Really can't rate the Dar Habiba hughly enough - far exceeded my expectations and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. This is not a five star hotel but it doesn't pretend to be what it is is a lovely oasis of calm filled with rose petals, fragrant oils and simply the most attentive and helpful staff you can imagine - Mostafa and Miriam you were truly fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble from our collection from the airport, the wonderful home cooked meal we enjoyed on the roof on our first night whilst listening to the call to prayer, the restaurant recommendations or the horse carriage ride. Would I return - absolutely yes - in a heartbeat!!!

Room Tip: Stayesd in the Koutabia Suite - lovely ornate high ceiling - delightful wetroom = slightly bigger than the other rooms but can sleep three

Graciousness and flexibillity was what we got! We did Not expect this, but we were welcomed as if we were familymembers. The Riad is Not a 5 Star Hotel, and they do not sell themselves as one, but we felt as if we were in a Dream of comfortness and smothered in friendlyness, if you are willing and interested in the local living, if you are willing to accept a different view of what we are used to in our quit homes and , maybe, disturbung, neighbours, open your mind, and let a whole different life enter into your daily strut. If you are used to Butlers,Reading your wishes from your eyes, helping you in and Out of the pool, do not choose a Riad, it has 4 rooms and you will hear the other guests, snoring and grunting, nobody Said we were inhuman .,
But, I speak for 4 people, experienced travelers, the way we were accomodated, the way everybody was eager to come to our needs, the way the Riad's State was in, it was a beautifull excpirience, I and , I mean we, have learned to Love Mustafa, as well as the 2 ladies, (Biljan)?? who were absolutely Perfect!!!! Yes, you can hear everything of the other guess, so what?? Imagine being in a family, Try to be a Bit more compliant...We did NOT have any complaints about charging us too much, in the contrary, Mustafa always made sure, my daughter and I Were looked after , and we did not pay an amount that we found impossible. Mustafa was honest and True, he did not have to to this, but he did...
I will, and can always reccomend the riad, and I will always stand behind the persons who Run it, let yourselves be surprised, and Indulge yourselves......

Just returned from a fantastic weekend in Marrakech celebrating my big birthday with my 3 friends. Never having been to Marrakech before I was told a Riad was the way to go so after much internet searching chose the Dar Habiba. Prior to departure was kept well informed by the UK contact Andrew and transfer from the airport was arranged.Once we arrived in the Medina we were met by the lovely Mostafa who led us the short walk down tiny alleys to Dar Habiba

The Riad itself was beautiful, just as the pictures on the website had promised. The room was beautifully prepared with rose petals on the beds and calming oils burning. As soon as we arrived we were served a traditional breakfast on the roof terrace which was excellent. We then set out to explore. The main square, the Jemaa el-Fna is only a 5 minute walk away. That evening we had a lovely traditional morrocan meal (cooked by Miriam) served on the roof terrace and at the end of this I was presented with a birthday cake complete with singing candles!

The next day Mostafa arranged a horse drawn carriage tour for us which included the Bahia Palace, the El Badi Palace, the Saadian tombs and the Majorelle Gardens and then to drop us at the Cafe de la Poste which is a fantastic restaurant. On the second night Mostafa recommended a restaurant very close by called Dar Essalam where we had yet more lovely food and watched belly dancers.

On our final day we hit the Souks. We had heard that they would be really busy and the sellers intimidating but this was the not the case. We had a lovely time wandering round and had a lot of fun bartering for our purchases with some very entertaining shopkeepers. Then there was just time to chill out in Dar Habiba for a little while longer as we sat with our feet in the plunge pool and had yet more complimentary tea before it was unfortunately time to go to the airport.

So all in all a fantastic weekend. Marrakech and Dar Habiba were everything I hoped they would be and more! However it wouldn't have been half as good if we hadn't been looked after so well by the lovely staff. Mostafa and Miriam - thanks for everything - I had the best time xx

Room Tip: The Koutoubia suite was fab

Maybe the problem was too high expectations, fed by the lush descriptions and high prices, and a previous stay in the fab Dar Chergui.

But the Riad Dar Habibi felt cramped, no place to escape the other guests, their coughs in bed and morning grunts, breakfast conversation and drunken late-night returns.

The 'terrace' was unpleasant - untended, uncozy, neglected palms. The atrium was covered over with plastic to prevent the rain, but also locking out fresh air. The cushions are fraying, the shower leaky.

The manager, Mustafa, accosted us late on the first night, demanding full payment in cash for three nights, for two rooms. We didn't have that much cash on us (and were considering whether we could make a break to another place, paying just for the one night, but the cancellation policy left no room).

ONe room had a gorgeous high ceiling, but the other was claustrophobically low. Staying in the Riad during the day felt like being in the way of the staff. All compounded by silly exorbitant charges - 17 Euro for a driver to the (5 minutes away) train station, and 25 GBP for a blandish 'welcome dinner' in the too small atrium that costs a third of that at any nearbye restaurant, the cost of the small steam room, without a mud scrub and on a bring-your-own soap basis, higher than at the truly gracious Heritage Spa for a full treatment.

Maybe the problem is that the owner doesn't live on site and the manager is over-stretched, so no room for graciousness or flexibility. But in any event - with the plethora of Riads in Marakkesh, I'd recommend staying somewhere else, even on the same street.

My fiancé and I have recently returned from three nights in Marrakech, two at Dar Habiba and one at the sister riad, Riad Cinnamon. Dar Habiba is down a quiet alley, just off the street which leads to Jemaa el-Fna. It takes around 5 minutes to walk there. It’s less than 10 minutes’ walk to Bahia Palace and El Badi Palace, too.

The riad is lovely – the owners have decorated it beautifully, with lots of traditional Moroccan furnishings. Downstairs, there’s a courtyard with a dipping pool and fountain, and a lounge with a TV, DVD player and books (including some helpful Marrakech city guides). Our room (Berber) was here, too. It’s the smallest (and cheapest) of the rooms, but it didn’t feel cramped at all. All the other rooms were up on the first floor, then on the top floor there was a great roof terrace.

Breakfast was served in the courtyard each morning - no set time, they’ll bring it out whenever you feel like it. Food was delicious – pancakes, eggs cooked any way you like, warm bread and jam, yoghurt, and fruit salad.

Mostafa was a great help – always offering mint tea, and asking how our day had been and if we’d like anything. One evening we took some wine up to the roof terrace and he brought us up some little dishes of olives to have with it. The phone he gave us in case we got lost was also really helpful, although thankfully we never had to use it.

I’d definitely recommend this if you’re looking for an authentic riad close to the square. The Berber room was great value, too – book online with the riad as you get a discount. In comparison with Riad Cinnamon, I would say Dar Habiba is in a better location for the square and palaces (Cinnamon is better for the souks). It’s also quieter – Cinammon is right next to a mosque so the 5am call to prayer is pretty loud.

Room Tip: Berber room was small but has everything you need. It does open straight on to the courtyard, though, so if you prefer more privacy then maybe pick one of the rooms on the first floor.
