This Riad really is an oasis of tranquility to retreat to when the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh takes its toll. The rooms are beautiful-we stayed in the Palmerie suite , which has the most amazing spacious bathroom with a double shower.The choice of places to relax ,aprt from your room,depending on temperature etc was great -roof terrace ,courtyard, 3...

Riad Tarabel is one of the most delightful places I have ever stayed. It was exactly as described by Mr and Mrs Smith and all previous reviewers on Trip Advisor. Peaceful; wonderfully restored; individual; special; some lovely spaces to unwind - several lounge areas and a lovely roof terrace. Take your pick for breakfast! But what really sets this hotel...

Exquisite, little gem of a hotel. Three fabulous rooms only but hotel will double in size next year. Perfectly private. Delightful staff and well organised by manageress Elsa. We felt like plutocrats, if only for the weekend...

I can't recommend this riad enough. From the start the service was personable, calm and nothing was too much. The riad is in a great location near the Palace Dar El Bacha, which is central, just before the souks and 2 moinnute round teh corner is a taxi area. Important to add that during the day it is sureally quiet... More

Do yourself a favour and stay here at this Riad. It's in a perfect location, just within the Medina walls and you get first class treatment from the staff. The free breakfast on the rooftop terrace is good enough reason to visit alone. Very enjoyable stay.

We are a family of four who landed at the Riad Tarabel as a result of the recent flight delays. A very positive recommendation given to us in the chaos at the airport and it certainly did not disappoint. Beautifully laid out and decorated to a very high and classy standard. Elsa and her staff treated us very conscientiously and... More

We've just spent 4 lovely days in Riad Tarabel together with our 4 grown up children. We were welcomed by our host Elsa who could not have done more to make it a perfect stay. Nothing is too much for her and her extremely kind and helpful staff. The Riad is very calm, clean and beautifully decorated. The rooms are... More

Nothing is too much trouble at this tiny but beautifully run Riad. Elsa the hostess is charming as are her staff and make you feel as if you are staying in their home. Perfectly situated for the souks this hotel deserves its rating as one of Tatlers Top 100 places to stay. We certainly hope to be lucky enough to... More

My wife and I stayed at this riad for two nights in mid-April, 2009. Even before we arrived, the riad distinguished itself for its incredible service. The riad provided complimentary pick-up from the train station. When we arrived Hamid greeted us and helped us with our luggage. We were the only ones staying at the riad (it currently has only...

We plan to return to Marrakech and the Riad Tarabel, which is an oasis of chic in the chaos of the old city. We especially enjoyed the subtlety of design (a smooth combination of contemporary and French colonial) compared with the sensory overload one feels outside the riad walls. Returning to the serene Tarabel after a long day exploring both... More
