This lovely little riad in the center of the old town (Medina) is a really good stay in Marrakesh. The staff is super friendly and will help you with anything from booking a hammam, making you dinner to offer you mint tea. The riad is located only 5-10min from the Djemaa el-Fna plaza and the staff will provide you with... More

We enjoyed our stay there. The staff although speak little english, very helpful and friendly. The riad is very pretty, central (10min walk through the souk to the square) but hidden. Although very overpriced (150dh as opposed to 65dh by petit taxi), it is advisable to ask the riad to pick you up from the airport. you will not be... More

This was our first visit to Marrakech and I'm glad we chose Riad Darna. The owner and the Moroccan staff really went the extra mile to help us - restaurant selection, sightseeing options, even buying tape on the last day to help us pack. The food at the Riad is also highly recommended - we'll never forget Valentine's dinner with... More

My partner and I stayed at Riad Darna at the end of January 2010 for two nights. We were extremely impressed with the customer service, the value for money and overall quality. The hotel organised taxi collection for us including man with wheelbarrow (150 dirhams each way) to guide us down the narrow alleyways that cars will never fit through!... More

Riad Darna is about 10 minutes walk from La Place, the focal point of Marrakech. Well, it's 10 minutes if you don't stop at any of the stalls in the Souk that line almost the entire route into the centre. It was an excellent location; far better than any of the hotels in the modern area, Gueliz. The staff at... More

Being first time in Marrakech, the riad was a blessing. Cool during the hot days, wonderful terrace views over the medina with extremely helpful and friendly staff/owners. The rooms were tastefully decorated(stayed in both blue and red room) and the food was of high quality. The riad is in a great location,down the quiet streets of the medina and in... More

This riad, found on the internet, could not be more satisfactory or better value for visiting Marrakech. In a very quiet location in the middle of the Medina, you need a guide to find it for the first time, but the riad uses a reliable former employee, now a taxi driver, who collected us from the airport and drove us...

My group of 6 spent 2 nights in Riad Darna in August, and had a fantastic experience. After arriving, the owner Jean-Francois greeted us with tea and a snack in the riad's beautiful open-air courtyard while his staff filled out the necessary paperwork and prepared our rooms. All three of our rooms were gorgeously decorated and comfortable. The only drawback... More

We have stayed there each time we visited Marrakech. Being that it's in Old Morocco, the rooms are far better than great! The special attention you get from the owners/managers for special needs is beyond expectations. The breakfast is simple and delicious. All was fresh. For sensitive stomachs (my wife's) the food was very fresh, TASTY and at a reasonable... More
