Marrakech, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region
Dar Soulahfa nestles in the streets and alleyways that form the very heart of the old Medina of Marrakech. Ideally located in the most desirable area of the ancient town, this wonderful position makes it so easy to explore all this exotic city has to offer. The house has an abundance of traditional charm along with 21st century benefits such as air conditioning and heating. The private plunge pool is instantly refreshing and the large roof garden/terrace offers generous and private outside space. The staff provide a warm welcome, are delighted to have children staying and will do their very best to accommodate any request. Intimate enough for a romantic break for two, yet with more than enough space for a small group of friends and ideal for a family. Dar Soulahfa has been our holiday home for over a decade, we have magical memories of ou... Read more

Interaction with guests
I am very happy and enjoy speaking with guests on the lead up to their stay, I can advise on restaurants, cafes, bars, sights and attractions close to the house and those a little further afield.
I do not live in Marrakech so am unlikely to be around during your stay however we do have two lovely ladies who cook and clean at the house and can provide help during the stay.
We also use an excellent driver who will meet you at the airport and can provide taxi services while you are in town.
I can be contacted by email at any time.

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.

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...

Management response:

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...

About the neighbourhood
Dar Soulahfa is tucked away along tiny streets. A walk to the square, though only a few minutes, is packed with intrigue and fascination. Very near to the house is the Dar Si Said Museum and the Bahia Palace, but all the sights are within easy access. The streets are alive with traders, artisans, children and Moroccans going about their life. This is a real chance to immerse yourself in a very different culture. A stay at Dar Soulahfa will provide so much more than any hotel or resort.
Getting around
Dar Soulahfa is in a fantastic location which means everything within the ancient medina is within easy walking distance with many restaurants, cafes, bars and attractions just a few minutes away. For sights a little further away we work with a driver who is happy to be available throughout your stay.
A car is not needed and taxi transportation is very reasonable and much of the medina is not accessible by car.

How to get there
Airport: Marrakech Menara RAK: 8.0 km
Railway: Marrakech: 5.0 km
Ferry: Essaouira: 180.0 km
With constantly improving travel links with the UK there are several airlines to choose from. Royal Air Maroc offer convenient flight times and ever decreasing costs. The real bargains can be had from Thomsonfly, Ryanair and Easyjet, though this may require a very early start you will get the whole of your first day in Marrakech.
All of the major car hire companies are represented at the rapidly developing airport but unless you are heading further afield the 10 to 15 minute taxi ride to the city centre is far easier. Driving in Marrakech is best left to the experienced.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, Water Park Nearby, Nearest Beach: 180.0 km.
