We were apprehensive initially to stay at the Riad, having only experienced the comfort and luxuries of hotels. However we were pleasantly surprised with the whole package, from the friendly and helpful staff to the uniqueness of the Riad which added authenticity to our stay in Marrakech. I most definitely recommend it and will be visiting again.

A pleasantly quiet Riad, perfect to relax in after making your way through the medina. The Riad is located in the Medina, and is 10 minutes walk away from the Square. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent, with both Nourredine and Assia being very helpful and ever available. On arrival we provided with a map with photos... More

The riad is located in the medina, a very short walk away from the main square (jma el fna). From the time of arrival to the time of departure, the service was at its finest.

Wonderful quiet place in the heart of the medina, just a few hundred meters from the Jemaa el-Fnaa. Comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts, very nice and friendly hosts. I would recommend and encourage you to stay in this riad with all my heart. Once again, visiting Morocco would definitely visit this guesthouse again! Azul!

My husband and I spent 5 days in this wonderful Riad a week ago as an anniversary treat for ourselves. We normally stay in 5 star hotels but wanted something different. We were completely reverted to the Riad style. It gave us complete privacy and tranquility added with the comfort of a 5 star hotel. The decor was stylish and... More

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
