“Magical Riad in the medina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We traveled with a group of 14 and all were thrilled with our rooms. Each room opened onto the courtyard and each was decorated top notch. Our hotelier Jean-Patrick made each of us feel welcome. He was available in the morning to help us wtih any questions as well as make excellent dinner reservation recommendations. The staff was always available to help i n any way they could. We had dinner in house a few nights and they were so generous with the food that we couldn't eat it all. jean-Patrick was also there to wish us well upon our departure. I would definetely return to visit the Riad , eat the food and visit with JP.

Room Tip: impossible to not have a great room. We took 7 rooms and all were great.

We arrived late one day and Jean-Patrick was not there to greet us personally but Salaam, who took care of us that first night, was his most gracious representative. J-P was surely expecting us though so we spoke to him on the phone which I thought was very sweet. Staying in this riad makes you feel like a valued guest, not just a paying customer. J-P and his staff are very hospitable and the breakfasts and dinner we had were wonderful. It's a very short walk from Bab Laksour so it's very convenient for a taxi or car pick-up/drop-off. The main square is only a 10-minute walk away and yet the riad was peaceful. J-P was also very helpful in figuring out our priorities for visiting Marrakech and he made a wonderful suggestion and reservation for our dinner one night. We probably stayed in their smallest room which had 2 twin beds but it was clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished. When I come back to Marrakech I will definitely stay in Dar Silsila again.

Location is excellent, just a few minutes walk to the square. Wi-fi connection inside our room was also great. Most importantly, Jean Patrick and his entire staff are very friendly and helpful. Assistance is always prompt and done with a smile.

I just stayed at the Dar Silsila and have to say that Jean Patrick and his staff are wonderful! The riad is very conveniently located to Jemaa el Fna square, and leads into the souks for convenience.

Highlights for me included:
Terrace breakfast every morning.
Wonderful dinner (samosas and a vegetable/meat tagine)
Jean Patrick helped to coordinate 3 excursions
Upgraded room for the first half of my stay since it was being unused
The wonderful smiles and friendliness of the staff at every moment
Laundry on site

I would highly recommend anyone to stay here and experience the hospitality that Jean Patrick and the staff of the Dar Silsila can provide.

Room Tip: The suite was nice as it didn't face the alleyway. It was very silent. The room I had the later...

This Riad was a great find. Upon arrival we were given mint tea while filling in our forms, was very easy booking dinner in the Riad on our first nights stay and wonderfull 3 course meal it was to. All of the staff were happy and friendly, the ower Jean Patrick advising us on good places to eat and places to visit, he even booked us a table at a very good resturant with tips on how to get there and how to get back. the whole place was lovely and if ever i was in Marrakech again i would stay here.

Just what we were looking for. after a 5 day hike in the atlas mountains Jean-Patrick's riad was a perfect place to rest and recuperate away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Its location is perfect (10min walk from the main square) and the rooms are lovely. There was the option to eat there (and we did with a lovely meal), and we were also given great recommendations on where else to eat and what to do (and how best to get there and do it).
Highly recommended.
