Magical Marrakech!! What a truly wonderful experience, we felt very privileged to be able to stay in this stunning Riad. The angel Sabah ensured arrival was smooth, the place always immaculate, the only meal she cooked during my stay was absolutely superb...if I had stayed longer I would have enjoyed more Sabah cooking for sure!! An amazing experience and we very much hope to return for longer next time, this is the place we look forward to staying in again without a doubt-the photos do not capture the true beauty and incredible detail, it is also in a brilliant position for exploring and convenience...book it, you will have no regrets for sure!!
My stay at Dar Awach with my husband and my mother couldn't have been more idyllic. The riad is stylishly decorated, spotlessly clean and an absolute oasis of calm in the sometimes slightly hectic Medina.
The location was perfect, just on the north edge of the souks and walking distance to everything you might want to visit or may require as a convenience.
The calming plunge pool and spacious roof terrace were particularly welcome in the heat of the afternoons.
The housekeeper Sabah was an absolute delight, preparing delicious fresh bread for breakfast each morning and making coffee/mint tea. She was incredibly warm, kind and informative, although it helps if you can communicate in a combination of French and English. The driver Fayssal was also lovely, he took us on some fantastic day trips and was friendly, informative and flexible.
I have already recommended this riad to some of my family and wouldn't hesitate to rebook when I visit again.
Thank you so much for a lovely holiday.
BEAUTIFUL!!! Reting Dar Ahwach has been my best AirBnB exprience ever. The Riad was in a very nice area and yet close to the bussy medina.
The housekeeper Sabah was so kind and helpful - and she made us a fantastic 3-course dinner.
Francoise (the host) was good to comunicate with via e-mails.
I have allready recomended Dar Ahwach to my friends and family - it is a uniq pearl in Marrakesh :-)
We had a great stay at Françoise's riad in the heart of the medina.
Everything was perfectly well organized ahead of our stay, with a long list of places to go and all organizational aspects of the stay. From the airport, Fayssal brought us home where Sabah welcomed us. The riad itself is perfectly located, calm and wonderfully decorated - a peaceful oasis. We warmly recommend this place and would come back any time.
Het is een schitterend Riad , centraal gelegen in de Souk. Ondanks dat het Riad centraal gelegen is, is het binnen zeer rustig. Saba als beheerder zorgt er voor dat het aan niets ontbreekt, je kunt met alle vragen bij haar terecht. Op verzoek kookt zij ook een overheerlijke Marokkaanse maaltijd. Het riad is zeker een bezoek waard.
Nuestra experiencia en Marrakech ha resultado ser extraordinaria por todo lo que hemos visto, conocido y vivido pero sobre todo por haber tenido la fortuna de alojarnos es este encantador Riad. La ubicación es perfecta: En el centro de la Medina, a unos 10 minutos ( a pie ) de la Plaza Djemaa El Fna. Ocupamos las tres habitaciones del Riad . Está decorado cuidando el más mínimo detalle, es muy acogedor, limpio y en general, pensado para que el visitante disfrute plenamente de su estancia. Sólo hay una cosa que resultó ser más satisfactoria que el propio Riad... Me refiero a la fortuna de contar con los servicios y la amabilidad de Sabah, la persona responsable del Riad. Decidimos comer en el Riad el día de nuestra llegada, pensando básicamente en la comodidad de nuestros hijos. Sabah cocinó para nosotros ... y la comida resultó ser tan exquisita que decidimos sin dudar que todos los días almorzaríamos y cenaríamos en el Riad ( con la excepción de un par de almuerzos y una cena, por estar de excursión visitando algunas zonas retiradas ).Esta Señora cocina como los ángeles . De hecho es la culpable de que hayamos regresado a casa con un par de kilos de más. Pero lo más importante es su amabilidad, discreción y disposición a ayudar siempre, con una sonrisa. Uno de los días, uno de los niño se puso enfermo con fiebre y decidimos llevarlo al médico. Sabah acompañó al niño y a su madre en todo momento sin que nadie se lo pidiera. Siempre la recordaremos con muchísimo cariño.
Me gustaría destacar tambien la amabilidad y profesionalidad de Fayssal, el chico que se encargó de trasladarnos desde el Aeropuerto y regreso. Además, contratamos sus servicios para hacer un par de excursiones y al margen de su amabilidad ( es todo un caballero ) los precios de las excursiones que contratamos con él fueron mucho más bajos que los ofrecidos por las agencias. Incluso, un día, despues de terminar de visitar con él los sitios acordados, nos " regaló " una visita al Hotel la Mamounia. Por cierto, mi hijo de 12 años, tras visitar este elegante hotel me dijo : " Papá , este Hotel es muy bonito y muy lujoso pero a mí me gusta más nuestro Riad con Sabah y sus comidas "... Estoy de acuerdo con mi hijo.
Por último comentaré que la noche anterior a nuestra partida, recibimos una llamada de la Sra. Luxor, la propietaria del Riad, interesándose por nuestra experiencia y por nuestro grado de satisfacción . Desde luego, si volvemos a Marrakech , solo lo haremos alojándonos en este magnífico Riad y disfrutando de la amabilidad de Fayssal y de nuestra ya queridísima Sabah ( La recordaremos siempre con mucho cariño ).
Perfect location in the Medina - easy walk to the main square through the souks - but also far enough away from the center to be quiet in the evening. Beautiful, clean rooms and lots of space. Roof terrace is perfect for relaxing and dining and there's a great panoramic view of the city and the Atlas mountains beyond from a small upper deck. Get up at dawn and listen to the incredible sound of dozens of mosques broadcasting the call to prayer. ...and of course the friendly house-keeper serving a delicious breakfast.
Dar Ahwach is a very special place and the perfect oasis to balance the crazy and magical world of the medina. It's location is superb, it's interior beautiful and it is made all the more special by Sabbah, the housekeeper, who is just wonderful. You should definitely take the opportunity to try her home cooking. It was the best food we had and that's saying something because everything we ate in Marrakech was fantastic. I'd also highly recommend breaking out of the city for a trip with Fayssal, the driver. The time we spent with the two of them was so important in helping us to try and understand more about Marrakech than just the 'big square', the souks and the shopping - all of which will blow your mind. We stayed for 5 days and it definitely was not long enough. I feel like I've walked out of a love affair just as it began and I'm very sad to have left it behind.
Dar Ahwach is a beautiful, tranquil and dare I say it, magical Riad in the heart of the Medina.
Francois was very helpful in the build up to our trip, sending us all the info we needed and sorting out our transfer from the airport.
Sabah was lovely, very helpful and very sweet. She made us lovely breakfasts and helped with suggestions of things to do and see, without imposing on our time. She also welcomed us with a pot of tea and some pastries.
Needless to say we were sad to leave, and if we visit the city again we will definitely be in touch.

What a wonderful place to stay we couldn't have asked for somewhere more relaxing, comfortable and spacious. Also the level of interior details were a nice finish. We most of all loved the outdoor terrace which was great to soak up the sun in that time of year and just sit, read a book and unwind in that very quiet neighbourhood. The Riad was in a perfect location close to everything we needed: restaurants, markets, the main square. Our housekeeper Sabah was very welcoming and helpful and every morning we were surprised with another traditional breakfast and delicious mint tea. Also the transfer with Fayssal was very smooth and easy. We would highly recommend the Dar Ahwach Riad of Francoise and look forward to our next stay.
