“Excellent value, great location and very help staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Dar Tamlil situated literally 2 minutes walk from the bustling Djeema El Fna in the heart of Marrakech medina. Souks and main attractions all within walking distance. Lovely B&B nicely decorated rooms, clean with en-suit and hot water. Staff couldn't be more friendly and helpfully and available 24hr a day offered advice on local customs and where to eat. Breakfast serviced from 8am-11am but on the odd occasion that I was later than 11am staff happy to serve breakfast whenever. I would definitely recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

We booked based on price and ratings. The riad is very hard to find, but so are most things once inside the medina. Once there, what surprised us was that the bathroom does not have a door, but a curtain. Also, we traveled in December and it was cold and the heater worked but did not heat up the room. But the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is very good. Also the location is good because it is steps away from the square.

This Riad is in a quiet residential area while being a minute's walk away from Jemma el Fna. The rooms are decorated in a creative manner, the roof terrace is a great place to relax. There is only one staff on site at a time which was a problem in the evening as he always seemed to "step out". The phone rang non-stop for an hour while one of his absences. He later appologised to us when he saw I took the battery out of the phone, saying it was his boss trying to reach him and there was a problem with the line......ya, right.
This Riad serves breakfast only. Overall, we were happy for what we paid.

This riad is more like staying at someones home than a hotel, in a good way! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and abdo especially very chatty and can give all sorts of advice on how much to pay for things, where to go and how to get there. Its a lovely place to chill out, and its location 2 mins from the square means you can pop back at different times in the day to drop off shopping or just when it all gets a bit overwhelming or hot. The rooms are fairly basic but have a traditional feel, and the roof terrace is a great place for breakfast or to kick back with a book and plan your day. Overall the value of this riad is brilliant, as other places we found in the same price range were nowhere near the square and didnt look as nice. I would highly recommend this riad for those who value location and vibe more than the luxurious trappings of a larger hotel, although we didnt exactly feel as if we were roughing it as they provide towels, hairdryer etc during your stay. Would also recommend the toubkal restaurant (on your right as you leave the alley from the riad onto the main sq), especially for the chicken tagine with lemon and olives... delicious!!

nice and quiet place where you feel at home, welcomed and where you can have peaceful moments which are really needed after wondering around in the medina.

This riad is situated in a narrow alley in the middle of the medina. The house is nicely restored. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Some are air-conditioned. There is a roof terrece with table and lounge-chairs. Unfortunately the staff during the day was not very friendly and disinterested. The men who guarded the house at night were much more friendly. All in all this gave our stay a very unpersonal touch.

We spent 7 nights in this fantastic riad. Arrived at late, we did ask a man on the street to guide as to the door, gave some tip everything was fine.
Location couldnt be better as the main square was only some minutes walk.
In the medina nothing was really far, even we could get the main bus station ( gare routiére) within 25 minutes walk.
The room was clean and comfortable, Abdul who works there very friendly and helpful, ( the lady , too, sorry i dont remember her name) breakfast delicious and more than enough, mint tea great as well.
Roof terace excellent for relax and take a sunbath.
We would definitely recommended this riad and will find our next stay in Marrakech.
