A beautiful guesthouse, everything lived up to our expectations. We were met at the airport, taken to the riad and welcomed with the traditional glass of tea.
Our room was beautifully appointed, all the staff helpful and friendly. We were booked into a spa as requested the next day and provided with clear instructions and a map to find our way to and from the guesthouse.
Amina (not sure of the spelling!) cooked us a special (birthday) dinner on the terrace - the hero being a delicious lamb, fig & walnut tagine - which was truly memorable.
After a day out in bustling, noisy Marrakech, it was a beautiful haven to return to at night or just spend time in relaxing.

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Dar One Marrakech
Questo è un incantevole piccolo riad, a 2 minuti dal Palais Bahais. L'arredo è molto alla moda, la terrazza sul tetto è fantastica per rilassarsi e prendere il sole. Era bellissima la grande vasca incavata nel bagno e il lavandino era il più grande che avessi mai visto. C'erano fiori freschi in camera e accappatoi che aggiungevano un bel tocco di classe. Soggiornerei ancora qua se tornassi ancora a Marrakesh.
Loved the decor
Lovely small riad, tucked away a short 2 mins from palais bahais.
The decor is very trendy, great roof terrace for relaxing and sunbathing. Loved the large sunken bath in the bathroom and the largest sink I've ever seen. Fresh flowers in the room and bathrobes add a nice touch. I'd stay here again on our next visit to Marrakesh.
J'ai adoré la décoration
J'ai adoré ce petit Riad, situé en retrait à 2 minutes du palais Bahais. La décoration est très branchée, il y a une super terrasse sur le toit pour se détendre et bronzer. J'ai adoré la grande baignoire dans la salle de bains, et je n'avais jamais vu un lavabo aussi grand. Il y avait des fleurs fraîches dans la chambre et les robes de chambres sont une charmante attention. J'y retournerai lors de notre prochaine visite à Marrakech.
We loved our stay at Riad Dar One
At the end of May 2007 we stayed three nights at Dar One.
This riad is, like most riads, relatively small and has about 5 rooms. We selected the riad for its superb modern design and location.
In our opinion the owner has very good taste. We liked everything: the rooms, the patio, the roof terrace, and all the details (such as the highly polished walls). We loved the riad so much we took about 25 pictures of the place.
In the end we stayed in two different rooms (the others were already booked).
Having breakfast or simply relaxing at the roof terrace is a heavenly experience, despite the heat of Marrakech.
The riad is well located within Marrakech's medina. It is close to the Palais Bahia and a 10 minute walk from the Jemaa el-Fna square.
Moreover, the service of the hotel is very good. Everyone was very attentive. Everytime we needed to take a taxi, someone from the hotel came along to make sure the taxi driver knew where to go to.
We also highly appreciated the dinner recommendations the owner, Jean Peres, gave us. The suggestions he made were spot on and he well understood what we were looking for. We very much enjoyed eating at Bô & Zin (very stylish) and Dar Zellij.
We will return to magical Marrakech and we will then again without a doubt stay at Dar One.

Ein wunderschönes neues Riad in Marrakesch
Wir fanden dieses Riad im Internet. Es ist einfach etwas ganz Besonderes. Jean und sein Team sorgten dafür, dass wir uns vom ersten Augenblick an wie zuhause fühlten. Das Riad ist neu renoviert worden, der Stil ist beruhigend und edel. Es ist klein und die Terrasse war wunderschön. Die Zimmer sind sehr komfortabel und das Bad ist super. Es hat uns super gut gefallen.
Un bellissimo e nuovo Riad a Marrakech

Il riad è stato rinnovato da poco in uno stile bello e raffinato, è piccolo e ha una bellissima terrazza e camere molto confortevoli. Anche i bagni sono stupendi. Ce ne siamo innamorati!

... and-sorry long lunch together to sink back cokes and plates of fries to atone for the festivities. Being Friday there were additional prayers going on and we sat for a time outside our hotel watching those praying during the day. Throughout the trip Ramadan has been a key part of the lives of those around us: the sleepy run of life during the day as shops remained closed and restaurants have no reason to trade; the bustle of the post-break fast evening and cities coming ...
... hammers on tin as intricate metal designs were carved onto lanterns and jewelry; metalworkers cutting and welding steel, making larger furniture pieces and household items. We found our way to a traditional Moroccan apothecary where the animated pharmacist gave us a tactile tour of the many herbal remedies that Moroccans have been using for centuries, our arms being a lather of oils, ointments and balms by the end. A few of us grabbed a quick massage with argan ...

Had a late lunch with another local family featuring a yummy tagine of chicken, potato, carrots and peas, with more crisp, bowl-shaped homemade bread.
If you are an adventurous foodie, make sure to try some Marrakech street food. One of my best memories is ...

The belly dancing is great fun to watch, and the dancers are very friendly with all of us, happy to pose for photos, and have some fun with our group. Of course, a few tips for them helps them to have fun, too.
A very fun evening! We are excited to see what the square looks like during day time hours.
Tomorrow is a full day of exploring the uniqueness of Marrakesh! ...
... over the top and peaceful, but not as colorful as the medina.
We continued for a nice ride through the High Atlas Mountains. We drove through fields of wheat being harvested by hand. We drove by camels walking in the road. We drove for an hour without seeing another car. After this lovely ride we went to a great little french place for lunch back in Marrakech. I wish I could remember the name or even where it was but it was ...
