This was my first ever visit to Marrakech, and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This is a traditional riad located in the souks just north of Jemaa El-Fna, about a five minute walk away. While you might not easily find it unaided on your first arrival, they were able to book us a taxi from...

The location of the Riad was very handy for exploring on foot the many secrets of Marrakech. The staff, especially Ali and the cook and the maid, were wonderful. However, the air conditioner in our room did not work and it made for miserable nights. I'd like to say that Catherine did everything possible to get it fixed, but she...

I have just returned from a three night stay here with seven of my friends.

We were all a little...

Great hotel! Very, very friendly staff! Helped us and made breakfast and dinner one evening. The only downside is that the physical location is a little confusing to get to--would recommend getting someone from the hotel to show the way.

Absolutely the best part of our stay in Marrakech! A beautiful place, filled with the friendliest staff I have so far come across in any hotel, anywhere.

I don't know that I can recommend this riad enough. It was perfect. The location is perfect, in the souk and easy to find after a couple trips in and out. But the real jewel here is the amazing staff. Mouna is a fantastic cook. Eat dinner here every night if you can. Ali is the friendliest person in all...

This very well located Riad certainly ticked all the right boxes for me. I came here in late October with two friends and enjoyed every minute of it!

My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend at the Riad Dollar Des Sables and wouldn't think twice about staying there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Dollar des Sables is a nice traditional guest house of 6 rooms ( 3 doubles, 2 twins and a very romantic Suite for two and can be transformed into a triple with an extra charge ). The ideal location inside the Medina ( 400 meters walk from Jema El Fnaa Square) allows you to explore the city easily. The Riad is located at the entrance of the main Souk,called "Smarinnne" and the famous Square "Jema el Fna" only at a 2 minutes walk. Upon arrival, we recommend you to book our airport pick up, especially by night , to avoid the fake guides; we can also meet you at the Square , or pick you up at the airport, for an extra charge (150 Dhirams :1or 2 guests . So don't hesitate to contact me , giving me your flight details so that I can arrange this service with my private driver.Our driver will drop you at jema el fna Square within 10 minutes, and we will be there to meet you. As soon as you get inside the House , you will be touched by the enchanting atmosphere of Riad Dollar des Sables. The whole staff is welcoming you with a smile, and a special attention : coloured candles, fresh roses petals at your feet, delicate flavor in the air and oriental music..Just to make you feel in the mood and comfortable.Passing through the corridor, you will discover the peaceful courtyard and its fountain made of traditional mosaics.On its terrace, Riad Dollar des Sables offers a relaxing and traditional Hammam ( run with wood) and massages for a very good price;First, you will be invited to share with me (Cathy) a sweet refreshing mint tea and moroccan pastries.As I'm living all year long in Marrakesh since 2006, I know quite well the city and shall be happy to share with you my experience , giving you all the useful information and good adresses to enjoy your stay .We shall give you a map to sign the main monuments to visit or restaurants around.
