Such a beautiful little riad - prettiest place we stayed in in all our time in Morocco! Located right in the middle of the souks, and an easy walk from anything you might want to see in Marrakech. Every morning we would get a lovely breakfast which they tried to vary from day to day (thumbs up for homemade yoghurt... More

We were welcomed in the traditional Riad with a cup of (sweet) tea and enjoyed the dinner afterwards. We felt at home at the Riad and the hosts were very kind. the Riad is liocated in the historic center of Marrakech in the Souks and (after some time) we were even able to find it ourselves.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights, it was a fantastic place to stay. Right in the middle of the souks but very peaceful. Very pretty and authentic, with all the basics that you need. What really makes this place is the staff - everyone was so friendly and helpful. From Salah to Muna the chef, who remembered our... More

Lovely staff, very comfortable bed , lovely breakfast and great location. Only negative is the riad is hard to find initially and the shower in our room was not great. Apart from those small things it was super!

Very difficult to find at the beginning because it's in the middle of the Medina, the place turned out to be a very good choice. Very quiet and silent, the rooms were clean , comfortable and nicely furnished, the staff friendly and helpful.

The location of this riad is right in the middle of the medina. Accordingly, take them up on it when they offer to pick you up in a taxi. They also had dinner waiting for us when we got there. This place oozes Moroccan charm. The staff is wonderful. The night manager heated up our dinner and served us both... More

The first problem you will encounter with Riad Dollar des Sables is finding it. Upon booking they will write to you and offer a taxi service from the airport (€15 for 6km). The irony of course is that a taxi can't actually access the premises but one assumes their chosen driver will take you to the door. If not, expect... More

My partner and I decided on a three week vacation in Marrakesh. Maybe it's because we're a bit laid back, but the bustling souks and occasional excursions had us happy and engaged the whole time. I have staid in many many hotels. This is the first time I've ever staid in a non-chain hotel, and I don't think I'll ever... More

This riad is very difficult to find, but if you call, they will come and find you and guide you back. Once you have found the spot, you'll have no problems finding it again! The rooms are large, airy, well kept and not very numerous. After being greeted with mint tea( as usual) we were given an overview of what... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Dollar des Sables is a nice traditional guest house of 6 rooms ( 3 doubles, 2 twins and a very romantic Suite for two and can be transformed into a triple with an extra charge ). The ideal location inside the Medina ( 400 meters walk from Jema El Fnaa Square) allows you to explore the city easily. The Riad is located at the entrance of the main Souk,called "Smarinnne" and the famous Square "Jema el Fna" only at a 2 minutes walk. Upon arrival, we recommend you to book our airport pick up, especially by night , to avoid the fake guides; we can also meet you at the Square , or pick you up at the airport, for an extra charge (150 Dhirams :1or 2 guests . So don't hesitate to contact me , giving me your flight details so that I can arrange this service with my private driver.Our driver will drop you at jema el fna Square within 10 minutes, and we will be there to meet you. As soon as you get inside the House , you will be touched by the enchanting atmosphere of Riad Dollar des Sables. The whole staff is welcoming you with a smile, and a special attention : coloured candles, fresh roses petals at your feet, delicate flavor in the air and oriental music..Just to make you feel in the mood and comfortable.Passing through the corridor, you will discover the peaceful courtyard and its fountain made of traditional mosaics.On its terrace, Riad Dollar des Sables offers a relaxing and traditional Hammam ( run with wood) and massages for a very good price;First, you will be invited to share with me (Cathy) a sweet refreshing mint tea and moroccan pastries.As I'm living all year long in Marrakesh since 2006, I know quite well the city and shall be happy to share with you my experience , giving you all the useful information and good adresses to enjoy your stay .We shall give you a map to sign the main monuments to visit or restaurants around.
