This review is not a complaint about the Dar Dharma's quality. As I can confidently say that Dar dharma is one of the most beautiful & cleanest riads in Marrakech. We faced only one issue there. We stayed there for 1 night and in the evening we asked the night staff (named Hicham) to get a taxi for us to... More

Wow, this small personal riad in Marrakech medina (old town) is sublime! Walking distance to everything in the medina. Use the hotel transfer service from the airport - For it is hard to find the first time. Do not expect anything but personal, familiar, small scale service. It is not a perfect, white, minimalist, or stream lined place. Furniture might... More

Dar Darma is an incredible riad with amazing interiors and an incredible location. As an interior designer I could not have been more pleased with the gorgeous design of this riad. As always, one worries about substance over style, but Dar Darma excelled here too. We booked the Blue apartment which is both spacious and beautiful. The Red apartment is... More

After seven visits to the riad, I still believe this Dar Darma has a special atmosphere. The lovely staff which remains the same since my 1st visit in 2009, gives me a sense of comfort, homecoming and loyalty.

My friend booked us in and while I've happily stayed in other mid-range Riads before and been perfectly content, I'm afraid I'm now ruined and will never be able to go back to those. The Dar Darma is beautifully decorated and fitted out, a mix of modern design and antiques populate the spacious rooms. The double baths in the bathroom... More

This is a cool and luxurious place to stay in a dazzling city. Most interesting things to do/see are very nearby And the staff is excellent! A real treat to book and start your holiday at this place. Havent tried the cooking class but i would love to come back for that and stroll around the city again.

The interiors in this stunning riad have real wow factor - I wasn't disappointed. The red and blue rooms especially are straight out of Elle decor.
