What I liked:

Our host was so extremely helpful and had great advice on where to shop, eat and how to get around the city generally, The place was quiet, and we got lucky and had the entire riad to ourselves!

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

Hotel Description

There is perhaps no more authentic way to see Marrakech than to stay in a riad, a private house in the medina (the old town) that faces inward, organized around a central courtyard. Dar Warda couldn’t be more intimate—a mere four bedrooms—nor could it be less like a hotel, or more like a private residence.

Riads are walled in, and often, as in this case, accessible only by a derb, an alleyway too narrow for cars to pass, and are thus insulated from the noise and bustle of the city’s streets and squares. And whatever charm Dar Warda may appear to lack from outside its walls, it makes up in spades once through its heavy century-old wooden door. The inner courtyard with its bubbling fountain is the centerpiece, and the social hub of the place, a quiet and imposing space surrounded by archways and ringed by a walkway on the upper level.

Rooms are as elegant as can be, in traditional Moroccan style, spread over three levels and outfitted with antique and modern furniture. Rooms are heated and air-conditioned, but that’s the extent of the gadgetry here—instead of hypnotizing yourself in front of CNN, you’ll be beckoned to the library, the candlelit dining room, or to the sitting room for tea. The cuisine is as authentic as the décor, and the rooftop terrace is the ideal place to watch the sun set over the medina.

How to get there:

Dar Warda is approximately a 15 minute drive from Marrakech-Menara Airport. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
