We have just returned from our stay at the Dar el Souk and totally loved it. We arrived in Marrakech as two novices and Madeline and the staff at the Riad made our stay a complete pleasure. The advice, guidance and suggestions of where to go provided by Madeline on our first morning was a great help. The peace and... More

My wife has wanted to go to Marrakech for some time and as a gift for her 30th birthday we decided to do a 4 day trip in Morocco in late January / early February; 2 days in Marrakech followed by 2 days in the Atlas Mountains. We wanted an authentic Moroccan experience and decided early that we wanted to... More

My cousin and i decided to take a trip together and Morocco it was. As soon as we arrived the welcome was warm and friendly and it stayed that way. From Maddy the owner, to the chefs, night watch man and the cleaners, everyone was wonderful. The rooms were clean, cultural and the ambience fantastic. The breakfasts were amazing and... More

We (mum, dad and adult daughter) stayetd at Dar el Souk for three nights to celebrate my 62 birthday. We couldn't have done better! Although our flight was delayed by several hours the hotel pre-arranged taxi was waiting for us at the airport. The Riad is in the centre of the old city (the Medina) where the street are too...

Even before we arrived in Marrakech, we had recieved helpful emails from the riad's owners helping us with our journey planning- arranging a taxi for us from the airport and a porter with a cart to take us from the taxi drop off point through the alleys to the riad. I am sure if we had been left to our... More

We chose Dar El Souk after reading lots of reviews on this site and we weren't at all disappointed with our choice for our 5-night stay in Marrakech. Situated in the heart of the Medina, just a few minutes' walk from Djemaa El-Fna, it's close enough to be handy for getting around the city, but far enough away from the... More

Since I've never stayed anywhere else in Marrakech, I can't say for sure that this is the best riad in town, but I can't see how any could be better, especially in this price range. The location is perfect (but have them send someone to pick you up at the airport or train station...which they'll do...finding it the first time... More

Getting there at night was scary, walking through the medina streets. The next morning reavealed how easy it was to get to and from the hotel. It is adjacent to the Jamaa el Fna great square and tons of restaraunts. The hotel staff and ownership was great and the accommodations were wonderful. The owner was wonderfully helpful and gracious, as... More

Booked a stay through Hip Marrakech after reading a few reviews on this site. It was my first time in Marrakech, and for anyone planning to go I would definitely recommend staying in the old town riads rather than going up to the westernised new town. The Dar el Souk had a great location - no more than 10 miutes... More
