“Great location and friendly proprietor.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our family of 4 took 2 rooms for 3 nights at Dar Al Hamra. It's location is very close to the main square, so it was easy for us to tour the square and the souks for a few hours, then come back to rest a little in our rooms before heading back out to the square or other attractions. The owner was very friendly and nice, and his English is fine. The breakfasts were included, but they were simple Moroccan styled. We arrived by the overnight train from Tangier, and the station was very close, may be 10 to 12 minutes (costs 100 Dhm, a little overpriced, but not too bad). We took the larger SUV arranged by Dar Al Hamra since we had 4 people and 4 suitcases to the airport, which was only 15-20 minutes away (costs 15 euros). All in all, we had a very nice and relaxed stay at Dar Al Hamra and recommend to those who likes to be close to the action, but far enough to stay quite at nights.

Room Tip: Reserve the larger rooms if available as the prices are similar, but much larger.

I really enjoyed a lot my stay here with my wife in that Riad, the price is not expensive if we compare with how near is that Riad located to Medina, in the area you can find anything you want, and the Riad is so nice, well decorated and more homey.

We are currently staying in this riad. The staff have been very helpful and the room is fantastic for the price. It is a budget riad but has air conditioning in the rooms, great water pressure and was exactly what we needed for this trip. A small oasis of calm in the midst of chaos! The room is quiet and dark with the lights off so we are sleeping very well. Thank you to the staff for helping organise the trip to the mountains and for welcoming us to your home!

Dar Al Hamra is a hidden gem in Marrakech Medina. The rooms are beautiful with a large bathroom that has actual water pressure - a rarity in Morroco! The rooms are clean and come with AC, breakfast is nice with local bread speciaties, freshly squeezed orange-juice, tea and coffee. you can either eat in the courtyard or on the rooftop terrasse with a gorgeus view of Marrakech Medina. The personel is very friendly and give you help you with wathever problems or questions you have. Would definitely recommend this place!

This is a lovely little Dar (a hotel with private bathrooms, but it is a house where owners and workers live too). It is worth getting picked up at the airport, although they charge you for it. It's hard to find otherwise, but once they show you your map over the welcoming cup of mint tea, you can see how easy it is to walk to the Koutubia Minaret and the main square Jemma El Fna. Watch out for the guy with the monkey. He will try to toss it on your shoulder and demand money. Stand firm and don't take a photo or he will be very loud about getting money for the photo you took.

So, the Dar was welcoming and had a lovely rooftop terrace with breakfast served there. IT was awesome. The rooms have air conditioning and ours had a couch, closet, nice bathroom, and comfy bed. The door did have a padlock, although they do come in to tidy up.

I loved it. Note: Do not do the excursion to SEtti Fatma that they arrange. It was not a good experience and cost lots more than just the payment we made to the hotel. I would go online and find the excursion companies and have them come get you and make sure you get to see all the tings or waterfalls or whatever you want to see.

Took a little finding( but just round corner from Bab Doukkala mosque) what a gem of a place if you do not want the trappings of hotels. The staff, Nabil and Brahim were excellent and my whole family really felt welcomed and looked after. Lovely rooms, breakfast on the roof terrace, main square just 10 mins walk. Excellent.
