Why did i book our stay at Dar Silsila, basically because of all the good reviews! I can say it lived up to everything and more. Jean-Patrick is extremely helpful and has created an experience to be remembered! The rooms are large and the bed extremely comfortable. It is perfectly locate for access to the square and all the sites and sounds of Marrakech. The staff work extremely hard to keep the place spotless and it is all the little extra touches that really do make the stay truly relaxing and enjoyable

You will know Dar Silsila is a labor of love when you meet owner, Jean Patrick. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms very, very comfortable, the common rooms also lovely, and overall everything sparkles. There is a very Moroccan charm about the way the building is decorated. The food was terrific and we received plenty of attention whenever we needed anything. Do stay here when in Marrakech!

Room Tip: no such thing as a room that isn't lovely

Whenever we travel to Marrakesh, which is quite often, we stay in Dar Silsila. It goes without saying that this is our preferred riad in Marrakesh for its style, location, and superb service. A top-notch and serene escape once you've explored the Marrakesh medina and main square.

Jean-Patrick, the owner of Dar Silsila, has created an oasis of beauty and charm in the noisy and, sometimes grimy, heart of Marrakech. The riad is very authentic with lots of French touches. Spotlessly clean with fabulous service, I would recommend the place to anyone who wants to experience the real Morocco. Don't expect elevators, huge, plushy beds or busloads of budget tourists. You can expect a beautifully appointed bedroom, dining room, library and the usual Arab-style courtyard with pool and waterfall. Breakfast included home-made yoghurt and fabulous coffee, plus the usual bread, jam and pastries. Drinks were free and available any time. We arrived late but they had stayed up waiting to serve us a wonderful dinner at 10:30 p.m. The terrace is lovely for a sunset drink or tea. They also laundered our very grubby clothes! Thanks J-P for a wonderful stay.

The riad is very nice and clean, not big and absolutely characteristic and well-appointed.
The service is really special, we also tried the hammam inside the riad and was nice. They upgrade the room if they can and the room was big, clean and special.
wonderful experience!

We booked one week at Dar Silsila for 20 people in november. We spent a fabulous week. The riad has a real authentic feel with lots of original features. There are so many places to relax in the riad, ie the rooftop terrace or lounges. We enjoyed the hospitality and the wonderful atmosphere,

Thanks to Jean-Patrick & his staff, we get personalized services … airport transfer, trip-planning, bus booking, full-body massage, home cooking… The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful.

Riad Dar Silsla is walking distance to most places in the medina, closed to Jemaa El Fna and souks, and not so far from new city too. A taxi can take you up to a 5 minutes walk away from the riad. A great base to explore Marrakech.

All in all, our stay at Riad Dar Silsila was truly memorable and we'd definitely recommend this charming riad to anyone who is considering visiting Marrakech. You'll be in great hands.
