Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

When you choose to stay at Dar Hanane you will be transported from the crowded alleyways and busy street markets of one of the oldest neighbourhoods on the Medina into a secret world of beauty, simplicity and tranquillity. The Riad is situated near the Musee de Marrakech and the Medersa Ben Youssef, only minutes from the Souks and the Place Jemaa el Fna.

Guests will be charmed by the tree filled patio, the spectacular roof terrace, the elegant bedrooms, the comfortable salons and the warm hospitality of the smiling and attentive staff. Our English speaking Manager is also on hand to offer advice and suggestions to enable you to get the most out of your stay in Marrakech.

The Riad has four double bedrooms and two suites, all with en-suite bathrooms. The rooms are simple yet stylishly decorated with great respect for tradition and authenticity. Dar Hanane's tranquil patio features lush plants and intimate seating alcoves while the two lovely salons offer spacious seating and dining areas. The fabulous terrace of Dar Hanane is the highest in the neighbourhood and boasts spectacular 360 degree views of the Atlas Mountains and rooftops of Marrakech.

At Dar Hanane we offer our guests excellent in-house cuisine with delicious Moroccan meals freshly prepared by our cook, Aicha.

Discover Dar Hanane - an oasis of peace and serenity in the Medina of Marrakech.

"Service at Dar Hanane was very warm, welcoming and helpful. The room was beautifully arranged, simple, high luxury and absolutely spotless. The maps provided to guide us to the centre were very helpful. Dar Hanane was a superb refuge from the the hustle and bustle of the city. What we valued most was the light touch efficiency and courtesy which was always beautifully judged."

"...The Riad has all the character of the original structure but with a modern touch. The riad is centrally located and everything that the medina has to offer is within easy walking distance. The highlight of our stay was a dinner with other guests held in the dining room where there was a blazing log fire. The ambience was superb and the food and wine were excellent."
