Location description from owner
The Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region
Unchanged since the Middle Ages, Marrakesh's solid ramparts encircle and protect its mysterious labyrinthine medina, which hides sultans' palaces, the ornate mansions of rich merchants, and some of the most colourful bazaars in the Arab world. The Djemaa el Fna square in Marrakech is an open-air theatre. By day it sports clusters of stalls selling fresh orange juice, plants, dried fruit and nuts. By night, it fills up with snake charmers, storytellers, belly dancers, musicians and crowds of onlookers. On one side are open air BBQs, which waft delectable meat scents across the square; on the other are rooftop cafes from which you can watch the night unfold. And all around are the souks: an overwhelming array of stalls which wind their way down narrow paths, selling a fabulous selection of leather slippers, ceramics, beautiful cowhide lamps, traditional rugs and wood carvings. Shopping here is addictive stuff. Riad Dar Raja is just a 7-minute stroll from this famous sqare and the souks. And is also close in proximity to 'Hivernage', where the majority of prestigious hotels,casinos,clubs and restaurants are to be found..The area is easily accessible by car and there is 24hr car parking nearby.
Places to visit: Souks, Medersa ben Youssef, Dar si said, palais Bahia, Jem el fna square, Majorelle gardens and many others..."It is the most lovely spot in the whole world." said Winston S. Churchill to Franklin D. Roosevelt about Marrakech in 1943. Its is easy to agree, as the location of this 1000 year-old city has something for everyone. Our local Manager can arrange day trips to the fascinating Berber villages of the nearby Atlas Mountains and Ourika Valley, to the pretty seaside fishing port and beach resort of Essaouira, as well as 3 day/2 night excursions to the Sahara desert.

- Very Good
we had a fantastic time in this beautifully decorated riad. nothing has been forgotten. staff who cooked and cleaned for us were helpful but unobtrusive. wifi didn't work but who needs wifi when there is so much to do!
“beautiful place & amazing location”
I have to say I cant think of anything bad to say about this riad - it is simply spectacular. Location, facilities and sylish decor. A real slice of luxury and style in marrakech. It is very peaceful compared to many places in and around the medina and for that I was very thankful as it can all get a bit much.This rias backs onto beautiful gardens and is a world away from the craziness, noise and smells of the medina. A true haven! I would highly reccommend staying here to anyone. The only people who may not like it are ones with small children as it has an amazing plunge pool (well needed in the summer months) but it is on the same floor as the lounge/kitchen with no way to block it off.. A real trwat for us grown ups though! Thank you for making such a special place to stay in. I will be back!
“A very enjoyable stay all round..”
Dar Raja is a lovely Riad, located very close to all the major points of interest. We were the first guests to stay and it certainly exceeded all our expectations. The design and styling of the Riad was exceptional and the bedrooms and bathrooms comfortable. We spent lots of time up on the spacious roof terrace which overlooks the famous 'La Mamounia' gardens. The staff were polite and helpful and provided a tasty breakfast each morning at a time of our choosing. We were there as a family (with 2 older children) and the Riad made our stay in Marrakech a most enjoyable one - we'd certainly recommend it to friends.
