the central courtyard was spacious and beautifully decorated. Dar Malak is conveniently located in the Medina, within easy walking distance of many restaurants and attractions.

The owner Eric was extremely helpful throughout our stay, recommending restaurants and booking a trip to a fabulous hammam also (Les Bains de Sindibad). One of the highlights of our stay was observing Latifah (one of the staff) preparing a dinner of cous cous for some guests arriving on our last night. She was most gracious in allowing us to invade her kitchen!

I would highly recommend Dar Malak to those looking for a beautiful, quiet place to stay in Marrakech!

So friendly and welcoming, beautiful spacious rooms, strewn with rose petals for our arrival. Nothing was too much trouble, the breakfasts with freshly squeezed orange juice and pancakes were delicious,and it really was an oasis of calm just outside the kasbah.

Dar Malak is an oasis of peace and tranquility in the middle of the old medina of Marrakech. Situated at the end of a quiet backstreet, the warm staff and extra large rooms made me feel immediately at home. Breakfast was served either in my room or on the rooftop terrace. Fresh mint tea and Moroccan treats were served day at the end of the day, and was a great way to relax after the heat and chaos of the medina. Further, Eric, the owner of this Riad was extremely helpful with organizing trips, recommending restaurants and sights, and in general just making me feel welcome!

We had a lovely stay over four nights in the gorgeous Orient Suite at Dar Malak. The staff were fabulous and Eric was extremely helpful and informative in providing recommendations, bookings and advice. We opted to visit the local hammam with two members of Erics staff (segregated) and it was an amazing experience which I would thoroughly recommend.
Location is perfect - it's about 5 mins walk from the souks, 3 mins walk from the nearest taxi spot, 10 mins walk to the main square and it felt very safe.

The best thing about Dar Malak was the peace and tranquility. It was a little oasis and a cool beer in the evening after a day in the heat was just lovely. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: Get the airport transfer!!

A really peaceful place and a delightful and knowledgeable owner. Splendid rooms, meals, staff, advice, trips and terrace. And thank you Eric for organising the cake and 'happy birthday' after a meal in one of the cities most classy restaurants - most enjoyable once my wife stopped cringing with embarrassment. I hope to visit again.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Eric the manager was the perfect host, keen to ensure that everyone was happy and providing help with getting around. The riad was really beautiful, traditional Morrocan style and very peaceful and quiet. I slept very well in my comfortable room off the central courtyard and enjoyed my breakfast on the roof terrrace. It was perfectly located in the heart of the old town. Difficult to find the first time without a guide as it is located at the end of a winding alleyway off one of the streets of the old town. Felt quite safe though as well lit and lined with flats for ordinary families.
