Well, i am sorry it took so long to write this review. We visited Riad dar Alhambra in November 2013 for a few nights over my birthday. To this day i still think about what an amazing place this is. Myself and my other half have travelled to many places in the world, but this was by far the best...

You could not make us happier, your review has even more importance 3 years later. The team is still the same, and the paddling has been redone and is waiting for you with the sun for your next visit! Many thanks

This Riad was really lovely inside and authentic. It is right next to Ben Youseff. The couple who own this place could not do enough for us. Compliments to the cook as well. The only thing I didn't like was the walk to our Riad, the medina is like a rabbit warren and we got lost often although there are...

Thank you for this excellent review. Hamid and the team try their very best to make guests feel at home and accompanied in their visit to Marrakech which is so very different to our own countries. This is our aim in Dar Alhambra. Welcome back one day!

We (two sisters in their twenties) had a great night at Riad Dar Alhambra- right in the heart of the Medina of Marrakech. It was our final night in Morocco and after extensive travelling we were craving peace and quiet- which is exactly what we got! We stayed in a suite downstairs, which was amazing: a huge room and bathroom...

We are very pleased to have made your last night in Morocco a pleasure! Hamid, Fatna and Assisa try very hard to make our guests have a pleasurable stay. In combination with the beautiful Moroccan décor this makes a winning combination for an exceptional stay. As you quite rightly say, it is best to reserve a taxi through the Riad...

We are used to getting everywhere by car so making your way to your accommodation in the Medina in Marrakech is different. No car can drive to the front door but a nice taxi driver at the airport and a guide once we had to leave the car behind, sorted all. For further guidance we used the excellent map.me app...

We spent some hours the day before we checked just to locate the Riad. A good move as it was in the Medina, near the souks, a maze of alleys and streets. The Riad was very clean. A full set of white towels daily, instant hot water, only problem was no shower rose hook over bath. Breakfast was basic Moroccan,...

I arrived quite late at night (9 sth pm). The shops were closed, many parts of the souqs were blocked and it was my first night in the country so i was totally lost. Some guys followed me and insisted to guide me and asked for money, which scared me (later became accustomed to it). But once i stepped in...

I stayed here for 3 nights in January. The riad is a little difficult to locate at first but once you do, you realise how close it is to the main square (10 minute walk). Having said that, the riad is very peaceful and quiet so is a great way to escape the hussle and bussle outside. The staff are...

We found this riad quite easily after getting the airport bus to Djemaa el Fna square. We used an app called Maps.me and had downloaded the Morocco map before leaving the UK. It worked really well as I had bookmarked Medersa Ben Youssef and the riad is very close-by. It would be easy to miss because there is just a...

Magnificent 16th-century Riad, a haven of peace in the very heart of the Medina, lovingly restored in the pure Moroccan tradition - painted cedar ceilings, sculpted stucco, zelliges, marble floors...Impeccably clean, all rooms with private bath, and air conditioning. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Superb 360 view of the Medina, the Koutoubia and the snow capped Atlas mountains. One hundred yards from the Medersa Ben Youssef and the Marrakech museum, 15 minutes from Place Jemaa al Fna. Excellent cuisine! ... more   less
