“wonderful, quiet and feeling at home”
Reviewed 20 February 2009

we spent 11 nights in this superb "maison d'hôtes" and we felt very comfortable during our stay. Marrakesch is a good place to roam around and to make trips to the sea side (Essaouira) and to the mountains. Our best taxi driver was nomade abdel, his phone number is +212 (0) 61 70 81 87. He gives a lot of explanations during the trip and is extremely courteous. And after each day, we were looking forward to come back to the Dar Asam, it was always like comimg home. The service in the Dar Asam is excellent and starts with a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Also dinner is excellent: you have the choice what you want to eat. We had an excellent stay! Thanks to all at Dar Asam.

Unfortunately our stay at Dar Asam left us disappointed. Although the room was pleasant, the service was not up to basic standards. After spending our first night something seemed to have gone missing from our room as well. I wouldn't suggest staying in the heart of the medina either because the times we were left finding the place at night were fearful. Taxis not knowing where to go and hordes of Moroccan's trying to guide us home only to all get tipped. Not pleasant. The most frustrating would have been when upon our departure the owner of the riad left her security guard to give/explain our bill which was to ONLY be paid in Dirhams. At NO point in our four day stay did we get notified of this so we were left almost missing our flight because we had to get a taxi to bring us to a bank in order to take money out and return to pay the guard. If you do not take credit card or euros (which most other riads do ) WARN the clients upon their arrival, not on their departure when you know they are catching a flight. Lastly, the riad was COMPLETELY empty when we were there, and without asking us, the owner put us up in the most expensive rooms (albeit it was nice) and charged us the highest rate. In such a situation, one would only expect the choice of price/room. And if we were placed in the most expensive room we would only expect a decent rate compared to the other rooms in the riad since it was in fact empty.
All in all. I would not recommend this place. there are many other places near the main locations but not deep in the medina.

we spent a week in Riad Dar Asam in June 2008 and had a wonderful time there.
The Riad is ideally located near the "souks" and not far from "place Jema el Fna" (less than 10 minutes walking).
The rooms are spacious and well decorated in a local but modern fashion and our bathroom was large, stylish and convenient too.
The breakfast is fantastic with "crepes", fresh fruits and fresh orange juice while you can enjoy the view on the "Koutoubia" from the roof terrace
I can only recommend this place for a short stay in Marrakech, the owner (nice french woman) lives there and is a very kind person

a satisfied traveller.
