We stayed here with Simone and Meryam in April and we were over the moon with the level of care. I had arranged with Simone for a taxi pickup from Marrakech airport on arrival. I messed up with timings but she re-arranged our collection and was there waiting for us at the point where the taxis cannot travel further. A... More

We have spent a week (during August) in this cosy and wonderful Riad! Great location, it is just 5 mins walking to Jmaa el Fna. Personnel is truly welcoming! You can book all your excursions in the Riad, we have been in Zagora Desert, Ouzoud Cascades and Essaouira, all of them were worthing the visit. Definetely Excellent! Giulia and Leandro

We stayed here for 4 nights in total. The riad is small and private and conveniently located near to the Medina. Simone, the owner, had arranged everything for us to perfection. We were collected by private taxi from the airport, we had a great tour with Mehdi. Meyriam, the housekeeper cooked for us and looked after us beautifully. Relaxing and... More

Excellent value for your money. The feeling of being somewhere totally different is great. The welcome was warm, the location is surprising. This country is beautiful. Madame Simone speaks French and English, she has the French nationality. She proved to be very helpful. She knows everything and everyone in the city. Without her you are lost. She proves to be...

Located in heart of the Medina, very near the main square and other attractions, Riad Diarna is such a delightful place to stay. The bedrooms are comfortable and full of nice little touches that make you feel relaxed and welcome. The food and mint tea served in the Riad are delicious. Unfortunately, I became ill as soon as I arrived... More

I came to Riad Diarna with 7 friends on a celebratory birthday trip to Morocco. I am so glad we chose to stay at this Riad in Marrakech. It is situated close to the Jmaa el Fna and so is easy to find in the warren of streets in the medina. Simone, our host, was charming, most helpful and I... More

We arrived for one night before going up to the Atlas mountains and returned for two moe. Simone makes everything so easy. The taxi was where she said it would be, it was paid for and all we had to do was enjoy the ride. The riad is beautiful. Rooms open from a courtyard where birds fly and sing. all... More

Simone's lovely Riad just a stone's throw away from the magic of Djemaa el Fna made for a wonderful experience in Marrakech. She knows the city and knows how to treat people well. As we'd never been to Morocco before, finding Simone's Riad made for a perfect introduction. The Riad is simple yet romantic, well-designed, with a sunny terrace. It's... More

We are backpackers who went to Marrakech for a three-day business meeting and chose Riad Diarna for our housing. We so much loved the place that we stayed for a week. Situated near the central Djema-el-Fna place (5 minutes walk), you will travel the souks to find this little gem. The owner, Simone, will greet you with friendship, a smile... More
