Wonderful little germ! We found out about this house while reading a new interiors book "Marrakesh Inside" and we were not disappointed. A real art lovers grand house owned by Gloria, our dedicated Maitresse de Maison. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her team. Private dinner with beautiful silverware and china, cultural sightseeings and chauffeur arranged during our short visit. It made us feel like valuable guests during all our stay! Merci Madame Gloria and see you soon!

In March some friends and I decided to stay in two places, including Dar El Mudal for three nights. The taste and decoration of the riad are stunning and unusual, with rare furniture and most paintings by the late Norman Hutchinson. The owner, Gloria Mudaliar Hutchinson is a lady of great elegance, beauty and charm. She, and her staff,Khadija and Reda, made our stay unforgettable. The rooms are superbly appointed and comfortable. We had dinner twice: beautiful silver and crockery, a delicious chicken curry, the real thing with at least ten spices, the best I ever had. And the next day tasty Moroccan dishes. Breakfast was delicious with almost everything you could hope for. Mrs. Gloria told us about all the newcultural and culinary spots, since she knows Marrakesh so well. My friends and I had the most enjoyable experience. Best room: upstairs, first one on the left.

We spent three nights in this lovely home in the Medina. We were hosted by Abdullah and Hadijah. They were very attentive and provided everything we requested. The house is located perhaps 100 yds into the Medina and wasn't too difficult to locate. We were promptly greeted at arrival at the Medina gate and made our way to the house with no problem. The house had the traditional Moroccan structure with the open central area utilized as a living room seating area which was guarded by a beautiful Siamese cat. Overall, it is ornately styled, comfortably appointed and the walls are filled with amazing paintings of the owner and her family. It did have a bit of the feel of being in a museum, but we loved it. Breakfasts were provided on our schedule and the meal was quite satisfying. The bedroom and bathroom were airy, clean and had all the necessities. We very much enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I have just returned from a three night stay at the Dar el Mudal and cannot praise it high enough. It is run by the owner and most charming host, Gloria Mudalier, wife of the famous painter Norman Douglas Hutchinson, and her small team of incredibly helpful staff. The bedrooms are clean, tidy and fully fitted and the lounge / dining area is a joy to behold, displaying a multitude of her husbands exquisite and entertaining paintings. Worth a visit in their own right. We enjoyed a continental breakfast each day, and a wonderful home cooked evening meal. An elegant but homely atmosphere that entices you to return.

This Riad is owned by Elderly East Indian lady, who loved her house passionatly..sometimes forget that she has rented a place to someone and got money for that..this place will be suitable for someone over the age of 75 years where you have ristrctions on everything, you might be stooped and minded like a little kid immedately if youleave a light turnned on behind you, if you out your purse on the couches, leave the door closed, etc etc....it was very funny expeience..I am a frequent traveller generally say in 4.5 star or 5 star hotels first time in Morocco read few idiotic reviews and got excited with the ratings and got in ...but felt like 6 year old kid being minded every minute by strict parents....only 2 servents there and one of them quit when we were there...what a mess one poor little girl "Khadiza" has to clean up, prepare breakfast, manage all the guest and rooms....list goes on and on...ohhhh, please don't be fooled by the "Mint Tea experience" in the previous comments by others ask the prices & cover charges before you go in the rooms, ask all the rooms and read between lines...When we went to Fes...what a wonderful experience we had and we regretted that we stayed here...also a piece of advice the new town is just walking distance loaded with modren beautiful hotels, takes 10 min walk to any medina or any place you want to be in...

Dear Mr Uvraj Gill Singh, I am so so sorry you had such a bad experience in my home and I wish that I could make things up to you and your wife but by now you may be home in Canada or in your lovely palace in India. If you should ever come to Marrakech again I would be happy to give you a free night. My staff are two lovely people and may I say that you have misunderstood that 'one of them quit' - Abdellah did not 'quit' but was absent due to family problems and is now back at work. I wish you and your wife all the best.

We stayed at Gloria's with another couple a few weeks ago. When we first entered Gloria's home and met Gloria, I knew there's just something about Gloria, she is so beautiful, elegant just has an amazing vibe all around! Her house is beautiful and u can tell how in love her and her husband were... I wish i had more than to sit down with her and hear about her stories. Every corner was covered by a painting of her from her husband. It was just amazing!!!!!! And her staff were so helpful and extremely friendly, we especially loved Abdullah. We always looked forward to wake up and see his smiling face. We did feel bad a few nights when we came home late he was waiting for us to come back and opened the door for us. Thank you so much!!!! Gloria, I hope we will come back and see you soon and i promise you that i will make some chinese food for you:)

We're so glad we stayed here. Firstly, the location is excellent and ideal for a taste of everything you would expect from Marrakech. It's safe, the people are welcoming and you are in the middle of the old city. The property itself is beautiful. Gloria, the owner, is one of life's old school characters with a real life story to tell and a personality that sadly you just don't find in the world anymore these days. Her staff are excellent. Friendly, kind, thoughtful and a credit to her home and their country. As a visitor you feel genuinely welcome. I can't really say anymore other than Dar el Mudal is highly recommended on many levels and a choice you will not regret. I have been back a day and missing Morocco already. Hopefully we will be back soon!

We had the pleasure to spend six magical days at Gloria's fabulous Riad. From the pick-up at the airport over everyday pleasantries to checking out again, everything was organised like a charm. The staff was very attentive and welcoming. We were very pleasantly surprised by the fact that the Riad was equal parts a fairy tale come true, as well as an inspiring Art Gallery stimulating our minds and senses. The interior design looks as if it's straight out of AD - both humble and exquisite at the same time, as was Gloria herself. If we ever find ourselves in Marrakech again, it will certainly be at Gloria's retreat. Best wishes and kindest regards, Priscille and Steffen Frankfurt am Main, Germany
