Riad Dar Nabila
Ranked #276 of 499 Hotels in Marrakech
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Charming, quiet and wonderfully relaxed Riad. Great location that gives you the opportunity to experience real life in the city. Easy to walk through the medina to the square or over to the new town for a more modern experience. The hostess was extremely accommodating - don't be put off by the crowds in the streets and Market outside - they are friendly. Watch out for kid that offers to direct you to the riad...he may want more money than you should give him!

We had booked a room here through laterooms.com, however, when we got there the lady in charge told us they had booked us at another riad. We were quite tired and overwhelmed as we got there at night and were a bit lost getting there, however, Khalila offered us some mint tea while we waited for a transfer that would take us to the other riad. She was very nice and accompanied us all the way, but we felt she sort of "dropped us off" to be forgotten at the other riad. From what we could see of the Riad Dar Nabila it was in an easy to find location compared to other riads and it seemed clean and nicely decorated, with a "homey" feeling. Can't really say anything else about it as they didn't really take care of us.

Spent 4 nights at this charming Riad. Kharlila is a perfect host, so helpful and kind and cooks a beautiful tagine. We ate here two nights as we enjoyed the food so much. Day excursions can be booked through here meaning a shuttle will collect yo at the door!
Highly recommended as the peace inside helps you to escape the craziness outside. Cosy rooms onto a traditional courtyard, and African music playing regularly from the seating area.
Don't miss this well priced gem in the heart of Marrakech.

Cozy, authentic, pleasant, clean, etc...... Hidden away in the Medina this little Riad offered a peaceful oasis from the bustle of the city, genuine hospitality, good food and a posh modern Moroccan room.

Can't recommend Dar Nabila highly enough! Khalila, the manageress made our Marrakesh experience fantastic. She was always there to bring more mint tea, arrange taxis, Hammam or trips to the dessert. The Riad is well-placed near the edge of the Medina, meaning you can easily walk to the main square, but also that it's easy for a taxi to find if you don't fancy the walk back at night (the small streets can be confusing). We got a cheap deal on the rooms through Easyjet/Hotelrooms.com - 5 nights for £150 for two of us, so can't comment on price if you book direct. Close to Bab (Gate) Mousoufa and the Grand Taxi rank meant we had no problems finding it. On the first night we just asked a local lad outside, who guided us to the door for 10 cents! The rooms are clean and the bath was enormous! Lovely! We had breakfast in the courtyard every day (bread, honey, cheese, pancakes...) and spent a couple of afternoons soaking up winter sun on the roof terrace. Khalila does a lovely tagine and couscous, though most nights we ate at Djemma Al Fna to watch the entertainment. I plan to go back soon :)

Room Tip: The 'suite' has the most enormous terracotta bath - amazing. All rooms are cool and quiet.

A good location for exploring Marrakech. The Riad was clean and authentic; a lovely tasteful room, open space for socialising and eating and a smashing terrace to sit and read in the warmth of the sun. Excellent value for the price. Expensive if you eat in but for the convenience and service - great. The staff are friendly and always ready to help. Breakfast is the same each morning but sets you up well for the day. Fully recommended!

I can only recommend this place - great rooms of a good size, nice bathroom with the biggest bath i have ever seen and it is all facing the tranquil court yard. Staff was very helpful even if it would have helped if we could speak some French or she speak a bit of English.

The food in the riad is very good even though dinner time can be a bit quiet with only potentially 8 guests and that is if all are eating in. Try the lemon tagine great

The riad is very central so you can walk to everything. The main square is 15 min walk away unless you get lost on your way – which happens a lot but it is no trouble you will get to where you want eventually and you just see a lot of other interesting things on your way.

I can recommend taking the bus from the airport to the main bus terminal and then walk to the Riad. . It is a pleasant ride, a lot cheaper than the taxi and you do not have to haggle with the taxi drivers and the local guide who will defiantly be there when the taxi drops you and have no idea where to go. If you take the bus you can easily find your way to the riad and it should not take you more than 10 min.

Room Tip: Get a superior room as they come with air condition – very important if you like us went in august w...
