Beautiful riad, very friendly staf, but very noisy, lack of privicy because of this. Our bedroom was next to dinighall, only seperated by a single glas door.

Not even a day back from being in Morocco and I'm happy to say that our first riad experience at Dar Nabila was amazing. We loved the decor, the attentive service and overall warmth and hospitality from the staff. Great location and such a sweet retreat after spending amazing and sometimes stressful days in the souks. If you're looking for a cozy and quiet place in the Medina, this is it.

Room Tip: pick the largest room upstairs, it's the most stylish.

Charming, quiet and wonderfully relaxed Riad. Great location that gives you the opportunity to experience real life in the city. Easy to walk through the medina to the square or over to the new town for a more modern experience. The hostess was extremely accommodating - don't be put off by the crowds in the streets and Market outside - they are friendly. Watch out for kid that offers to direct you to the riad...he may want more money than you should give him!

We had booked a room here through laterooms.com, however, when we got there the lady in charge told us they had booked us at another riad. We were quite tired and overwhelmed as we got there at night and were a bit lost getting there, however, Khalila offered us some mint tea while we waited for a transfer that would take us to the other riad. She was very nice and accompanied us all the way, but we felt she sort of "dropped us off" to be forgotten at the other riad. From what we could see of the Riad Dar Nabila it was in an easy to find location compared to other riads and it seemed clean and nicely decorated, with a "homey" feeling. Can't really say anything else about it as they didn't really take care of us.

Spent 4 nights at this charming Riad. Kharlila is a perfect host, so helpful and kind and cooks a beautiful tagine. We ate here two nights as we enjoyed the food so much. Day excursions can be booked through here meaning a shuttle will collect yo at the door!
Highly recommended as the peace inside helps you to escape the craziness outside. Cosy rooms onto a traditional courtyard, and African music playing regularly from the seating area.
Don't miss this well priced gem in the heart of Marrakech.

Cozy, authentic, pleasant, clean, etc...... Hidden away in the Medina this little Riad offered a peaceful oasis from the bustle of the city, genuine hospitality, good food and a posh modern Moroccan room.

Can't recommend Dar Nabila highly enough! Khalila, the manageress made our Marrakesh experience fantastic. She was always there to bring more mint tea, arrange taxis, Hammam or trips to the dessert. The Riad is well-placed near the edge of the Medina, meaning you can easily walk to the main square, but also that it's easy for a taxi to find if you don't fancy the walk back at night (the small streets can be confusing). We got a cheap deal on the rooms through Easyjet/Hotelrooms.com - 5 nights for £150 for two of us, so can't comment on price if you book direct. Close to Bab (Gate) Mousoufa and the Grand Taxi rank meant we had no problems finding it. On the first night we just asked a local lad outside, who guided us to the door for 10 cents! The rooms are clean and the bath was enormous! Lovely! We had breakfast in the courtyard every day (bread, honey, cheese, pancakes...) and spent a couple of afternoons soaking up winter sun on the roof terrace. Khalila does a lovely tagine and couscous, though most nights we ate at Djemma Al Fna to watch the entertainment. I plan to go back soon :)

Room Tip: The 'suite' has the most enormous terracotta bath - amazing. All rooms are cool and quiet.
