“Our Xmas angels in Marrakech :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

My friend and I stayed at Dar Tiflet over Christmas for 5 nights.

Patrice and Marc were absolute gems, we've never had such friendly hosts!
Thanks to their directions we never once got lost within the medina, they helped us plan day trips and recommended wonderful restaurants. As two females on our first visit to Morocco we had been a little apprehensive but thanks to all Patrice and Marcs help we felt safe and streetsmart.

The riad itself is very stylish and comfortable, we stayed in the blue and then the yellow room both of which are lovely. Breakfast on the terrace every morning was delicious. Its in a brilliant location, about five minutes from the main square and five minutes in the opposite direction to the Medersa and museum of Marrakech.

In summary, SUPERB!
Thank you Marc and Patrice!

I've never had a better hotel! If this trip advisor would let me I'd ray dar tiflet 6 stars!
Marc the hotel keeper offered us a free 3 hour tour that brings out the best of the city that is never put in guide books or arranged tours. Breakfast is delicious, and the building is beautiful!

Patrice and Marc were so welcoming and friendly! They really make this Riad stand out from the rest. Patrice takes time to go through the area, and is on hand at all times to answer any questions. He will even take you around the souks if you want. They got us our bus tickets to go to Essouira (Fantastic place), took us to a restaurant on our first night when we arrived late, to a pharmacy when my husband got ill, and even bought a bottle of gin for us at the supermarket! The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The rooftop is a lovely place to relax. We had a wonderful time at dar Tiflet, and used it as our base to come back to whilst visiting other places in Morocco. Can not recommend enough, we will be back!!

We stayed in the Red Room in Dar Tiflet. The first thing I noted was how well-located the riad is – just 5 minutes or so from the main square, but tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac enabling you to get away from the hustle and bustle. Our host, Patrice, went out of his way to welcome us to Marrakech and gave us two guided tours, pointing out useful landmarks to help us make our way back to the riad without getting lost! He also advised us on where to eat, what to see, what to avoid and on tipping etiquette, and was happy to answer all of our questions. It was great to stay in a converted riad and the room was very clean and comfortable. There was also a terrace which had views over the city, sun loungers and a shaded area (as well as a collection of cats!). Breakfast was included on the first morning and Patrice gave us the option of earl grey or local tea. I would highly recommend Dar Tiflet as a friendly, inexpensive, quiet and comfortable place to stay in the centre of Marrakech.

Hello Robert E, thank you so much for having taking time to write a wonderful review about us, and thank you for writing all these details..including the cats ! Here we live with birds on terraces, or cats, rarely both at the same time indeed... we chose the less noisy finally ! It seems that you had memorable holidays including your trip to South Atlas, we are very happy that our guests discover Morocco for it's best, as we did a decade ago. Have a wonderful time back in London, see you maybe later for another exploration of our country. Kind regards from all DarTiflet'team.

We stayed at Dar Tiflet for 4 nights in September. Marc met us at the post office in Place D'Jeema el Fna and it was a short walk to the riad. We were fresh off the night train from Tangier and in need of reviving. Marc brought us tea on the terrace and allowed us to use the showers whilst our room was being prepared.

Marc took us for a tour on 2 occasions with nuggets of facts and recommendations to point out how to get to the places we wanted to visit. .I was surprised at the peacefulness of Dar Tiflet considering its proximity to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. It was a welcome oasis from the hectic streets. Another useful bonus was being able to use the kitchen,so eating in was an option.

Dar Tiflet represents fantastic value for money in the heart of the medina.

Hello Charlotte, thank you for this fantastic review and especially for Marc, who, like a lot of French people, is always anxious to speak english with Brits ! We are really proud to read that the tours with him were helpful. Dar Tiflet received recently a lot of guests from Bristol, we wonder why (are you frequent travellers around there ?) so we think about developing the links with the brilliant city from Massive Attack and Tricky ! Have a very nice time back in Europe, Kind regards from DarTiflet's Team.

Superb budget accommodation. Clean rooms, very helpful owners Marc and Patrice. Great location, but a little hard to find, even with a map! If you are looking for a cheap alternative in Marrakech, you can’t go wrong with this place. Thank you for being so hospitable.

Riad Dar Tiflet is amazing! We took a long time looking for a riad in marrakech which was in a good location and within our price range and we found exactly that with Dar Tiflet. This place far exceeded our expectations.
We stayed in the Red Room (bathroom inside) and it was perfect. Air conditioning was much appreciated after a hot day walking around and as the week progressed, it wasn't needed as much as the walls became "fresher" and cooler.
When we arrived in Marrakech we were greeted from the taxi by Patrice and given mint tea and biscuits which we were so grateful for after a long day of travelling. After resting up and unpacking, Patrice took us out on an amazing tour of the souks, introducing us to all of his friends in the Place des Epices and the local hammam. This first tour was invaluable to our trip because it really gave us a good grasp of the area.
Patrice gave us another tour of the north to find the Musée de Marrakech, Maison de la Photographie and Ben Youssef. We then walked back through the souks with him where he took us to the fabric dyers and helped haggle our first purchase.
The next day Patrice personally drove us out to the countryside to visit a small hotel with a swimming pool. After this he then picked us up and drove us to The Palmeraie for a camel trek. This day was one of the best days of our holiday and we wouldn't have had it if it weren't for Patrice. He is truly amazing. We could not believe the amount of effort and trouble he was going to for us and is an outstanding host. He helped us everyday with directions on the map he provided us with, giving us recommendations for the places to eat and visit and even organising our day trip to Essaouira.
On top of all this the breakfasts were amazing, Patrice even got us 'prickly pears' (Figue de Barbarie) when we said we had never tried them.
The riad itself is great as well. We spent many hot afternoons sunbathing on the roof terrace or just relaxing in the breakfast area reading and enjoying the company of Beldi the cat.
Thank you Dar Tiflet for making this a holiday we shall never forget. Do yourselves a favour and stay here for a perfect holiday in Marrakech.

Hello Ellie and Co! Thank you so much for this very complete and awesome review...and the cats of the terrace are so happy to become famous on internet now !! We were lucky to have enough time all together for visiting some places - I was very curious to see camels of the Palmeraie again, and the pictures there are very funny ! A long stay of 9 days like you had allow us to have a great moments, you are lucky to be students with huge holidays in September ! Take care and have a wonderful time back at the University. Kind regards, from Patrice and DarTiflet Team, Marc and Rachid.

Riad Dar Tiflet is a smart authentic Riad in the heart of the old medina.

All commodities are at international standards, 5 bathrooms for 4 bedrooms, with WIFI connection... Our terrace is much appreciated by his panoramic view and his 3 independant parts. ... more   less
