“Peaceful riad with green courtyard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

A small and peaceful little riad about 15 mins walk from Place Djema el Fna ( the east, in area Ben Saleh.) I would recommend it for its price category (budget.) It has rooms around a small courtyard planted with lots of greenery. Two rooms lead onto a private inner balcony. There is a roof terrace to lounge on. What we liked: the lady running the place is very friendly and helpful, and she cooks very well; breakfast often involves some very tasty local pancakes; tajines and salads are delicious for lunch/dinner; the rooms are a decent size for 2 occupants. What we liked less: the bathroom sink kept clogging up and the shower was a bit off; not much of a view from the terrace; a bit of a trek to the central square.

Room Tip: Ask for the room(s) that lead to a private inner balcony - first floor.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2010

I spent a delightful one week stay at Dar El Calame. A quiet and restful atmosphere, clean spacious rooms decorated with taste and a helpful, efficient and always discreet Hafsa who takes care of everything and makes you feel like at home. Once you step in from the animated, crowded Medina, right into the patio with its fountain and trees surrounding it you just find yourself propelled into the most peaceful spot on earth.

In a nutshell, an affordable and cosy haven within a magic city wherein every single place to be is never farther than a dozen minute walk. Definitely deserves to be spotted on one’s road book.
