    Room (other than lack of bathroom privacy).

    Bizarre event where we got locked in by the security guard one morning (he had gone to prayer and locked the door from the outside, thankfully we didn't miss a flight!)

    Staff was really friendly and helpful (especially the Big Guy, our favourite), but not pushy at all as it can happen in Morocco. They changed our room when discovered that air-conditioner wasn`t working and woke us up in the morning to catch the desert trip in time. Riad is very lovely, quiet and clean. You need to learn at least some basic french to talk to the big guy :)

    Location is very hard to find and arriving in the dark can be a little frightful. Be prepared to pay to some guides for showing the way. When you are already there, they very helpfully provide you with the self-drawn map :).

    The riad is a peaceful oasis in Medina. All the staff are very helpful and friendly (even if some of them don't speak English, but that's not a problem at all). I recommend the airport transfer and the food in the riad. They also have a lovely terrace on the roof, perfect for a relaxing evening with a glass of mint tea! To be clear - it's a simple, but comfortable and cosy place, good value for money. I would definitely recommend staying there.

    The shower in our bathroom was leaking, perhaps this could be fixed. Also there were some works going on on the terrace, but I guess that's inevitable.

    Beautiful riad, it's clean, lovely staff, good wifi, free breakfast.

    It's quite hidden within the medina so at first was hard to find

    Lovely quiet riad, beautiful traditional interior decor, the staff were very sweet, long chats with them up on the rooftop, an oasis in the midst of the chaos of the medina

    This riad is hard to find - be sure your taxi/driver takes you right to the door, as it's down a quiet alley way. Booking a driver with the riad from the airport is well worth it

    The staff was very friendly and gave us juice upon our arrival when we filled out the hotel forms required by Morocco. The breakfast was more than enough to eat and consisted of breads and jams, etc. It does get very hot, but the rooms have individual AC that works well and there is a shaded lounge area on the roof for relaxing.

    The rooms have the bathroom attached to the bedroom in an open plan except for a half-wall so privacy is next to zero. Go with someone you are comfortable with! Also it is very difficult to find. We spent about an hour walking the medina looking for it after we had already checked in and left. For anyone staying here it is number 38 which it doesn't say on this website currently.

    The Riad is really worthwhile staying at. The staff Members are adorable. It is a great place. No doubt.

    The location is really hard to find. No signs. Nada. We were then led there by youngsters that then wanted 100 Drh (10 Euros) for a five minute walk. I believe they should really work on sign signage.

    We arranged pick up from the airport which worked well - it saved time and hassle and we were met on arrival and taken right to the door of the riad. Siham and her staff were pleasant and very helpful throughout our 4 night stay. We booked a day trip to the Ourika Valley and we also had two dinners at the riad which we thoroughly enjoyed. (They did not mind us taking our own bottle of wine to drink with our meals.) The riad is located within the northern part of the Medina about 15 to 20 minutes walk from the main square. Siham will give you a map which is helpful but be prepared to get lost (very lost!!) the first or even second time you try to find the Square! All the signs lead to to different directions and all the locals want to take you a different way (usually past their family shops!) - just smile, keep going on your own and eventually you will get to your destination! Once we found the most direct way we stuck to that as all the streets and alleyways in the souks go past stalls and shops selling all the same things it was easier to use the same route through! But be aware that after 8.30 some of the doors to the souks shut and you will need to make a detour! This was quite scary on our first night - but we found the locals were honest and the alleys were safe - you might have to give a few dirhams in payment to your guide but we never felt threatened and once we had walked the route a few times it was not a problem. You could stay in a riad nearer to the Square but we found the Dar Nael was perfect for us as we found the location to be more peaceful than being any closer to the main Square. Our room was clean and adequate for our 4 night stay with clean towels provided every day. The rooftop terrace provided a peaceful setting to sit and enjoy a view across rooftops to the snow capped Atlas Mountains beyond.

    I cannot honestly say there was anything we did not like about our stay at Dar Nael. Yes, we got lost on our way to the main Square, yes this riad is hard to find but this is Marrakech and possibly every riad here is hard to find and everywhere you stay you will get lost - that is all part of staying within the Medina!!! We didn't like our pillows on the first night - they were very hard! We mentioned this and adapted our own 'pillow' for the second night! On our third night we came back to find we had been given soft pillows! Top marks to the staff for their consideration. There was nothing else we did not like!!!

    In a quiet part of the medina, no street noise! Very relaxing atmosfeer, good breakfast, friendly staff.

    Place might be a bit difficult to find, but that's with every place in the Medina. The self drawn map they give you is not ideal so for better orientation make sure you have a street map for yourself (google maps will do).

    really quiet, nice staff, good room

    The riad position is really difficult to find and a single woman alone it is not the best one.

    We appreciated the opportunity to experience the culture by staying in the medina, walking the streets the short distances to the souks, the landmarks, the great plaza. Even getting temporarily lost in the beginning of our stay contributed to our understanding of the community behind the medina walls. Our room at the Riad Dar Nael was comfortable and spotless; the staff were hospitable and helpful, and we liked the authenticity of our residence, especially our "home" dinners. Those were superior to any we had in restaurants or on the plaza, and beautifully served in the central courtyard. A wonderful stay, an excellent value.

    Cozy hotel for a couple. Quite and a bit secluded location, which is quite nice. Walking distance to most part of marrakech old city

    Kinda hard to find first time we arrive. But with the map provided by the hotel staff, nothing to worry about!

    staff were excellent and so was the breakfast that we had on the first day. good to have access to wifi

    we had booked to stay for 7 days but we had to asked to be moved as the bedding and linen were very old, heating did not work (we went on the 3rd jan). at first siham said we will be charged if we moved but I explained that the riad was not as decescribed on the internet so she moved us to the their other riad which was nearer to the square. riad al-tahrin. at the other riad every thing was fine except the breakfast which was the same but worse still it was not bread and pancakes were not fresh at all and more like chewing leather. coffee was put in a hot flask from 8am so if you over slept and came down at 9 it was luke warm.

    The place is quite difficult to find but it's also part of it's charm. It is not a standard hotel in a European understanding but we liked the feeling of real moroccan way of living when being there.

    Breakfast served in the yard when it's really cold in the morning is not such a great idea. Maybe a common covered and heated area would be nice to establish? The hotel offered us the pick-up from the airport but the flight was delayed and the driver didn't wait. This brought us into some troubles with local taxi drivers, we lost 30 euro and LOTS of nerves, so it's better to check with the riad if the driver will really be there waiting for you.

    The hotel had offered a taxi from the airport, this was a must because it is difficult to navigate on your own. In the heart of the medina, very quiet with a roof terrace where you can enjoy the starry sky.

    Challenge to navigate in the medina, many will make money by helping you here and there, much bustle about shopping in the streets. It is not a place if you are inexperienced travelers.

    We were staying in the Essauira room which was perfect. The room was well equiped (confortable sitting arrea, large bed, spacious bathroom) and clean. It was quiet oasis in the noisy marrakech.

    The hotel is located in the nothern part of the medina which is not very tourist frendly place. It is very likely that a so called guide will help you to find the hotel or help you in other way and then ask reward of unreasonable price - they can be pretty unpleasant and sometimes aggressive.

    The staff here are really nice and always willing to help! We did a 2 day trip to the desert through the Riad and it was really good. We also booked a Hammam through them. The room was nice and always cleaned well.

    The location of the Riad is pretty difficult to find. We got lost every time we left the place! The bathroom is a little weird in the twin room (it's all part of the one room so privacy is non-existent!).

    The staff was really helpful and friendly. The Riad is a very peaceful, authentic and quiet place. Which is very welcome after a day in hectic Marrakech.
