On one hand, we loved the hotel for its tasteful decor and central location, on the other hand, there're plenty of room for improvement.
To start with what we like about the Dar:
(1) Central location, (2) stylish decor, (3) Nice rooftop terrace
And what we're not so sure:
(1) No window in the room meaning that we have to keep the door open to let air in. Result: lack of privacy given that our room was on the 1st floor facing the main courtyard with reception area right downstairs. I believe the situation might be better with other rooms not facing the main courtyard.
(2) Arriving late in the evening at Marrakesh, we arranged private transportation from the station with the hotel for 100 Dirham one-way (while taxi costs about 15-30 Dirham depending on your negotiation skill) for added peace of mind. We ended up waiting outside the station at night for half an hour despite calling the hotel up a few times. Every time the answer was that the driver would arrive in a few minutes (without any apologies). When the driver arrived, he even made up excuses that he had been there before our arrival time and that he couldn't see us. But the fact is that we were there all the time and apparently he was just being late (there weren't that many people so impossible to miss especially since he's supposed to be holding our name plate). It might just be the problem of the driver BUT, advice: there're plenty of taxis right outside the station, so NO NEED to arrange transportation service with the hotel.
