We ahd a fantastic time in Marrakech and one of the reasons for this was staying at Dar Tasnime! Chakib (the owner) was very helpful and gave us lots of advice on negotiating the amazing city of Marrakech. We have been home in Wales for 2 months and we still miss the fresh orange juice and homemade pancakes! This Riad is superb and we will go there again! Peter & Lois (Wales UK)

We could have not chosen a better spot than Dar Tasnime as our entry point for our trip across Morocco. It's very small so the owner will take personally care of each guest individually. Top notch roof terrace, a great value for the suite and perfect, very quiet location (don't miss going to the Bains de Marrakesh which is just around the corner).

I took my Mum and a friend to Marrakesh for a week' holiday in May, and Dar Tasnime was ideal in many ways.
It is close to many of the cultural attractions, and within walking distance of many more (even with some very slow walkers in-tow!!!).
Although there is re-development going on around the riad, (which was a bit noisy and dusty during the day), once inside all is tranquil and beautifully arranged. I looked in all the rooms and can confirm that they all live up to the web-site photos - they're beautiful, and each has its own individual character. I was lucky and had a balcony looking over the courtyard, but my Mum was equally pleased with her pretty and cosy room on the ground floor.

Although there is a pretty lounge adjoining the courtyard, the main public area is the terrace, where we ate generous breakfasts (included in the price), lounged in the sun, and enjoyed evening G+T's (duty-free's!) and an assortment of snacks from the nearby 'Nut vendor' and 'local store'! Chakib the owner was more than happy for us to help ourselves from the kitchen, (and we tried to tidy up after ourselves!).

I would say that the biggest gem of all at Dar Tasnime is indeed Chakib! He is the most warm and helpful hotel proprietor I have ever met, he speaks perfect English, (having spent 10 years in the US), and being a Marrakechi born-and-bred, he will give you all the info and tips you could possible wish for. He made us feel exceptionally welcome and safe in a city which can sometimes be challenging! He will give you restaurant recommendations (the new place nearby is beautiful, with great food and service plus very high quality musicians and an unobtrusive but beautiful Belly dancer(!!), and can arrange most anything you have in mind.

Riad Dar Tasnime is a fantastic place, the room was very beautiful with a lot of typical maroccan decoration. Everything is very clean and the location is excellent, close to the square, all the main attractions and to a gate (easy when you want to hire a car and don't want to drive the crazy streets of Marrakech?!)

The owner, Chakib, is very friendly and helpfull. He made us feel welcome from the beginning. He explained a lot about Marrakech and gave us a map and of course a good cup of mint tea! He helped us also with car hire and other excursions.

When we ever come back to Marrakech we will definitely come back to Chakib and his wonderfull Riad!

Thanks to previous Tripadvisor reviews we found this gem in the hearth of the Medina, very close to Saadian Tombs.
Chakib, the owner is a friendly, helpful man who welcomed us with a delicious hot mint tea in this small cosy Riad (5 rooms).
We booked one of the suites where we felt like in Bahia Palace !
Excellent breakfast on the terrace, perfect trip to this wonderful Marrakech, we well come back for sure. Thanks Chakib !

lovely little riad run by a very freindly guy, Chakib, who went out of his way to make sure we got the most out of our stay in Marrakech. Clean, comfortable and quiet in a good location 10 mins stroll from Jamaa al-Fna. Fantastic fresh orange juice with breakfast on the roof terrace while wathcing the storks flying. Don't be put off by the proximty of the mosque, we hardly heard a thing during our stay and had the best 4 nights sleep I can remember. Thoroughly reccomend it.

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
