Not much to add here, as we found all the positive comments here to be completely accurate. Loved our stay and will return.

Room Tip: We stayed in a couple of rooms, and "Dune" was our favorite for it's size and bathroom...

We stayed here for one week in the Sirrocco Room on the roof. The Riad was magical and relaxing. The staff were great and the meals wonderful . Even when we accidently tried flooding our room they were helpful and forgiving. Being off the Terrace was good and convienent. Marrakesh itself is an acquired taste. The zooming motorbikes, constant haggling and trying to find a clean place to eat is a bit of a challenge but worth going at least once in a lifetime.

We planned a trip to Marrakech for 10 people for my boyfriend's 40th birthday, and booked Dar One on the basis of the very appealing photos on the Riad's website and the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. The property owner, Jean Peres, organised everything for us, all requests were dealt with quickly and efficiently, and results were perfect; the success of the weekend is owed to Jean.
The staff, Abdel and Khalid (and the kitchen and cleaning staff), were also excellent, they catered to our every whim. Food was amazing, breakfasts included in the price were great, lunches of mixed salads with meats and koftas were arranged for each day either taken on the roof terrace or main courtyard; so much food, at excellent prices. A special dinner was organised for the evening, with excellent tagines.
The rooms are individually designed, and have a running theme of cool and contemporary with nods to the traditional elements of Morroco. Water, hairdryers, towels, shampoo/shower gel in all the rooms - definitely luxury hotel standards.
Transfers and taxis, these were all organised by the staff at the Riad, we all felt safe with the drivers, and were given an idea of the cost of the journeys.
Marrakech, the Riad is only a short walk from the main square, and also a short walk from Les Bains des Marrakech which Jean recommended (and organised for us) for Hammam and treatments, it was amazing. Entering the Riad through the private entrance from the crazy main square was a wonder each time.
For fear of repeating everyone else's reviews, the Riad is amazing, Jean and his team do a brilliant job.
We will definitely be visiting Marrakech again and there is no doubt we will stay at Riad Dar One.

Most people would think of me as anal and I would have to agree. But try as I might, I couldn't find anything wrong with this riad. It was an oasis amid the madness that is Marrakech. As a matter of fact I would have preferred to not leave the riad at all but my travel companion (unfortunately) had other plans.

There were two MINOR flaws maybe: the lighting in the bathroom is seriously dark (which goes well with the atmosphere of the place though) and the birds use the chair pillows up on the roof terrace to go about their business which isn't really what you want to look at first thing in the morning whilst waiting for breakfast. Unfortunately, turning the pillows over doesn't help as they are equally stained on both sides.

Other than that: PERFECT!
