5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

What a little gem in all the hustle and bustle. We were picked up at the airport and arrived safely at the Riad. Naima was a great host and couldnt do enough for us. She even showed us the way out of the area and was always there when needed. She is an asset to this little Riad and very accommodating, so friendly and helpful at all times. Will stay again if in area.

This was a lovely little Riad located near to the grand taxi stand. All communication with the Riad prior to our travel was dealt with promptly and efficiently. We were a group of 4 friends for a three night stay, and were met at the airport and transported easily and safely to the Riad.

We we warmly greeted on arrival by Naima who was absolutely delightful. She was very friendly, helpful and patient with us. Naima offered us some tea and she also made us some food as we were quite peckish.

We got good advice, information and suggestions from her on things to do and see and places to eat. Having never experienced a Hammam before, we tried it at the Riad after a trip to the mountains, Naima explained it all to us and it was well worth every euro! Fantastic.

This was lovely experience for us all and would recommend it to others without reservation. Not high end luxury but a real gem of a find, small, cosy and informal and would definitely use it again.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor are best.

I stayed here with two friends. The ladies running it , Asma and Naima, were delightful, full of good advice about shopping prices, where to go and how to get there. It was about 25 minutes walk from the central square and the souks, through interesting back lanes. The rooms were clean,with pristine bed linen.. We had a home cooked meal there, which was delicious, and I would definitely return there. Beautiful rooms full of character, and excellent value for money.

We spent two nights in February 2013 in Dar Tuscia and we really enjoyed the place and the staff. The large room was very clean and beautiful, the breakfast was excellent and the reception was very good and warmful as well. The location, within the medina, is not so easy to find but the place is quiet and not too far away from the main square (about 20 min. by foot). We strongly recommend this hotel and in case we would go back to Marrakech, we would stay at Dar Tuscia again!

First time in Maroc and Marrakech we choose Dar Tuscia for our stay and we found it a very lovely place. Staff are really helpful and nice - helped us to organize a trip to Ouarzazate. Everything was perfect and definitely will come back.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and especially loved the roof terrace which was a great place to sit and relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Staff are really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was enough to keep us going most of the day!

This rhiad is situated within the medina about a 20 minute walk (or short taxi ride) from Jemaa El Fna (main square) so plenty close enough to most tourist attractions.

Stayed here for approximately a week. Lovely place that is tucked away in a small alleyway, and despite this, it is not that difficult to find it. If you are cabbing from anywhere just tell the taxi driver to get to the Grand Taxi Stand outside the medina walls. You will have to tell him to drive all the way through the stand to the basketball court right at the end of the road. There will be an entrance into the medina and just keep bearing left (twice), and you will see a sign pointing you to Dar Tuscia in front of you. Follow the sign around the corner and it is the first door to your left. It is also easy to get to Jemaa El Fna from the hotel. Just head out to wall and follow it around till you get to Mohammed V Avenue.

Breakfast is simple, but this is a typical moroccan breakfast so don't expect too much from it. Rooms are cleaned everyday and the beds are comfortable. There is also a terrace where you can go to do a bit of star gazing at night.

We met the husband of one of the ladies running the hotel, Omar, while we were on our way to the square one day and he offered to bring us to a berber market where all the locals shop. He told us he bought spices for his family there and introduced the shop owner to us. We managed to buy lots of spices for much cheaper than what we could have gotten them in the souks for - and without bargaining for them too. The spices were also of much better quality, like saffron for example.

I'll definitely recommend this place because it's small and cosy and the ladies definitely made us feel very much at home.
