Staying at Riad Dar El Aila was like staying in an oasis of calm in the middle of the bustling medina. The location was excellent, very close to the souks and ‘big square’ and many gorgeous restaurants, and within walkable distance to the Palaces and the Jardin Marjorelle (although the Riad was king enough to help arrange taxis for us...

It was our first time in Marrakech and we were overwhelmed by the madness of the city. This riad was the perfect tonic to the hectic streets of the medina. Very friendly staff, very nice comfortable room and beds, beautiful sunny rooftop perfect for relaxing after the day. Nice food also. Youssef was very friendly and made us feel very...

A wonderful friendly Riad that helped us enjoy a break to Marrakech . We loved the roof top garden and the welcome mint tea and we enjoyed our chats with a very helpful, Mohssin, who ensured our breakfasts of amazing orange juice and home made delights started us off well.

Our least favorite of the 3 riads we stayed in while in Marrakech. The place was fine, but a little run down and could use a facelift. We were supposed to stay at their sister Riad, Riad Origines, but they moved us to this one at the last minute and it was supposed to be a "good thing", but we...

This riad was so nice! The staff is super friendly, the location is good. I would definitely recommend a airport pick-up, because it is very hard to find in the medina. So the first time you get there, you're sure not to get lost. The room was great, clean and a lot of ambience. Also the patio is nice, and...

Just came back from a long weekend with some friends. Although a little rough around the edges in some place, you need to remember that this is Marrakech! The place was incredibly clean and staff could not have been more helpful. Trips are probably on the more expensive side, but it is worthwhile for the convenience. Breakfast was basic but...

Amazing terrace they have! Just sit or lay and watch roofs of Marrakech´ houses and Atlas Mountains beyond. This Riad is very nice, it has two parts, one with small pool, hammam etc and second - honestly i have not discovered. Staff is nice, helpful and smilling - also housekeeping staff - you cannot see this much often. Breakfast simple,...

I feel I cannot recommend this Riad enough. But I must admit the whole experience started rather scary. We arrived in Marrakech after midnight (two ladies btw) and the taxi driver stoped in the middle of a plaza and two young men that apparently were waiting for us graped our bags and asked us to follow them! We followed them...

A trio of us stayed at this Riad for a total of six days over two different stays. This was our first time in Morocco. The riad is in the heart of the old town. It's walking distance to some must see places such as the souks, koutoubia mosque and the big square. Momin the manager who greets you will...

Typical beautiful Riad. Stayed in the beautiful suite which is perfect for friends, family or couples. Staff were lovely, special thanks to Solomon and Jamal. Food was simple but nice, always served with a smile from the friendly staff. The Riad was positioned in the old town and it took about 15-25 minutes to walk to the medina, depending on...
