All of this makes for a fun experience but this room is not suitable for guests with restricted mobility. It can be used as an intimate double, at no extra charge

Two stunning coupola domes decorated with intricate plaster work and stunning hand crafted Fez style lamps complete the unique atmosphere.

"The location turned out to be perfect: wondrously close to the energy and charm of Jemaa el Fna, within a very easy stroll of taxi access, stalls, colour, food, noise, smells, shoes, jewels, cats, music lining the streets - and yet, the moment you set foot in the riad, it's steeped in peace and silence. I learned that my room was originally a hammam, and the cosy little nook where the bed is just won me over completely... Next time I come back, I'd love to explore Riad Star and Riad Cinnamon, their other two properties. I'm sure they must be as unique and beautifully done as this one. I booked through HipMarrakech.com, and they were dazzlingly efficient and accommodating - the whole process was seamlessly smooth, and I'd definitely recommend it. In fact, there's nothing about this place that I wouldn't recommend!"

RG, Arusha, Tanzania

"This Riad was an absolute dream! The rooms are stunning with such fantastic attention to detail; spotlessly clean, all the necessary toiletries and more, the most comfortable beds and the best service we could have wished for! There are roses and candles everywhere which just add to the beautiful romance of the place - perfect for couples!"

Jess, Sucre, Bolivia

"Dar habiba was the perfect place to stay. Hidden away within the back streets of the Medina yet only a short walk from the main square. It's a peaceful little hideaway and I could not fault it if I tried. I wont give too much away as I do not want to take away its magic but I would recommend it 100%. Our stay could not have been any more pleasant. We were looked after by Aziz who really could not have done anymore for us, he was there at our beck and call and was more than happy to answer our endless questions about Morocco! A truly great guy! We were given a phone with his number on which we could call if we were lost, the streets can be a little confusing and we did need to call him a couple of times to which he came and found us within minutes. The breakfast was great! On the last day we opted for eating dinner at the riad, one of the ladies made us a lovely chocolate cake for dessert. We also had the chance to meet Abdul, the manager of the riad who again did everything to ensure our stay was one to remember."

Amrita, Gravesend, United Kingdom

"Our experience with the hammam at Dar Habiba was perfect. The room is inviting and warm. The attendant was the BEST hammam attendant in our whole 3 week trip in Morocco (better than even the 5 star hotels). She had such an attention to detail and took such pride and care in her movements that she brought it to an art form.
Thank you so much for our experience."

A Guest

"Absolutely beautiful riad, with all of the western comforts subtly incorporated into a truly authentic Moroccan riad. Perfectly sized rooms with incredible ceilings, beautiful roof terrace, brilliant complementary breakfast with mint tea. The staff were incredible, offering us brilliant service and great advice about our time in the city. Couldn't fault it at all!"

Molly, Cambridge, United Kingdom

"The free Hipmarrakech App has proved amazing for our clients. It gives them confidence to navigate the medina knowing they can always find their way back our house, even with NO data roaming switched on. Further it locates many restaurants in Marrakech that our guests like (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and then helps them find their way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Hip Marrakech

Dar Habiba is located in a quiet and exclusive district between Rue Riad Zitoun El Kedim and Rue Riad Zitoun El Jedid. Surrounded by other luxury Riads it is only a stone's throw (or two) from the beautiful Bahia and Baadi Palaces.

It's hard to believe how tranquil it all is given it's only a few minutes walk from the tumultuous excitement of Place Jemaa El Fna in one direction, or great bars and restaurants such as the Kozy Bar and Le Tangier in the other.

When arriving from the airport you'll be dropped off at the taxi rank at the end of Rue Riad Zitoun El Kedim, where there are usually plenty of porters to help transport your bags the rest of the way.

Walking along Derb Jdid gives you no clue to the beautiful and mysterious interiors that hide behind the metre thick walls either side.
