Push the door of DAR MALAÏKA and you enter in a traditional moroccan house.Here you are in the center of the house, the patio. All rooms face it and its fountain.

A dream come true...

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely charming riad in the heart of the medina. Super clean. Comfotable bed. Beautiful decor. Aicha is such a kind and helpful host. She prepared a wonderful breakfast each morning with traditional mint tea, coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice and assorted Moroccan breads and delicacies. Her tagine dinner was succulant! And she cleaned our room each day! We didn’t want to leave! (Tip/Beware: As you get lost in the medina - and you will get lost - beware of teenage boys who will propose to “help” you. It is a pretty regular routine for them to see you trying to find your way, pretend they know where your destination is and lead you “wherever”. Then they stop somewhere after about five minutes of following them through twists and turns in the narrow alleys. They point and tell you it’s right over there - just go straight then left (or something like that) and ask you for money for their “service” - leaving you more lost than before.)

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" .

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce Riad....Lilane à été adorable nous accompagnant et nous guidant à travers la Médina...nous avons pu profiter de son expérience et de ses bons conseils sur place. Nous nous sommes également régalés des bons petits plats d Aicha. Nous reviendrons surement..

Excellent rapport qualité prix pour ce raid.

Magnifique riad au coeur de la ville et pourtant très calme.

Petit bémol pour la douche (impossible de régler la température de l'eau...)

Très bonne adresse

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Marrakech ( le dépaysement était garanti) et dans le riad également. En passant la porte, on savoure le calme. C'est aménagé et décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Les conseils donnés par la propriétaire ont permis d'enrichir notre séjour de rencontres et de découvertes. Aïcha est pleine de gentillesse, de sollicitude, d'attentions (nous avons particulièrement apprécié son "dessert -surprise" pour l'anniversaire de notre fils) et c'est une très bonne cuisinière.

Tout était réuni pour de beaux souvenirs et un séjour inoubliable.
