The riad has only four rooms. Here works at least six persons. We stayed three nights. At arrival the atrium was quite messy with a lot of leaves. We got a small room and was told to get another room the next day but we didn't. We could not get breakfast the last day at 6.45 a.m. Not before 8... More

Avoid at all costs. The staff in this lodge were continually deceitful to us, first by not mentioning the existence of an additional tax when we booked online. Second they offered a tour at a vastly inflated price, finally they lied about the price of taxis to the airport in order to trick us into booking their hotel taxi service.... More

The bedroom had a double and single bed, and sitting area with en suite shower room and toilet, situated on the first floor around a central open courtyard hung with jasmine, with birds in. So there was birdsong in the mornings. The air conditioning worked (it was 40 degrees during the day) The family that run it were very relaxed... More

Good treat in general. Both managers of the hotel were very friendly. Looking forward to stay again at this riad next year. Although I wouldnt describe this hotel as luxurious I would say it was very beautiful and peaceful perfect for young travellers. THANK YOU VERY MUCH ABDO.

The owner has been extremely rude and borderline threatening since I arrived. He mocked me for being a "spoiled American" and cursed at me several times. I'm the only one here and frankly I feel unsafe. There are no locks on the doors and I feel unsafe leaving my belongings here. I don't know what to do at this point,... More

I have only good things to say about Riad Dar Eliane. It is a peaceful oasis of tranquillity amid the beating heart of the buzzing Medina and Souks. Beautiful decoration throughout, the bedrooms are spectacular and the bathrooms eloquently pristine. The view from the roof (on which you can sunbath or chill out with a book) is breathtaking. Easy to... More

We were greeted by the lovely manager, Abdo, who was helpful and friendly throughout our 6 night stay in the Riad. The Riad was situated right in the heart of the medina which at times was a confronting experience. The Riad though is lovely, so tranquil and a welcome respite from the craziness outside in the medina. The breakfast was... More

Considering the cleanliness of the room I didn't expect it to be as expensive as it was; it is too hot here to not have functional plumbing and there was no mention of the city tax that they charged us on the website. Pretty appalling, honestly find another raid-they are crooks and it's not worth the money or frustration.

We stayed at the riad in April. The place was simple but nice and the staff was overall helpful. However, rooms needed a little work (the photos were definitely taken by a very skillful photographer.) Apart from this the rooms were humid and everything including towels felt cold. This was partially solved on our second night when we turned on... More

The Riad Dar Eliane was my first Riad experience arriving in Morocco and it was simply a joy. This beautiful, intimate Riad is immaculately presented and every care is taken by its owner to make you feel entirely at home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The riad has been lovingly restored over many years by its English owner and offers sumptuous accommodation over two floors each of the spacious five double bedrooms has reversible air conditioning with en-suite bathrooms and their chic but authentic styles are to be savoured. The inner courtyard is surrounded by tall elegant arches, refreshed by two flowing fountains and only the whisper of water and the song of the birds will come to disturb your tranquility. ... more   less
