We stayed at the Riad Dar One for three nights from 22-25 January, and enjoyed it enormously. The location is extremely convenient, quiet and central at the same time, in a narrow alley (gated and with security) on the edge of the Mellah and just a 2-minute walk to the Bahia Palace and 10 minutes to the Jeema el Fna and the souks. We had the smallest room (Petit Prince), which is cozy and welcoming, with a very comfortable firm bed and an excellent shower. We felt no need to have a larger room, as the common spaces are extremely enjoyable and peaceful, with a beautiful pool in the center of the courtyard and a lovely lounge with fireplace. Jean Peres is an excellent owner and host, always happy to chat and to offer advice and insights. He has beautifully designed and furnished the riad himself, and clearly enjoys welcoming and advising his guests. Breakfast is lovely, with tea, coffee, fresh yogurt, bread, jams, honey, and juice served on demand (no restrictive time limits!), and one can choose where to have it--in the courtyard, the lounge, the roof terrace, or even one's own room. In addition to Jean, Isham and the rest of the staff are just wonderful; they are kind, efficient, and helpful. They gave us very good advice on restaurants, booked us an excellent taxi for an evening outing (Abdel, taxi no. 720; ask for him!!), and provided refreshing mint tea and sweets when we returned home from sightseeing. All in all, a beautiful, characterful, and friendly home in Marrakech. If we are fortunate enough to return to this wonderful city, we won't be staying anywhere else!
