“Beautiful riad”
Reviewed 30 July 2010

We stayed here in July at the beginning and end of our morocco trip. We loved this riad - it is beautiful - the owner has done an amazing job of restoring this old building and there are stylish touches everywhere you look. The owner and staff were absolutely fantastic - they really helped us plan our stay in Morocco and made us feel really welcome. The breakfast was also the nicest we had throughout our stay (the orange pancakes are the nicest!)

It is very near to walk to the main attractions of marrakesh and easy to get a taxi when you want to go further out. We hired a car and then went to the mountains, to ouazazette and essaouria. We downloaded the sat-nav maps for morocco which was great around marrakesh city centre!

We have already recommended to family and friends.

I spent a lot of time looking for the ideal riad for my trip to Marrakech and Dar One definitely turned out to be the perfect place. The decor is beautiful with lovely touches like fresh roses in your room and luxurious bath robes. I had a truly relaxing stay here and the staff were friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend this riad and shall be staying here again when I next return to Marrakech.

Great place to stay, super attention to detail, very comfortable and well appointed rooms and good friendly service.

Breakfast was included. Featured the same traditional breakfast as every other place we stayed.

We had a unforgetable stay in Riad Dar One in the stunning beating heart of Marrakech. This ideal located Riad, did us feel at home from the very first moment at our arrival. The host and his staff gave us a very warm welcome and super service. Breakfast on the roof terrace when you want, flexible service and very nice decorated and clean rooms. The typical style with a modern touch. all the comfort you need, just as home...

What a fantastic establishment. The service was more than excellent. The staff are hospitable, cheerful, helpful, informative and attentive. The patron is available everyday and is more than happy to assist and make your stay more enjoyable.

Unfortunately our visit was in July where temps. reached the mid 40s. This means less outdoor time and more in-door time (mostly in the Riad) which leads to my point:

I think that better in-house entertainment is worth while especially during the summer months. So, If you're planning your travels any time soon bring your own entertainment with you.

Other than that Dar One exceeded my expectations.

Dar One is a santuary of peace and luxury in the middle of the loud and vibrant city of Marrakech. Situated in the midst of the hub-bub of the small and maze-like alleys of the centre of Marrakech, Dar One is a well protected santuary of understated luxury and elegance that only the French can achieve with real pannache.
My sister had booked the entire Riad for a special birthday to be celebrated with a mixture of family and friends, her choice could not have been better. Marrakech never fails to amaze with its difference and it's unexpected friendliness and ease of being for Europeans. Dar One was the icing and gold dust on a rich and succulent cake. The welcome which felt real and sincere, the information, personal and forthcoming without request was subtle and not patronising.
If you choose to stay do not leave without ordering at least one meal cooked in the Riad. I have never tasted food quite like it ,the flavours were extrordinary, real Morrocan cooking not to be missed under any circumstances.
The rooms were all comfortable and stunning with a mix of French and African decor, the roof top open to the heat of the sun and the lower floor cool and subdued from the heat by the rose petal fragrant waters of the plunge pool hewn into the rock. quite stunning
We will go again and we will go either back to Dar One or maybe to Dar White which we believe is the next project of Jean our host who made a very special occasion truly wonderful and unforgetable.

Our trip to Marrakech was for the birthday celebration of my very best friend, and gave us the opportunity for a fascinating but brief glimpse into the bustling, colourful and chaotic world that is old Marrakech. Dar One was the perfect base, especially when we worked out the straight road into the souks! We loved the plunge pool, the perfect way to cool off after a hot day shopping, and the staff could never do quite enough for you .

A memorable trip and a wonderful experience at Dar One.
