“...lucky lucky lucky we r so lucky!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We stayed in Dar Malak for two nights just by chance. We booked a room in Riad Hannah and they have no rooms anymore, so they sent us to this amazing Riad, that was just down the alley.

The place is beautiful, in the heart of Marrakesh old city. We paied just 54 euros per two nights and the room was so big and beautifull! we never saw something like this for 27 euros per night! There was a big and clean bathroom, with scented towels, AirCo. Very nice Terrace.

We didn't taste the cusine or the breakfast because for this last we had to go to Riad Hannah.

The owner and the attendant are very nice and helpful

We could not have enjoyed our stay more. Dar Malak is situated in the Labyrinth that is the Medina, so we strongly advise a transfer organized by Eric, who is the perfect host. This is the REAL thing, with only 4 guest rooms the service is very personal indeed. The rooftop terrace is a tranquil antidote to the madness that is the souks and the main square, all within easy strolling distance. Eric organized an accompanied trip to the Mountains for us, Saturday is the best day to visit Asni (en-route) for the Market.

You could stay in one of the huge international 'all-inclusive' hotels in the New Town, the sort you can find in any city in any country.... Or you could experience the authenticity of staying in a beautifully restored riad in the heart of the Medina which hasn't changed much in centuries.

We stayed at Dar Malak for a week in October and would definitely stay there again. Eric is a perfect host and nothing is too much trouble for him or his staff. Our room off the courtyard was comfy and peaceful. The riad is perfectly situated and is a wonderful retreat following the hustle and bustle of the city. Eric took us on a trip to the Atlas Mountains which was wonderful and a real insight into the life of the berber people. Thanks Eric.

Dar Malak is really a highlight of our trip to Morocco,at first when we arrived there we are a bit worry because we have to walk through a small alley,but once arrived there and meet Eric and his staff which is super friendly to us we forgot our worries.
Dar Malak located right in a heart of Marrakech old medina,short walk about 10 minutes to Jemaa El Fna
We stay in second floor room and its abig room and a very suitable ambience for taking a rest and enjoy life...
Dar Malak is really a recommended place to stay at Marrakech,where you can really enjoy life
dont forget to book return transfer when you book,its alot easier and also not expensive

Dar Malak was the nicest riad we stayed at during our Morocco trip. It's a beautifully decorated riad with a very peaceful patio. Already the welcome tea ceremony was so special - couldn't find any better peanut sweets than the ones we enjoyed here!
The riad has only four very spacious rooms. Breakfast was very nice and fresh and was served whenever we wanted - between 7 and 11 am :) The French owner Eric was always helpful and had some great restaurant recommendations for us.
Also, location is great - still in the Medina and only 10 min walk from the Jamaa el Fna, but not as busy as in that area...

A beautiful and quiet place, perfectly located in the middle of the Medina. We enjoyed staying here very much - the rooms are spacious and very tastefully designed. Make sure that you also try the delicious dinner! We could stay for only 2 nights unfortunately, and we'd love to come back!
