I met some amazing people during my stay at Dar Soukaina. Thank you to the wonderful staff for making my stay as comfortable as possible. Excellent for the price paid... have already recommended to friends of mine.

Room Tip: Could be quite noisy at night. It was v.cold in January. Bring warm clothes.

This place is actually 2 riads across from each other. Clean and comfortable. Internet connection highly variable. Breakfasts consistent despite Ramadan but spoiled by stale bread.
Staff friendly and accommodating.

You know that calm feeling of relief you get when you come home from a wicked busy day? The "ahhh," eyes closed, release of a deep breath moment? That is what Dar Soukaina gave us for five memorable days in early April.

Thanks to Hassan, Ridwan, and their whole team we found respite from the frenetic city in the loveliest of settings at an unbelievably great price. We will carry with us happy memories of a fantastically comfortable bed, morning light mixed with the songs of birds and a few wake up calls from a nearby rooster, deliciously unending mint tea, and genuinely warm individuals.

Be mindful as you would in any unfamiliar place, ask the staff about themselves- Hassan's PhD research sounds fascinating, give your own private words of gratitude when you hear the call to prayer throughout the day, and look no further than Dar Soukaina for a great stay in the medina.

Another sincere thank you goes out to everyone, shoukran!

Me and my friends (2 girls) stayed in this beautiful riad for 3 nights. The hotel manager Rijwan (I think that is his name) was very accommodating and extremely friendly. The rooms were very clean and very well serviced. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Breakfast was simple but very yummy. It is located about 15 mins walk-away from the main market (Jemaa El Fna), about 20-30 mins walk from Bahia Palace and the Saadian Tombs. You might think its a rather long way to walk but trust me - buy yourself some freshly squeezed orange juice, have a bit of banter with the locals and enjoy your walk through the colourful souks. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

Having said that, there is still scope for improvement. The room we stayed in felt slightly cramped for 3 adults. We booked a triple suite but had hardly any space to move amongst us to move around in the room. The wifi connection was seemingly weak therefore was only available in areas near the routers so we had to sit around the courtyard if we wanted to connect to the internet (which really was not much of an issue for us).

Last but a very important tip for female travellers - the riad is located near a very busy medina which is lovely to explore in the daytime. However, it can get slightly scary at night. The taxis did not drive all the way up to the riad because of the narrow alleyways which meant we had to walk about 8 mins from the nearest square so please be extra vigilant and keep an eye out (one of my friends got harassed by some local kids which was absolutely harmless but nonetheless very upsetting).
