Unfortunately we only able to stay for one night, but when we return to Marrakech we will definitely book again at this family run riad. The service was impeccable, and the lady who greeted us was very polite, friendly, and very efficient in booking our airport transfer. We arrived late so had no food or drink, and were very tired,...

We stayed here a couple of nights. The family that owned the hotel were very accommodating and polite. Unfortunately, we had the room right by reception and the kitchen so a little noisy. There is a rather quaint higgledy-piggledy roof garden which is a real suntrap. Recommended for a brief stay, if you're on a budget.

Most reviews I've read here before making a decision to stay at this riad are absolutely to the point. The place is very nicely decorated, the hosts are wonderful, and their homemade food is delicious. However, I would like to recommend everyone to slightly lower their expectations. No, I don't want to diss the riad on anything. But it is... More

My husband and I visited Marrakesh for the first time and loved our stay here. However, we would highly recommend contacting the Riad in advance of your flight to let them know when to collect you - if you're unfamiliar with the medina it's extremely difficult to navigate (and we were taken advantage of by a "helpful" stranger). That said,... More

After 7 days of trekking/climbing in High Atlas mountains followed by a 3 day sahara desert tour, i settled in here so i could explore, sight see, shop and get lost in and around Marrakech. When you first walk in you are transported in a oasis, very nice rooms, loved the terrace and the common room. Food was great, staff... More

The hotel was a charmingly traditional riad, and comfortable. Sara the owner's daughter, who manages the riad was most helpful and gave us lots of helpful advice. We would strongly advise anyone to contact her to arrange a pickup from the airport . We did not, and were ripped off. Sara was upset that we had missed her e-mail telling... More

Riad Tamarrakecht is the perfect base within the bustling medina. The riad is impeccably decorated. We stayed for 4 days and stayed in 3 of the rooms, each unique, luxurious, and beautiful. The breakfast on the terrace is the perfect start to any day. Sara's welcome started our trip with a great energy. She and her family are excellent hosts.... More

My mother and I stayed at this Riad and the end of our recent trip to Morocco. It was a lovely end to our stay! The Riad itself is beautiful, with stunning bedrooms, and the food was the best had during our trip. We had clean fridge with water and juices, and the room had air conditioning. Once you know...

We stayed at this riad at the start of our trip to Morocco, and it was a great introduction to Marrakech. It's absolutely true that the location won't be for everyone - if you want a more generic holiday experience you're best off staying in the new town. But if you want an authentic experience Tamarrakecht is a great place... More

I stayed in this riad on my first trip to Marrakech, and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was so helpful in giving us directions and ideas of things to do, as well as making sure we were having a comfortable stay. The riad is about 10-15 minutes from the square and is beautifully decorated. The room my boyfriend... More
