From the moment that we stepped out of the busyness of the Marrakech evening into the the peaceful, quiet courtyard at Riad Dar Dialkoum, we were made to feel welcome and were looked after with great care and attention to detail. Muriel and Laurent really do go out of their way to ensure that you are comfortable and feel confident about how to get about in the bustling centre of Marrakech. They were kind enough to upgrade us free of charge to a quieter room for a couple of nights and we were very grateful for this - the upstairs rooms certainly have a more peaceful air about them. I have wonderful memories of the beautiful courtyard and enjoying sitting out on the roof terrace with refreshments brought up to us. A wonderful base to enjoy the city.

I recently stayed in the Riad Dar Dialkoum and I must say there were a lot of positives for using this Riad including its authentic décor, hospitality, orange trees and peaceful communal areas not to mention the ideal location if you want to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a quiet oasis in the middle of the mayhem that is Marrakech. The hotel provided free unlimited coffee/mint tea and pastries, free unlimited bottled water, free wifi and extremely valuable tips and information carefully explained by Muriel upon arrival.
The main areas of note for me would have been that our bedroom was quite draughty (we stayed in the Soraya Suite) so even though the heating was on it was still quite cold, our bathroom constantly smelled of damp and we didn't have our towels changed for the entire time of our stay which was 4 nights (5 days). (We could have asked to have the towels changed but surely that should not be necessary in a hotel which is supposed to be ranked as excellent).
We had dinner in the Riad on our first evening, the service was excellent, the tables beautifully decorated and there was a lovely ambience which was a great contrast to the nearby streets. The food however (albeit the best we had in Marrakech) was not consistent of what I would have expected of a Riad of this standard. The dining room was also a bit cold and I had to put my cardigan on as the gas heaters were not being used.
All in all I would still recommend this Riad and I feel we made the best choice of accommodation in terms of location, friendliness, ambience and helpfulness. Thanks again to Muriel and Laurent for their hospitality and I wish them luck for the future.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are less noisy as they are a little bit further away from the breakfast/dining area.

Nearly all the reviews for this Riad are excellent or good - i rate it as good only because to be excellent it really would have to be perfect in almost every way and that would be hard to achieve in this setting. But that is no reflection on Muriel and Laurant who run a very nice homely Riad very efficiently and with great hospitality.

Pros: Beautiful Riad, good location slightly away from main tourist areas (but can all be walked in 30mins) but that gives you authenticity. In fact we couldn’t be bothered looking at the more touristy ‘souks’ area as we had the real mccoy on our doorstep. Muriel and Laurant very attentive, always stopped to speak, always gave good advice.

Cons: (take with a pinch of salt – and treat as minor) Room a bit cold (old building and it was early Feb) despite heaters. Bathroom had damp smell constantly, Bathrobes still damp (see what i mean, this is nit picking), no slippers for a hard cold floor, sometimes pastries not served with the mint tea just when you were looking forward to them! wifi intermittent, bed quite hard. My one genuine criticism was that the chicken tagine i had looked forward to was very disappointing – not spicy and was very tough and stringy. To do that on a chicken leg which can take some harsh treatment and usually still be succulent was a mystery. We didn’t eat again in the Riad. That said, the starter of cheesy samosa things and the dessert of strawberries/yoghurt/filo was nice. And it is a great setting in the courtyard though again, it was cold and there were gas heaters nearby which could have been turned on as a matter of course when people are dining.

You would be foolish not to stay here because of this review. Its a perfect base and haven for exploring the madness of Marrakech.

Room Tip: Due to the nature of the Riad its probably impossible to avoid noise either internal or external. Maybe go for a rook that does not overlook the courtyard. ones to the back near Muriel's office look like they woud be quieter but i dont know the names of the rooms. Just bring earplugs and get a nice room!

Lovely courtyard, lovely room, great breakfast and such amazingly helpful hosts. Really nice base for a weekend stay. About 15 mins walk from the main square but this puts you in an area where you can really get a feel for people just going about their day to day business. Loved it!

Stayed here for 10 days, and all the good reviews are well deserved. It was a great help to be met by a driver at the airport (and very necessary, because we would never have found it on our own). Very relaxed. Breakfast is at 8.00 am, but if you would prefer it at 10.00, or at 3.00 pm after a heavy night - no problem. Eat on the patio, in the dining room, on the terrace, in your room - no problem. Coffee or mint tea - any time, just ask, no problem. And as others have said, Muriel and Laurent, our hosts, and all the ladies working there are all charming and helpful.
The medina itself is a bit of a shock, until you get used to it, with bicycles, mopeds and the odd donkey cart coming from all directions, but amazingly no-one seems to bump into anyone else, but after a couple of days one acclimatises and it seems entirely normal.
We were in a first floor room and about on the same level as the tops of the orange trees in the patio, so the smell of the orange blossom first thing in the morning was glorious. The fresh fruit in the common rooms and in the bedrooms was also a big plus. Avocadoes and mandarins are in season and taste much better eaten close to where they are grown than they do when they are picked half-ripe for transportation to England.

Room Tip: We were in Yasmina, which would have held my bedroom at home three times over.
