Which is the best way to discover the spelling of MARRAKECH? Put your luggage in the heart of the medina.

Clean, nice and very helpful host, please note the price advertised is per room

  • 4 of 5

The property is very clean. The host makes an extra effort to help you to settle ( for example in our case she helped us to buy a local SIM card and showed us around). Be advised that when you book the property the price is per room. You will later receive an email saying that you need to pay more for extra rooms if you need them. I wish this info was communicated better on the add.

Wonderful staff in a refreshing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The Riad is surprisingly quiet and restful while steps from the door is the chaos of the markets. If you are looking to stay in Medina, the square and the old section of Marrakesh this is the ideal location. Walking distance to everything. Rooms are comfortable and decorated in traditional Moroccan decor. Daily breakfast was simple and delicious.

What really makes this Riad a great experience is the staff: Aicha who is there daily to prepare breakfast and act as escort in the maze of the market - she is very sweet, hardworking and approachable. She accompanied us on several outings. Bidda who welcomed us with mint tea and a history of markets in his shop and also visited us in evening with a fabulous traditional Moroccan meal his wife prepared and Sif who was the driver waiting for us at the airport and also drove us to nearby areas.

If you are looking for an authentic Moroccan experience replete with noise, bartering and cobras dancing to flutes this is the place for you.

If you want to stay in a more contemporary environment, you may want to check out the "New Marrakesh" .

un excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 10 jours extraordinaires au Riad. La première semaine nous avions le riad pour nous seuls.La décoration est particulièrement soignée, les chambres sont très confortables. Ce riad est situé à 15-20 mn de la place Jemma el Fna en traversant les souks. C'est un havre de paix après l'agitation de Marrakech.Mais pas facile au début de se repérer dans le souk. N'hésitez pas à prendre la demi-pension, la cuisinière d'une gentillesse incroyable, nous a mijoté des plats typiquement marocains d'une grande qualité pouvant égaler les meilleurs restaurants. Souvenir inoubliable des tajines et du couscous. Nous avons rencontré la propriétaire le dernier jour qui nous a fait partager sa passion pour Marrakech et ses amis marocains. Allez-y en toute confiance. A conseiller plutôt entre copains ou en couple.

Ausgezeichnetes Riad im Zentrum von Marrakesch

  • 5 of 5

Liliane ist eine liebenswürdige und sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die gute Tipps für eine sehr vielseitige Stadt parat hat.

Das Riad war sehr sauber und geräumig! Das Frühstück war ausgezeichnet und wir können diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens empfehlen.

Besonders hervorheben will ich den schönen Ausflug in das Atlas-Gebirge, bei dem sie uns begleitet hat!

poésie et dépaysement à Dar Malaïka

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons apprécié la beauté des décors , la terrasse avec vue sur l'Atlas, la tranquillité tout en étant au coeur de la médina.

La propriétaire nous a mis en relation avec des personnes qui nous ont guidés et conduits à travers la ville et les environs avec gentillesse et une grande disponibilité.Aïcha nous a régalés des saveurs du Maroc. C'est une formule originale favorisant les échanges ce qui est bien dans l'esprit du Maroc.

Vom Riad direkt in die Medina

  • 5 of 5

Der Aufenthalt im Riad Dar Mailaika war sehr angenehm. Liliane hat uns persönlich abgeholt und ist auch den Weg zum Djemaa el Fna mit uns gegangen. Dabei hat sie uns einiges über die Medina erzählt und uns eine Orientierungskarte gegeben. Insgesamt hat sie sich sehr um uns bemüht!

Das Riad bietet ein geräumiges Zimmer mit angeschlossenem Bad mit Dusche, welches lediglich durch einen Vorhang abgetrennt ist. Es gibt einen großen Innenhof und eine Dachterasse zum gemütlichen Sitzen. Bis in die Souks sind es 4 Minuten zu Fuß, bis zum Djemaa el Fna ca. 15.

Wichtiger Hinweis für die Anreise: Taxi (oder anderes Transportmittel) bis zum Moukef-Square nehmen und von dort abholen lassen (2 min zu Fuß, aber schwer zu finden).
