Everything about our stay was perfect - our host was wonderful and gave great guidance the first day by showing us around the neighborhood so we felt acquainted with the area and did not get lost (as often!) on our own. He recommended some fabulous restaurants, and Dar Oulhoum was so nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. One highlight were our... More

This is a superb Riad in a great location run professionally but in a friendly way by the extremely personable owner, Bruno. A family of four, we chose the Riad for our short stay in Marrakech on the basis of the reviews already posted on TripAdvisor. These reviews were spot on and it’s hard to imagine we could have made... More

My friend and I stayed here for three nights at the start of March and absolutely loved it. Bruno provided an exceptional level of service that I don't think either of us has experienced anywhere else. He really cared that we enjoyed our time in Marrakech, helping us with restaurant recommendations and onward travel plans. We felt really well looked... More

We had a very short break in Marrakech and found this place via TripAdvisor. We did not want the hotel option and looked for something which was more on the traditional side, allowing us to immerse ourselves a bit more into the life and culture of the city. Dar Oulhoum was the perfect choice. We had pre-arranged transport from the... More

My 23 year old son and I spent 3 nights at Dar Oulhoum (2 nights upon arrival in Morocco and decided to come back for the final night to the same riad after touring the mountains and desert). The owners and staff were exceptionally welcoming. The rooms are clean, comfortable and perfectly decorated. It doesn't require much imagination to see... More

I took my family to Morocco for a Christmas break, and we spent three days in Marrakech at Riad Dar Oulhoum. The Riad is a veritable three room palace. Each and every detail is exquisite, the breakfast on the terrace wonderful and the owners, Guy and Bruno, are the perfect hosts. One of our favorite hotels we have ever stayed... More

There is no more accommodating riad in Marrakech than Raid Dar Oulhoum. The riad is beautiful, it is the home of Guy and Bruno and they have not only decorated it with exquisite art and furnishings, but also with thoughtful conveniences: The roof has several levels with lounges, sofas, tables and a glassed in fireplace/breakfast room. The rooms are large... More

We spent 3 nights in this riad and everything was perfect. The place is small, few rooms, and so it is very quite. The internal garden is lovely, the room nice and cosy and everything is well furnished. The riad is in a very good location, close to the suq and just few minutes from the main attractions. The breakfast... More

It was a clean Riad, friendly staff, and the location was close to the main square but also close to some good restaurants and sites. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was good. The wifi is good and so is the heat/AC in the room.

Reading the other reviews before booking Dar Oulhoum, I thought it all sounded too good to be true. But it is true! Bruno and Guy are the ultimate hosts- from the moment I arrived on Christmas Eve, when they welcomed me with a glass of white wine on their terrace, to helping sort out my ongoing transport several days later-...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Oulhoum tells me a story ... The mid-nineteenth century, under the reign of Sultan Hassan 1st (born Hassan ben Mohammed in 1836 in Fez and died on 7 June 1894 in Tadla), a vizier (high-ranking official, with an adviser or minister from Muslim leaders), chooses a prime location to build this beautiful Riad, near the mausoleum of Sidi Ben Slimane (one of the seven saints of Marrakech latter being the founder of Sufism in Morocco), a sign of power. The proximity of the holy mausoleum, gave him a high respect. In the late nineteenth century, before the French protectorate, this place was that of a Spanish bank and a British legation. During the restoration of the Riad, existing telephone line upon arrival in 2000 of the weapons found at the bottom of the well and an enamelled plaque written in Arabic and Spanish testament to the power of the family that gave its name to the Derb.
