I can not recommend Dar Oulhoum highly enough. The house is utterly beautiful and the hosts Bruno and Guy are helpful, thoughtful, friendly and fun. Breakfast on the top terrace admiring the rooftops of Marrakesh and after a days roaming through the dusty souks relax by listening to the sound of the fountain from the shaded ground floor lounge or...

This was the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Beautiful attention to detail and the MOST friendly and approachable staff.

Very friendly hosts and staff. Very nice designed hotel. Very good housekeeping. Bruno and Guy are very supportive. The riad is a good place to start or to finish a tour and to get an impression about the Medina. When you close the door and leave the Medina behind you, you are in heaven.

The proximity of the holy mausoleum, gave him a high respect. In the late nineteenth century, before the French protectorate, this place was that of a Spanish bank and a British legation. During the restoration of the Riad, existing telephone line upon arrival in 2000 of the weapons found at the bottom of the well and an enamelled plaque written in Arabic and Spanish testament to the power of the family that gave its name to the Derb.
