The Dar Hasna resembles a Moroccan home more than it does a riad. Decorated by its French owner, the establishment boasts occidental objects and furniture, mixing in some oriental touches here and there. It enjoys a prime location, only 10 minutes away from Koutoubia.
Located in a small alley of Bab Ksour neighbourhood, 10 minutes from Koutoubia, the Dar Hasna is only a 15 minute walk from Jemaa El Fna square and 10 minutes by taxi from the airport.
We recommend you ask for a large room and avoid staying in the small and dark ground floor room. Keep in mind, however, that a dar is not actually a riad with an interior patio, but rather a small Moroccan house.
Inaugurated in 2008, the Dar Hasna occupies an old house that was renovated by its owner, who comes from the southwest of France. It belongs to the second category of riads (a local classification established by Moroccan authorities). Several years ago, it was used as Marrakech's court of trade. The building resembles a French bourgeois home rather than a Moroccan riad, due to its interior and the size of the complex. The terrace includes a small swimming pool with a fantastic view of Marrakech's rooftops, the Atlas, and Koutoubia.
Dar Hasna has 6 rooms and a small ground floor unit. The red and orange brick floors are covered with Persian carpets. Each room has its own style but all are equipped with air conditioning and a TV (international channels: English, French, Spanish). Some are decorated with framed black and white photos taken by American artists, others boast wicker chairs and a writing desk, and others still include lamps in the shape of a Buddha's head. One of the rooms is bigger than the rest and includes a bookshelf, a rocking chair, a wooden ceiling, and a stairway that leads up to the terrace. The bathrooms show a more marked Moroccan inspiration. They include brick floors and tadelakt-covered walls (a typically Moroccan lime plaster).
The hotel serves regional specialties, such as couscous, tajine, and other dishes. The manager of the Riad, Madame Claude, used to own a restaurant in France, which is the reason for the large number of recipes she has up her sleeve. Her favourite dessert: crème brûlée.
