Reviewed 15 June 2016

Perfectly located in the Kasbah region of the ancient walled city Riad Daria is nothing short of an oasis. If you are looking for an authentic Marrakech experience you will not be disappointed. Off a dusty side street and through an ornate wooden door you enter Riad Daria and are transported to a different time. The welcome is warm and the staff cannot do enough for you. We ate our meals, in beautiful surroundings. The Riad was always cool and serene,even in 40 degrees of heat. Totally charming it felt like home. I highly recommend a visit and will be returning ourselves in the not too distant future. Thankyou Sobha for an amazing experience.

Spotlessly clean, with terrific service, and the rooftop garden is gorgeous. Much quieter than riads nearer the main square - I was woken by birdsong! Friends were staying at a riad nearby, twice the price, and I didn't think it was as good.

One is greeted by the welcoming, warm, multi-lingual staff and guided past the little pool through a courtyard, past and through a charming cozy area to sit and drink tea and another to watch television and then to a very lovely room upstairs. The bathroom was beautifully appointed and had lots of room for clothes and suitcases. Detailed wood carved shutters and doors throughout. Breakfast outside on the terrace or in courtyard. I personally would have preferred a more Moroccan style breakfast (whatever that is) and if European, then with real cheese and whole grain bread. Coffee good.
Hosts knowledgeable about the area and very accommodating.

I was upgraded to a huge suite, which I really didn't need or want, it was a long hike on cold floors to the bathroom in the night! I asked for breakfast at a specific time, but it seems as though it was only then that it was started to be prepared, result I was sitting wasting good sightseeing time. It was very well placed though for the Clock, a lovely place, and several of the main places to see. I also felt quite safe walking back on my own.

Location is pretty good, walking to the square, great service, excellent food, very clean and modern.

Morning bird convention in the orange trees in the courtyard. Fun, but...noisy.

Close to Clock restaurant, and another fancy hotel with a nice dining experience. Would totally go back.

The guest house itself is made in beautiful morrocan style and very up to standard. It is an oasis in the middle of Marrakech after a day spent in the City.To the main square you will need approx 15 min walking, mostly through the streets of Kasbah.They have different types of rooms on two floors and a few options to enjoy your meals.The terraces are just inviting you to get out of your room to feel the flair of the Riad. The staff made us feel very welcome from day 1. You have a few excursion options offered by the hotel, u can can also book daily meals at the Riad directly. We loved the breakfast served there, but a few more variations of breakfast would be very welcome. The Riad felt like home at the certain moments. Thank you guys for a great holidays and a surprise delicious cake for my birthday!!!

Staff were friendly, very helpful and professional.
About 20 mins from Jemaa el-Fnaa, 2 mins cafe clock, 5 mins from the hammam (Spa), 2 mins from the swimming pool (raid itself only has a splash pool), but that's another reason why this raid is so tranquil.

A 'Cozy, private and traditional riad', like a different world hidden away from the hectic life outside, a true gem!
We always felt as if the service was catered for our every need on our terms, truly a 5 star service!

Although I'd like to keep this as our little secret, it's only fair to allow others to enjoy and relax in this genuine haven as we did!

Thank you Sobha for making our anniversary stay that much more!

Room Tip: Slept like a log, 1st floor with AC, never had to use it, just used the ceiling fan!
