We stayed here for two nights during a brief visit to Marrakech. It's nestled away within the heart of Marrakech's hectic Medina close to the big square famous for traders exhibiting all kinds of wares - including those ushering you in with henna tattoos, orange juice, street food, snakes and monkeys. It's certainly not the easiest accommodation to find --...

Such a beautiful little riad - prettiest place we stayed in in all our time in Morocco! Located right in the middle of the souks, and an easy walk from anything you might want to see in Marrakech. Every morning we would get a lovely breakfast which they tried to vary from day to day (thumbs up for homemade yoghurt...

We were welcomed in the traditional Riad with a cup of (sweet) tea and enjoyed the dinner afterwards. We felt at home at the Riad and the hosts were very kind. the Riad is liocated in the historic center of Marrakech in the Souks and (after some time) we were even able to find it ourselves.

The location of this riad is right in the middle of the medina. Accordingly, take them up on it when they offer to pick you up in a taxi. They also had dinner waiting for us when we got there.

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.
