Marrakech is a stunning, loud and vibrant city and the Dar Al Kounouz is an oasis of calm and comfort in the Medina, just a few minutes walk from the bustling heart of Djemma El Fna. We were made very welcome by the owner and really enjoyed our stay, the en suite rooms are comfortable and with freshly prepared breakfasts... More

My wife and I returned to this Riad for a 4 night stay with another couple of friends last week. It can sometimes be quite daunting and disappointing to return to a favourite place. we certainly need not have worried - the Riad has lost none of it's charm, style or welcome. I cannot praise highly enough the peace, calm... More

This is my first review that isn't entirely positive. Anyway, as the others say, the staff are great, very helpful etc. But for 65 Euros per night I expected a better room - I had dirty bed sheets, freezing room temperature (despite the heater being turned to 30 degrees), and no TV. Yes the architecture is beautiful but I was... More

Mt wife and I stayed here in February 2009 and were staggered not only by the beauty of the interior of this small hotel but also by the welcome, courtesy and assistance by the hotel staff.

My husband and I stayed five nights here in July 2009. The riad is beautiful (seemingly very authentic) and wonderfully calm (except for prayer times from the nearby Koutoubia!) The staff were exceptional - we were greeted with mint tea and biscuits on arrival, given maps and a brief overview of the city. Mohammed often climbed three flights of stairs... More

We had a great relaxing stay in this Riad, couldnt fault it really! The staff left you alone to enjoy your holiday but were always on hand if you needed anything.

We stayed at Dar Al Kounouz for 3 nights with our two young sons and were really impressed with the beauty of the riad and the helpfulness of the staff. For example, they booked a car for us (at better rates than what we could find online), and ran out to get a roadmap for us at the last minute... More

I went to Marrakech with my wife on August and we stayed for a couple of nights at Dar al Kounouz. It needs some mantainance, breakfast (which is included) is pretty basic and simple and the staff were kind of grumpy and at some point rude.... I honestly do not recommed it, I guess there are better options.
