We have just come back from 5 days in Marrakech, where we stayed in the Riad Dar Al Assad in the old medina from 9th April to 13th April. The taxi brought us to the Medina main square and a porter picked us up from the car to take us through the busy small streets to our hotel. The moment we entered Dar Al Assad we knew we had made the right choice as this is an absolute gem of a place. We received a beautiful room on the first floor, you do not get a key for your room, which is not necessary anyway, as you feel you are in somebody’s private home; there are 5 rooms all in all for guests and various areas to sit and either read, watch TV or meditate. The Dar Al Assad is a beautiful oasis of calm and peacefulness and its stunningly tasteful interior makes you want to live there forever. The rooms are all individually decorated and the bathrooms are very modern and stylish. The roof top terrace is a wonderful outside space to chill out. When we arrived we were greeted very friendly and received a fresh orange juice to cool us down. Later in the afternoon we saw another couple receiving a full Moroccan dinner, which you can order with the lady of the house. It looked very inviting and made us look forward to our breakfast. The breakfast turned out to be amazing. Fresh fruit, self-made delicious yoghurt, various freshly baked breads and pastries, various homemade jams, of which the strawberry jam is just to die for, and teas and coffees were awaiting us every morning the moment we came down the stairs. Nothing is too much for the lovely people working there to make sure your stay is a happy one. After a whole day and evening out in the medina you just feel privileged to come back to Dar Al Assad, especially when the whole place is bathed in a golden light from all the beautiful decorative lamps. We have taken so many photos of it, you could start thinking it is a little museum in itself. One thing is for sure, we know we will come back to Marrakech, but only if we can again stay in Dar Al Assad.
