This riad is a brand new renovation and thus lacks some of the charm of the older properties. It's very clean and tidy though. I'm guessing that I had the same room as "Thambisub4" as I too have bruised shoulders from the bathroom door frame! Breakfast is pretty basic but they are very flexible about the timing. Chakib asks for payment up front which I thought was a bit unusual - it could be that he has had problems with guests who could not handle the mosque. The mosque is right next door and there are two amplified calls to prayer before 5am. You couldn't sleep through these unless you were dead drunk. The call to prayer then wakes up a small bird in the courtyard which makes an unbelievably loud and piercing call for the next two hours. If anything the bird was worse than the mosque. Chakib recommended Le Tanjia restaurant to us which we really hated (see my review). There is wireless internet in the riad but my iPod could not connect to it, apparently PCs work OK though.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dar Tasnime is a charming Riad located within the old city of Marrakech, in the easily accessible quarter of R'mila-Jbel Lakhdar. A superb location and safe neighborhood in the vicinity of the main square Jamâa-el-Fna, shopping areas and other local attractions. Our property has been in the family since 1962 and was recently renovated and decorated with love, passion, and according to local traditions. It took two years for several teams of talented artisans to restore this traditional house using local materials and techniques that have been used for centuries. The refined tints of this authentic moroccan house are in perfect harmony with its arab architecture making it appropriate for a serene and convivial stay. The Riad offers five rooms in the first floor: two single confort, two twin or double and one triple room around a courtyard with a refreshing fountain. All rooms are equipped with reversible air conditioning and private bathrooms. The dining room and living room are in the ground floor. The roof terrace with exotic plants presents a great view on the old city and Atlas Mountains and is the privileged place for breakfast and relaxation. ... more less
