I recently stayed in Dar 73 for 4 nights during my visit to Marrakesh. I've chosen this riad based on the wonderful reviews given on tripadvisor and booking.com and after comparing the reviews of it with other riads. The moment I arrived at the riad, I was astound by the beautiful and tasteful décor. I picked the Tizi' N Taadat Suite Junior and the room is simply wonderful!!! As a frequent traveller, I have high expectations of room standard and I will rate this room as one of the best I've came across. Definitely value for money. Having air conditioning in the room is godsend, especially after a hot day of exploring the city.. The other riad I stayed in Essaouira was nothing close to this... It was old, dirty, no air-conditioning and is almost at the same room rate as Dar 73!!! (I so wanna pinch myself for choosing that riad!!) Anyways, the location of Dar 73 is excellent... a 10 mins walk to the market place and souk, a stone throw away from the El Bahia Palace and about 15mins from the Marrakesh Menara airport.
The housekeeper, Rafika keeps the room spotlessly clean and replace fresh roses in the room daily...Once I asked for iron and ironing board, she offered to help me iron my clothes instead at no charge.. of course I left her some tip for her excellent service.. :) I had hammam done at the riad and it was such a good experience. My skin felt so smooth and totally cleansed!! :) I also had dinner prepared by Ayoub, the chef and he made such delicious Tajine fish.. My best compliments however, is left for Amine, the riad manager who stayed up till 1.30am to await for my arrival. He speaks fluent English and that's really important for me as I do not speak French nor Arabic... He is always helpful and attends to queries with a warm sincere smile. I got to know a lot about Morocco from him.
Overall, I had such a great time at Marrakesh and this is made possible with the awesome accommodation and absolutely great service from the nice people at Dar 73. Keep up the good work guys. :) Cant wait to be back and will highly recommend this riad to anyone visiting Marrakesh :)
