Stylish, Comfy Riad in the Heart of Marrakech's Medina
After our taxi drops us off by the Bahia Palace, our host guides us down the busy street, turning through a small stone archway and descending into a narrow cobbled alley. After three turns, amid the homes of local residents in Marrakech's Mellah neighborhood, we arrive at our final destination - Riad Dar One.
This six-room riad is impeccably and stylishly decorated. The scent of jasmine fills the air, and our host immediately offers us mint tea on the roof terrace as we get settled in for our stay. The Riad is an oasis in the vibrant and busy medina, and we are well cared for, plied with shopping advice, a guided trip to the Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains, restaurant recommendations, a delicious rooftop dinner, and plenty more mint tea. Our hosts even walk us to our restaurant the first night to ensure we don't get lost in the maze of the old city.
Everything about our stay at Riad Dar One is effortlessly executed, and the warm hospitality of each member of the staff makes it an absolutely unforgettable place to stay in Marrakech.
