Our family with 4 teenagers had a lovely stay in this Riad. We were welcomed with mint tea after our overnight train from Tangier and felt we had arrived in heaven. We were able to navigate our way around the ancient medina with the help of Ali's hand drawn map and guided walk the first morning. The splash pool cooled us off tremendously in the evenings when finished exploring for the day. We would highly recommend a stay in this friendly Riad.

The service we experienced at Dar Nimbus was excellent, everyone was so incredible lovely and helpful and made our stay in Morocco so much more enjoyable. We would go back there in a heartbeat and for the first time ever while I've been traveling, we were actually sad to say goodbye!
We stayed in two rooms, initially the room on the ground floor which was a two bedroom suite. Our room was HUGE and we had a great bathroom, which we shared with a friend. We stayed on the top floor in one bedroom suite on our last two nights, as our friend left earlier than us and this was just as fantastic. Large rooms, great air-con and good bathrooms and showers.
The location is in the Old Town in Marrakech, inside the walls and is walking distance (about 20 minutes) to the Souks and the Medina. There is a number of shared lounge areas in this area which you can sit in to do your emails (if you have a laptop - there is free WIFI) or read your book and a plunge pool for those super hot days. It was a great place to just chill, which is a nice change when you're traveling and staying in Hotels.
The best thing was the food, breakfast is relatively basic, but if you choose to have lunch or dinner at the Riad one day, it is divine. We bought our own wine, which was no problem for anyone there.
We had one of the massages they offer here and this is the only thing I wouldn't recommend, as my masseuse took three phonecalls during my half hour massage and basically just rubbed oil all over me and through my hair, so I would recommend going outside the Riad for a traditional moroccan massage if that is something you want to do.

Room Tip: I think some rooms don't have air-con, so make sure you request this, but there website has a good explanation of each of the rooms.

We have just returned from a superb last minute holiday staying at the Dar Nimbus Riad. What a find!! The website for the Riad is excellent giving all the information a traveller could need. Our transfer from the airport to the Riad was all arranged and even though we were delayed getting through passport control (travellers be warned Marrakech airport is a nightmare!) our taxi was ready and waiting. Ali from the Riad met us from the taxi and walked us through the narrow streets to the Riad. Our room (Julie Gallery Right) was clean and quiet with a lovely en suite bathroom. Water was provided in the room together with excellent air con and bug zapper if needed. The whole Riad is very relaxing; we enjoyed time on the roof terrace, cooling off in the tiny courtyard pool and sipping mint tea. Fatima's cooking is excellent and we enjoyed meals at the Riad every evening. Breakfast is very minimal but delicious - travellers/visitors should expect a simple fare of bread, pancakes, jams, juice and coffee/tea, all served in the little courtyard. Ali's friendliness and willingness to show you from the Riad to the main street should not be underestimated - he's a real gem! We also enjoyed an excellent hammam and massage at the Riad. This needs to be pre-booked as the hamman needs to be heated well in advance - real value for money and very relaxing. The whole atmosphere is very home from home, no one imposes themselves upon you but are equally available and willing should you need anything. As a word of warning it might be advisable for visitors to request a guide service from the Riad - although we didn't avail ourselves of this I'm sure it could be easily arranged for a fee and would be most advisable as maps bear no resemblence whatsoever to the labyrinth and myriad of streets - visitors/travellers can become easily lost!!! All in all, a very excellent stay - I would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this Riad to friends and family.

We stayed in Riad dar Nimbus in May 2011. It was the first riad we stayed upon our arrival in Marrakech and then we moved after a few days in riads closer to the Djema el Fna.
Riad dar Nimbus was by far the best! It has a nice setting, the terrace is like quiet oasis of sun and flowers, the rooms and bathrooms at the first row of balconies were large and beautiful. The riad has hamam (steam room and massage service) I did not use but some friends did and they were very content with the service.
Ali took a good care of us throughout our staying, he was really nice and courteous and he made us feel really welcome. Ali showed us how to go to the Djema and to the Marjorele Gardens which are sort of close. He was a very pleasant host.
The breakfast was really good and the the friend we made there who had also dinners in the Riad told us the food was really good compared to the food we had when we dined in the town. Karim was also very nice to us.
When we'll go back to Marrakech this is where we'll stay, because we learnt now how to get there thru the streets of Marrakech even when late

Beautiful traditional riad - fantastic service from Karim and his team. Ate an evening meal twice - beautifully prepared and service at a candle-lit table in front of open fire. Ali proved indispensable in helping us remember the way to find the riad in the tangle of alley ways. Always ready with a welcoming smile.
Fantastic breakfasts - fresh orange juice, moroccan pancakes and fresh bread, freshly brewed coffee - wonderful!
