“A delightful medina hotel with lovely rooms and outstanding service but a disappointing and expensive evening meal.”

Reviewed November 6, 2011

We stayed overnight in the Dar Kamar, based on a 'Lonely Planet' recommendation. It is tucked away in the old medina away from the noise and tackiness of the main road and is a beautifully restored old house with lovely rooms. The terrace and its view over the valley and the back of the Glaoui kasbah are outstanding but best of all was the welcome given by the manager, Mohammed, who could not have been more helpful or discreetly attentive.

We would have rated the Dar Kamar well into the 'excellent' category, were it not for a dinner meal which, while adequate and taken in a lovely setting, was unimaginative and very expensive for Morocco.

Another slight drawback was the fact that the surrounding medina survives on tourism and the consequent hastle from assorted shopkeepers and would-be guides.

The hotel is amazing: perfect location (inside the medina), wonderful building and rooms. On the roof there is a big beautiful terrace: a place to eat or relax with a view on the medina and the whole valley up to the El-Mansour Eddahbi reservoir.
Staff is extremely nice and helpful and the dinner was simply amazing.

Stayed here as part of a tour of Morocco and we arrived at Dar Kamar on Christmas Eve and spent one night there.

Every room is decorated differently as the photos show and our twin room was no exception; it was a nice size with comfortable beds and the complimentary water and peanuts are the small touches that make this hotel great. The ensuite was a good size - I did have to run the water for a while to get hot water, but it was fine after that. The hotel is an old courthouse, but has that riad feel to it (it's in amongst some of the smaller streets and looks plain from the outside) but is away from the noise of the main road.

Foodwise we didn't have dinner in the hotel itself, but instead walked into the town. We had breakfast up on the terrace on Christmas morning, which was amazing with the sun coming up and the freshly prepared and well selected food.

It's impossible to stay here without mentioning Mohammed, who must be the hardest working man in Morocco and for whom nothing is too much trouble - he also speaks excellent English, French and Spanish.

Overall for me, this was the best hotel I stayed in during my Moroccan tour and I wouldn't bother looking for anywhere else to stay were I to return to Ouarzazate in the future.

We stayed one night at Dar Kamar on our way to the desert. It is definitely the best place to stay in Ouazazate. It is a little way out of the town centre in the Kasbah. There isn't much to see in the centre of town so you aren't missing out! Mohamed was a great host and took us on a walk round the kasbah before dinner, we got to see so many things that we could never have done on our own. The rooms are great, really romantic and there is a fabulous roof terrace, sadly it was too cold for us to have breakfast up there but there are still great views from the dining room. Would definitely recommend.

I hope the Title is correct, as i am referring to the small roads inside the old town...

We where traveling back home , and had to find a hotel for Overnight as our flight out was the next day...
As we where standing in this small parking lot, outside the medina,this kids approached us and asked to help us for a small fee to Cary luggage ...
While we where going down this really small alley , i wasn't so sure anymore if we made the right CHOICE! ..and when arriving at the door nothing could have prepared me for what was waiting for me inside...

Really stylish Hotel, helpfull staff...Amazing building...But the BEST WAS the TERRACE..
...wont say more , you should Try it for yourself....

Really enjoyed my stay....all though the small and dark alleys SCARED my wife!!
I juts have to say its A PERL INSIDE, dont let the outside spoil it!!!!
