Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

Darhani is an elegant riad in the heart of the Marrakech Medina.

It has a central courtyard and heated pool, and has been decorated and furnished to a high standard throughout, mixing the traditional with the modern to create a chic and original style.

Darhani, which means "house of tranquillity" is located virtually in the centre of the Medina, a few minutes walk from the souks and less than 10 minutes from the magic of the legendary Jemaa el Fna - a haphazard marketplace by day, but at dusk, transformed into a nocturnal carnival of performers, and the world's most amazing outside dining area, where you can just observe this fascinating spectacle, or sample the vast array of dining experiences.

"...The service we have received at Darhani has been second to none!!! Each and every member of staff has ensured our stay has been stress free and enjoyable - I was even surprised with a birthday cake as I returned to our room following my birthday treat of a hamman massage.
Sarah has been brilliant, her talk on the first morning left us fully prepared for our first encounter into the medina and got us through our week in marrakech.
Thank you to everyone at Darhani for making our stay enjoyable."

Hollie and Pete, 26th February 2010

"...Last but not least is the fabulous service received from all the staff. Thanks to Sarah for all the invaluable information, to Hannan for a lovely birthday cake, to Ali for crepes in the evening and drinks served by all the staff on request.
A lovely place to visit and one to recommend."

"Home from home...What a place!
Planned to stay 4 nights which soon turned to a week and vow to return! What a team of hospitality, cuisine, care and fun await you at Darhani - turning every whimsical idea into a reality effortlessly. Thank you, thank you! As for the Riad, every minute detail is taken care of and thought about - the perfect calm oasis to restore thoughts and rest before discovery of another characterful corner of Marrakech.
We will be back...mark my words!"

Anna and Husband, 4th January 2010

"We have had the perfect honeymoon in Marrakech! Arriving to champagne, roses and rose petals on our bed was the most amazing start. The Darhani has been a beautiful, restful place of tranquillity in a crazy city, and knowing we had it to come back after every adventure out was lovely. Sarah is a wonderful manager. All the staff here are wonderful, helpful and unobtrusive, the Riad is fantastically run!"

Andrew and Clive, 11th November 2009

"Darhani was/is an amazingly well run and maintained Dar. When we go back to Marrakesh it is on the list of places to stay and has made it to our recommendations on facebook and it takes a lot to get on there! the staff is helpful beyond expectation, the ambiance is great and everything in general is fab about it, particularly the location - you are at the edge yet in the centre!"

The centre of Marrakech is about 15 minutes taxi ride. We can arrange for you to be met at the airport by an English/French speaking taxi driver, who will drop you off and walk with you to the house in the Medina (5 mins). If you have a lot of luggage he will arrange for a "Chariot" to carry your luggage for you. The streets of the medina are too narrow for cars.
