I have no complaints about this Riad.
The whole experience of this Riad is one of comfort and welcome. The manager "Said" is a gem. Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable he made us feel right at home. The food is excellent and served with a smile.

A lovely small Raid. Wonderful atmosphere. Said was very helpful and made our say a real pleasure. It was my wife's birthday during our stay and the staff did everything to help make it memorable. Breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely and other meals are made to order. We had a lovely dinner with wine at a very fair price. I would certainly stay here again if in Marrakesh.

The wifi signal was sometimes weak, but with patience we accomplished all our online tasks.
Said, our riad host, was helpful, gracious and professional. Our breakfasts and two dinners were splendid, and the room was the best - comfortable and beautifully decorated. Dar Akal is also a great environment for meeting fellow travelers.

My wife and I are retired, in our mid-sixties and have travelled extensively. We stayed 5 nights at the riad Dar Akal and to say it exceeded our expectations is an understatement. It is a quiet and beautifully restored riad in the middle of the Medina, and Said, who speaks six languages, manages it extremely well. The accommodation was spacious and tastefully designed; the breakfasts and (Morrocan style) dinners were excellent and we dined in for four of the five nights. The service from all the staff was impeccable and the manager Said could not be more helpful - he is passionate about ensuring his guests have a brilliant experience while in his city. The riad looked after our every need from arranging our transport to the riad on arrival at Marrakech Airport, to transport from the riad to Marrakech train station on our departure. Look no further - we highly recommend Dar Akal. Richard and Fiona - Sydney, Australia

Bit of confusion with the initial booking, price etc which left me feeling a little apprehensive bearing in mind I was travelling to Marrakech alone with two small children. But bookings.com rectified this quickly and professionally.
Dar Akal is the place to stay in Marrakech if you want quality accommodation within the Medina at a reasonable price. Great location, within easy & quick walking distance from all the action, Souks and main square, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.

Said and his team is great! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The food is excellent. The interior design is exceptional. Thanks to the owner Patrick.

The staff were excellent and made you feel welcome right from the moment you were greeted from the taxi. Breakfast excellent on the roof terrace. Romantic Riad in an interesting part of the Medina. Spa facilities also available.

Having to leave! All I can say is when venturing out into the Main Square at night through the Medina ...make a mental note of points of references..Arches, trees etc...as once the souks close & its dark it all looks very different! A small tourch is also useful as off the main allyway sometimes the lights are out...These are not really problems just something to be aware of.
I liked everything! from the moment we arrived! Said made us feel very welcome with a collection from the airport & a 3 course meal waiting for us, our room was beautiful, which he also upgraded for us ...however I dont think you would be disappointed with any of the rooms (aircon/heating, hairdryer,bottled water) Beds really comfy, had one on the best nights sleep, you'd never guess you where right in the heart of all the chaos going on around you!... Roof terrace also lovely to sit in the evening with a glass of wine & watch the sun go down before heading out. Said is full of useful info and is happy to help with directions round the Medina...yes you probably will get lost..but its part of the experience! I cannot wait to go back to the Dar Akal.

The rooms are just beautiful, the location is very convenient and amazingly tranquil given you are around the corner from Place Moukef. From the time I arrived I was made to feel so welcome. Extremely impressed with the staff who were all very attentive and helpful.

Bed quite small in length and suite tends to be noisy due to mosque and activity on the small street.
Staff, architecture, breakfast!
December 18, 2014
A very beautiful suite in a pretty riad. The service provided by the manager was excellent (my elderly Mother was not well and Saeed was incredibly supportive). The food was lovely and the whole place was spotlessly clean.
December 3, 2014
Everything about this cute little Riad is perfect! Location (central, but safe and quiet), facilities (rooms, hammam, pool, terrace etc), food and last but not least, the staff (esp. Said)! Would recommend to anyone and will definitely come back!

Nothing to put here, loved it all
Loved it all, can't wait to go back. Did the recommended day trip to the hills, well worth it amazing views. Said will help with anything you want

What a fantastic welcoming, tranquil place to relax after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Said and his staff could not do enough to make us welcome. A truly fantastic place to stay.

Slight noise from the alleyway when the windows are open.
Beautiful rooms, nice rooftop pool, terrace, very peaceful, friendly staff, good value and tasty food (breakfast and lunch)

Everything was wonderful. Said was a fabulous host. He was very accommodating to a friend and her child who came to visit a couple of times, and went out of his way to be helpful and literally to guide us around. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautiful, the dinner we had one night on the rooftop was absolutely delicious and the place was tranquil, gorgeous and spotless.

My only complaints are that the location is a bit tucked away, so more difficult at night if you're prone to getting lost (which is definitely likely in Marrakech). The wi-fi was also extremely spotty from our room on the first floor, but this wasn't a big issue as we just walked outside to the lounge area to use the internet.
Patrick, the riad manager, was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He went above and beyond, was very welcoming, and made our stay delightful. The facilities are beautiful, clean, and aesthetically pleasing. The breakfast was also really delicious.

Location:easy to find and reach. Despite the central position it is in a quiet area. Service: the manager was extremely helpful, friendly and professional. And he supported us with everything during our stay. Place:quiet, relaxing, elegant, peaceful. Facilities: wifi, delicious food, nice little hamman, terrace with view and swimming pool.

We liked everything about Dar Akal. We wouldn't change a thing! The staff, especially Said, were so helpful and accomodating.
May 31, 2014
We loved everything about Dar Akal -- the outstanding service, the gorgeously restored riad, the location, the wonderful meals, the rooftop view, the hammam experience, a fantastic massage, excellent recommendations, insider tips - we could go on and on. Said and his team were top notch and we couldn't have asked for more!

Everything was perfect. Compliments to Said and his team.
