My family booked out all of Dar Warda over Christmas. We were very pleased with the riad itself - very cute, clean, lots of nooks for lounging around, nice terrace, etc. The staff were all nice and accommodating as well (Faterah, Abdul, Abdel). We had dinner one night at the riad and it was good - not outstanding, but good...your average Moroccan meal with sufficiently tasty tagines and salads. (I found generally in Morocco that the meals tended towards average - really bad and really good were rare.)
Our one problem was that we had asked the owner, Isabelle, to arrange a car and driver to drive us to the desert and back after we left Dar Warda. This she did, but due to miscommunication among Isabelle, whom we originally arranged the driver with, Faterah, who was managing the riad while we were there, the driver and ourselves, we ended up in an awkward and unpleasant situation.
Long story short, once we were already en route, the driver balked that we wanted to go to Erg Chebbi, saying it was too far and he didn't have enough gas, and that we should go to Erg Chigaga. But he would only take us as far as Zagora.
We got through that little debacle (ended up going to Erg Chigaga), but then at the end of the trip there was another one over how much we owed the driver. We had paid Faterah a deposit for the driver (1000 diram), but the driver claimed he wasn't aware of this and insisted on the entire amount. Unfortunately we parted ways on less than ideal terms, despite the driver having been generally agreeable, helpful, and informative.
Innocent miscommunication or a game the locals play to get the most out of unsuspecting tourists? Who knows...but Dar Warda could do with stepping up the professionalism of these sorts of transactions.

The Dar Warda is a simple little riad in the north of the Marrakesh medina. It has four nicely appointed rooms on two levels around a lovely patio. It is very clean and quiet.
The staff are really helpful and friendly. I rate it excellent value for money. It was our first riad in Morrocco and I really didn't know how good it was until I tried other ones.
It is down a long and complicated "derb" (a network of alleys in a cul de sac) so it is well worth ringing ahead for the owner to meet you to collect your luggage (in a handcart!) and escort you to the riad.
The walk to the square is probably 15 minutes, but is very straightforward and you would have to try very hard to get lost.
I would certainly recommend it to couples looking for an atmospheric and traditional stay.

It was our first trip to Morrocos and we stayed at Dar warda, for 5 nights. Is a very small riad, nice and clean.
The rooms are decorated in traditional style, but comfortable. There is no TV or radio or even games.
I ask for transfer from the airport and they forgot, and the taxi drivers don’t now where the riad is. Despite of that, it went well.
It’s a very small and cosy riad, (not expensive). But in my opinion, after a busy and exhausted day in the souk we need something else more luxurious, with swimming pool , room service, spa, TV.
Try the Founduk , a very and trendy restaurant.

Lovely Riad hidden away in the back streets.

Most impressive facet was the service - nothing was too much for the manager and his staff.

We stayed in this hotel [which we found on tablet hotels website] in March and had a great time. A little oasis in the middle of ciaos. The service was impeccable and Mark [otherwise known as Abdul] catered to our every whim. Met some lovely other people in the Riad as well. All in all would highly reccomend anyone to stay here.
