Really loved this place. A few streets away from the busy markets / centre of the medina yet the property was so peaceful.

The plunge pool is an excellent way to cool off after a morning on the souks and the terrace is v comfortable. Staff v attentive and helpful but discrete.

Would really recommend it - though tall people watch out for the bathroom door on the ground floor!

“Lovely respite after the bustle of the medina”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My family and I stayed for 6 nights at Dar Soulahfa (2 kids, ages 8/11) after touring Morocco for 3 weeks. The dar is lovely and tastefully decorated in traditional Moroccan design. After looking at the photos of the building while it was being reconstructed, I truly appreciate how much effort it took to renovate the structure.
The housekeeper and cook were always warm and welcoming, especially with our kids.
It was always a great pleasure to come home to a quiet retreat after touring the energetic markets. The location is perfect for touring the medina and venturing into the Ville Nouvelle.

The only negative concerns the breakfasts. The ladies, even after requesting, would not come to the house any earlier than 8:30-8:45, with breakfast sometime around 9 AM. Also, the breakfasts were generally very basic compared to the other dars and riads we stayed in throughout our three weeks in Morocco.
We did, however, really enjoy Dar Soulahfa, and would recommend it to others visiting Marrakech.

Management Response
23 May 2016
Hi Lisa
Many thanks for your review, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and took full advantage of the fantastic location, I am also pleased to hear that the staff continue to make our guests welcome, the ladies are always a big hit with any children who stay.
Things at Dar Soulahfa are very laid back and relaxed with breakfast usually served around 9 am, for early risers there are a myriad of cafes very nearby and also the opportunity to prepare hot drinks in the kitchen until the ladies arrive to prepare a light breakfast.
We offer an alternative to shared accommodation and do not have 24hr staff or extensive breakfast offerings, however you will receive a wonderfully warm welcome, personal service, and exclusive use of our little holiday riad.
We very much hope you will return to visit us again in the future.

“How to stay in Marrakech properly with children”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Why people go to hotels any more is beyond me. Stuart has a splendid Riad, centrally located with good staff and comfortable beds. He responds quickly and appropriately to queries and the Riad is as shown on the website. Atiqa is a good Morrocan cook and if you buy alcohol in the supermarket and eat in at night costs are very reasonable and the experience feels both bespoke and authentic. If you want a private experience in Marrakech, avoiding the global sanitisation of an up market hotel, I would thoroughly recommend Dar Soulahfa.

“Gorgeous Riad!!!”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

An stunning Riad hidden away down a series of alley ways . Incredibly peaceful yet just a ten minute walk from the Djemma El Fna. Loads of space over three levels , a refreshing plunge pool, beautiful furnishings , a roof terrace with tented area and tortoises. Atiqa and Khadia made us some amazing dinners and we had a fantastic breakfast each morning to start the day. Stuart couldn't have been more helpful before hand giving us lots of useful information and being at hand to help plan our various trips. You will not be disappointed if you book this Riad!

“Authentic Moroccan atmosphere, fantastic staff and perfectly located within the Medina.”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I along with our 3 teenage sons enjoyed a fabulous 2 week holiday in Morocco starting off in Marrakech with 3 nights at Dar Soulahfa which I have to say was fantastic. Stuart the owner was most helpful with the arrangements and provided excellent information which helped us as we explored the Medina. Najem who proved to be both reliable and friendly provided a transfer from the airport to the riad. His English and driving were both good.
Dar Soulahfa was located in a quiet little street with a short walk to the main square but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech life. The interior provides an authentic Moroccan atmosphere and we enjoyed our time spent in the riad just as much as when we were out and about. Atica the cook and Kadijah the maid were lovely, they looked after us so well and maintain the high standard of the property beautifully. My son's enjoyed the splash pool which was a welcome escape from the July heat and the roof terrace was both spacious and relaxing.
We enjoyed dinner at Dar Soulhafa which was amazing and is highly recommended. Out and about the Medina was a fascinating place and the riad is perfectly located within it. Najem is available as a driver should you wish to venture further and we booked him to drive us to Essaouira where we spent the rest of our holiday. All in all our time in Morocco and especially at Dar Soulahfa was a great experience with wonderful memories which I would not hesitate to recommend.
