A beautiful, jewel like interior with exquisite decorative motifs. The open atrium with hanging garden and occasional songbird is delightful. The rooms are comfortable with air con and modern ensuite bathrooms. The staff are helpful and pleasant. Be aware however that because all the rooms open onto the atrium..noise travels....Apologies to any other guests who suffered my singing on the... More

This riad is perfect, recreates a genuine atmosphere. A great refuge from the chaos and noise of the souk. Very quiet and charming, the staff is very friendly and the manager helpful in everything you might need. Nice rooms in moroccoan style, great air conditioning and facilities. Breakfasts amazing. I will go back again whenever possible. Highly advised.

This place offers you a relaxing time, after walking around in the (slightly dirty) medina: The rooms and the whole Riad are decorated with great care. The roof terrace offers you some sun loungers. I found the experience to stay in a Riad really interesting: It´s a world in itself, as the thick ouside walls seperate you from the huzzle... More

I stayed in two different Riads during my 3-day stay in Marrakech (one night in Dar Zaman and two nights in Dar Eliane). I would say that Dar Eliane is one of the most beautiful interiors I've ever seen in a building. Very traditional and Moroccan and there is a lot of attention to detail - everything from the doors...

I was admittedly not prepared for the Marrakech medina environment, so the trek into the heart of the old city with its narrow streets and pedestrian/motor bike/donkey cart traffic was a big surprise. The taxi brought us as close as they could, and a local man showed us the way in for a few dirham. (In hindsight we probably should... More

I was only at the riad for one night, so perhaps I didn't get the full benefits from this beautiful ;place. The room was lovely, but too dark to read even with lights on, and the riad layout meant little noise insulation. I wasn't given a key or instructions on how to get in, and had to rely on a... More

2 of us stayed at the Riad Dar Elaine in October 2013. We had organised our own transfer from the airport who dropped us as far as his car would allow, he then arranged a man with a handcart to take our luggage and show us the way. I would highly recommend this as we would never have found the... More

Myself and my partner stayed at Riad Dar Eliane for a week in September. We arrived at around 9pm. We had given the riad our flight number and they had organised a taxi to pick us up at the airport. There was a nice man called Aziz holding a sign with our name on it as we exited the arrivals... More

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to stay at Riad Dar Eliane for our first trip to Marrakech. We were not disappointed. The riad is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and tidy and has some lovely places to sit. The staff are superb, and Slimane, after insisting on our arrival that we "make ourselves at home" spent the following... More

We have just returned from a long weekend in Marrakesh and we could not have booked a better place to stay than Dar Eliane. The Riad is beautiful and clean and only a 5 minute walk to Jemaa el-Fnaa. The staff at the Riad were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was amazing and really set... 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. The inner courtyard is surrounded by tall elegant arches, refreshed by two flowing fountains and only the whisper of water and the song of the birds will come to disturb your tranquility. ... more   less
