    The information on Horseback riding wasn't accurate - not available easily through the hotel.

    Loved every moment! The staff were friendly and attentive. The decor was Moroccan chic while the ambiance was warm, welcoming and tranquil. Only about 10 mins from the main square, but a world away, navigating thru narrow alleys as you approach the Riad. Truly a gem!

    We enjoyed everything about Dar Sholmes! As a family originally from Hawaii we were very surprised to find the aloha spirit right there in Merrakech. :) We were extremely impressed by the riad's staff and the fantastic food. The riad's owner Andre was extremely friendly and was very quick to accomodate our every need. The location of the riad to the Jemma el Fna/ souks was perfect! We took advantage of the private driver Andre so kindly arranged for us so that we would not have to deal with the 109 degree heat while we explored all the corners of Merrakech. There is a book among Andre's travel library that describes this riad perfectly: Dar Sholmes is a hidden gem! Merci beaucoup Andre and merci to your awesome staff as well.

    Excellent breakfast on pleasant roof terrace. Close to medina Lovely bathroom and attentive staff. Rooms very clean.

    Extremely difficult to locate. No signs or indications of hotel's whereabouts. Parking remote. Unfortunately would consider to be 3/4 stars rather than Rather overpriced

    Very helpful staff who gave us a friendly welcome. Dar Sholmes is great for a short break as it is 10mins walk from tourist attractions including the Souks. Breakfast was very good as was the Morroccan evening meal that we arranged to have on our arrival. At first we were a bit daunted by the area however, all the locals were very cheerful and were eager to please and proved that it was unnecessary to be anxious.

    It is just perfect, the staff were so friendly and helpful. they give information about the city and the people in Marrakech. the breakfast was great. once you are i the hotel you feel at home. it is full of charecteristic, the bed was so comforable and clean. the owner was geneorus to arrange for a taxi to pick me from the airport, and he decided not to charge me for that. and once I arrived they offer me a delecious breakfast for free. The mint tea was fantastic. It is highly recomended to stay in Dar Sholms

    Friendly helpful staff, quick to respond to emails during booking period. Small pleasant Riad with a homely feel (if youre looking for something personal and homely during your stay in Marrakech which is also comfortable and traditional with a modern twist, and close to main attractions, this Riad is for you). Perfect location 10-15 mins walk from Djema El Fna, and close to other sites and soug. Particularly liked the bathroom and roof terrace. Nice breakfast, and on our last day when we had to leave early, the Riad ensured there was someone up early to make us breakfast. No spa or other similar services that larger hotels/Riads offer, but we were not looking for this in particular.

    Staying at Dar Sholmes felt like staying with extended family. I travelled on my own and even though the hotel is situated in the walled area down a few very quiet alleyways I felt very safe. Its location makes it a peaceful haven after the hustle and bustle of the main central area. Les Bans de Marakesch Spa are only a short walk away and well worth the indulgence - discount if staying at Dar Sholmes. I opted to have dinner at the hotel on my first night - an absolute culnary delight; the best food I had on my entire trip. The design and decoration of the hotel is first class, the beds are really comfy and the bathroom spotlessly clean. I was also offered free use of the computer as I don't travel with a laptop.

    I liked that the staff & owners were very polite and helpful. I also liked the breakfast and the dinner prepared by the staff were some of the best tagines we had during our stay. The decor of the room was very modern and trendy.

    Perhaps adding a telephone or fridge to the room would make it better, but having said that - these were not a major issue.

    The hotel is rather deep in the medina, down a number of alley ways. Have a car pick you up at the airport and deliver you to the hotel. Finding you way out and remembering where it is will then be easy, once you are there.The manager was very helpful and the staff excellent. The rooms are also extrememely comfortable. (Superb individually controlled air condioning units..) A very safe neighborhood right next to the Royal Palace.

    I like everything! I initially planned to stay here for 1 day, but I felt like home here so I decided to extend my stay for 2 more days! The room was clean, AC worked well, bathroom excellent, location is 10 minutes walk to famous Djemaa el Fna. But the most important point was the services. The owner and the staffs were excellent! I boooked room for 1 day for €69. When I decided to extend, the price on the Booked.net website showed €89 (€20 more expensive). But the owner keep the price €69! Very2 happy with the price and services! I definitely stay here again if I come back to Marrakech. Don't stay anywhere else, stay at Dar Sholmes, u wont regret it.

    The staff are excellent,from the owners Andre and Sofia to Sergio the night man we found all to be most helpful.The Riad itself is a wonderful haven from the hustle and bustle of the city.Highly reccomended!

    The Dar Sholmes was key to making our Marrakech holiday such a success. The owners and their staff make their visitors so welcome and the beautiful ambience of the Riad help you to appreciate the culture, the people and the traditions of Morocco. The food was 'par excellence' - we eat at their restaurant every evening - you won't find better. The varied menus gave us a wonderful experience of French/Moroccan dishes - which were obviously prepared with care, skill and expertise. It was very reasonably priced - for this three course gourmet experience. You won't be disappointed ....
