It was a privilege to stay in this Riad for 4 nights during the summer. The staff are excellent, the rooms are stunning and the pool area is so relaxing. It is difficult to find within the medina but the staff will help you if you get lost. I can't wait to come back.

This riad is a stunner. Sometimes find the design of riads to be too busy. The interiors of this sprawling residence are calm and muted so you can really take in how extraordinary the architecture is. The refurbishment is a real achievement. The pool area is a delight. I think it is in the best part of the medina aesthetically... More

This is a beautiful riad, with quality rooms and public spaces. Whenever we asked for help the staff worked hard to fix things for us - even going out of their way to get us phones if we got lost. The location can be a challenge to find. On arrival the staff seemed overworked though and we didn't get a... More

Loved this place, it is one of the coolest places we've ever stayed. It is beautiful, historic, peaceful and incredibly comfortable. The service was excellent, food was delicious, rooms are quiet, rooftop terrace is fantastic. This is an oasis and absolutely worth it! I cannot recommend it highly enough.

What an amazing place to stay! We have just returned after a great week together with our 3 adult children. Such a privilege to be able to live for a week in the beautiful Dar Bensouda!
