I stayed in this riad for 5days, and i found the welcome very warm. the room was decorated in the traditional colours of morocco, and was clean . I have read other reviews about bed bugs and didnt encounter this at all. The staff were very helpful and nothing i asked or wanted was any trouble to them. I found my stay at Dar Salam very comfortable and pleasant. Also i would just like to add; this is a desert country and dust is in the air at all times , so if your room gets cleaned in the morning as it does, by the evening it will appear dusty, this is something that cannot be helped. Hope you enjoy your stay there as much as i did.

Got bitten all over and although poilte and apologetic, one member of staff tried to claim that it was mosquitos. When I told the owner he barely registered any reaction.

Breakfast consisted of stale bread and watered down jam (v difficult in marrakech as there is fresh bread in every shop!). Eating in the morning was like being in a doctor's waiting room, silent and sullen.

Very disappointed as I had high hopes from the website and photos.

(I'm the kind of person who reads tripadvisor and ignores one or two bad reviews if they are outweighed by more good ones - I wish I hadn't done this this time, especially the review that warned me about bed bugs!)

We stayed there for 2 days, staff and manager are freindly, but the rooms are so dusty and wet and unclean, it seems that nobody looking after them(poor management), it is also in the rough side of the Medine, which is noisy and far away from city center(jemal-el Fena Squre). Beds had insect that did bite my sister very badly that for the whole week she was scraching herself (ichy) and it ruined her holiday. Even in our bed, it was black bits of something like Rat or insects.

The Most important is the Family who is holding this friandly Riad. Traditional style But Modern - Very Good Marrakshy B&B Solotion. For me it is imposible to stay in big, romoros buildings - I love this place And I love this Family and Chear Man Mohamad who is allways on place! Safe and Easy

On arrival, and through out our stay, the owner was unwelcoming and at times verging on surly.
The location is not good. On the outskirts of the old medina it is at least a 20 minute, unpleasant walk, to anywhere of interest. The rooms appeared clean enough, and there was hot water, but this was totally overridden by the cockroaches in the bathroom and the presence of bed bugs. Unless you want to risk waking up to itchy red welts, I would reccomend finding somewhere else.
