“Perfection in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Samir and his staff go out of their way to make sure that your experience in Marrakech is an enjoyable one. The Riad is gorgeous, well appointed, and is ideally located for exploring the Medina.

I suggest having at least one dinner on the terrace. The food and the view are phenomenal. Their only rival is the service- which was perfect without exception.

I would have no hesitations recommending Dar Anika to anyone looking for a first-class stay in Marrakech.

Very comfortable stay. The staff are helpful, the rooms are nice, the location is good. Very difficult to find anything negative to say. I would recommend the hotel. In essence, the hotel is small, comfortable and nicely located. A little pricey perhaps. We did not eat at the hotel.

The old walled city of Marrakech is amazing. It's busy 18 hours a day/night with people, donkeys pulling carts and mopeds coming at you from all angles but a place to visit on your must visit list. We stayed at the Dar Anika which is ideally situated for visiting all sites of interest. It is a 5 minute walk to the Medina and Souks. The staff at Dar Anika are so nice and can't do enough for you. On our arrival we were met by the owner who spent an hour with us drinking mint tea with various pastries and advising us with a map where to go and what to avoid. We were then shown to our room with a large 4 poster decorated with red rose petals. The bathroom also with rose petals was really nice, no bath but a really good shower. Meals taken up on the roof were superb and the views excellent. You can walk the whole city but be prepared to get lost because you will, even with a map. Just go into a shop and the guy behind the counter will put you right. Don't ask anyone else, They will offer to help you and you end up at a 'friends' and get the big sell. We were there for 3 full, exciting days. If we had booked 4 we could have done the mountains so we'll go back to Anika in a couple of years and do just that. Anika is so quiet after the noise of the city, one of the best hotels (for it's size) we have stayed in. Go there and enjoy.

Room Tip: All rooms are different. Contact the riad and speak to the owner who will describe each room. The we...

If you're looking for a touch of culture, heritage, balanced equally by both an excellent and personable service; this is definately the place to stay in Marrakech! We really feel that our wonderful holiday was the result of our stay at Riad Dar Anika. Samir - the manager made it such a hospitable experience and recommended the best of Marrakech. The staff were truely attentive and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and truely a memorable experience. If we are lucky to revisit the city, we will most definately be staying here again!

Whilst not wishing to repeat other reviews, as the title says, 'it couldn't have been better'. A 4 night stay where nothing was too much trouble for Samir and his team. Everyone was courteous, and helpful. What you mustn't miss is the welcome chat Samir has with you, as it sets out the do's and don'ts of Marrakesh and he also tailors the chat to your requirements.
The Riad itself is perfectly located, not too far from and not too close to the hustle and bustle of the market and souks, coupled with a roof terrace to come back and relax in what becomes your 'home from home'. Again it couldn't have been better, thank you Samir and the team.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Just got back from a four night stay at the Dar Anika. First time in Marrakech and we certainly made the right choice of hotel. Location was great but what really stood out was the standard of service from Samir and his team - friendly and professional in the extreme. As a previous reviewer has said they really did create a real home from home.

We stayed at other riads - but Riad Dar Anika is truly worth the time to write about. This riad is in the perfect location. Our room was spacious and clean. The common areas were well appointed and there was always someone around to attend to our needs. The walk to the souks is easy and yet it is on the edge of all the chaos - which makes for the perfect place to retreat after a long day sight-seeing and bargaining. We've stayed at 5 star hotels around the globe and have to say that the staff here is on the same par. We wanted for nothing. Abu and Samir were extremely accommodating and gave us one-on-one attention in order to see what ways they could help make our vacation memorable. Upon our departure, we were each given wonderful brown bags filled with sandwiches and fruits to carry us through our next destination. I even received a beautiful bouquet of roses - such a nice touch and yet so unexpected. A big thank you to the staff - they made our stay most pleasurable.
