Where should I start?

Jean Peres, the owner of the Riad is amazing. I emailed him at least 5 times before our arrival and he always replied within a few hours.

The Riad has excellent staff: attentive, welcoming and helpful. They even catered an early breakfast for us as our flight back to the UK left very early.
The Riad can organise transfer from and to the airport for 300 Dhs (return price). We were so happy that we took this option, as haggling for a taxi can be stressful and would not save you more than £5, not even mentioning that the organised transfer - compared to the "petit taxis" - would provide a much nicer car. If you still wish to organise your own ground transportation ask the driver to take you to "Palais Bahia" which is located 2 minutes away from the Riad. But good luck finding the Riad in the maze of small alleys.

Location is safe and convenient as most sights are walking distance (the Main Square and Koutobia Mosque 10 minutes away, Saadian Tombs 10-15 minutes, Palais Bahia 2 minutes, Palais Badi 5-10 minutes, souks 10-15 minutes). The staff at Dar One gave us excellent directions and a useful map.

The Riad has a contemporary style with traditional accents. It is a beautiful and relaxing space.We stayed in the Sirocco room and I can highly recommend it. For a little higher price you will get a private roof terrace with excellent views over the whole Medina. Looking at the layout of the Riad, the ground floor room could be quite exposed to other guests and quite noisy during breakfast and dinner, therefore I would not recommend it.

Breakfast is delicious but a little repetitive after a few days. It consists of mostly sweet dishes such as pastries, pancakes, yoghurt, honey and jam. This is the only thing that I would change in Riad Dar One. The freshly squeezed orange juice is delicious.

The price is very reasonable compared to Marrakech, therefore Riad Dar One is easily the best value luxury riad in the Medina. I initially considered one of the big brand hotel chains outside of the Medina’s wall but I was so happy that I opted for a riad as this is the real experience!

Thank you Jean and the whole Riad Dar One Team for making our stay perfect!

Room Tip: The Sirocco room does worth the slightly higher price as you will get a private terrace with breath-taking views over Marrakech.

We were so pleased that we chose this Riad as our first stop in Marrakesh. We had arranged to be collected from the airport then we were met at the car and taken through darkened alleyways into a beautiful sanctuary of peace and tranquillity. The decor and ambience of Riad dar One is fantastic, a traditional Moroccan feel with the modern standards of a 4 star hotel. Great breakfast to start the day and it was a great place to relax after walking around the mayhem that is Marrakesh. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff, we definitely recommend it!

Room Tip: If you have the room on the roof terrace, which is wonderful, be aware that you can not get Internet connection in your room however it is fine on the ground and first floor.

Will exceed all your expectations. We picked this Riad based on other travellers' reviews and it certainly delivered!
If you rely on Wifi, it's free and connection was very good in the main sitting area.

Much recommended and we wouldn't stay anywhere else on our next trip.

Room Tip: Only 6 rooms, so book early!

Tucked away at the end of an alley, this hidden beauty is wonderful on every level. The rooms are authentic, but modern touches make them comfortable (e.g. great shower, pressure so hard it hurt)

The dinner the riad prepared for our family was the best lamb tangine we've had, the starters of various vegetables absolutely delicious.

We have just come back from a long weekend in Marrakech, staying at Riad Dar One. We enjoyed our stay and we want to recommend Dar One. Frindly and professional staff, always willing to help.
