“Home far away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

One of these places where you feel rather at friends house than in hotel. In addition to that -large clean rooms, great food and a some of the most nice personel you could meet.
For this price the best option. The only small negative point- not in the very center of medina...

Although we had real problems with locating the riad (it's in a side, narrow street, without any directions on the way) and find ourselves in a room with no water (fortunately just a temporary problem), Dar Salam has a nice atmosphere, pleasently ecclectic decor and friendly staff. Mind that not all members of the staff are fluent in English and the breakfast is pretty modest (coffee and tea, some bread, two pancakes and honey, no juice or other beverage).

This riad is small, nice, clean, but with little troubles. Really nice and helpfull staff, familiar athmosphere. Good but expensiv cuisine - dinner for 200 dirhams. Some rooms have windows only to innere space, its stiller. I was full satisfied with this.

We arrived mid afternoon at Marrakech airport to be let down by our "booked" transfer. No-one arrived and we were left to find our own way to the Riad. Despite telephoning for help nothing was forthcoming. Arrived in what looked like a dirty street in a dodgy area. Once inside slightly more comfortable. Two young men (guests) welcomed us. No sign of owner or housekeeper. Room OK. Toilet seat almost hanging off the loo and toothpaste glasses dirty from previous guests. Breakfast pleasant enough on top terrace. Housekeeper was totally dozy and like a tit in a trance. She didn't welcome us and had no idea when we were leaving. Very bizarre woman. Would not recommend this Riad. Long walk to centre of Medina. No offers of help re finding taxi nor any advice given. There must be friendlier places in Marrakech. Totally disappointing.

Room Tip: I could not in all honesty recommend this Riad to anyone. Housekeeper useless and had no idea who we...

I stayed in Dar Salam one night before i headed back to the UK. It was a very nice and pleasant night. i stayed in the tent room on the roof. lovely room with traditions and nice decorations. the terrace is fantastic and you can see a lot of Marrakech from it, i had a local mint tea on the terrace that evening and enjoyed a lot. and in the morning had a fantastic local breakfast. The management are really kind and and the service during the stay was excellent. if i go back to Marrakech, i would stay again in Dar Salam

This riad is not close to the city centre and the dodgy area with narrow and small streets makes it difficult to follow the map and makes the journey extremely long. The youths in the area who pretend to be helping you by guiding you, fool you around the narrow streets (making it long) for something which was like 100 metres away and then force you to pay huge amounts. The smiling and helpful youths suddenly turn angry and violent.

About the riad itself, there is not tariff mentioned in the hotel. The rooms are NOT ventilated and makes it suffocating in summer with no windows outside. The bathroom and toilet area is extremely small. There is some decoration in the rooms but with the suffocation you will hardly notice it.

The housekeeper is a weird person. We were asked to pay on the day of arrival and even after asking everyday for a bill (for our proof) we were not given the same (Reasons were like the office room is closed, key is lost, owner is out, computer is broken, etc). The housekeeper is not honest with currency conversions too, by asking high exchange rates.

The hammam is not in the riad itself. They have a tie-up with a hammam place. To reach this place, you have to deal with the youths again and once you reach this even more dodgy place, you find it closed or something else, even though the housekeeper made an appointment for you. The hamman rates are extremely high compared to other hamman's mentioned in the travel books. The breakfast only starts from 8.30am, though exception is possible if asked for in advance. There is a kitchen in the riad but needs a day advance booking for meals.

Not recommended for solo travellers (especially girls). You can find similar priced riads much closer to the city center.

We stayed here on our first night in Marrakesh and were pleasantly surprised! We stayed in their tent room on the roof. It was beautifully decorated and very unique! We loved sipping our mint teas on the roof terrace when we arrived and had a lovely breakfast their as well. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I see other reviews say that it is very noisy, but I challenge you to find a place that isn't loud when staying in the city walls. We slept great! I recommend booking in advance, we tried staying here again when we returned to Marrakesh after hiking in the High Atlas, and we weren't sure if they were full for the night, or just couldn't help us without an advanced booking. I have to say for the level of hospitality and the wonderful room you can't beat the price!

Room Tip: The Tent rooms on the roof are very special
