“Very friendly owner, good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

The owner is very friendly and helpful (by far the best we met in Morocco). We had two rooms that just were built on the roof with a nice terrace, although chilly without the heater switched on. About 20 min from the central square and 10 from the main souks through varied Medina area. At one of the main streets. This is noisy during the day, but didn't affect our sleep during the night. You clearly hear the call for prayers and the roosters in the early morning, but that adds to the atmosphere (and probably is heard anywhere in the Medina). Average breakfast. Can be reached by car for baggage dropoff. The nearest good parking is 700m away.

Room Tip: Just check them out. The new rooms on the roof may be hot in summer.

We were so lucky, it's a nice place ! .
The staff are very freindly ,efficient and pleasant in particularly the owner and manager Sobha . The rooms are very warm and clean .
Sobha is a great cooker so if you have never tried the moroccan gastronomie it's the time !!!
You won't be disappointed .
Very helpful, always available 24/24 hours .
If you are looking for authenticity, charm, kindness and good food, then go to the Dar Salam....

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.
