The El Assafir is in a great location. It has parking, a good size pool, polite and Helpful English speaking manager, two tree filled courtyards. A great 3 day stay! Recommend to everyone! Food was great. They surprised us with wine on our last dinner that was delicious!

Stayed for three nights at this family run Riad El Assafir. Excellent location, beautiful Riad, fantastic staff, and great food. Room was spacious with birds singing in the morning. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend!!! This was the best place we stayed at during our journey in Morocco. Swimming pool is the real deal, not a cooling off bathtub. Parking right in front of door to Riad and within walking distance to main medina square.

Arrived late last night. Booking. Com says parking but on arrival we are told we have to move our expensive bikes elsewhere. Paid for a suite but got two single beds pushed together. Cut my toe in the shower. I respect its a Muslim country but no beer or attempt to get us any. Food is very standard.

This place is just a ten minute walk from Djama el Fna market. It is quiet and peaceful at the hotel but you can walk to the main parts in just a few mins. The staff were really helpful. There was a lovely aviary of birds to chirp friendly in the morning and a lovely clean pool to take a dip in. Wifi was strong all through the building.

Room Tip: Second floor has a nice balcony view of the pool and aviary.

I stayed at the Riad Dar El Assafir with a friend over the Christmas period. We pre-booked a taxi to get us from the airport to the hotel, where we were met by the hotel staff.
The hotel itself is hidden away just a short walk from the Medina and main square, Jemaa El Fna. In the opposite direction is the new town where trendy bars and restaurants can be found. This part of Marrakesh is very westernised, so we tended to stay away.
The tranquil setting made it an ideal stay after a long day in the city, especially with the small pool to dangle our feet (its not big enough to swim in).

It is a beautiful 1000 year old authentic Moroccan building with carved stucco and tiles away from all the hustle and bustle but just a short walk to Jemaa El Fna, the main square. A tranquille oasis with banana, hibiscus and other tropical plants surrounding the pool in the main central courtyard.
The staff were friendly, helpful and likeable. I would highly recommend this riad.

Dar El Assafir is a well hidden jem at sufficient distance from the hectic, noisy, stinky city centre of Marrakesh. It takes a 10 to 15 min. walk to Djemaa el Fnaa but this makes it the perfect oasis of calm. The owner and staff are very helpful and not morning over a special request. Cleaning lady is very honest in returning lost money. The pool is too small for a descent swim but excellent to cool down. Having very good breakfast alongside the pool is quite charming. The riad is a very good choice though the price is at the high-end compared to similar others.
