Riad Dar Ftouma
Ranked #248 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2014

The Riad is well located, 10 min from Jemaa el fna, 5 min from the souks in a good neighbourhood. Staff friendly.
The room was nice, even though a bit damp. The bathroom was quite big and well equipped.
The terrace was nice and the breakfast good.
I would recommend it.

The Riad was well positioned and the staff was very friendly. As a matter of fact, we were treated like family. However, I wouldn't recommend it to families with a baby or small children. The terrace was nice and the Moroccan tee was fantastic.

Mona,

je vous remercie sur cette avis fort sympathique, concernant les bébé dans les RIAD , c'est vrai que ce n'est pas judicieux, ce sont des maisons d'hotes et donc avec l'intimité que l'on peut avoir
dans une maisons de 6 chambres , je conseil moi-même au clients avec Bébé d'aller dans un hotel cela sera plus confortable pour eux et pour les autres hotes,
merci encore de votre venue

Staff was friendly and efficient, the room and bathroom were clean; the double bed had like a hole making the mattress tilt towards the middle and because of that my girlfriend didn't sleep very well The shower had hot and abundant water; the breakfast was average but good. Generally, we had a good stay and we recommend this riad!

The room called Marrakech had a bed bug infestation. I don't recommend staying in this room under any circumstances. Other than that, the hotel is relatively well positioned and kept and the staff is friendly.

Room Tip: Check your room and mattress for bed bugs before staying.

Merci d’avoir signalé ce problème, les punaises sont ramenées par les clients qui reviennent
De trip dans le désert et il y en a dans tous les Riads et Hotel.
Quand nous nous en apercevons, nous le traitons et nous les éradiquons, nous avons un contrat
Avec une société de sanitation, pour ces problèmes.
Actuellement ce problème est réglé.

Dirt fell through the ceiling on our first night so we woke up to a small pile of building rubble in our bed. We were moved to another room and which we appreciated but then the sink was leaking and this left a pool of water on the floor of the bathroom. Location is good but everything else was average. I think I expected more and our other accommodation in Morocco had been fantastic. Do not stay in the Marrakech room unless you fancy waking up with a pile of dirt in your bed.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the Marrakech room.

Location around 10 mins from main square, a few alleys but all fine. Staff are very lovely as attentive. Roof terrace is really nice and the rooms were kept lovely! Mint tea on arrival which was lovely. A bargain!

When our cab driver dropped us off and started walking down tiny side alleys, I wasn't convinced about this place. Don't let that put you off, this is a beautiful, clean, welcoming Riad run by generous and friendly people. We didn't speak a word of French, but somehow managed to have conversations with the staff. They constantly made sure we were looked after and helped us out a lot by making reservations and booking taxis for us. I definitely recommend you stay for the BBQ one evening, it was brilliant!

In terms of location, this was definitely the place to be! About a ten minute walk from Jemaa el Fna and the souks, there were plenty of places to eat and shop. It was close to a beautiful spa offering hammams and massages. I would definitely recommend you consider staying at this wonderful place if you visit Marrakech!
