Very nice traditional Riad in good location - easier to find than some! Service was excellent. Nice lounge area with cosy real fire (good on winter eves) and food (breakfasts and dinners) were very tasty. Room was not particularly spacious but we only booked a standard and it was big enough. Would recommend and visit again.

This hotel is situated nicely within walking distance of everything one needs to see in the walled old town of Marrakech. The staff is super friendly and helpful with everything and anything related to your stay. We had the hotel arrange for our hamam followed by a massage within their facility. It was excellent! This hotel was super clean and smelled just lovely everywhere. The food prepared by the hotel was also top rate. For our first visit to this memorable city, Riad Dar Anika truly added an exceptional touch of culture and elegance for a price that was incredibly affordable. This establishment will not disappoint!
