Such a lovely place to stay during our first visit to Marrakech. The riad is immaculate, the rooms are very nice, and the staff are fantastic, they are so accommodating they make you feel instantly at home. 10 out of 10 from me, I would definitely stay again. PS the roof terrace is beautiful! Many thanks, Tom and Inese.

On our arrival, the driver gave our bags to a man, who took us right to our hotel doors, which was great, because otherwise we would have gotten lost. In fact we did get lost the same day, but people living there were really lovely and helpful and google maps, as well as the photos taken before, helped a lot....

A fantastic little riad. Spotlessly clean, great food, relaxed atmosphere. All the staff are lovely too. As a solo traveller on my first visit it was great to be made to feel so welcome. Particulary Abdo the Guardian de Nuit, who was kind, friendly and professional. After only three nights I thought of him as a friend. A little oasis....

I stayed at Riad Dar Elma with a friend a couple of weeks ago. We got our room through a discount website and it was good for the discounted rate we paid, but not worth the published rates. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the location is quiet. We arrived late at night as our flight was delayed. I...

I stayed 2 nights here (and also 1 night at their "sister" Riad Baba Ali - my comments apply to both). What a great feeling as soon as you step in the door. Beautiful, calm and cultured. The staff were so friendly helpful and charming. I'll be going back next year to Marrakech and I'll definitely choose this place again.

Dar Elma is probably one of the best places to hide from hustle of the medina of Marrakech. It's calm, relaxing not only because of the nice interior, but also because of extremely nice personnel, who made our stay there unforgettable! we experienced a perfect example of oriental hospitality!Thanks a lot!!!

The room was really lovely, clean and authentically decorated! It was amazing, The people looking after us were really helpful and lovely, and made our stay really special.Really near the city centre, and a short walk away from the Majorelle Gardens, I would happily return to Riad Dar Elma.

I stayed at Riad Dar Elma a couple of days ago for my hen weekend and I couldn't recommend it more highly! The staff were very welcoming and made every effort to make our stay an enjoyable one. It is ideally located for wandering into the souks (15 walk into the centre). It's a haven of calm and quiet after...
