“The perfect stay in a wonderful riad.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

Mohammed immediately made us welcome by showing us around and cooking an absolutely delicious meal for when we arrived. He gave us invaluable advice on the best things to do and see in Marrakech and made us feel perfectly at home. Throughout our stay he was always friendly and accommodating. This riad is stylishly designed and great value for money! We were in one of the two smaller rooms and quite honestly could not have asked for anything more from the room- good shower, warm at night, bedside lamp and comfy bed and pillows! The location is great- right in the middle of things but easy to find your way because its very close to one of the main souk streets- Rue Mouassine-which leads down to the main square. The view over Marrakech from the plant filled and relaxing terrace was spectacular-especially at sunset.
We had a truly amazing stay and I cannot fault the place. We will certainly be back!

If you're looking for somewhere only a few minutes from the heart of the action in Marrakech that provides a tranquil base at a very reasonable price, I'd highly recommend Douarskoll. Mohammed, your host, will meet you from the taxi from the airport (best way of finding this Riad in the maze that is the Souk). He's very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms are a good size, breakfast was reasonable. Overall I'd highly recommend it.

I traveled with two of my friends to Marrakech, and stayed with Mohamed at Douarskoll. First of all, make sure you get him to cook for you. It is endless and truly fantastic. It is in the Medina, but it's close to the Square so it's easy to find your way around after the first time through. The location is ideal. Make sure to get the Hamam as well, since it is an experience you'll won't forget soon. Honestly you can't go wrong here. - Robert.

If you're looking for a riad that doesn't break the bank, this is easily the best choice. Rooms were large, clean and comfortable, and the roof terrace on top was a fantastic place to spend an evening. It was surprisingly quiet, even the local call to prayer at 6am didn't penetrate the Riad's walls. The location can't be beaten. Mohammad - the best host I've ever encountered - cooked us a great dinner on the first night, and also took us to the local hammam, which was a great experience!

Booked at short notice but I couldn't have made a better choice. ideal location, in the middle of the souqs and a few minutes away from the main square. The roof terrace is a fantastic place to relax. Mohammed is very helpful and hospitable. The evening meal cooked at the hotel was delicious. NB I would recommend taking up the hotel,s offer to arrange a taxi from the airport, as otherwise the hotel would be difficult to find.

Our trip to Marrakesh was excelent, and amazing city and Douarskoll. This riad is the best, Mohamed was the best host we could have, he help us in a lot and share with us a lot of the culture of the place, he made our experience there best than we were expecting. He prepared a tipycal dinner for us for a small extra charge wich was the best morocco food he taste.
The location is also great because you are inside the medina close to everything and also you are in a quiet place to rest by night. If you want to enjoy the city stay here, is the best option, you will feel like home and very welcome.

Douarskoll was a wonderful way to begin our trip to Morocco. It is a charmingly decorated traditional-style Moroccan riad, located on a quiet residential alley right in the middle of the medina - just a few minutes' walk to the main square. The staff, particularly Mohammed, were very friendly and helpful. There was a great view from the rooftop terrace, which was a lovely place to relax in the evenings.
