“An authentic haven set close to the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you're looking for a base from which to explore Marrakech at a reasonable price and with the most helpful of landlords then you would be hard pressed to find anywhere better than the Riad Dar Tiflet. The rooms are individually decorated in traditional Moroccan style and, although basic compared to European hotel standards, are perfectly adequate. The rooftop terraces are a wonderful place to partake of breakfast and to relax in the evening after tackling the souks.Patrice and Marc will do whatever they can to make your stay a pleasure and are a font of useful local information. We would recommend trips to the Jardin Majorelle and it's Berber Museum as well as the Ensemble Artisanal for hassle free shopping for all the handicrafts available locally.

Hello there ! Thank you so much for writing this helpful review and giving your tips for the next travellers ! You came in the "low season" and as we said to each other, you're right,; in this case, the official handcrafts' shop (ensemble artisanal) is a comfortable solution for easy and comfortable shopping, if you're strtessed by the souks ! I remember you found treasures there ! And we give the restaurant you recommended us close to Jardin Majorelle to our new guests, it seems to be a very good adress ! Thanks for all and for you open minded way of discovering Marrakech, hope to welcome you back ! Very kind regards from Dar Tiflet's team, Patrice, Marc, Rachid

We were told by another couple this riad was decent, so we thought we would try our luck (the current one we had wasn't good). We arrived at the riad without a booking, hoping there would be a free room, but unfortunatly it was full! The people running the place kindly let us use the internet and a map to try find somewhere else to stay. My tip, book in advance, there is a reason why it was full!!!

The best thing about staying in Riad Dar Tiflet is having Patrice on hand to help you get oriented in Marrakech. Staying in the medina can be a little daunting at first but is definitely worth it and Patrice made a huge effort to look after us (collecting us from the taxi, taking us to our restaurant on the first night and taking us on a tour of the medina in the morning).

Thanks to Patrice and Marc, our wonderful hosts, my husband, myself and our 10 month old baby could not have wished for a better experience in the medina of Marrakech. Their kindness, attention to detail, and friendly assistance, which included a walking tour of the medina, were second to none. Marrakech is an amazing city, and this riad is the perfect place from which to visit - really close to the main square, but quiet and secluded. Safe, peaceful, with a beautiful roof terrace, their rooms are lovely, cool and a welcome refuge from the heat and bustle of the city! Can't recommend them highly enough. Really hope we can come back and see you soon guys! x

Room Tip: We had the red room as its the largest and we needed room for a cot. The yellow room was next door a...

The hosts, Patrice and Marc, are what make Riad Dar Tiflet such an amazing place to stay. Upon arrival we were met by Patrice and taken to the riad and once settled he took us on a tour of the Medina and provided the most detailed directions of how to make our way around the area without getting lost-fantastic! The riad is conveniently located very close to the main square, jama el fina. The rooms we stayed in were nicely decorated and clean and breakfast on the roof terrace was just lovely. Marc and Patrice recommended all the best sights and restaurants and even helped us organise our day trip to Ourika falls. Thank you gentlemen for making our Christmas in Marrakech so special!

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!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Riad Dar Tiflet is a smart authentic Riad in the heart of the old medina. We chose to let the house as it was decorated by the former berberian families, with a lot of old ceramics on the walls (zelliges) and furniture hand-made in 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
