If you ever visit Marrakech, you must choose Dar One Riad! Jean, Abdul (superstar) and the rest of the team were so warm, friendly and hospitable there was no request too big for them to fulfill. If you want to stay in a place that oozes luxury, class and comfort without breaking the bank.. this should be your first choice. Don't be put off by the exterior on arrival, what is behind those doors is absolute paradise. It would be hard to top this. I would definitely go back to Marrakech just to stay there again.

Dar One is a very stylish, contemporary Riad in an excellent location right at the heart of the medina, by the popular Palais Baiha. It is tucked away round a hidden corner and truly is a oasis of tranquility in the medina. Jean the french owner is fantastic and incredibly helpful, definitely take his restaurant recommendations! The Riad is also has a housekeeper 24hrs a day which can come in useful. There is a fantastic roof terrace which is lovely for breakfast. Overall, there is little else to say, the place is brilliant. Go!

We stayed at Riad Dar One for 3 nights during our honeymoon. Their service was excellent and all the staff were very helpful/informative. We definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Merrakesh. Its location is great... right near a big landmark, close to cabs, short walk to the main market.

We spent just 3 nights (June 13-15, 2010) in Riad Dar One and will recommend it to everyone considering visiting Marrakech. Location-wise it’s excellent – less than 10 minutes from the main square and moments away from Bahia Palace. It is AS beautiful as all of the photographs online. The staff were thoroughly professional and so incredibly pleasant. Top marks go to Abdel – he really was just so nice and wanted to do everything to make sure that everything was right. He was such a pleasant person to have around. The other staff went out of their way to make our stay there a memorable one…..and they’re all so good looking and stylish!
The food at the riad was top class – we had one lunch and two dinners there – on the terrace, under the night sky – three courses of home-produced food (the fish tagine was incredible, followed by the chicken tagine, closely followed by the lamb tagine!!). The fresh roses were a lovely touch too.
So, thanks Jean – you’ve got a fantastic riad in Marrakech but most important, a wonderful team of staff – and two incredibly relaxed dogs, but I guess if I lived here I’d be as chilled out as they are!!.
We’re so looking forward to a return visit.
Thanks again for everything
Brian and Phillip

Well what can I say about this place it is absolutely amazing as soon as u get out of the airport taxi your greeted buy the riads staff and they are the most friendly pleasant people ive ever come across in all my travels, so helpful I cant praise them enough.

The riad is spotless and very luxurious and has such a relaxing calm feel to it. Jean the owner is so sweet and so helpful and really made out trip unforgettable.

The riads location is awesome it’s literally 2 mins away from the main square and surrounded by gorgeous restraunts, spice markets and the souks.

The food is beautiful we did stick to bottled water just to be safe. The square was very energetic and can be very full on at times , people will grab you and try and get you to look at there stalls and the snake charmers and men with monkeys will try and demand money if u even look there way it was funny but they are intimidating. My advices just ignore and walk away.

Over all this place is such a gem and if in Marrakech again I would definitely stay at the riad dar one and would highly recommend anyone to also. It’s a stylish luxurious beautifully designed riad with an exclusive air about it. Completely 5 star!!!

We stayd at Riad Dar One for two nights with our extended family. We couldn't have chosen a better place than this. It's perfectly close to everything you want to see, it has a stylish and modern yet authentic interior design and last but not least a lovely team around owner Jean. We will be back for our next birthday trip!
