It was out first time visiting Marrakech. I was originally apprehensive on the location as it seemed a maze but now in hindsight, I can say the opposite. We had arranged our own transfers and the stark difference between the hustle and bustle on the street into entering the Riad is truly an experience every person should experience on their... More

My husband and I spent a couple of nights here and we really liked being far from the noise of the main square. In fact, although the riad is situated within walking distance from the jeema el fna, it is very peaceful and quiet. Our room was on top floor and we could enjoy breakfast on the terrace. Breakfast was... More

I was picked up at the airport since I did the free airport pickup offered since I booked directly. Driver was waiting at the airport with the sign.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback which we would like to address. Wi-fi in the ancient medina can be a bit erratic. We have the latest router and fastest wi-fi package available in Marrakech, but due to the thick walls etc it sometimes does not reach the inside of some rooms (a problem for many medina riads)....

No hesitation in recommending this riad. Great staff, great breakfast, great location in the middle of the vibrant old medina. Beautiful comfortable rooms and decoration. A few minutes through some winding small streets from Ben Youssef Madrassa, the Photography Museum and some delicious restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Nour El Houda is a chic and unique boutique Riad in the heart of the Madina of Marrakech. It is the former home of French contemporary artist Patrick Carpentier and is now owned by a group of British friends who fell in love with the place. The Riad is interior decorated to a high standard in cream and white. It enjoys an open courtyard with a large Olive tree and a plunge pool as well as a terrace with views to the Katoubia and the Atlas Mountains. Each of the four en-suite bedrooms have their own unique character and the entire property is decorated with Patrick's beautiful artworks. The Riad is located in the centre of the Madina, close to star attractions such as Ben Youssef Mosque and Madresa (5 mins walk), the Marrakech Museum (5 mins walk) and the Photography Museum (4 mins walk). Jemaa-El-Fna is an approximate 12-15 minute walk away and a map is provided to guide you. Taxis from the airport stop at Place Moukef (Kaat Benahid), a 4 minute walk away. Famous restaurants such as Le Fondouk, Dar Tazi and Restaurant Naima are all approximately 5 minutes walk away, but in our opinion the best meal is served within Dar Nour El Houda itself with a fantastic 3-course meal cooked by one of your hosts, Asia. Together with our Manager, Noureddine, you will be treated to attentive service where every guest is looked after with the utmost care. ... more   less
