Sharif don't like it, rock the Kasbah, rock the Kasbah' - The Clash. I'm not sure if The Clash were encouraging people to tear up Morocco, but if they were you can be sure it was out of shear frustration from dealing with people in the tourism industry! We've done a lot of travel in the last few years so maybe we are difficult to impress. Morocco …
... prices our waiter was wearing a nice black suit and tie.
Having stayed as long as we could at the restaurant we decided to just head for the train station. On the way we realised we were actually quite close to Starbucks which was quickly deemed a much nicer place to wait out the day than the train station. Surprisingly it was one of the nicer Starbucks coffees I have had which was probably due to the fact that they had flat whites on the menu.
Bags are packed and we have made it as far as Dubai. We said our sad goodbyes to Steve - he flew out of Marrakech yesterday afternoon. It has been an amazing trip. Starting with a catchup with Sarah and her family, right through to Morocco, it has been a blast! And while we have enjoyed seeing and doing a lot of amazing things, it is time to come home. Looking forward to seeing everyone and boring them with all our photos ...
... to the Gold Coast! We arrive at Madrid airport for our 'international' flight to Marrakech in Morrocco..........and hopped on a 14 seater plane! It was similar to a plane you would catch from maybe Hamilton Island to mainland Oz, certainly not a plane you would expect to be on, travelling between countries! We continue to be amazed at how small other countries are compared to Australia. We had booked into a 'Riad' in Marrakech. Raids are smaller, family run, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dar Hanane Marrakech
My boyfriend and I have just come back from a week in Marrakech/Essaouira and we stayed at Dar Hanane for the first 4 nights.
Acabamos de volver de nuestro primer viaje a Marrakech y nos hemos pasado un fin de semana fabuloso en el maravilloso Dar Hanane. Nuestra reacción inicial a las callejuelas oscuras y normalmente polvorientas de Marrakech fue inquietante, pero enseguida descubrimos que la gente de allí es muy simpática, amable y servicial, nunca nos sentimos amenazados, ni siquiera volviendo por el zoco tarde por la noche. Este Riad se encuentra bajando el callejón, pero una vez que superamos nuestra inquietud inicial, nos relajamos y disfrutamos de los sitios y el ambiente de esta ciudad tan diferente. Puede que sea un cliché, pero una vez que aprendes como moverte por allí, en cuanto entras, este Riad es un "Oasis de Paz". Las señoritas que se encargaban de nosotros eran encantadoras y nuestra habitación estaba muy limpia y era muy cómoda. Almorzamos y cenamos en el Riad en su terraza de la azotea; la comida era deliciosa, el entorno, ¡y la cuenta razonable!
We have just returned from our first visit to Marrakech and had a fabulous weekend staying in the wonderful Dar Hanane.
Wir kommen gerade von unserer ersten Reise nach Marrakesch zurück, wo wir ein fabelhaftes Wochenende im wundervollen Dar Hanane verlebten. Anfangs machten uns die manchmal dunklen und meist staubigen Gässchen in Marrakesch nervös und unruhig, aber bald wurde uns klar, dass die Bewohner von Marrakesch allgemein freundlich und nett sind und bemüht zu helfen. Wir fühlten uns nie in Gefahr, nicht einmal bei einem Gang spät abends durch das einsame Souk. Dieses Riad liegt an einer solchen Gasse, aber nachdem wir unsere anfängliche Besorgnis überwunden hatten waren wir mehr gelassen und genossen die Sehenswürdigkeiten und die Atmosphäre dieser ungewöhnlichen Stadt. Es mag ein Klischee sein, aber wenn man einmal den Weg hierher gefunden hat, ist dieses Riad wahrhaftig eine "Oase der Ruhe". Die Damen, die uns versorgten, waren charmant und freundlich und unser Zimmer war sehr sauber und gemütlich. Wir aßen Mittag- und Abendessen auf der Dachterrasse im Riad - das Essen war lecker, die Umgebung zauberhaft und die Rechnung angemessen.
Oasis in the medina
Dar Hanane is a beautiful riad in the heart of the bustling medina. The rooms were gorgeous and the courtyard and roof terrace magical. The staff were very friendly and we ate in the riad on two nights and had beautifully presented morroccan cuisine; tagine, couscous and pastries.
The property is located down a dark alley, and is a good 15 minute walk from the main square. The local area was interesting with fewer tourists, but some of the narrow alleys did feel intimidating at first, but once we got used to the route and knew our way arround we felt more confident and at ease. All the locals we spoke to were extremely friendly and helped us out when we were lost.
If I were to return to Marrakesh I would definitely stay again at Dar Hanane
If you have a poor sense of direction, are sensitive souls travelling alone, or enjoy a magnificent location and views, then Dar Hanane is NOT for you. Fortunately we came equipped with a sense of adventure and sure as hell found it when we arrived in the middle of a Marrakech side street, full of locals, smells, donkeys, sewage, to be pointed down an alley where apparently Dar Hanane was. Thank God for the kindly local boys who showed us the way; the door has no sign, the alleys have no signs, you just have to wander down tiny, threatening, dark smelly back alleys until you recognise a door. It's horrific, and as young women travelling alone, very, very scary.
Loved Dar Hanane
We stayed for six days in Dar Hanane over the Christmas period. It is situated north of the main souk area about 10 minutes walk from the J'maa el Fna, and is accessed through an alley. We were wonderfully looked after by Francoise, the proprietor, together with her cheerful and competent staff Aicha (terrific cook), Raja and Nadia. The house is beautifully designed with simple, eye-catching furniture, and has a terrace with roof-top views over to the Atlas. It is in a quiet position (although there is at present a construction site next door), and it is kept very clean. In winter however, the house can be cold, but there is portable heating.
My boyfriend and I stayed in Marrakech for 5 nights. The first 2 nights we stayed in Dar Bamileke which cost us the same price as Dar Hanane (90 euros per night). Dar Bamileke we thought was lovely with its huge, clean rooms, spacious communal relaxation areas (which we never had to share with anyone else) but it was nothing compared to Dar Hanane.
Loved Dar Hanane, an oasis in the bustling hot medina!
Dar Hanane was a beautiful, cool, calm riad run by a very friendly french lady called Francoise. We got a suite at a low rate because we went in early July, the hottest part of the year!! The room was gorgeous and overlooked a shady courtyard that was a wonderful retreat after a hot morning shopping in the souks. The staff were very helpful and the cook made us a delicious Moroccan meal one night. I would totally recommend this riad - although it is located in a dark alley way in the medina, not for the faint-hearted. It also lacks a pool but Francoise provided passes for a beautiful complex elsewhere. All in all, its a great place to stay - but maybe go during low season if you suffer from the heat.
