  • Dana was a great host. Very friendly and has a girls that cooks you breakfast and can have "Hassan" her taxi driver pick you up at the airport (which I highly recommend) and take you anywhere else. This made our stay much easy and very enjoyable. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Dana was away on business and so we did not meet her. She left us helpful instructions and we were able to get the keys to the apartment from the concierge with no problems. Here place is really beautiful, filled with ornate and tasteful decor and a real treat to return to following a day out in Marrakech. We were very comfortable and enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and the delicious breakfast prepared by her housekeeper every morning. What a fantastic experience, would certainly recommend!

  • Staying in Dana's beautiful, spacious apartment for a few days in February was a lovely experience; it made a special visit to Marrakech all the more so. The apartment is comfortable and well-equipped, including heating and air-con, and all kept to a high standard. Furnished with some fabulous individual pieces, and with delightful details, it is stylish but unpretentious. Dana herself is very helpful, caring and attentive to details; she’s quick to respond to queries, and always available by phone. Her kind, discreet housekeeper ensures that comfort is not compromised, and provides delicious breakfasts, while her driver, who speaks good English, is an asset.

  • Our stay at Dana's apartment was great. The apartment is spacious and clean. There are a few good restaurants nearby, and it is only a 15-20 minute walk to the Medina. Dana was traveling while we were there, but she was easy to reach, and was happy to answer any questions we had. She also arranged our airport transfer. I would highly recommend staying at Dana's place.

  • Very clean and spacious apartment just across the train station. Especially the housekeeper Aicha adds to the luxury by getting your breakfast ready every morning and the flat cleaned every day!
    Beautifully furnished and decorated, Dana's flat is very welcoming and full of little treasures.
    The only tiny downside might be the constant buzzing and honking of cars and scooters until late at night.

  • We really enjoyed our stay which was over Christmas. Dana’s apartment provides a high standard of accommodation. It is very comfortable and clean with good heating for any chilly evenings. Both bedrooms have double beds and access to one of the two terraces. Dana is really helpful and makes good recommendations. The apartment is approx 20 minutes walk to the square or 20-30 Dirhams by taxi. It is very well situated in the Gueliz (new town) for restaurants, the Majorelle Gardens and trains if you want to explore other parts of Morocco. Apart from arriving in the middle of the Bayern Munich vs Casablanca football final we didn’t find the junction noisy. From Dana’s apartment, walking to the square, we would recommend the Artisan Centre on Mohammed V opposite the Cyper Park where they have a wide range of goods at fixed prices, many made by cooperatives. Thank you Dana for helping make this a lovely comfortable break.

  • My husband I stayed at Dana's place for 3 nights on our little holiday in Marrakech.
    The apartment is located very conveniently to the train station in the new city, and very close to a lot of restaurants and cafes.
    After staying inside of Medina a couple of days, this was a perfect location to explore the new city.
    Dana has decorated her apartment so beautifully, it was a joy to just look at it.
    Plenty of fresh linens are prepared in the bathroom for guests, and that felt so welcomed.
    Dana also gave us some very interesting suggestions for the trip within Morocco, which we are keen to explore next time.
    All in all, we would definitely recommend her apartment to anyone who'd like to stay in the new city in Marrakech.

  • Dana is a fantastic host and I definitely recommend her place! It is very centrally-located (a block from the train station), beautifully decorated, and quite comfortable. Her (English-speaking) driver and housekeeper were both also great (loved the daily breakfast!).

    Dana is very friendly, easy to coordinate with, and provided excellent tips for Marrakech. This was my first trip to Morocco and thanks to her, surely won't be my last.

  • Great stay, great host. We loved it and will be back for more. The appartment is comfortable, athmosperic and clean, It is situated on a main road near the station that makes is both a good base but also a bit noisy. Dana is a great host and very helpful!
