We stayed the first two nights here. I found it in Internet, it looked nice and it was! The booking and pickup from the airport worked perfectly, Cathy, the charming owner and Abdel, the friendly housekeeper ( my wife says, also charming!) made us very welcome.

They did such a great job of creating a welcoming environment, and bringing all the...

In the middle of exciting Souk, you find this authentic place full of peace where Cathy, its young owner,gives you all the tips you need to explore Marrakesh and beyond. Mouna's cuisine is MUST try:not only traditional marrocan dishes, but also simple dishes like a soupe, for your tired stomac from heavy food. You will be impressed how delicate it...

I choose to stay at this Riad based on various reviews I had read on this website and other various websites, and was not disappointed. The Riad is located a few minutes from the main square in the Marrakesh, and is in the heart of all the souks. It is a little difficult to find, but having said that, while...

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.
