Super Riad, comme à la maison grace à Zak & JamilaPosted Sep 15, 2015 on Hotels
Riad magnifique en plein coeur de la medina de Marrakech. On s'est senti comme chez nous, à l'aise et surtout gràce à Zakaria et Jamila, de superbes hôtes qui ont été aux petits soins avec nous. Notre prochain séjour à Marrakech se fera trés certainement chez Dar Crystal. Abdelnacer

The hotel itself is nice. It has a pool in the inner courtyard that is really refreshing in the summer heat. The bed's mattress however is really hard and was uncomfortable. The address of the hotel is wrong and no taxi driver knew how to get there. It is also impossible to reach by taxi as we found out and it is quite hard to reach and a long walk especially in 45C heat. We did not have an accurate phone number from the website and so we had terrible trouble getting there. Fortunately the locals are quite helpful and helped us find it eventually. The breakfast is nothing special but the atmosphere is good. its near the big square and the staff are helpful. The staff try to advise you on a number of activities but the ones they offer to arrange in their hotel brochure are quite expensive.

Ottima locationPosted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: Cordialità e posizione.
Cons: Nulla in particolare.
Location: Posizione comodissima per visitare principali attrazioni.
Riad molto confortevole, le camere sono tutte carine e pulite. La posizione è davvero molto pratica per visitare tutte le attrazioni principali della città (10 minuti a piedi dalla pizza Jemaa El Fna, 5 minuti a piedi da Palazzo El Bahia). Personale gentilissimo, disponibile ad assistere ad ogni richiesta, colazione ricca e varia ogni mattina! Nel complesso davvero una bella esperienza.

Excellent staffPosted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: Helpful staff, aircon which heated the room, quiet area, courtyard to eat and relax.
Cons: Getting the room we had booked. Non- smoking building.
Location: In the Mellah area which is a relatively quiet warren of streets. Once orientated it was easy to get to and from the centre of Marrakech.
We stayed here for 2 nights in February. The room we had booked was not available, we were given a ground floor room for the first night and offered the suite on the top floor for the second. This offer was made several times, but we couldn't face packing and unpacking for one night. It was also cold when we visited, and the suite on the top floor was quite exposed. There were two issues with the ground floor room. The first was a platform bed that was difficult to get in and out of. The second was that it was necessary to have the door open on to the courtyard as there was no window. Unfortunately this meant that the room was filled with cigarette smoke when people were smoking in the courtyard. This gave us sore throats and we came back with our clothes smelling of smoke.

gem in MarrakechPosted Dec 30, 2014 on Hotels
It is a hidden gem in Marrakech. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but from the inside it is quite nice. Friendly service and a convenient location make this a great choice.

Faded gloryPosted Aug 21, 2014
Apart from a hiccup at arrival (taxi wasn't at the bus station tower us as arranged) and a hiccup when leaving (taxi driver thought he was taking us to the bus station not Casablanca airport) we really enjoyed our stay. The riad is in need of a little tlc but Zak and Shakib were very friendly and helpful hosts.

Nettes Riad extrem zentral und dennoch ruhig!Posted Jun 4, 2014
Pros: Perfekt: das Zimmer auf dem Dach mit eigener Dachterrasse
Cons: Leider waren die Matrazen steinhart.
Location: Zentral am Bahia Palast, so dass alles zu Fuß unternommen werden kann!
Hilfreiches Team, flexibel. Ideal gelegen für die Erkundung von Marrakech!

Impossibly NicePosted Mar 27, 2014
Cons: Perhaps a smoking area could be created for guests who wish to smoke, to avoid guests who do not wish to smell smoke having to experience it.
Location: There are many shops, museums and places to eat nearbye. I have eaten more on this trip then any of the other 30 countries I have been to.
I normally prefer to say at least one thing negative about each place I stay in order to ensure it is a real review. Unfurtunately Dar Crystal was outstanding in every respect. The location was close to many interesting venues, the staff were helpful and the environment was relaxing.

Great lace to stay.Posted Nov 26, 2013
Pros: Efficient, effective staff. Good situation.
Cons: Guidebook to hotel could include more information (about wi-fi, local eating places, routes to centre of town, buse routes e.g.)
Location: Is v close to Jewish cemetery, local market, Bahia palace, the lovely Place des Ferblantiers. Easy walking distance to the main square, souks, etc.
Lovely place to stay. Good traditional design, not too in your face showy. Staff wonderfully helpful and friendly. Great breakfast, effective wi-fi. Roof top well-designed. Within walking distance of the centre of the old city. Situated in the v interesting old Jewish quarter.
