Reviewed February 7, 2014

it shows the power of trip advisor as we wouldn't have known about this hotel without trip advisor but It really is as good as everyone says it is. The hotel was an oasis of peace with service that royalty maybe used to but I have certainly never experienced anything like it. From the minute you step out of the bustle of the streets through their large Arabic door they greeted us with drinks and asked us what we would like to do over the weekend. They sorted trips and meals and gave us a surprise picnic but were also gentle and quiet and "not in your face ". They were spot on with advice on how to deal with frequent "offers of help" on the street. We had a fabulous 4 days and have recommended to friends and family. Small hotel but big on service!

I highly recommend this Riad as probably the best place to stay in Marrakech. The location is very convenient and it is definitely more fun to stay inside the Medina than to stay in one of the soulless hotels outside the ancient city. It is a stone's throw from the marketplace. The Riad has been beautifully converted and the rooms, although not luxurious, are spacious, very clean and beautifully decorated. The staff are very attentive and knowledgeable and everyone is very cheerful which really makes a place for me. Dinner was exceptional and the staff's attentiveness only added to the pleasure of dining in house. Breakfast was good quality and everything was freshly made from the bread to the orange juice. The little touches are there in abundance, from the gracious way requests are dealt with to a surprise pack lunch just before our departure really made Dar Anika a gem. The guide and driver recommended to us were also excellent and we felt very comfortable with them. All in all a great experience. Many thanks Sameer and staff.

Room Tip: The Mosque is directly across the Riad so there might be an unrequested wake up call in the morning...

Staff are amazing, very welcoming, extremely helpful, from arranging the pick up from the airport, to pin pointing attractions on the map. The food is magnificent, both breakfast and evening meals (highly recommend the camel and prunes tagine). Perfect location to get to all tourist attractions and the Souks. I can't thank Fadwa, Alana, the guys and the management enough for all their help in making my husband's birthday truly wonderful. Would not hesitate to recommend this Riad and we will be returning.

Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff who couldn't have done more for us during our stay. The delicious breakfast was served at a time of our choosing by the gorgeous court yard pool. The rooms were exquisite. We never had to worry about getting a cab as the staff always ensured transport was organised. The staff even organised to look after our luggage for a few days when we went to the coast. Really, nothing was too much. Was simply amazing. My only regret was not eating in the restaurant ...perhaps an excuse to make a return visit.

Room Tip: We had the a room on the Ground Floor by the pool which was really lovely. We also treated ourselves...

We were here from 28 December leaving on 1 January

Pick up from airport efficient with a lovely welcome on our arrival at Anika, which is very much hidden from the street, the large wooden doors being set in a little alley off the beginning of the Medina.

Our deluxe room was on the ground floor directly opposite the courtyard/public area (think room10). Lovely room with four poster, vanity unit and spacey showerroom. Only window was a pretty stained glass one overlooking the public area. We were shown a window cushion, to lessen any noise from outside. This did work but there was a feeling of lack of privacy with this room and more than once, other guests congregated outside the door, not helped by seating!

After 2 nights we enquired whether another room was available and were delighted to be shown upstairs to room 3 which was an upgrade.

All was well until we discovered the air conditioning was not working just as we were going out. They attended to it immediately and we were told it was fixed . However on our return much later in the evening we discovered it was only blowing hot air. I should point out I am of a certain age and get very hot so need a really cool room. By 11.30pm it had not been resolved so they had to put us in another room, so after moving all our belongings, we did not get a good nights sleep.

The following day, the owner took up the issue and kindly bought me a fan so we could return to room 3 for our final night. I think everybody looked at the a/c unit but finally concluded it was broken!

Now you might think this is a complaint about Anika! but far from it. We asked to be moved from an acceptable room and things break down but the owner and staff at Anika bent over backwards to help us in addition to their genuine care about their guests stay and enjoyment of Marrakech.

They also made our last night (NYE) very special by Laying a table on the roof terrace under the Bedouin tent for our dinner, which was probably an inconvenience as they had a special night for hotel guests with entertainment which was on the ground floor!

Would be go back to Anika? If we return to Marrakech, yes most certainly, but upstairs!

Room Tip: For privacy might prefer to be up stairs

We arrived on 5th of January for three nights. The hotel it self is absolutely stunning, clean and the best setting for those who want exceptional service in a boutique hotel. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality as the staff were very friendly, helpful and responded very well to whatever we requested. As a couple we are well travelled and regularly stay in. 5 star properties over the world. But this hotel was exceptional on terms of service! On our last evening we dined at the hotel and food was the best meal of our entire stay! Would love to come back soon !

I recently stayed at this hotel. My experience was amazing. The hotel staff couldn't do enough better then some of 5 star hotels I've stayed in.
My husband & I had dinner in the hotel on our last evening and it was the best meal of our trip.
I would recommend this hotel.
