“Dar Khmissa is an oasis of tranquility in a hectic city, it felt like coming home”
Reviewed 5 May 2010

What I loved the most about Dar Khmissa was the superfriendly staff. We were playing chess in the lounge and without words mint tea with cookies were served. When I asked if it was possible to wash some clothes, they were not only washed the same day, with no costs involved, but also ironed and left in a neat pile on the bed. I had sore feet from walking around in Marrakech and without fuss a hot footbath was offered, even my feet were rubbed dry! What a service! What friendliness! I had a hard time leaving our "Marrakech home". My appreciation for Dar Khmissa cannot be bigger. Highly, highly recommended.

Can't say much as we stayed there only for one night, but room, service, free internet and breakfast on the big roof terrace - everything was great. The place is very nicely decorated (someone really put much effort in it). The best thing about it is the location - the centre of the Marrakech, only 5 min walk to the El Fna.

We stayed 1 week in the riad. The first 2 days we stayed in a small room on the groundfloor, which was not very nice, but without asking, we were offered another room, which was much better. The breakfast on the terrace was good (different kind of pancakes, bread, cheese, jam, honey, cakes, orangejuice, tea/coffee).
On the roof you can sunbathe.
The staff is nice - especially Hassan. It takes about 5 - 10 minutes to reach the riad from Djemma el Fna. We took the bus from the airport, which stops very close to the Djemma, and from there you can "easily" walk to the riad (ask different people before you start walking).

Thank you very much for your opinion,
it is always helpful to provide us with things that do not go.
This allows to change the house.
About your room, we decided to expand it down the middle wall facing the door, giving more space.
We will also improve the storage.
I propose if you allow to send you pictures of chamgements.
We are very sensitive to the well being of our guests.

We were only in the city for 3 days but I wish we could have stayed for longer in this beautiful Riad and it's wonderful owner, Vincent!

I have never felt more at home in another country as I did here, and I travel alot. One night it was raining and we didn't want to leave to get food, so Vincent ordered us a take away!! The atmosphere was great and as there are only 6 rooms, you mix with the other guests, natuarally.

Great for a group of friends or buisness people. Very central, about a 5 min walk from the medina. Very quiet, tranquil, with a beautiful terrace.

As we were hoping to do alot of shopping (to decorate a wine bar in a morrocan style), we were a bit worried about being ripped off in the markets, but Vincent took a whole morning out to help us out and take us directly to the best places for what we wanted.... for no extra cost! so kind!

a wonderful place made better by the wonderful Riad!!:-)

This is the second time we stay in this place. We love it because we are considered as friends. It's a real pleasure and cool. Very safe place with house keeper. Free Wifi (high speed, no password) is available. We a have passed 3 days at the villa (7km outside marrakeck) and 4 nights at the Dar. The tour in 4x4 at the Ourika was very excellent, michel is an excellent driver and very charming, listening, cool and friend. Don't hesitate.

The riad lies in a very comfortable position, very close to the main center of the town. Very easy to reach and good service offered to guests. Very familiar and nice furnished.
