My friend and I rented Dar el Ma for for 4 nights in November and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The house is perfectly located - a short walk from the blue gate and a moment away from one of the main streets, but peacefully quiet inside. The house is spacious and comfortable, with a great...

Claire and Joe bought this old riad (a traditional stone, wood and stucco house in the Middle Age medinas of Morocco) in 2006, and with the help of some talented local workers, brought it back to life in an original Moroccan style--but with modern plumbing and electric wiring, tiled kitchen, and sliding glass roof panels over the central courtyard skylight....

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Dar el Ma. The whole house is designed to perfection and is incredibly comfortable, spacious, clean and relaxing. The housekeeper Houda was also a great addition to our time here, she made us an excellent breakfast every morning and was always available when we had questions. The bedroom was very nice,...

I have been in Dar el Ma twice with my family and both times I felt like having a home in Fez. The Dar is very well equipped with all the modern appliances that you may need and also have all the charm of a traditional Fez house. Our daughters enjoyed all the little details of the house. After a...

We arrived in Fes at an especially busy time,two days before Eid al Kebir (Feast of the Sacrifice). There were hundreds of tourists in groups, clogging .the streets, plus Fassis returning home for the big holiday. Walking through the narrow streets was almost impossible. What a relief to return to Dar el Ma! Tucked into a narrow street between Telaa...

Dar el Ma was a great start to our trip. A treat to stay in such a lovely place. So much work and care has been done to make Dar el Ma what it is! Loved the comfy bed, breakfast, terrace and central location. We explored the souks for hours, ate cactus fruit, pet donkeys, saw the tannery and explored...

What a lovely place - we felt in love with Dar el Ma this October! Like an oasis in the incredible city of Marrakech, located right in the heart of the medina. The family room worked just perfect for us and our two kids, and we all had a great time discovering the house and relaxing on the roof top...

Unfortunately we were in Dar el Ma for just one night, but the house is not only beautiful and with a very typical Moroccan design throughout ,, but is also huge!, the rooms are goirgeous and the typical Moroccan bathroom is the only one we found during our whole trip. You will definitely be surprised (for the good) when you...

Thanks to the staff and owners of Dar El Ma for giving us such a soft landing in Morroco. They were very helpful and the property was perfect for our needs. Undoubtedly my favourite riad of the half dozen I experienced on my trip. On the first night we had the entire place to ourselves and felt utterly spoiled. Amazing...

The Riad was everything we hoped it would be: well-located, spacious, tasteful, clean and the interaction with the owners/staff was efficient and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Fez, the neighbourhood has a lot to offer - shops, hammam, restaurants.
