Dar Star has a (nearly) 360 degree view over Marrakech and the Atlas mountains. Beautiful!
It has just been renovated and it is quite stunning with detailed plaster-work on many walls and ceilings as well as beautiful smooth tadelakt wall plaster.
Dar Star has a fascinating history. In the 1940’s when Riad Star was the home of Jazz age superstar Josephine Baker, Dar Star formed the old kitchen & servants quarters. Now it is adjoining and can be rented on its own or if you have a large group in combination with Riad Star.

Guests can access all areas except for the staff office. When the riad is rented as a whole then guests can choose whether to have access to the kitchen or whether you prefer to have our staff cook for you and asssist with meals. Our rates always include a complimentary breakfast served at any time that is convenient for you.

We have a charity foundation called the Henna Cafe in Marrakech as we believe in responsible tourism. Guests can assist our efforts by visiting the cafe and you can even assist us with teaching our Moroccan pupils in one of their English/ french/ other Language classes. They love to hear the correct accents and interact with guests. This can be very helpful and yet just take up a small amount of time.
No smoking in the house please-only on the roof terrace.
Nearly a decade ago we fell in love with this amazing ancient city of Marrakech: its culture, its people and it's architecture. The garden courtyard homes or riads.
Over the years our love affair with Marrakech has blossomed and have restored four magnificent medina houses: Riad Star, Riad Cinnamon, Riad Papillon and Dar Habiba - slowly brought back to life using skilled artisans and our passion for creating beautiful and enchanting spaces: it has been a labour of love.
We warmly invite you to stay in one of our unique boutique hotels and experience the magic of Riad living in the heart of this world Heritage city. It is the small things that count: Wi-Fi, the loan of the local cell phone, our smartphone app with its indispensable off-line map and guide as well as our orange blossom scented toiletries, open fires, comfy bathrobes and Egyptian cotton linens.
What really makes us special is our welcoming and talented team. Each Riad has just a handful of rooms which means that we can provide a truly personal and attentive 24-hour concierge service. Our English-speaking staff are on hand to serve, advise and help you to enjoy your stay.
Marrakech is our passion we look forward to sharing it with you.
