Reviewed June 4, 2013

We stayed at Darhani for three nights in the middle of May. we had the most wonderful time. The staff were so friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived a kind lady offered us a drink and cakes and the manager (who wasn't there that day) rang the Riad specifically to talk to us and check that everything was ok. We stayed in the Walnut Room which was lovely, and the bathroom especially was a real treat. The Riad is in a good location, only a ten minute walk from the main square. Breakfast was lovely everyday, and though we never ate a full meal in the Riad I am sure it would be delicious. My boyfriend and I absolutely loved it and are recommending it to all our friends and family. Thank you! Mark and Amelia

Wonderful stay at Darhani - everything just perfect. The riad is just beautiful and in a fantastic location. Nothing was too much trouble for Omar or the other members of staff - we were thoroughly spoilt, from the mint teas on the roof terrace to the rose petals sprinkled in our rooms. As others have commented, the riad is such an oasis of peace and calm in the midst of the frenetic medina. A very, very special place, cared for by people we will have fond memories of. Our only regret was that we didn't eat at the riad more; we had lunch and dinner there on the day we arrived and the food was fantastic - the chicken pastilla is especially recommended! Fell in love with Marrakech and Darhani - very grateful for all at the riad for making it so memorable for us. Hope to return one day!

Our wonderful memories of Marrakech began at the airport with a taxi driver, sent by the Riad Darhani, patiently awaiting our delayed plane. After winding our way through the narrow alleys of the Medina, we were welcomed into the beautiful Riad Darhani. And, for the next ten days we were the grateful recipients of Moroccan hospitality by an excellent Darhani staff.

Each day opened with a nice breakfast and ended with a relaxing cup of mint tea in one of the setting rooms or on the rooftop. Omar, Khadija, Abdo and Fatima took great care of us and will be remembered fondly.

From the warm welcome to the fresh breakfast and the rose petals in the bathroom, I cannot fault Dar Hani. As my title indicates, this i my fourth visit and its always an absolute pleasure to meet Omar and to enjoy the hospitable and relaxing environment they create. Perfect location next to my favourite place, Cafe Arabe too!

We were made so welcome at Riad Darhani by the team. Khadija cooked us a lovely meal on our first night and the welcome introduction by Abdo was really helpful and made us feel relaxed. The room was clean, tidy and a comfortable escape from the busy Souks and Medina just a street away. Omar organised us a day's cooking course with Gemma at SoukCuisine which we would totally recommend. Darhani has a several excellent places to eat nearby including Cafe Arabe (roof terrace must be booked for evening bookings), Souk Cafe and Terrasse des Epices.

Large fresh towels, and maid service each day made us feel like we were in a 5 star hotel, and Fatima our house keeper always welcomed us home with big smile and was on hand after a busy day shopping and sightseeing. The breakfast was always fresh and more than adequate, with fresh fruit salad each day, pastries and selection of other treats.

We'd also recommend a day using the pool and a extra special buffet at the Sofitel, a 20 minute walk away just for a complete contrast to the Medina. Hope to come back soon, and would recommend Darhani for a more authentic taste of Marrakech.

Room Tip: 3 of the 4 rooms are on the first floor. Not a huge problem but any noise from anybody arriving lat...

Marrakech is more of an experience than a holiday:it is lively, colourful, different and interesting. And Riad Darhani is the peace and calm from the chaos of the city.

Riad Darhani was recommended and booked for us through Travel Counsellors.

The staff were delightful, so friendly and so helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Omar and Abdu were there at all times for advice and service; a mobile phone was even provided in case you were lost amid the souks. The housekeeper was very attentive, everything was very clean and there were vases of roses in abundance. I have to say a big thank you to them all for making my special birthday very special indeed.

We ate at Riad Darhani on our first night in Marrakech. The cook prepared hariri (traditional soup), lamb tagine, and oranges with cinnamon which was delicious. We ate elsewhere on other nights but It was certainly the tastiest food we had throughout our 5 night stay in Marrakech. Ensure you have a good appetite to do the food justice as they are very generous portions.

Breakfast, served in the dining rooms or on the sun terrace, is continental style and the French influence is shown in the light fluffy croissants/pastries served along with Moroccan pancakes, fresh bread, jams and honey, freshly squeezed orange juice and tea/coffee.

Riad Darhani was heaven to return to after a day's sightseeing, and the afternoon mint tea was so refreshing. Whether you wanted to sunbathe on the sun beds or lounge in the Bedouin style tent and settees/cushions on the sun terrace or relax by the pool in the cooler parts of the riad, it was always welcoming. Riad Darhani is definitely worth knowing about. A&A

Every part of my stay at Darhani exceeded my expectations and I would struggle to think of how it could be improved. Beautifully decorated, bedrooms & lounge areas very comfortable, delicious food and staff that couldn't do anything more to be polite and helpful. The terrace has a shaded sofa area which provides some much needed cover from the intense sun, and it was very nice to have a cool dipping pool on the ground floor when you've gotten a little too warm.

An amazing riad with wonderful staff, what more can I say?
