Most of my comments are usually very positive as I do a whole lot of research before picking the place and I end up with a superb choice. This was the worst lodging location I selected in my whole life. It wasn't just a waste but made my stay in Marrakech NOT enjoyable whatsoever. First of all, I booked this... More

I should have read all the reviews but went with the nice photos. The place is a very nice riad but not worth the money; internet comes and goes, breakfast is terrible, the owner is very very rude, the minute we got there the first greeting was pay now. Such a shame that a nice place would get you a... More

Good location. Really nice meal at the Riad (entitled to free dinner with 4 nights stay) Amazing rooftop terrace with comfy sun loungers/sofas for relaxing. Room tidy and nicely decorated. Unfortunately, wifi not throughout Riad as stated on website. Good value for the price.

First of all: No one of the staff speaks any English. The Riad by its own is nice and stylishly decorated. The rooms are small and pretty dark. The roof terrace would have been nice, but was not usable since the staff were unwilling to put out the cushions for the loungers. Originally, we had the room on the roof,... More

Me and my fiancé stayed one night at Dar El Kheir, traveling with our almost 2 year old toddler. I must say the riad was very clean and calm, and has warm water and air-conditioning and is on walking distance to the Jemaa El Fna, but that's all positive. When we came in, we had to wait until somebody showed... More

Very nice rooms and service. Breakfast was a bit weak; typically consisted of bread, croissant or cake or pancake, orange juice and tea or coffee. No menus for food or drink though very tasty and traditional. Service was very good besides the language barrier. Riad owner recommended a few restaurants that were quite expensive so shop around before you commit... More

An oasis of calm in hectic Marrakesh. Very pretty, clean, and characterful riad. The chain smoking host Stefan is very helpful. Had an excellent time there. Had lovely meal too.
