The staff was so helpful and the place is really well decorated and very very clean. I spent around 4 days there and it was a really unique experience. If i go again to Marracech i will really consider staying again in Dar kawa.

Beautiful, comfortable, beautiful Dar in the Medina of Marrakech. With 4 gorgeous and very comfortable rooms (great beds, designer bed linen and dreamy bathrooms) and the famous Dar patio that is, again, beautiful. Well placed to visit Marrakech, very, very nice people, scrumptious food and breakfast and did I say it was absolutely beautiful?

Mixed feelings about this riad really; having been to Marrakech and a different riad before I feel like having good judgement in terms of comparison. Because of my partner's birthday we wanted to treat ourselves and booked the most expensive suite. In a nutshell: while the riad is really OK and definitely keeps up with the rest of similar accomodation...

I staid two nights with my mother in the riad. We had a wonderful time. There was the possibility to get a transfer from the airport to the riad. As it wasn't possible to get with the taxi in front of the riad, the host, Abdelhadi came to pick us up where the taxi dropped us. Once we arrived we...

Amazing riad, amazing food and amazing location. Abdelhadi met us and brought us to the house, and during our stay he was always on hand to help with any directions or recommendations. The service was discreet and really made you feel as though you were just staying in your own home, but with MUCH better food. Large roof terrace which...

Wow. This is my first review for a while, but having spent 2 days at Dar Kawa, we're already looking at when we can return. Ensure you get staff to meet you is Place Moukef, or from the airport as whilst it is easy to find after arrival, it is very well hidden in the rabbit warren of the medina....

My boyfriend and I stayed at riad Darkawa for 2 nights, at the end of our vacation in Marocco. We were welcomed by Abdelhadi, who takes care of the house and was always happy to help us with anything. Darkawa is centrally placed (middle of the medina) and astonishing into the details: everything is tasteful, from the furniture to the...

As you can see from the photos and website, this is a very chic and beautfilly designed hotel. However the owner wasn't there when we stayed, and it felt like staying in someone's second home rather than in a hotel. The guy looking after us was very friendly, but compared to the other riad we stayed in, the service wasn't...

"The feeling to be at home". Such is the mood Dar Kawa wants to offer its clients. In this sense, we do not call our riad a "hotel" but "home". In this spirit, we ask our staff to be discreet but always listening. The idea is to offer a sense of tranquility and conviviality. Our breakfasts are included in the...

Our 4-night stay at Dar Kawa was exceptional - a great way to escape the congested streets of Marrakech. There are only 4 rooms and we rarely saw other guests so it truly felt like we had our own private house in the heart of the medina. The staff, led by Abdelhadi, do a wonderful job at making you feel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Push the door of Dar Kawa and let go. Gliding by the rhythm of a slow life, of well-being and healing. Initially, Dar Kawa was a place of prayer ... This is definitely the reason why there still emanates a soothing energy. Here, you feel at home, without the constraints of your own home. We abandon ourselves in this universe fully imagined and created by Valerie Barkowski. Valerie Barkowski, creator, traveler from here and elsewhere who invents and assembles by following her moods. Respectful of tradition and know-how, she has always worked with artisans creating textiles and objects with a soul and a history, which travel through time by their authenticity. Dar Kawa is her home. She restored, shaped, modulated the house according to her desires and inspirations. You will find her own designs and notice that every detail of the house has been taken care of. In Dar Kawa, certain memories coexist, like those of the Sahart foundation. Paintings, photographs, traces of artists who have stayed there. Here, you live with the seasons, wandering from the terrace to the patio in summer and living close to the open fire in winter. The table also metamorphosis during the year using local and seasonal products cooked delicately by Saida. We take time to taste healthy ingredients, assembled according to the principles of Moroccan cuisine. We can enjoy a book, a mint tea or a siesta in the shade. One can also go through the Spa of the house for a personalized massage, to live life simply. Dar Kawa is more than a hotel. It is a house where Valerie Barkowski and her staff welcome you with warmth and kindness ... Welcome. ... more   less
