The interiors in this stunning riad have real wow factor - I wasn't disappointed. The red and blue rooms especially are straight out of Elle decor. Staff were lovely and helpful and the riad itself was a quiet and peaceful cocoon. Lovely breakfast on the roof terrace. Only unfortunate thing I feel I should make people aware of is the...

Dear Amethyst456 Thank you for your review! Glad to know that you loved our interiors and look forward to have you back in the future! We know the Medina can be a little shabby at a first glance - no name of the streets, narrow allies with poor paving, etc... - but we like to consider it such an ancient...

I stayed in both the red and blue rooms post a long backpacking trip throughout Morocco. It was a stay/an experience highly needed as it was very peaceful, quiet and serene compared to the week of intense non-stop traveling we did. The area of the place is hidden in a small alley but once you step inside the place; it's...

This is a nice hotel with great service but in a not so nice area. Staff would not allow us to walk alone even during daytime. That means even if you want to go out for any meals you need to be walked with their staff escort. We had 2 bedroom blue apartment and it was very dark, aircondition in...

We had a wonderful stay for 4 people and the red suite was superb for us in terms of the history it oozed from this ancient building . Mr Said and the night porter were both very helpful and accomodating and will go out of their way to help . Like most people our first day was spent getting lost...

We stayed in the red apartment and were dazzled by it. A suite of rooms big enough for the children to play hide and seek in, all richly decorated and furnished. There is also a roof garden for outdoor space. We also enjoyed our breakfasts there and evening meals when we had them. The staff went out of their way...

Having no telephone in the room was acceptable, however, there was no designated computer available for guests. Having to coordinate any guides or outings seemed to be very dependent on the staff which sometimes made situations a bit onerous, however, the staff were tremendously accommodating for us when it came to our requests. It was unfortunate that the office that...

Amazing riad in the heart of the Medina. Cool and quiet. Very stylish and charming. Close to everything from museums, Koutoubia mosque and Djema El Fna square and very nice eating and handing out spots but do yourself the favor of eating in at least once. The staff is amqzingly kind, helpful and attentive and the food awesome

I haven't written many reviews in the past but I feel really compelled to share here because in Marrakech one is really spoilt for choice when it comes to hotels, and I wouldn't want anyone to miss an opportunity like this. Dar Darma is a gorgeous hotel as many have commented before, so I won't re-iterate that - what I...

I stayed 4 days in Dar Darma, and it was one of the best experiences I had. It feels like a home, not like a hotel, and it is incredibly decorated. Everything is stunning and the staff is helpful and friendly. The roof terrace is an incredible place to escape the bustle of the city. not to be missed

I stayed here with friends, in the "red room" the decoration is beautiful and feels authentic. The staff very helpful, attentive and polite. The pool area is very quiet and relaxed. The location of the Riad is in the very centre of all of it all, only a five ten minute walk from the main square (if you don't get...
