5 stars but not still enough.
Imagine, you are in Marrakech amid the Medina with all the people, odors, noise, busy streets and action. Would you believe there can exsist a place full of silence, quitness and peace; where you can close the door behind you and with one foodstep your are in a completely different world? It is possible, in Dar Alhambra.
This wonderfull Riad is very central, near the Medersa Ben Youssef and to the most sights you can walk.
It is a magical place with a private ambience. This Riad have only 6 rooms, very autenthic, tastefull and luxury interior and 3 very polite, helpfull, open minded staff.
There is a magnificent court yard and a superb terrace with a great view over Marrakech and to the skyline of the Atlas mountain. To start the day with a breakfast, or have a lunch/ dinner on the terrace or the court yard with an excellent meal, this is pure happiness.
I was 6 days in Marrakech and in this Riad. It was my base for excursions in and outside of Marrakech; Hamid, the manager of this Riad can give you a lot of valuable advices! Everytime when i came back i was cordially received with a warm and personal welcome.
This Riad was a recommendation from a friend and i recommend this charming place to everybody who appreciate this kind of guesthouses and hospitality. I was a solo traveler, but i´m sure this place is ideal also for couples, small groups and families.
When i think back and remember the time in Dar Alhambra, i still have a smile in my face :)
