“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

The owner, Luc, told us to feel at home, and we did. His friendly staff made us feel welcome, and we really enjoyed our stay. Marrakech is a world apart from anything we knew, and we came to love it.
The riad is close enough to the 'big square' (nobody calls it by its official name, at least not to tourists) to allow for an easy walk, and if you're tired of the noise, just ask any taxi to drop you off at the hospital (the entrance is close to the riad). Brilliant location, beautiful night sky, great view from the rooftop terrace.
Did I mention the outstanding staf that took care of our every need, and that served us good breakfasts and meals? Luc, you've got a wonderful place, and your insights and tips helped us enormously throughout our five-day stay in Marrakech. Personal attention, eye for detail and a healthy dose of humour. Loved it!
Completely justified high ranking on every site you find this riad!

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor, no noise whatsoever!

I stayed with my husband and 6 freinds for 4 nights in this lovely Riad, Luc and his fantastic team looked after us very well nothing was too much trouble, they made our last night memorable arranging a Moroccan evening of music and belly dancing, with delicious food and wine
We made full use of the facilities, the hot tub was a great hit!
The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, with lovely robes, fluffy towels and nice touches like water and dried fruit
Breakfast was plentiful and varied , nothing to fault
The Riad is within easy walking distance of the Souks and we rather enjoyed the alleyways and local life, at no point did we feel unsafe in Marrakech,
Luc was the perfect host , ordering taxis, Recommending restaurants and best of all arranging the most amazing Hamman for us all, a must try in Marrackech!
Would highly recommend Dar Shlomes, and would happily rebook to stay there again!

This riad is a beautiful place to stay in Marrakech. The staff were very kind and helpful. They offered us tea and delicious biscuits several times. We particularly loved having our breakfast on the rooftop each morning. I highly recommend staying here.

Even before you arrive in Marrakech, the staff is preparing your stay. They help you to organize transportation from any point of the city. The smalls and busy streets to get to the Riad are misleading, but when you get there, you are welcome by the friendly staff, especially Luc and Sara. The Riad is well decorated in every detail. The rooms are fantastic! Everything you could ask for in Marrakech. The breakfast is really nice and you can take it whenever you want. The hotel provides you with a cell phone, which can be really helpful when you do not know the language. The roof has a great view over the city and has a Jacuzzi. Unfortunately, I went during winter and did not use it. But I can’t wait to go back. And if I do, I will definitely stay at dar Sholmes.

A fantastic experience staying here! The Riad itself is exquisitely decorated, attention has been paid the minutest detail, from the shawls on the terrace sunbeds to the lovely fluffy towels in the rooms. Our room was beautiful, very nice to come back to after having spent the day walking round the chaos of Marrakech. The courtyard/dining area is a treat to eat in and wonderful to relax in; although this space is quite small we felt at ease relaxing here in close proximity to other guests who were using the area. Breakfast was of a very high quality and having extra warm, fresh bread was never too much trouble for the very friendly and welcoming staff. Luc is an incredible host, he is warm, generous, informative and will go out of his way to ensure that guests have the best possible experience. Thank you!

Room Tip: They're all brilliant - although go for one on the first floor if you can.

We were absolutely thrilled with our stay here. The staff were very helpful, efficient, and friendly. Luc the owner and Sara the Manager were most charming. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with top quality toiletries. Breakfast was amazing and really set you up for the day ahead. The location couldn't have been better, only 10 minutes walk from the center in a quiet residential area. Will definitely stay again next year and can't wait.
