          It was beautifully designed, with different seating areas and very friendly staff who go out of their way to make you comfortable. The rooms were stunning with small pool downstairs

          The location is not easy to find- dark alleyways

          Staff were fantastically friendly. Decor was cool.

          It's a bit hard to find (Jewish quarter).

          The service - Bruno had upgraded us to a suite and kindly did not charge us for the additional bed. He was a friendly host who was very happy to help us with any queries. Also we had to leave very early the next day before their normal breakfast time, but they still provided us with breakfast and despite him saying that it would have to be a basic breakfast, he still gave us chocolate croissants and fresh juice! The courtyard was gorgeous with rugs, cushions and candles that you really enjoyed spending time there. Price was really great value for what you received.

          I found one two many hairs (that were not mine) in the bed (they possibly could have come off the rug but not sure) and there was still hair in the shower drain. Speaking of the drain, it was tiny and because of the hair that was there the shower flooded easily. I didnt like the shower either because it was a hand held one, but all the hotels in Morrocco that I stayed at had the same issue.

          quiet place in a buzzy town, staf is very kind and make you feel at home, atmosphere in hotel in nice. Interesting places are all easy to reach, also by walking. We arrived in the night in the airport and taxi was arranged by the hotel. Tea and sweet things while we were waiting for the taxi when we left was a nice attention. If we come back to Marrakech, we'll come back to Dar Crystal.

          The hotel is located not so far away from the central square. The owner was very helpful, he gave us a better room at no additional cost. The breakfast is delicious.

          Since the windows overlook the interior yard, one can be disturbed by noisy and smoking guests. The noise of the 4:25 mullah prayers cannot be avoided.

          Well I booked Dar Crystal on the net from my Hotel whilst staying in Casablanca, and I found it a truly terrific place to stay, the girls were wonderful, from the moment I got there, and did all possible to make it what is was, thankfully I can speak Spanish and a little Arabic. And as for Bruno . . . I felt I had known him for years. To all who want to stay . . . well go and enjoy. The breakfast was huperb. Thank you one and all.

          The hotel was so lovely and the staff were so accommodating. After a long day exploring marakech it was so relaxing to come back to Dar crystal. beautifully designed rooms, i slept so well every night even with the noise from outside

          The deck chairs on the top terrace need to be fixed

          I can't speak highly enough of Dar Crystal. It is like an oasis in Marrakesh that is nice to go back to after the hustle and bustle of the souks. The room and the bathroom is authentically and nicely decorated - their was all the luxuries one would want when staying in Marrakesh. The breakfast was nice and more than enough. The staff and the owner (Bruno) were really helpful and attentive.

          The only down point is that you may hear people talking when they are having breakfast (and you are still asleep). This is really only minimal noise though.

          the ryad itself was lovely and the staff were good

          Bed was Very hard - we did not sleep well at all so consequently we were very tired the next day and did not enjoy ourselves. The location was difficult to find and the breakfast was very basic and boring.

          I like everything about my stay at Dar Crystal.My husband and I wanted to experience the culture, go for walks, discover the essence of the people and life in the Medina.We got exactly that as Dar crystal is situated in the middle of it all.Everyone at Dar Crystal was full of advice of where to go,what to see,and even helped us when I was unwell.We could not have asked for a better place and the owner and his staff was excellent.Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

          I had initially thought I would cope with the continental breakfast, but that was my oversight.My tiny suggestion would be to have a choice of e.g. eggs, My diet did not tolerate that much sweet/pastry for breakfast. I preferred the local bread.All our other meals were superb.

          The staff was the best, we all felt like we were home. In the forst day the owner of the Riad, Bruno, sat with us, served a traditional mint tea and spend a good time explaning all about Marrakech, they won us there. The breakfast was very good, the shower always had hot water, the AC could be used to warm and cold the room, the beds were good, and the inner common area was really confortable. We use to call it our Oasis in the old town. Everything was perfect. The Riad is definitely one of the things we are going to be missing, made our stay in Marrakech be better. Thank you Bruno, Moustapha, Fadila, Fatma, all the staff.

          None. I am only sorry I couldn´t stay more

          It is sited in the old Mellah, down tiny back streets which are deserted at night and is quite scary walking home at night.
