友人の紹介でここに泊まりました。中に一歩足を踏み入れてから、あまりの美しさに驚きました。モロッコの伝統的なリヤドで、壁に飾っている装飾から部屋に置いてある椅子、出していただいたお茶の器まで、ひとつひとつがとても美しいです。街の中心からは少し離れていますが、静かで過ごしやすい所。オーナーはとても気配りができる方で、滞在中全てが快適でした。旅行の中で、こんな特別な滞在が一日くらいあってもいいのではないかと思います。 I stayed here because my friend had recommended me this place. i was so surprise when I entered to the riad...how beautiful it was! The traditional decolations on the wall, beautiful chair in the room and antique tea glasses...everytthing in this riad is so beautiful. It is not in the city center but very quiet, good for staying. The...

A very cute Riad on the other side of the bridge from downtown, so you have to consider transportation if you want to get to the souk (open air market). The people there are exceedingly friendly and accommodating. If it is important to you, there is a hammam very close by, walking distance.

Beautifully decorated with Berber artefacts, clean and tidy riad, slightly away from the hustle of Ourzazate, fabulous dinners and breakfasts supplied by awesome hosts, full of information and helpfulness! Great views from the roof terrace, lovely breakfast area outside, staff knowledgable and have contacts and advice for furthering your travels. Highly recommended, and I will be visiting again.

Very nice riad with a typical berbère decoration. Perfect for families but also for group of friends. they organize some trips to the desert and all around ouarzazate. Everything is clean and the kitchen is always open. A bit far from the center which is perfect to relax in a quiet place

We certainly would not have found this on our own . Our guide booked it and we wondered where he was taking us on the drive through the back streets of the town . The rooms are very good and fortunately they serve dinner as we were a long way from any suitable restaurants . The dinner and breakfast were...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this riad. It's a wonderful place, full of warmth and character. The staff were incredibly friendly and hospitable; the food was excellent; and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I highly recommend it.

We found this small hotel in the Routard Guide en route to the desert. One of our extended family was unwell after the long drive and needed looking after quickly. After two days rest and cossetting, we reluctantly went on our way, sustained by simple good quality food and accommodation, among people with big hearts. Our journey was greatly enhanced...

This riad sits nicely over a small grove of palm trees and gardens. The staff took us in after another riad canceled our reservation and bent over backward to make sure we had a good impression of Ourzarzate and Morocco. The food was nice and we had a room on the roof with a beautiful terrace. It is possible to...

A very nice and comfortable riad at the edge of a southern neighbourhood of Ouarzazate. We felt very safe and at home here. Some friends and family walked in and out of the hotel - very wonderful - while we were eating a very nice meal, made by Hassan, one of our hosts. Sometimes the staff knew what we wanted,...

Dar Barbara, at the edge of Ouarzazate is a true oasis of peace and quiet. I hadn't planned on staying there, the CTM bus was held up by an accident on the pass and reaching my planned destination was out of the question. A friend made the reservation for me and I was told to phone upon arrival. At one...
