“Marrakech, Riad Dar Othmane and Hassan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We stayed in this accommodation for a five night period in January 2013, not the best time to be in this part of the world except one can expect to be one of the few tourists types wondering around. The Riad was clean and appeared to be well maintained and is in the center of the Madina...make sure you call ahead upon arrival so that Hassan can meet you where the taxi will drop you off and direct you...otherwise, I can almost guarantee you that you will get lost, even with a GPS locator. Better yet, have the Riad arrange transport for you from the rail station or the airport. This service even includes a luggage service where a man appears out of no where upon your arrival in the old city and takes your luggage in a hand cart directly to the Riad....don't forget to give him a bit of a tip to keep him happy. The confirmation email for this service from the Riad will recommend a recommended amount.

We recommend this friendly accommodation. Inquire about a meal prepared and served in the Riad...excellent food and a bargain.

Room Tip: Just ask Hassan, he will take care of you.

We are just back from 7 nights in Marrakech and highly recommend Riad Dar Othmane! Hassan was a perfect host and spoilt us for our wedding anniversary. He was very helpful and attentive and made us feel like part of the family, showing us the best way to get about the medina and to the square etc. You simply MUST try his Tagine, it is excellent! Breakfast is tasty and filling and the rooms are very clean and tidy. It is a beautiful Riad and is a quiet oasis amongst the busy Medina. We look forward to staying here again when we next go to Marrakech.

We stayed in this Riad for 5 nights and we could not have find anything like this!

Service provided by Hassan was excellent, breakfast was plentiful and really tasty, the room was very cosy and really clean!

At the beginning we thought it was quite far from the square but it allowed us to experience the real Medina and real locals' life away from tourists! And when we got used to the way it was just a 15min. walk full of wonders and real Marrakech culture.

I would advise you to accept the airport pick up service provided by Hassan, it is quite difficult to find the first time!

It was an incredible experience and I would encourage everyone to stay with Hassan!

Hassan is very nice and helpful. The place is small but still luxurious as a riad should be, price is incredibly low for the quality, welcome tea and breakfast are very good. Just consider that rooms are a bit narrow (but long) with no privacy as walls are subtle (but there are few rooms, so it's not a noisy hotel), anyway clean place, good furniture and decent bathrooms. Considering the price, it's the best you can have!

Everything was more than perfect during our stay in this wonderful riad. We had spacious, clean room, nicely decorated, very nice patio and interior. Plenty of hot water, excellent service and a great quiet place to relax in the busy medina. Hassan was extremely helpful to provide any information and treat we needed. He is always there to help and offer anything needed. Thank you so much for making our stay wonderful!

Location was difficult to find, google maps points to a different place (this was the correct one: 31.630976,-7.981172). There is even no sign on the door! So impossible to find by your own. Hassan gives good advice by email to find it, by looking for trolley men.

A superb, tiny Riad 5 minutes walk from the main square. Still no street noise.
Hassan, the manager, gives you all the help you need, and lets you alone when you prefer that.

There are no signs for getting there, so my advice if you don't know Marrakech very well is to take the possibility to be caught at the airport by a taxi from the hotel.

Firstly a big thankyou to Hassan,you made our visit very special. Everything from taxi to & from airport was arranged by Hassan. Your welcome with tea, juice & cakes was lovely & you saying this is now your home made us feel so welcome. We ate our first evening meal made by Hassan, it was delicious as were the breakfast. Hassan is always there if needed with his calm & so pleasant manner.
The rooms were everything they looked & as described on the site.
I don't think you will find better value for money & we booked on the reviews mainly because of Hassan, he even takes the time to show you the easiest route to go & explore the hectic shops etc.
A great place to stay in every way.
