“Perfect hideaway in the busy Medina”
Reviewed 7 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Dar Soulahfa was perfect for our family of 4. Loads of room, came with all required amenities. Stuart the owner provided us with great help and tips to set us up for our first trip to Marrakesh, this made our holiday a great success.
The plunge pool was really pleasant after a hectic day on the busy streets.
The property was surrounded by great restaurants (BlackChic in particular was delicious)
The 2 ladies who keep prepare your breakfast and keep the house tidy were very welcoming and friendly. The kids loved them.
The Wi-Fi was better than mine in the centre of Dublin so no complaints there.
Roof terrace was also very comfortable and a great place to chill.
Recommend to all if you want the full old town experience.

Thank you for writing such an interesting and positive review, I am delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay in our little riad, I very much hope we get a chance to welcome you back next year.
We do not heat the little plunge pool and it can be a bit chilly during the winter months but in the heat of summer it reaches the perfect temperature to keep you wonderfully cool.
I hope our listing makes clear that we let the house on a catered basis with a cook available to prepare any meals our guests wish to eat at the house, there is no obligation to eat in and there are countless restaurants and cafes just moments away. The kitchen is not off limits and can be used to make drinks and snacks but it is not set up for self catering stays. However I have noted your suggests and appreciate you passing them on.
Many thanks, once again, for choosing Dar Soulahfa.

“Lovely Riad close to the Square”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

As the title says... lovely Riad just 10 minutes from the square, down a lovely street with lots of little places to eat. 3 good bedrooms and the added bonus of a bath tub, which is so hard to find in most riads. Would definitely return with my 2 little ones, excellent value for money.

“Great location”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

This is a good place to stay if you want to be in the medina, about 10 minutes walk from Jemaa el Fna, yet in a quiet place - except for the call to prayer! Stuart answered so many of my questions, I think I was a real pest, but he was gracious about it. He arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport which was really helpful. We had asked for dinner the night we arrived and it was delicious. Breakfasts were adequate. My daughter took some little jars of flavored honey to give to people and she gave some to Atiqa and Kadijah who were just delighted with the small offering. (We did tip them, too, but the honey brought them real joy it seemed) I'd love to give this 5 stars for the service, but the paint needs a bit of freshening and really detracts from the otherwise wonderful spot.

Many thanks for the lovely review, I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay and made the most of the fantastic location. Atiqa and Kadijah will be very pleased to receive such glowing reports.
We do have an ongoing maintenance programme and see that the house has it's paintwork refreshed every 18 months or so and it will be done again ready for the Spring. The traditional open courtyard at the centre of the house is a wonderful feature but does mean the walls in this area are exposed to the extremes of the weather but many thanks for the comments which will be addressed.
I very much hope you will return, there will always be a very warm welcome awaiting you, and any future guests, at Dar Soulahfa.

“Beautiful Riad full of character and well furnished”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

This Riad did not disappoint - well furnished, plenty of character, lots of space. The plunge pool and the terrace (including your own Berber tent) were a blessed relief from the hot hot sun at this time of the year. Lots of interesting areas to explore. We were spoilt because there were only two of us but we think this could accommodate a family easily. Little touches like a decent Dvd, music and book collection were a pleasant diversion if you pop back from walking around the Medina to the lovely peace and quiet of the Riad. The cook/housekeeper were a joy - very friendly and flexible around any breakfast or dinner requests. The only reason we couldn't give this five stars was the lack of self catering facilities in the kitchen. Not a huge issue as we were a stones throw from the Numerous cafes etc of Marrakech and we had the option of breakfast and dinner being prepared for us. A bonus is the option of a guide/driver for day trips we recommend the Atlas Mountains but personally the coast trip wasn't our cup of tea. Very friendly engaging driver/guide - highly recommended all round - Riad good value for money. Owner provided regular and useful communication from booking right through to departure.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review, I'm sure it will help future guests when choosing a place to stay in Marrakech.
I am sorry to miss out on a 5 star review, it is true we let the house as catered accommodation, I will look at the wording of our advert to try and make this clearer and apologise if this detracted from the enjoyment of your stay.
As you found, the house is perfectly located to benefit from countless restaurants and cafes just a few minutes walk away and our wonderful cook is happy to prepare any meals guests would like to eat at home. Atiqa produces the most delicious Moroccan dishes and takes care of everything from shopping to washing-up leaving everyone free to make the very most of their time in this wonderful city.
A very warm awaits should you visit again.
