This is a lovely hotel; beautifully decorated throughout with artworks (for sale) from around Africa, a large peaceful courtyard complete with pool where one can sit and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine (yes!) ; pleasant, comfortable rooms equipped with heating, air conditioning and a fan. The hotel restaurant dinner menu includes a few dishes we hadn't come... More

We stayed here for excursions around the desert and on our way to Merzouga to hook up with camel tour guides. The room we had was spacious. But the two things I remember the most were the lovely buffet style meals and being right on the edge of the desert. My wife and I took a walk after dusk and... More

Around the pool is a great area in which to relax, our room was lovely and the staff very helpful. The breakfast was buffet style - so a little less exciting than in a Riad, but nevertheless still good. See for yourself!

We spent one night at the hotel to break up the journey from Merzouga to Marrakech. The hotel is located a short walk from the centre of the town including the bus stop. It is located in a relatively quiet area ensuring a good nights sleep. Our room was clean and a good size. The room like the building as... More

Very nicely, traditionally decorated building with beautiful art pieces. Comfortable room, clean and cosy. Food was very good, and the staff is excellent. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area!

If you are looking for a bright and flashy chain hotel, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a real Moroccan hotel experience, then this restored and renovated Kasbah may be for you. Funky rooms, funky courtyard and funky restaurant. Lots of décor and art contribute to the charm and uniqueness of the property. Due to the intense... More

Positives – We stayed here to break up the drive from Marrakech to Merzouga (one of two overnight stays en route). We were not expecting much from Tinerhir, having expectations lowered by Lonely Planet. When we pulled up to the hotel we were expecting even less…but like much of the accommodation in Morocco, once inside, we were warmly welcomed into... More

We came in real late from Marrakesh as you cannot do 65 through the mountains and still take in all the sites on the way. There is a sign on the main street giving directions to the hotel. We had not eaten, and even though the restaurant was closing/closed, they graciously made us 3 meals at 11 PM. The staff... More

A very good hotel. Room had A/C and fan so really cool all night. Great views from the terrace ( although the town is nothing to write home about) The food was really good and the chicken tagine was, perhaps the best (big call) Swimming pool is functional, the gardens could do with a spruce up and look a bit...

Tomboctou Hotel has the original flavour of a Moroccian kashba. Not prentending to be a high standard accomodation, the hotel has all the services and the staff is very responsive. The rooms are confortable and fresh in summer, there are plenty of decoration objects which contribute to create the enviroment. It is not a brand new hotel therefore don't expect... More
