Very kind and helpfull staf, good price, very nice balcony, the cuisine was very nice. We had dinner two times and enjoyed very much the local food.The location is also good since turning left at the House of The Pacha, would take us to the most interisting places in the Medina.
Hope we can come back one day.

Maybe I should start by giving you some context about my visit to this riad . ( in one sentence and as short as possible )
It was our first visit to Morocco and the first of my wife in Arab countries arrived to Marrakech around 2:30 am due to a delay in flight .
We had a taxi driver waiting for us, as agreed with the staff of the riad. (hurray for us)
It was a pleasant surprise to see him there, since we were 2 hours late and we had no opportunity to tell anyone about our delay. (We assume that we would have to get a taxi in Marrakech, dealing with the possible problems like finding one taxi driver that would know the way till our riad, negotiate the price for the ride, etc)
The taxi driver immediately took our luggage and led us to the riad , having left us in a square in the middle of the medina and where there was just a man standing there.
We realized it was not exactly a situation where we were in security. The man, with a somewhat understandable English, greeted us and asked us to follow him along, grabbing our luggage.
We followed him through the streets and alleys until we turn left for "into a tunnel", being unnoticeable at the time that in the end of it there was the entrance off the riad. (and here ends the "least good part" of the experience of this riad)
As we entered, we were escorted to our room and were asked if we wanted tea or coffee for breakfast , we opted for both since we like both.

We entered the room and we were completely amazed . The entrance of the room consisted of a small room where we could sit and drink a tea while we read a book, some walls had shelfs with books and magazines .
On the left in this small room, there was the room with a bed big enough to not bother your +1 as you move during your sleep .
The bathroom was behind a wall at the headboard, that entails some possible disadvantages.
As far as dimensions of the room go, i would say it had approximately 10 meters in depth and 5 wide.
Talking about the bathroom it had a huge marble stone tub great for a bubble bath after a full day of sightseeing .
As for breakfast, freshly squeezed orange juice; spectacular pancakes with strawberry jam and peach jam and some French pastries cakes (as good or better than the best French pastries).

The tips from the manager, were wonderful "tool" to help us out in planning our day visit to the city .

The only bad thing in this riad, was that we only stayed two days.

Hope that you guys can enjoy this as much as us.

The Dar Warda is a beautiful little Riad down a small maze of ally ways (easy to find when you get your bearings!) The owners and staff are all so lovely, nothing is too much trouble and always on hand with a map and directions. We even got an escort to our dinner reservation as it was a bit hard to find! The continental breakfast each morning is lovely and sets you up for the day. Rooms are all very well decorated and there are hair dryers in the bathroom for the girls! Beautiful sun terrace and roof terrace for relaxing with a book. Overall, a wonderful 3 night stay with my husband! Thanks!

Booked for 3 nights, extended for a 4th. It was a very charming dar with multiple levels - we ate breakfast both in the courtyard and on the roof-top terrace. Lovely varied breakfasts every day, (omelette/hard boiled egg, pan au chocolat, apple turnover, snail pastries, custard pastries, crepes, pancakes, breads, jams, fruit/vanilla yoghurts, tea/coffee and orange juice). One late afternoon after much shopping we both fell asleep on the roof-top lounge-beds under the setting sun. Great staff at all times of day, always happy to assist with restaurant recommendations, directions, and even picked up our train tickets back to Casablanca for us from the station. Well located some 200 metres off the north-west end of the souks, we enjoyed seeking the nearby artisans' workshops, with better prices and more relaxed scene than the increasingly intense experience to be had as you approach Djemaa El Fna (15 minutes walk along a main road skirting the souk, or several hours wandering lost through the labyrinthine shopping lanes). Nearer Dar Warda and the landmark Rue Riad el-Arous we stumbled upon the Marrakech Museum and the Ben Youssef Medersa, which was a highlight of our stay.

The only issue arose from the early December days, which made it quite cool, despite the air conditioning heater in the room, and dry; the rooms could have used a humidifier. It was also a bit cool in the courtyard for breakfast. The free wifi in the courtyard worked well though, and the absence of such technology in the room only added to the quiet charm.

A quiet oasis in the heart of the Medina - a house kept beautifully in colorful shape equipped with lovely staff who always had an ear and a recommandation for us. Marvelous breakfasts and stunning sunsets at the terrasse... We'll come back...
