A bit difficult to find the first time, although after that it's a great place to explore the medina as everything is within walking distance
Very friendly and helpful staff A calm place to relax after spending all day in the hectic streets of Marrakech

more precise location map would be helpfull.
Comfortable rooms, friendly and helpfull staff. Tastefull, traditionall decoration which suited the ambiance.

Apart from the confusion that results from the lack of precision as to what distinguishes the different types of rooms, nothing, really!
It should be made clearer that, when booking a "standard room," we are in fact attributed a room in a distinct building, facing the main one, where the comfort level and general state of the room appears rather lacking in comparison. However, Omar, the manager, was most kind to us, and offered us a free upgrade. We thus had a very pleasant stay. A special mention to all staff members for their helpfulness, kindness, and professionalism.

The one (and only) slight niggle was the quality of the mattress / pillow. A bit too hard for me, making the bed a little uncomfortable, and I like a hard bed generally speaking. That said, my companion was comfortable enough, so maybe just me?
The riad in itself - decor and atmosphere were fantastic and very inspiring. The attention from staff and location were also excellent. Difficult to find in the first place, but then isn't everything in the Medina? Once you get your bearings it's really very convenient. Nearby shops and restaurants are great too. Delicious breakfast of fresh orange juice and local breads/pancakes plus coffee / tea. There were helpful guidebooks / glossy coffee table books available in the bedroom and breakfast room for perusal. A small but attractive pool in the courtyard must be a plus in the summer months. Dar Soukaina was recommended to me by a friend and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

It wasn't clear when booking that this is actually two riads. The larger riad has lovely rooms and courtyard. The riad we were in, Was down the alleyway and was small and a bit dingy, it felt a bit neglected...and the roof terrace was closed. One of the reasons to come to morocco in January was to be able to sit in the sun so we were really disappointed and we hadn't been informed of this. We could use the terrace in the bigger riad..also where breakfast was served....but it was a hassle to have our rooms in a different place.
Azziz the manager was great

The walk to the center of the medina is a bit far.
Tasteful, clean, and comfortable rooms with very hot showers. Everything is as pictured. The staff are polite and kind. Unlike other places we stayed in Morocco in January, they had heat. Overall a great value.

Dar Soukaina is a beautiful place to stay in Marrakech, a peaceful and noiseless spot to rest. It's very well located, the rooms are wonderful, the breakfast is a must and Aziz, Omar and the whole team working there, are really amazing, friendly and helpful people. We'll definitely repeat for our next trip to Marrakech. Thanks for the great time!

The only comment I would make, and its not really a criticism is that this riad really is a guest house to be used as a base for your adventures. There are no "hotel facilities" such as restaurant, bar, swimming pool etc. Having said that as long as you understand what you are booking its really great.
The location is right on the edge of the souks. Initial impressions can be a little overwhelming as the entrance is down a narrow lane and the lighting is not great. There was never any problem coming in or out and the locals were all friendly. This is a little oasis of calm in the chaos of the city, clean, comfortable and friendly staff.

The common areas (particularly the roof terrace) looked a bit old and tired. It wasn't that appealing to sit up there. It would be great if the breakfast included some of the beautiful fresh fruit from the region.
The room was perfect, the staff were very friendly, the location is great, on the edge of the medina, reasonably far from the main square (which was a positive!) Breakfast was sufficient.

This place has amazing staff who attend to your needs at any time - super friendly & very helpful. Our room was on the ground floor of the riad opening to a minimal, relaxing courtyard where we enjoyed our regular dose of Moroccan tea whilst recharging after a busy morning in the souks. For those wanting to be right amongst the action, but also escape the chaos each day, this place is ideal.

The air conditioning in our room was comfortable but I think it could have been better. Maybe with a little bit of servicing?!? But it was not a major show stopper even in the mid of summer.
The place was excellent conveniently located close to the central souks and a quick 15 min walk to the new town. The staff was very welcoming cheerful and helpful. The room was nice, clean and rustic - not too small and not too big! It was good and fairly comfortable for us. Would definitely go back next time! Highly recommended.
July 20, 2014
The staff were extremely gracious and accommodating in every way. It was a great place to come back and relax after exploring Marrakech. Our room looked out over the courtyard and was very comfortable for 2 people.
July 16, 2014
Found it a bit of a shame that breakfast was not served on the rooftop. However, I was there end of June/beginning of July, so maybe the courtyard was better in terms of temperature :)
I was very happy with my room, which was large and comfortable. The location was perfect, I thought: easily walkable to the main square and around the souks, but also very close to an area easily reachable for cars, so quick access to taxis, or pick-up point for tours. Not like if you stay somewhere really in the middle of the Souks, which would require you always having to walk a fair distance and finding your way to pick-up and drop-off points. Also just off of a larger street which was always a good reference point to find my way back after getting lost in the souks. They met me where my ride from the airport dropped me off, which meant I didn't have to find it on my own. Breakfast was good, wifi signal was great everywhere including my room, except on the rooftop patio. I loved the rooftop, even though I was pretty much always the only person up there. Also the pet tortoises were great :) The staff were friendly, always willing to sit and chat (which was nice as I was travelling alone), help with bookings, or serve breakfast earlier on days I was departing for a tour or for the airport. The shower was fine, no issues with pressure or temperature. The place was really great for the price. OJ and tea absolutely delicious :) I also really loved that there were books everywhere to take out and read: in the common areas as well as in my room. Cozy touch that I really loved. I would absolutely recommend going here, and would be happy to stay here again in the future! Also note that is is possible to pay on dollars or euros, even though on this site it says only in local currency.

Staying at Dar Soukaina was such a great experience! The helpful staff, tasty breakfasts, great location, comfortable room, huge bath/shower, fast wifi, beautiful design of the building were some of the reasons why we loved it there.

Beautiful little oasis in the middle of the chaotic souks. A beautiful Riad. I didn't want to leave!!
June 18, 2014
There was a smell in the bathroom. Little noisy inside.
Clean,with nice decoration. Helpfull staff.
June 15, 2014
The Riad is much more older and worn out than it seems in the photos - the terrace, which was one of the reasons we chose this Riad, was completely different, dirty and very small. Although the place is ok, we stayed in another riad in marrakech that was much better for just 5€ more... Good for just one night.

My wife and I booked a deluxe room, on entering our room my wife already doubted that it was a deluxe room as the deluxe were described as having fireplaces, ours did not have a fireplace. As it was hot we thought forget it we dont need a fireplace anyway and settled in. We learnt later that night that the AC was not working, there was nobody around at 11:45pm so we slept through it, believe me it was uncomfortable! The next morning asked the hotel staff named Aziz to fix it, he came to fix it a few hours later whilst my wife and I were looking at places to go in our room and he stated no no you rest i will come back when u leave. We insisted he could come in, he did not. We left to explore and came back late at night to find it still broken. Aziz argued with us that he came with a woker to fix it and we were in the room and so now we missed the chance and have to wait until tmro!! We argued and said we were happy to leave u insisted to coming later, made us feel bad for being in our room!! He did not understand that the AC should be working in the first place! After much fiddling around with batteries in the AC remote he agreed to change our room, to which was across the alley and was a much smaller room. We told him we paid for deluxe are u sure this is deluxe and he insisted it was. It definatley wasnt but we were done arguing. Once checked out we left our bags and went to the market returning later to catch our taxi back from the hotel to the airport, on arrival back we found aziz there - who did not say hello, did not even offer us a glass of water, ask us if we were happy with our stay or if we enjoyed ourself. Nothing. When our taxi arrived he informed us and we left without saying goodbye. Disgusting service. We paid almost the same as paying for the suite novotel which is much better- and which we have stayed at before, the only reason we stayed in a riad is for a different experience but Aziz rueined it for us.
Dar soukaina is well Located within the heart of the Medina just off a busy souk, and a 5 minute walk from the square. Although it is in the midst of the mayhem, it is quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was suffiecient for us, bread, juice, tea, eggs if you wanted them and a selection of 2 jams and butter. The rooms were made up once we left and were clean. Most of the staff was nice.

Pleasant environment, lovely courtyards. Nice attention to detail. Kitchen for guests (with fridge) was very useful. Pleasant and helpful staff.

The riad was absolutely gorgeous, with a cool courtyard which was an oasis from the nearby souks. Location was perfect for all parts of the city. The staff, Aziz and Rashid, were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and perfectly clean, and unlike anything you'd get in Europe. We loved the dipping pool and the pet tortoises. The transfer to and from the airport were seamless. We have literally not a single complaint!!
May 5, 2014
maybe the position from the center, no so easy, but this happens for some riad in medina area!
the room, the nice decoration, the breakfast, the relaxing area of the riad and for sure the very polite and the very available stuff! compliments

Medi was very welcoming and helpful. Beautiful building. A peaceful retreat from bustling City.
April 11, 2014
On our arrival the staff spent time explaining our location and how to get to the main attractions which was brilliant, as we then didn't get lost at all. We had organised an airport transfer which I think is a must as finding the place would have been so hard without any idea where it was! The interior was always very quiet and peaceful compared to the bustle outside, and it was always possible to get some tea while unwinding. It is a couple of streets away from one of the main thoroughfares, but we never felt uncomfortable walking this at any time of day or night. Breakfast was brilliant, but loads of it. I don't think we ever finished ours!
