Great location in the middle of the MedinaPosted Dec 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
This Riad was very difficult to find and we would not have found it without using instructions previously posted on Hotels.com. Suggest you take these with you if you visit this Riad. The only amendments we would suggest is that rather than turning left after the third "no stopping" sign you turn left at the third "no stopping" sign. As you do this, there will be the Dar Mimoun restaurant on the right hand side. At the third "no stopping" sign there is also a board on the arch indicating you should turn left. As you turn left you will see another arch ahead of you with a further turn left sign for Dar Limoun. Dar Limoun is marked No 25 by small tiles to the right and slightly above the door. If you accidentally pass or miss this door the next door is also numbered 25 but on the door itself. It is the first door only that gives you access to Dar Limoun so double back a few metres until you see a plain door with the numbered tiles. The location of this Riad was very good but we note that there are many other Riads in this area. So it may be wise to shop around to get the best deal.

5 mins from the busy Djemaa el FnaPosted Apr 21, 2012
Pros: Very close to Djemaa el Fna
Cons: No Wi-Fi
Location: Queit hotel just outside of the busy market area.
This is a small hotel in a reasonably quite area. The staff are friendly but quite difficult to get hold of. The only person who's always there is the cleaner who doesnt speak english. The hotel is kept quite clean but the room is not cleaned often enough. The bedding is generally clean & is changed every so often. The breakfast is ok. Normally given bread with marmalade, a boiled egg & some tea/coffee. Bathroom is ok & is cleaned every couple of days. The best thing about the hotel that it is very close to the main market Djemaa el Fna. You are able to go to the market as many times as you want during the day. Really enjoyed my stay there. Cant really complain about the hotel because its one of the cheapest you can get but I still feel it should be a little more cheaper. Also there is no wi-fi in the hotel which is a nightmare. There is access to internet via a computer which is kept in the managers room but this is not always available.

Rock Bottom RiadPosted Apr 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
Stayed 26/03/12 to 02/04/12. Headlines: No tea/coffee making facilities in the room (So take your own travel kettle. There were power points a plenty)). No high speed internet access or Wifi (but El Waha cafe 100 yards away has Wifi) Excellent location for access to Djeema el Fna and souks. Concierge service is a real bonus ensuring you and your possessions are safe. Unexpectedly breakfast was included (and there were no extras on the bill.) Room was quite OK and had air-con (Two rooms only have this) Plenty of hot water and a decent shower. This Riad was a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of the streets and "La Place" (Djeema el Fna). Personally I found the La Place manic and it "pleasures" wore thin after the first 24 hours but exploring the souks was much more pleasant. A day trip to Essauoira was the highlight for us and the Majorelle Gardens are a "must" I suspect the hyping of non-existant facilities will be common to many low cost Riads etc. Certianly I knew what not to expect and was thus not dissapointed. In summary both Marrakech and this Raid are best suited to a long weekend. We plan to return to Essaouira and would be quite happy to use Dar Limoun as an overnight stop en route. P.S. Directions given by others are accurate. The Riad is 100 yards down what in UK terms is an alleyway then turn left at the overhead sign for Dar Limoun, branch left and the door is first on the right. There is street lighting even on the side alleyways but it goes out about midnight so best to take a small torch just in case.

We were on the understanding that there was wifi at this riad there isnot not even close. The riad was old and not easy to find. Nowhere even close to the place on the map.

4 Nights in MarrakechPosted Dec 10, 2011 on Hotels.com
We stayed in the Dar Limoun for 4 nights in early December 2011. The Riad is perfectly situated for seeing the best sights that Marrakech has to offer - literally 2 minutes walk from the main square and in the opposite direction a short walk to the Bahia / Badi Palaces, etc. Despite this, as soon as you enter the building the noise and intensity of Marrakech is left behind so that you can relax. The entire building was very shaded so it would be a paradise in summer to escape the heat - as it wasn't too warm in December we were happy to see that the room had electric heating to keep us warm. That said, the roof terrace was a lovely place to relax and catch some sun. The room is pretty basic, but the plumbing worked well and we always had hot water in the en-suite shower. For the money we paid you honestly couldn't ask for any more - even the simple breakfast was a perfect way to start the day (also had the best mint tea I've ever drank). Finding the Riad wasn't too bad, but we would have struggled had I not read someone else's review. Basically you need to get towards the South-East corner of the main square (Jeema El Fna), where you will see (if you look ard enough) a road sign saying 'Alkadim'. Follow this busy road (more like a back alley) passing 3 'no stopping?' road signs and turn left down an even smaller alleyway when you see the small orange sign pointing out 'Dar Limoun'. You'll walk past a restaurant on the right - follow the alley-way towards the left and you will see a door with No. 25 on it. Ring the bell and you will be greeted. Simple really. We did a trip to the Atlas mountains, arranged by the owner, which was superb and the same price as we could find after lots of looking around - highly recommend this. Overall, superb - especially the location and considering the price. Would definitely return here and recommend to friends.

Dar LimounPosted Nov 22, 2011 on Hotels.com
I would like to start with somethhing nice first. When we arrived in the hotel, we were lovely invited, the receptionist was very nice and helpful guy ;o). We paid straight away on our arrival, because we need leave early morning at 8 am. Location of this Dar is incredibly close to Djeema el Fna, about 5 minutes to walk. It's one of the typical house in the surroundings. Narrow streets, full of the shops and local people looking for to earn some money from tourist, by the help to them to find locations of hotels, etc.... About the room, not very good quality, water was leaking, no shampoo and soap, just hand wash. Towels were clean and bed was clean as well. I was in Marrakech many times, but this time the hotel wasn't resonable to price. It was the cheapiest hotel we found on the market, but for the conditions, it was still expensive one. But if you are looking for some cheap stay over night it's good place. As well if you are looking for some trip to the desert, they have some available, they are organising trips 1 - 3 days long trips to Sahara for reasonable price, this was very interesting for me. I think because of this I would like to go to this hotel again. Wifi is not in the room as its stated on internet, but receptionist has computer in his room, so he let us used it to check our departure flight. Hope this is helpful for your next trip ;o).

It workedPosted May 27, 2011
Location is great, just don't get the room on the ground floor (off of the courtyard) - then you hear everything. Also, bedding was old and while it seemed clean, it wasn't where I wanted to spend lots of time. And, the shower was hard to use - although- it might meet Marrakesh standards. For the backpacking type, it's a good fit and does the job.
