Riad Dar Shana

Reviewed October 12, 2009

The Riad was lovely, the staff very helpful and the food was gorgeous. It may be useful to some to know that the evening meals need to be booked after breakfast, so don't expect to be able to rock up on your first night and have a meal at the Riad. However they were very helpful in our case and could offer us some lovely soup.
The Riad was spotless, and lovely inside, the rooms were great, basic but just what you need, with lovely bathrooms. Great little suntrap on the roof.
The thing letting this place down is the location. It's right on the edge of the Medina, a good 20 minutes walk from the main square. The walk is fine, along alleys full of small local shops etc, it's just the last couple of hundred yards that are the challenging. You will never be able to find this place without phoning the Riad for precise directions, it really is tucked away down some not entirely pleasant alleys.

Lovely Riad within the old walled city, it was an oasis in the middle of the hussle and bussle of Marrakesh. The staff and accommodation was simply fantastic and although we initially thought it was a little bit far away, it was always a nice walk down the locals main street into the Medina - turned out to be a fantastic base for sightseeing by foot.
