My wife and I spent two nights here in December 2015, and I must say it is one of the best places we have ever stayed anywhere. The hosts are extremely welcoming, kind, and helpful, and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant experience in Marrakech. The building itself is incredibly beautiful and filled with beautiful... More

My mother and I spent an amazing week in Marrakech and the highlight of the trip was Riad Dar Oulhoum. The riad is in the area around Ben Slimane, and a very quick walk to the souks and the Jemaa. It would have been impossible to find on our own, but we arranged for a pick up at the airport... More

As many reviews mention, Bruno and Guy make the experience of being in Marrakech so much more. The Riad itself is amazing with the themed rooms - each one a bit different, also breakfast is fantastic - personally we loved the fresh pomegranate and yoghurt part! And it's in a quiet location away from the noise at night to sleep.... More

I don't think I've ever felt so at home so quickly on a holiday. Guy & Bruno are charming hosts with the most attentive unobtrusive ways. They made us feel part of the family instantaneously and we laughed for the entire 4 days at Dar Oul Houm. The house is tucked away in the north of the medina, quiet and... More

Had an outstanding stay at Riad Dar Oulhoum! The atmosphere and accommodations were top notch (bed was a little hard, but find that to be the norm when traveling). Bruno, Guy and their entire staff really put this Riad over the top in my opinion. So very helpful in every way. Bruno actually walked me around the Medina a few... More

Dar Oulhoum is a place you can genuinely feel relaxed from the moment you walk in and hear the rhythm of the fountain. This is where we started our journey in Morocco. We liked it so much that we returned after touring Morocco. The Riad has been renovated to perfection keeping its history intact. Many fine furnishings and antiques have... More

This is a gem and the hosts are even more precious.

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.
