In the middle of the medina, surrounded by labyrinthine streets a short walk from the frenetic Jemaa el-Fna Square, Dar Silsila is a traditional 10-room riad with a secluded inner courtyard, a soothing hammam and four rooftop terraces. The interiors feature jewel tones, dark wood furnishings, arched double doors and intricate geometric tilework. Each of the 10 rooms is individually decorated with plenty of authentic Moroccan touches, including lamps, chandeliers and colorful rugs. Suites come with separate seating areas. After a day of navigating the city’s ancient streets, kick back on one of the four terraces (breakfast can also be served on them), take a dip in the plunge pool or hit the hammam for a traditional treatment. Dinner can be arranged on request (just let them know at breakfast).
In The Area
In Marrakech’s maze-like medina, the hotel is within walking distance of the city’s best restaurants, markets and nightspots; just be sure to ask for directions before you go. Sip rich Moroccan mint tea at the restored 17th-century riad Dar Cherifa. Dine on modernized classic dishes such as filled pastilla for lunch or dinner in the walled garden of Dar Moha, once the home of designer Pierre Balmain and now one of the city’s best restaurants. Previously owned by Yves Saint Laurent (whose mansion overlooks the grounds), the lush gardens of the Jardin Majorelle date back to the 1920s; don’t miss the small but impressive museum of Islamic art.
How to Get There
A very nice and cosy riad, in a very good location, extremely clean. The staff was very helpful and polite.
The food was also very nice.
The rooms were very comfortable and well decorated.
Overall, it is a great riad, a great experience that I would highly recommend!
This hotel was beautiful! This was my first time to Morocco and the hotel was pleasantly surprising. Staff was friendly and the place was always clean. This place was a family home that was converted into a hotel which is why its located down a few narrow corridors. Its very close proximity to the markets.
Breakfast always had fresh squeeze orange juice. They had these fried dough things with honey. Didn't have the opportunity to have dinner at the hotel as it had to be ordered very early in the day. a couple of nights we had to go find pizza or wraps on the main road.
My only suggestion to this hotel is to have signs directing to the hotel. When we arrived we couldn't figure out where to go at 3am. the only people out were the drug dealers who guided us where to go and then hustled us for one Euro per person for the very short distance guide. When we were leaving the hotel there were new travellers coming in who got hustled as well.
I would highly recommend this hotel when in Marrakesh. Location is great as it is a 7 min walk from Jame el Fnaa, staff are very friendly and nice; Ibrahim was always helping us, and the breakfast was excellent and very rich! Getting to the hotel might not seem easy for the first time, but once you know the place it becomes easy to get there. I would highly recommend it and if I would go again, I would definitely stay there again!
Dar Silsila was the perfect place to retreat to after busy days out in the souks of Marrakech. It is clean, well appointed, quiet, has good wifi, and is just lovely. Ibrahim and the staff were kind and helpful at all times, greeting us with a smile every time we returned. Breakfast is delicious and just what we needed to start each busy day, and I'd highly recommend the hammam treatment there as well. We will definitely stay at Dar Silsila again on future visits to Marrakech, and highly recommend it to others.
A dream come true. The perfect getaway from the noise of Marrakesh. So kind staff, perfect location. I would recommend tjis to everyone, especially if you like a more personal touch. The hamman was good. Just get here!
