Omar was the perfect host during our stay in Marrakech. Omar and his staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful before, during, and after our stay. Omar contacted me beforehand to arrange airport transfer (recommend you do this), and helped with other logistics of our travel elsewhere in Morocco, including looking after our additional luggage as we headed into the desert.

The riad is tucked away in the maze of the medina, near the centre and therefore close to (lots of) shopping and restaurants. The riad is amazingly tranquil given the hustle and bustle outside, with nicely presented comfortable and clean rooms. The little pool and roof garden offer opportunities to relax, but the real reason to stay is out the front door.

When first arriving, recommend taking Omar up on his offer to arrange an airport transfer. The riad was easy to find once we’d arrived, but wouldn’t have wanted to be dependent on a map the first time.

OK, bad news up front: good luck finding this place on your own. It is down a mysterious alley, just go right, left, right, left (through the dark), right, left, then left. I've submitted a revision to Google Maps to put it in the right place, though it's shown correctly (absent the alleys) in TripAdvisor's map. Do call ahead and the riad will arrange a porter for you to carry your luggage and direct you to the place.

Good news? Lots of things. Very well located, once you know where it is. Classic riad experience, with only a few rooms in the place, wonderful hospitality, nice rooftop terrace, good breakfast, and helpful hosts, including Omar, who will arrange tours for you if you'd like.

Quiet and low-key. Many little nooks to sit and relax outside your room.

Room tip: Would choose first floor over ground floor.

Darhani

Marrakech

Great Location, friendly staff

I spent 4 days at the Darhani with my daughter in May 2018.
When we first arrived the taxi driver dropped us at about half a mile from the Riad, we could not find our way, called the RIAD and within minutes a lady, which i cannot remember the name was there to meet us and walk us to the Riad. On our way through the alleyways, which is more like a labyrinth if you are not used to it, i questioned my daughter if once we leave the Riad whether we would ever find our way back. Surprisingly we went out a few hours after arriving and returned late at night with no problems, the alleyways are a bit dark and intimidating for the first time tourists, but we never felt unsafe.
Abdul and Omar were lovely people always willing to help. The roof terrace is lovely,and the Riad itself, altought a bit modest, is a very quite place to rest after a long day or night walking through the Souks and the Jemaa el- Fnaa.
It is right in the heart of the Souks and a short walk to the Jemaa el- Fnaa square.
A faster wi-fi connection would be great as i spent long time doing work and needed a fast and reliable connection which was almost impossible.
I would stay here again in a future visit to Marrakesh.

First time tourist should be aware that the mobile network signal is very poor, and google maps most of the time wont work, we did manage our way around with google maps, but not actually using the data, simply looking for the destination on the map and then orientating ourselves by our position of the gps on the map.

Please be aware that you will be a prey to many people there on the street who will notice if you are not familiar with the area or finding your way, they will try to direct you or offer to walk you to the place for in the end to ask for some money, and in some situations we found it quite uncomfortable even with young kids.
Be careful with people asking for highly inflated prices for you to negotiate it, we were tricked a couple of times but learned the hard way, check the currency conversion for you to figure out the approximate value of any item you wish to buy, for me it simply does not work not having fixed prices and i believe this people should realise that they live from the tourism and are doing more harm than good not being honest.

Tips:
1-If someone approaches you to help you on your way, keep walking away and say you know where you are and do not want help,they will be

We stayed a total of four nights, coming and going, on three separate occasions. It is a quiet, modestly appointed riad. Breakfast is good, including the best coffee we had in our first two weeks in Morocco. There is a nice rooftop terrace that we discovered only after our third night there. There is a pool that we did not use. Omar is a very friendly and potentially helpful guy, when he is there. They will store luggage for you, though it is not clear that they have a locked space in which to do so. You must follow a narrow winding path to find the riad. A sign would be helpful. Pretty good location inside the medina. It’s a ten minute walk to Dar al Bacha, an access point to the medina, and a place to grab a taxi. About a 15 minute walk to the main square.

Dar Hani is centrally located, less than a ten minute walk to most everything in the center of Marrakech and a very easy walk to father-out sites, such as Jardin Majorelle or the Badii Palace. The staff is exceptionally helpful and welcoming. They will coordinate any excursions you are looking to take and share helpful tips throughout your visit. The breakfast is delicious and the riad is clean and quiet, which is especially important after having been in the city all day.

Room tip: The higher floors will be a little quieter as the bottom floor will reflect the noise from the courtyard.
