2/10 Poor

I cannot really comment on the hotel because they decided to OVERBOOK and left me without a room. The staff that I talked to was very rude and pretty much didn't care where we went. They kept assuring me that I would not pay "additional charges" for the riad that they suggested. They didn't even have the decency to send me an email about the situation. I had to figure it out from the person they sent out to retrieve me from the taxi. I cannot express this more. Don't leave your decision up to them. I was on the other side of the world without a place to stay. Please seek another riad or hotel!!!!

2/10 Poor

Absolute nightmare!
We'd reserved 2 rooms through Expedia. On arrival, they were only expecting us to have one room, but said the second one would be ready in 20 minutes (2 hours later, it still wasn't). The one room that they showed us to had the electric socket hanging off the wall with loose wires sticking out. We pointed it out, they promised it would be fixed in 20 minutes (3 days later they hadn't touched it). That night we did get our two rooms, one of them lovely but both freezing cold. The next night they moved all our belongings from one room to an attic room (also freezing cold), without asking us. The bed had a spot of blood on the sheet! The final straw came the next morning, when they informed us the manager's family had all arrived to stay and we would have to relocate to another hotel. Expedia were great, they managed to sort out a refund for us and got the hotel to pay the taxi fare to a different hotel, which we booked ourselves. Even the taxi journey was a nightmare, the manager had us sitting in a taxi for 20 minutes waiting for the driver, who eventually appeared with another family and their luggage, and told us to get out of the car and find another taxi. All in all, a dreadful experience.

Great location in the old medina
Finding the hotel in the maze of narrow medina streets was an adventure - despite saying he knew where it was, our airport taxi driver airport gave up and dropped us nearby asking passersby to show us the way. We relied on tablet technology to guide us, but be careful as some websites have this hotel in the wrong place (but expedia has it correct). You should pre-arrange transport through the riad if uncomfortable wandering the streets and asking directions. The entrance door is easy to miss, but nearby shopkeepers will help you. The interior architecture of the central courtyard is stunning (and surprisingly cool in the middle of summer), the surrounding rooms are well fitted and comfortable (if perhaps a little compact - and beware of steps), and there is a rooftop terrace. Breakfast was simple but more then ample and very tasty and the rooms have air conditioning. There is free WIFI in the building (no password needed). Others have commented on the noise - we had no problem from other guests but I can see how loud voices from the courtyard would be heard from the rooms, as can the early morning call-to-prayer via loudspeaker from the nearby Ben Youssef mosque at 3.40 am (but this is part of the Marrakech experience). You will need to knock to get access to the hotel each time you return to the riad, and I found having some French useful with communication, but the staff are very friendly and helpful, and arranged a taxi at the front door at 4 am to catch my flight.

Nice little Riad in a heart of old Medina
The rooms are quite small but I think this is the case with most of the riads in Marrakesh. The rooms are placed on two floors around the inside courtyard (with a lovely fountain) so if other guesst come down for a cigarette you can smell the smoke in your room! The same applies to other guests having late evening or early morning meals/conversation in the courtyard - you will hear every single word in your room. Apart from that, the Riad is very beautiful and the staff if very polite and helpful. Dar Alhambra has a very nice terrace with a beautiful view over the city and Atlas Mountains.

Posizione ottima se si vuole vivere a pieno la vita della Medina; personale accogliente, gentile e sempre disponibile; la comunicazione risulta più che facile se si conosce anche solo l’inglese. Pulizia impeccabile e colazione abbondante. Tuttavia, la camera prenotata non corrispondeva a quella consegnata al momento del Check-in.

Ambiente auténtico y servicio muy bueno.
Muy auténtico, antigua vivienda de familia acomodada restaurada. Pequeño y acojedor (como una casa rural pero en el centro del casco antiguo). Personal del hotel muy amable, de trato entrañable e informal. Comida autóctona excelente.
