Reviewed January 3, 2012

The riad is close to get from Place Jenda el Fna. The stuff is very friendly and they can help you find the best prices when you want to go shopping in the medina for souvenirs. The breakfast is very good. It is a nice experience if you look to stay in a riad and not in a hotel. It is traditional and yet modern : hot shower, air conditioning, internet.

ok, so i was reading the other reviews here and felt I needed to review this place. If you are expecting a hotel quality stay this is not your place. This is your place if you are self sufficient and need minimal guidance. So the riad, amazing. truly. I loved this place. We had two delux rooms, (I was travelling with one of my male buddies) and each room was large with a big seating area and private bathroom. The Riad is toward the edge of town but only about a 10-15 minute walk into the center of town. As far as the staff not being helpful, I disagree, he arranged our transfer to and from the airport as well as a private car tour to the Cascades de ouzod. (which are amazing by the way!) If you stay here, I strongly recommend having the riad set up your airport transfer as they are on a side street and very hard to find the first time. The street leading into the actual place is dark and almost creepy, (even for two grown males in the middle of the night) but once inside it was great. so beautiful. Marrakech is such an amazing city, and staying in a hotel seems like it would make you lose a very large part of the experience of the culture. I reccomend this place 100% and would stay here on any return visit!

I can see why the reviews are mixed on the service. We didn't get much guidance when we arrived, and were left to fend for ourselves when we needed a petit taxi on departure. But this hotel has good air-con, comfortable beds, hot water, good location, and a nice breakfast. And the price is reasonable. So, overall, good value. Just don't expect to find your next best friend running the hotel.

Not too close, not to far from the souks. An authentic neighbourhood experience. My room was huge and very comfortable. The staff were as helpful or as giving of privacy as you wanted. As I was arriving late I asked if a meal could be arranged for my arrival and when I walked into the riad a hot meal was place in front of me before I could even put my suitcase down! Excellent as was the bottle of Moroccan red wine....

What I found interesting was how it was so quiet at night! When you walk out to the main road there is average street noise but back in the riad it was almost silent. I slept so very well.

Breakfast was simple but just what you wanted. I really enjoyed exploring the local area seeing how the locals live.

Excellent place to stay. Quiet, clean and cozy, ten minutes from the main square, really really friendly stuff. I would definitely stay there again! An oasis in the middle of the medina.

We had a great break at the Dar Al Hamra. The riad is located around ten minutes walk from the Jeema el Fna (main square). The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to help us. The riad is well-maintained and clean and the breakfasts (fresh orange juice, bread, pancakes and jams etc) was delicious. A great base to explore all that Marrakech has to offer and to relax in at the end of the day.
