We stayed here at the start and end of our holiday, really loved both times specially as we had a chance to experience different rooms, both lovely. , opted for dinner on each occasions which was delicious and more than we could cope with. Staff were helpful and pleasant. If you have heavy luggage be prepared to haul them up very steep steps. Would definitely stay again, soon !

My husband & I spent a wonderful 4 nights here at this Riad situated in the Marrakech Medina, close to the El Bedi Palace. The staff were extremely welcoming, helpful & friendly. Abdul couldn't have done more to help us. We were lucky enough to be given a large bedroom on the 2nd floor with a lovely seating area right outside.
This Riad is such an interesting place to stay & in a great location.....close to the main points of interest & yet tucked away in a peaceful setting, & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to family & friends.

Room Tip: Double bedroom on 2nd floor was very spacious.

This a fantastic riad. It is decorated and run with charm and style. We loved the characterful decor, and the outside seating area for the room was a great spot to unwind. The room was beautiful and light. The location is also fantastic - not far from Jamaa Elfna, and the surrounding souks yet nicely tucked away. It is also a lot easier to find than most riads in the medina. The leafy courtyard and beautiful roof top views are a definite plus, as is the general feeling of tranquillity at Dar el Souk. Above all we really appreciated that the staff here are extremely trustworthy, helpful and evidently very highly motivated. We couldn't recommend Dar el Souk enough.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed beautiful and individual in their character and charm.

This is another one of those increasingly rare to find Marrakech riads, unspoilt and original. It is not minimalist nor pretentious nor one of those so called, hotel spas. It is relaxed and eclectic.

The staff are extremely polite without being obsequious and the owner, Madi, is very much like the riad itself, beautiful, chic and charming.

The location is ideal with parking just a few minutes away and Place Jemaa el Fna a direct, short walk through the Riad Zitoun souk. Wonderful.

This riad is most definitely one of the best you will find in Marrakech, for both value for money and for a delightful experience.

We stayed at Dar el Souk in Mid-April (great time for visiting Morocco in general) and found the place to be excellent in many ways. We were welcomed by owner Madi and introduced to the team that ran the riad, all very friendly and helpful. Madi sat down in the living room with us and served us mint tea and sweet treats and gave us some good suggestions on where to visit, where to eat and what not to invest our time in. We waited on the beautiful rooftop terrace for our room to be prepared due to an early flight. The terrace became where we had breakfast, caught a bit of sun or where we retreated to the shade after a day in the Medina. We stayed on the ground floor and found our room to be cool, quiet, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated and adored the little quiet space each room had. We arranged a 3 course evening meal for our first night and was delighted we had. Breakfast was equally pleasant. The location, as we found out after a very short period was perfectly located for access to the souk, main square (5 min) and other sights, but far enough from the roads to allow an air of calm and tranquility!
We loved our stay at Dar el Souk. Thanks to Madi and her excellent team who made our stay in Marrakech so memorable!

Dar el Souk is a beautifully done up riad with plenty of places to relax and soak up the Moroccan sunshine. Me and my friend were completely blown away by the service of the staff during our 5 day stay, who were always very kind, and ready to help.

The location of the riad is perfect distance away from the hustle and bustle of the main square (Jemaa el Fna) and the souks (about 5/10 mins walk), as well as from the main museums and attractions such as the Museum of Marrakech and old palaces, which were all within very reasonable walking distance.

You surely won't regret a stay at this Riad. It is a known fact that there are hundreds of riads around the same area, but I am positive that the wonderful staff, service and beauty of this riad is what will set it apart from the others, and all for a reasonable price.

Highly recommended!

Very Lovely riad close to centre of medina in Marrakech.
Reasonably easy to find form outside and simple  5 minute access to town square centre of Medina.  Spotlessly clean, very friendly and helpful staff. Central courtyard of riad is like a postcard.  Room was large and well laid out. Public areas were very pleasant facing onto central courtyard.  Absolute quiet at night.   Would highly recommend and excellent value
