Dar Nour El Houda – an oasis in the heart of Marrakech!

1er étage 1_resultatExperience the wonders of time-travel by visiting the well preserved thousand year old medina of Marrakech with its maze of narrow streets peppered with markets, mosques, madresas and museums.

For the adventurous traveller it is an experience you will never forget and will wish to return to, being overwhelmed with colours, sights, sounds and smells. And the only way to really experience Marrakech is by staying within the medina itself in a riad (traditional Moroccan house with rooms around a courtyard).

We would be happy to host you at Dar Nour El Houda, a British owned riad of the highest standards. A real oasis with an olive tree in the middle of our courtyard and a roof terrace with relaxing areas that includes views to the Atlas Mountains.

Our riad is five minutes walk to the famous Ben Youssef Mosque and Madresa. It is also a fifteen minute walk to the famous Jamaa El Fna square. We pride ourselves on our customer service as well as unbeatable value for a boutique quality riad rated 5 stars by Tripadvisor.


DSC01142_resultatOur prices range from £41 to £51 per room, but for a short time the new owners are offering a 20 percent discount for direct booking using the code DAR20PCENT (please note this offer cannot be combined with other offers). This means that rooms range from £33 to £41 or an amazing £16.50 to £20.50 per person per night, and this includes a stylishly presented breakfast of tea/filtered coffee, freshly squeeDéjeuner_resultatzed juice and a continental meal.

You can also enjoy a fabulous leisurely 3-course meal (visit our website for images) for an additional fee of £13 per person, many of our guests say that the meal they have at the riad is the best they have whilst in Marrakech. Please note: in keeping with cultural and religious sensitivities all food served at the riad is halal using local suppliers and we also do not serve alcohol.

For a small charge of £13 (upto 3 people) we will also collect you from the airport and bring you straight to our riad in a modern comfortable vehicle, an option we very strongly advise our guests to take so that they can be orientated with the small streets and geography of Marrakech by our staff before venturing out to discover the city on their own.


You can combine a stay at Dar Nour El Houda with direct flights from Ryanair or Easyjet from a range of UK airports with return flights starting from an amazing £58.

We also now offer the option of allowing guests to rent the entire riad at the price of £150 per night. This includes breakfast and daily cleaning, but is not a self-catering option.
