Good treat in general. Both managers of the hotel were very friendly. Looking forward to stay again at this riad next year. Although I wouldnt describe this hotel as luxurious I would say it was very beautiful and peaceful perfect for young travellers. THANK YOU VERY MUCH ABDO.

The owner has been extremely rude and borderline threatening since I arrived. He mocked me for being a "spoiled American" and cursed at me several times. I'm the only one here and frankly I feel unsafe. There are no locks on the doors and I feel unsafe leaving my belongings here. I don't know what to do at this point,... More

I have only good things to say about Riad Dar Eliane. It is a peaceful oasis of tranquillity amid the beating heart of the buzzing Medina and Souks. Beautiful decoration throughout, the bedrooms are spectacular and the bathrooms eloquently pristine. The view from the roof (on which you can sunbath or chill out with a book) is breathtaking. Easy to... More

We were greeted by the lovely manager, Abdo, who was helpful and friendly throughout our 6 night stay in the Riad. The Riad was situated right in the heart of the medina which at times was a confronting experience. The Riad though is lovely, so tranquil and a welcome respite from the craziness outside in the medina. The breakfast was... More

Considering the cleanliness of the room I didn't expect it to be as expensive as it was; it is too hot here to not have functional plumbing and there was no mention of the city tax that they charged us on the website. Pretty appalling, honestly find another raid-they are crooks and it's not worth the money or frustration.

We stayed at the riad in April. The place was simple but nice and the staff was overall helpful. However, rooms needed a little work (the photos were definitely taken by a very skillful photographer.) Apart from this the rooms were humid and everything including towels felt cold. This was partially solved on our second night when we turned on... More

The Riad Dar Eliane was my first Riad experience arriving in Morocco and it was simply a joy. This beautiful, intimate Riad is immaculately presented and every care is taken by its owner to make you feel entirely at home. As one used to frequenting the hostel side of the travel experience, I was recommended by a friend to stay... More

We book 3 rooms on this riad for our group trip to marrakech. After a delayed flight, we reached this riad at about 11 pm to be told that there is a double booking in the rooms and they have given 2 of 3 rooms away to other guests. Obviously we are not pleased. We were told that they have... More

We made our booking for this hotel several weeks before our intended visit. My husband and I were on a driving holiday incorporating Morocco and chose this romantic Riad to meet up with friends staying in the city, and spend the new year. Our choice was based on reviews that we had read and that it advertised free parking. How... More

This is a really beautiful riad in a great location for seeing the medina. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and it has a lovely roof terrace. In theory, it's a perfect place to stay. However, it was let down by a few things. The bedding & towels didn't smell very clean and the main issues were that it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The riad has been lovingly restored over many years by its English owner and offers sumptuous accommodation over two floors each of the spacious five double bedrooms has reversible air conditioning with en-suite bathrooms and their chic but authentic styles are to be savoured.
