Stayed at Dar Nour El Houda for two nights, right after a 20+ hour journey flying into Marrakech from Toronto. It was our first time in Morocco and we were two girls in our twenties, so we were a bit uncertain about what to expect of our time in Marrakech. We booked an airport transfer with the riad, which cost...

We stayed in this beautiful Riad for 6 nights in Marrakech and loved every minute of it. Firstly and most importantly the manager Nouridine goes out his way to help you with anything you need from the moment you arrive with a refreshing pot of mint tea. For example when I needed last minute coach tickets to Essouaira, and couldn't...

Wow what a wonderful Riad. The personnel go over and beyond to help. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the Riad is close to all activities. We have travelled all over and this Riad is up there with the best we have stayed in. You will feel like home, the wifi is very strong and breakfast is great.

This place is a little gem. It's clean and well presented. We were in the smaller Barkaa room for 2 nights and the bigger Salam room for another 2. Both rooms had comfortable beds, though the first one was a small room. Breakfast is limited in its offering but is presented with a flourish. The riad is about a 12-15...

We had four lovely days in the Dar nour el houda Riad. Such a beautiful and peaceful place, we felt really at home. Nourdinne our host really made some effort to make us feel comfortable and showed us around town whenever we felt insecure about the way. Thank you for eveything, we would love to come back! :)

From the moment we entered this tranquil environment we were enchanted. A peaceful oasis set amongst the exciting and busy the medina alleys and souks. Getting there- We took a taxi from the airport arranged by the Riad. This was very useful because the Riad is down a small alley and would've been hard to find on our own. A...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Nour El Houda is a chic and unique boutique Riad in the heart of the Madina of Marrakech. It is the former home of French contemporary artist Patrick Carpentier and is now owned by a group of British friends who fell in love with the place. The Riad is interior decorated to a high standard in cream and white. It enjoys an open courtyard with a large Olive tree and a plunge pool as well as a terrace with views to the Katoubia and the Atlas Mountains. Each of the four en-suite bedrooms have their own unique character and the entire property is decorated with Patrick's beautiful artworks. The Riad is located in the centre of the Madina, close to star attractions such as Ben Youssef Mosque and Madresa (5 mins walk), the Marrakech Museum (5 mins walk) and the Photography Museum (4 mins walk). Jemaa-El-Fna is an approximate 12-15 minute walk away and a map is provided to guide you. Taxis from the airport stop at Place Moukef (Kaat Benahid), a 4 minute walk away. Famous restaurants such as Le Fondouk, Dar Tazi and Restaurant Naima are all approximately 5 minutes walk away, but in our opinion the best meal is served within Dar Nour El Houda itself with a fantastic 3-course meal cooked by one of your hosts, Asia. Together with our Manager, Noureddine, you will be treated to attentive service where every guest is looked after with the utmost care. ... more   less
