“The best of Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2011

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.

We booked this guesthouse at the last minute, and were lucky and grateful we selected Douarskoll. Upgraded for our entire stay, Mohammed was fantastic from start to finish. We didnt have any language problems - Mohammed was fluent in English as well as French and Arabic. He also prepared a fantastic Moroccan dinner for us, and took us to the local baths for a Hamman, which is a must do in Morocco.

Planned on staying 2 days, we ended up staying 5. The staff are so helpful and friendly, they truly get you involved in the local culture. The riad was stunning and really enjoyed the roof top terrace.

We could not have chosen a better place to stay! Mohammed has been so helpful and we had interesting chats with the friendly French lady owning the hostel. The food was amazing, it was great to rest on colourful cushions on the roof tops, we just loved our rooms and to stay in a Riad. Beautiful memories of breakfast served with delicious mint tea planning the day ahead.

Douarskoll is a small but very pleasant house, located in the centre of the Marrakesh Medina. Very hard to find, but once you've checked in you'll receive Mohamed's map, which will guide you through the Medina. Mohamed, ythe kind host of Douarskoll, even will arrange a taxi to/from the airport, He also guided us from the taxi to the guesthouse. When we arrived at the guesthouse, tired and desperate for a shower, Mohamed offered us a cup of tea. During the tea, he told us all about his city. He's so enthousiastic and proud of his city!

The guesthouse itself is very pittoresque. A few small, but well-decorated rooms. Hot showers, good beds. What more do you need? Well: maybe the terrace on the roof? Perfect to end a busy day in Marrakesh or to wake up and see the sun rise above Marrakesh.

However Marrakesh itself was a bit disappointing to us (too busy, too many nagging salesmen and far too many scooters in the Medina), the stay in Douarskoll made our visit to Marrakesh really worth it!

Centrally located in the Old Medina of Marrakesh, just 7 minutes off "the Big Square", I really enjoyed my stay at Dourskoll. It is cute, intimate guesthouse with the friendliest of hosts - Mohammed. Especially in such an unfamiliar place, it was wonderful to have him answer any and all questions. He even arranged a woman to take us to a Hammam bathhouse.

The place is nothing too fancy but does what is possible on a lower budget. The rooms are tidy and embellished with Moroccan decor. The rooftop terrace is a perfect place to relax after a day in the winding, hectic streets of Marrakesh.

This place is really tucked in the maze and I had difficulty finding it. Should you stay here, which I would recommend, arrange for Mohammed to pick you up at the airport. It is worth the 12 or so euros.
