Riad Dar Palmyra

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The Riad has lots of personality, quiet, nicely decorated, lovely terrace and a great patio were you can enjoy a substations breakfast. Well and conveniently located, close to the most popular spots of the city. Right behind of the King Mohammed VI which makes it a very safe place too.
But if there is one thing I would have to outline most definitely will be the customer service. Thierry and Bushra made my stay in Marrakesh a fantastic experience. Very warm welcome, always resourceful and willing to help.
Next time I´ll visit Marrakesh, I´ll make sure I stay here again. Most definitely a great experience in this bonkers city.

We´ve stayed for 4 nights at this riad in Marrakech and I can´t just say that it was fabulous!!!
Great location and environment, clean, safe, quiet, good value.....the perfect place to stay in this chaotic city. Nice breakfast and comfy rooms.
Staff was extraordinarily attentive, no trouble was big enough for them, always willing to help with a smile in their face. I really thank them the great experience that we had in them place.
Most definitely will return and strongly recommend this place to everyone.

Our first visit to Marrakech, and feeling a little out of our depth, this riad settled our jitters. Nothing was too much trouble for Bouchra ( possibly misspelt) the house keeper or Thierry the proprietor. A short walk to the Kasbah and the Alfna market. A very safe area though somewhat scruffy, it is the medina after all, it represents an oasis of calm in this slightly bonkers city. I would recommend this property without hesitation

We stayed for 4 nights in November. Fantastic riad where nothing was too much trouble. Traditional Moroccon decor, roof terrace for relaxing after a walk to the square. Ideally located by the Kings Palace & a short easy walk to the main square. Would definitely recommend!

One of the best places I've ever stayed. Pretty easy to find considering the chaotic Medina 'labyrinth'. The location couldn't be better (10 min away from the main square -Djemaa El-Fna) and just besides the King's residence which makes you feel safer since there are guards everywhere 24 hours a day. The riad is a gem.. Beautiful, clean, peaceful...and the service...what can I say? Thierry is such a nice guy. Kind, helpful, friendly...we felt like home. (he speaks english, spanish, french, even german I think which it makes it easier- most of people only speak french in Marrakech).There is a pool and a wonderful roof terrace to relax. Breakfast was good as well. Continental, fresh bread, pastries, fresh juice and coffee or tea. They also let us try the mint tea one of the evenings. Delicious, I have to say I went back to MarrakeCH I would defo go back to Riad Dar Palmyra without hesitation. Totally recommended!! Thanks to Thierry and Boushra for making our stay so pleasant.

No words can describe the exceptional service and welcome you receive when staying at this lovely hotel-riad. We have been very fortunate to have stayed in dar palmyra on numerous occasions but our recent visit has most definitely surpassed all previous stays. [They just had a management change 6 months ago, very great that they turn 180 degree in such short time]

Having spent 2 nights desert safari and stayed 3 nights in Fes we spent the last week of our holiday at the dar palmyra. What a treat!!! The welcome we received on arrival to the hotel-riad was amazing, we felt like we were returning home and felt like part of the royal family. Amazing. The hotel-riad remains the same building wise but the new management makes it stunningly incredible. It is luxury in a category of its own. You can have your luggage packed and unpacked, and your bath run for you. The service is truly amazing. We never practice this during our previous stays !!! we just use to stay here as the place is just very close to everything that is all, but now the whole picture have turned around to be more pretty than we ever think of, booked two rooms, we found that one of them was upgraded to a suite with no extra cost whatsoever!!rooms were changed beautifully with new decoration and always very clean, moreover, imagine from the managers who remembered my son and daughters names immediately, and greeted them with a huge smile and 'high fives' every time we went through the door, to the sunny terrace, which was prepared with sun beds, towels, water to drink. Everyone here have exceptional training. All that and we still paid the same price we have paid during our last visit!!!!!!!

The true that the new management, were superb and the best service we have ever had in Morocco. Especially the way they dealt with the demands of our 6 & 8 years old daughters and our 12 years old son.

The service was exceptional. Each morning breakfast at the terrace we were greeted by our names and given our usual requests of drinks for us and the kids, and different Moroccan sweets on daily basis. The staff even offered to get our breakfast by the pool then at the terrace then at the lobby,... always something new every day..True 5 stars... even it is a small hotel-riad, but you cannot make any different between them and any 5 starts hotel chain in morocco, if this one is not better, as it has the home feeling.

Small example of how they are attending into details: when we went to swim at the pool, the manager offers fresh orange juice to the kids and ice water for us on the house, plus “warm body towels” were offered once we came out of the pool, no place is doing this any where...

You may like or dislike the style of the hotel-riad - but nobody would deny that it impresses.
Speaking about staff and services - I did not see so well educated and flexible managers - they a family as I came to know and both hoteliers - as if they read your personality and tell you what you want to hear and behave the way you expect and you need. Excellent!
We personally felt so much at ease and comfortable.
We like to discuss with people and we got absolute reflection of same attitude from all hotel-riad members - no matter if from housekeeping or managers.

You feel there as the Special guest, the Very Important guest.


I could write pages about it! It is truly a hotel-riad that should be visited everytime if you ever visit Morocco.

Our stay at the Palmyra was simply great. It is not our first time in Marrakech and we are a couple used to stay in riads, Palmyra has definitely something different to offer.We booked one of the rooms on the patio view, simply nice and very comfy. It feels very warm. The riad apparently changed management recently( this November), all was smooth. Very welcoming managers who made sure to vary our breakfasts every day of our stay without any supplement charges. The riad is clean and has a huge terrasse with different areas and nice greenery views.
Its very easy access to the place, few steps from main street so no need to walk in the thiny streets, in a very secure area and easy to find if you are like us, kind of getting lost easily! ;-)
Definitely going back there, really enjoyed the welcome and the unique atmosphere in there.
