Wow what a wonderful Riad. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the Riad is close to all activities. The staff go over and beyond to help. The Riad is about a 12-15 min walk from the Jamaa El Fna but the photo map they provide you with makes it impossible to get lost. We stayed as a family and occupied...

When my husband booked the Riad, I expected it to be a normal small villa with small rooms and simple food. But boy was I wrong!! We were first greeted by the super super super amazing and friendly manager Noureddine who welcomed us with biscuits and mint tea (the best mint tea I've had)..It was late night but he was...

I don't think my trip to Morocco would have been the same if i didn't experience staying in Dar Nour El Houda. It was an amazing experience and i was very reluctant on leaving. We stayed in other hotels however the feeling wasn't the same. Noureddine and Asia were ever so helpful, after he discovered that i liked hot chocolate...

We stayed here for 7 nights. Our room was spacious, clean and cool. The staff were all amazing! They were available 24/7 for whatever you needed. They served fresh breakfast every morning on the rooftop terrace. It was just 15 mins walk to the main square. Absolutely amazing experience! We will definitely be staying here again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Nour El Houda is a chic and unique boutique Riad in the heart of the Madina of Marrakech. It is the former home of French contemporary artist Patrick Carpentier and is now owned by a group of British friends who fell in love with the place. The Riad is interior decorated to a high standard in cream and white. It enjoys an open courtyard with a large Olive tree and a plunge pool as well as a terrace with views to the Katoubia and the Atlas Mountains. Each of the four en-suite bedrooms have their own unique character and the entire property is decorated with Patrick's beautiful artworks. The Riad is located in the centre of the Madina, close to star attractions such as Ben Youssef Mosque and Madresa (5 mins walk), the Marrakech Museum (5 mins walk) and the Photography Museum (4 mins walk). Jemaa-El-Fna is an approximate 12-15 minute walk away and a map is provided to guide you. Taxis from the airport stop at Place Moukef (Kaat Benahid), a 4 minute walk away. Famous restaurants such as Le Fondouk, Dar Tazi and Restaurant Naima are all approximately 5 minutes walk away, but in our opinion the best meal is served within Dar Nour El Houda itself with a fantastic 3-course meal cooked by one of your hosts, Asia. Together with our Manager, Noureddine, you will be treated to attentive service where every guest is looked after with the utmost care. ... more   less
