Dar Soulahfa nestles in the streets and alleyways that form the very heart of the old Medina of Marrakech. Ideally located in the most desirable area of the Medina, this wonderful position makes it so easy to explore all this exotic city has to offer. The house has an abundance of traditional charm along with 21st century benefits such as air conditioning and heating. The private plunge pool is instantly refreshing and the large roof garden/terrace offers generous and private outside space. The staff provide a warm welcome, are delighted to have children staying and will do their very best to accommodate any request. Intimate enough for a romantic break for two, yet with more than enough space for a small group of friends and ideal for a family. Further images and details can be found at on our website, please ask for link.

Further details indoors

The door to the house opens from the narrowest of streets into the hallway, which in turn leads through to the courtyard where a mosaic fountain trickles into the plunge pool. From this courtyard there is access to one of the bedrooms as well as a bathroom with bath and separate shower; there is another shower room and a kitchen that is intended for the use of the house keeper.

The first floor of Dar Soulahfa offers the majority of the living space with dining and sitting areas that open through traditional arches onto a balcony that overlooks the pool below. Two double bedrooms lead from the balcony, both share an en-suite shower room.

The salon on this level has been decorated to evoke the sultry opulence of a palace hareem with large lanterns creating subtle lighting and a rich mixture of colours and textures. Every effort has been made to ensure the interiors at Dar Soulahfa are as exotic as the city itself.

The salon has TV with numerous European and UK channels and DVD player, there is also a hifi and i-pod docking station. There is a small selection of DVDs and many CDs.

A further flight of stairs leads to the roof terrace.

Though the house is excellently positioned for access to the busy city you will be amazed at the contrast once inside the Riad, the peace and calm are instantly relaxing.

Further details outdoors

The large roof terrace provides the ideal place to have breakfast where the dining table catches the morning sun. The hand painted Berber tent provides shade and further seating and there is plenty of space for private sunbathing. An external shower allows you to cool off as the temperature rises.

A moonlit dinner on the roof is a must with flickering candles and the distant drums and music carried on the breeze from the square. Better still, let Atika arrange for traditional musicians and make it a party.

Further details

Dar Soulahfa has been created to provide ideal family accommodation, also perfect for a small group and romantic enough for a couple. Many Riads in Marrakech are let by the room; Dar Soulahfa is only available for exclusive rental providing a private space without the need to worry about other guests.

The house has a staff of three, Atika our housekeeper and fantastic cook, Khadija the maid and Soulaimane the houseman. While we pay for the housekeeper and maid, it is asked that the guests pay the houseman directly at 100 Dirhams (£6) per day

The kitchen has been set up for the use of the housekeeper who is happy to assist with the preperation of children's' meals.

Though we welcome smokers we ask that guests only smoke in the open areas, first floor loggia and roof terrace. We do not permit smoking in any enclosed rooms including bedrooms.

The Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region

Marrakech is as much an experience as a place, offering the oportunity to acquire memories that will last a lifetime. From the tiny streets and souks of the Old Medina, hardly changed since medieval times, to the international standard restaurants and nightlife. 4x4 safaris into the Atlas Mountains, car trips to the Ourika Valley, the coast at Essaouira or the waterfalls at Cascade D'Ouzoud, golf, skiing, hot air bollooning over the city or just sitting in the square with a mint tea and watching life go by, not to mention the shopping opportunities of the souk; there is something here for everyone.


Dar Soulahfa is tucked away along tiny streets. A walk to the square, though only a few minutes, is packed with intrigue and fascination. Very near to the house is the Dar Si Said Museum and the Bahia Palace, but all the sights are within easy access. The streets are alive with traders, artisans, children and Moroccans going about their life. This is a real chance to immerse yourself in a very different culture. A stay at Dar Soulahfa will provide so much more than any hotel or resort.

"Cosy and conveniently located."

Great atmosphere, well managed, excellent staff. We ate in every night as the ladies' cooking was so good! Lovely weather (sunny, with cool nights) and we really enjoyed our week.

"Beautiful Riad"

We stayed here in January with our three children aged 5, 7 and 8. Initially we were going to stay outside the Medina but are glad we changed our minds! Dar Soulahfa is a beautiful Riad with immaculate attention to detail. In a fantastic quiet location and yet only about 8 minutes easy walk to the main square.It is perfect for either a group of friends or family with children as you have the Riad to yourselves so don't have to worry too much if the children are noisy (unlike other Riads) We ate in one evening and the food was delicious. Having an open fire and heaters in the bedrooms certainly made a difference with the chilly evenings. By day the weather was gorgeous. We spent one whole day reading on the large roof terrace whilst the children pottered around and played with the two tortoises there. The staff were also lovely and great with the children. In all We can't recommend Dar Soulahfa highly enough and we will certainly return next time we visit Marrakech.

"Great house in a great location."

A lovely house with excellent friendly staff. Beautifully restored riad with total privacy centrally located, yet in a quiet backstreet near all the sights. We took 3 kids (9,6 and 2 years) and my 83 year old mother in law. After the madness of the souks and negotiating donkeys and motorbikes it was great to step into this tranquil oasis and relax. We had dinner on 2 days and lunch on another 2 days cooked by Atiqa and Khadija, all of which were superb quality, genuinely authentic and generous portions. Fouad organized our taxis and excursions, which given our party saved me negotiating everything with kids in tow. If you are on a budget be careful about his (or anyone else's) recommendations for where to eat / buy souvenirs, as they are likely to be towards the higher end of the scale. The staff live off-site, so you have the place to yourself, except obviously if you are having meals prepared. Recommended.
