Dispite our taxi driver having trouble finding the place, once inside we knew we had found a real gem. This Riad is small and based round a small courtyard. The ground floor is mainly comfy seating around the courtyard and also where you have breakfast. (This is a simple afair of tea/coffe bread, cake and honey.) The first floor contains 5 of the 6 rooms, all facing into the courtyard. Our room was simple with a large bed, and the bathroom was quirky but fine. The 2nd floor is a roof terrace with sunloungers, hot tub and plenty of seating. It's a good place to watch the sunset and the storks on the palace walls. (We also could pick up next doors wifi up there!!)

All the staff were really helpfull, but only spoke french, greating us with mint tea on arrival and helping us with a taxi on departure.

I'd read the "nightmare" review on here before we went but saw none of those issues while there. It's not a modern 5* Hilton/Travel lodge, but then I wouldn't want it to be. Its a very authentic feeling small guest house with buckets of character.

Room Tip: Don't have the 1 room on the ground floor

Stayed here for a few days. It was a great price, and the staff were so friendly. Breakfast was quite traditionally Moroccan and not huge, but just the right amount and always fresh. The room was a fair size and had everything we needed. The roof terrace was also lovely - a great place to watch the sun go down.
Marrakesh is a beautiful, lively city with loads to see and do - and some great food to try as well.

Room Tip: Try not to get the ground floor room - it doesn't have a window.

When I first approached the Hotel in my taxi from the airport, I was suddenly filled with worry. Tucked away in an alley in the old (stranger) part of town I was expecting, to be honest, a hovel. Luckily the actual Hotel was the complete opposite!

The Riad is like staying in a friends house; the staff are friendly and happy, the rooms are cosy and homely and the breakfast is simple yet filling. As a group of two young girls (both under 21), the hotel felt safe and comfortable. The air conditioning was very lovely, and super strong, just what you need in a summer in Morocco. The rooms had lovely traditional furniture and fabrics and it felt authentic - which for me, was exactly what I was aiming for.

You are free to roam around the Riad whenever you like - there is a lovely selection of comfy nooks with sofas and a lovely roof terrace with sun loungers for all important tanning!
Some of the staff are a little strange, and mostly only speak french, but did their best to help us at all times.

I would definitely recommend for affordable, fun travelling!

Room Tip: While we were there we changed rooms twice and peaked into all of them. They are pretty much all of equal standards but the corner rooms feel a little pokeyer

Before we came to Marrakesh I was a little concerned about finding Dar Loula as different maps placed it in different locations - for those looking to book it, it's through the tinsmith's square, round the corner to the left from the entrance to the Badii Palace - but when we found it we were so glad we'd booked it despite this concern.

The guesthouse is an oasis of tranquillity in a hectic city (the only noise to wake you up is the birds) and it has a beautiful terrace garden which we had to ourselves for most of our stay. We loved our bedroom and large shower, and the hotel interior is magical. The staff are really accommodating too - when we didn't have a small note to pay for a drink we'd bought, the receptionist told us not to worry and to pay him when we got back.

It was so fab that we began to worry the price we'd paid (£200 for a double room for 7 nights) was just a deposit and we were expecting to be charged more when we left - however, the staff just waved us off, leaving us totally surprised! If we return to Marrakesh we will definitely come back here.

beautifully restored old riad, well located in Southern part of Medina. Quiet, beautiful terrace, average breakfast, handy travel service - email for airport taxi at 15 euros or 150 dirham. was dreading going after review of place on here as a "nightmare", but very pleased indeed - at £12.50 per night each for b and b - couldn't ask for more.

Room Tip: we had safia room - small but well decorated
