we stayed at dar soukaina for three nights in mid feb on a two week trip around the country. it was our first stop and as such we were very impressed with the beautiful interiors, excellent service (attentive, friendly, and very helpful), and relaxing atmosphere. breakfast was hot and hearty, the room was clean and wonderfully decorated. as such it was very good value for money, and I do not hesitate to recommend it.

if i had left morocco after staying here, it would probably have got 5 points from me. however, i have to say that we did stay in riads in other cities that were even more impressive and really rolled out the red carpet. plus something went wrong with the drains in our toilet on the second day so the room smelled quite badly unfortunately. to their credit, the staff tried to fix it, and i cant blame them for what was just bad luck, but it did spoil our stay a bit... I feel bad docking a whole point for that, because as i said it really is a lovely place with lovely staff, and it wasnt their fault per se, but there are a lot of riads in marrakesh and i have to admit i would have preferred a stay at one without this drainage problem...

but a strong 4 out of 5 nonetheless, in every other respect!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Dar soukaina for a whole week, initially we were only booked in for 3 days but we liked it so much we negotiated a deal for the entire week.
The staff are delightful and very helpful and attentive and made us feel extremely welcome.
The breakfast was great and the mint tea on demand was one of the highlights.
The Dar Soukaina is perfectly situated just 10 minute walk from the main square, Jemaa el Fna, but is incredibly peaceful and quiet just tucked off one of the main streets.
All of the staff spoke French and both Rashid and Jamal spoke good English also so communicating was not too much of an effort.
The rooms are all very clean and there is wifi internet access throughout the building.
All in all this was a great place to stay, incredibly good value for money and would not only recommend to any friend but will stay there again should we visit Marrakech in the future.

We stayed 3 night instead of 4 as planned in Marrakech, at Dar Soukaina. The place is very hard to find, you'll need a local that'll guide you to the door. I paid 20mad. The riad situated a couple alley from a main street in the heart of the medina, it is completely peaceful and quiet. The rooms and ambiance is very local and beautiful. Internet is good. The breakfasts are good. The only downside is that I expected the staff to give us more advise on what to do, where to buy, etc in the Medina. (Which is a big labyrinth full of people trying to sell things at excessive prices). But they barely spoke English and couldn't help up. That's the place you want if you want to stay in the heart of the medina in a quiet and charming place, but don't expect any advice from the staff.

The staff at Dar Soukaina are the sweetest people and although we spent so little time with them given our early mornings and late nights, we really appreciated their attention to detail.

This is a wonderful and reasonable riad with very nice and clean rooms and bathrooms. The breakfast was wonderful! Both Rashid and Jamal were great.

We were able to get a few things laundered (and we just tipped the housekeeper for her trouble)

We had a wonderful and cosy sitting area outside our room (Menthe) where we enjoyed unwinding after a few hectic days with some tea :)

Only improvement - although there was a heater and radiator we were not able to get the room adequately warm - it got quite chilly during the November nights we were there. To be fair, we were only there 3 nights and got in so late in the evenings that we didnt really bother the staff to help us try to get it working properly.

As soon as we stepped into the riad, Fatima and her staff made us feel at home. The tranquil setting meant that after each day out in the Medina, we really did feel all the hustle and bustle just melt away. We had a intense 3 days in Marrakesh and Dar Soukaina was the perfect antidote to a busy day. The riad was surprisingly quiet given how close it is to the Souks and Jemma el fna. Even when we spent an afternoon sunbathing on the terrace, no noise filtered the air from the square. Our room was clean and simple and overlooked a quaint little courtyard a washed with white walls and a banana tree in the centre. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Let's be honest it wasn't the plaza, but the given how cheap it was we were treated like we were at a five star hotel. I almost want to keep this place a secret.
