Dar Nour El Houda is a beautiful Riad. I would highly recommend it. It is very clean and great value. It was our first night in Morocco and Noureddine was extremely helpful and generous of his time in showing us around, giving us directions and maps of the medina and recommending places to eat and things to visit. I organised...

I don't think I can even describe fully how much I loved staying at Dar Nour El Houda, or how absolutely incredible Noureddine is. Me and my friend spent 10 days here and we miss it so much already, it genuinely felt like home. The riad itself is beautiful - really clean, full of light, art and plants. We stayed...

We loved staying at Dar Nour El Houda. Beautiful place and super friendly and help staff! The location was ideal as well. We were a group of friends who booked 3 out of 4 rooms in this riad. All the rooms were lovely. We also had a delicious breakfast on their roof terrace. Really beautiful. Highly recommended!!

This was our first time in Marrakech, and it can be a little confusing and difficult to navigate. We were met at the airport as we booked a transfer through the riad which I highly recomend as getting a taxi at Marrakech airport can be challenging. We were then guided to the riad and met Noureddine the host. Noureddine could...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Nour El Houda is a chic and unique boutique Riad in the heart of the Madina of Marrakech. It is the former home of French contemporary artist Patrick Carpentier and is now owned by a group of British friends who fell in love with the place. The Riad is interior decorated to a high standard in cream and white. It enjoys an open courtyard with a large Olive tree and a plunge pool as well as a terrace with views to the Katoubia and the Atlas Mountains. Each of the four en-suite bedrooms have their own unique character and the entire property is decorated with Patrick's beautiful artworks. The Riad is located in the centre of the Madina, close to star attractions such as Ben Youssef Mosque and Madresa (5 mins walk), the Marrakech Museum (5 mins walk) and the Photography Museum (4 mins walk). Jemaa-El-Fna is an approximate 12-15 minute walk away and a map is provided to guide you. Taxis from the airport stop at Place Moukef (Kaat Benahid), a 4 minute walk away. Famous restaurants such as Le Fondouk, Dar Tazi and Restaurant Naima are all approximately 5 minutes walk away, but in our opinion the best meal is served within Dar Nour El Houda itself with a fantastic 3-course meal cooked by one of your hosts, Asia. Together with our Manager, Noureddine, you will be treated to attentive service where every guest is looked after with the utmost care. ... more   less
