Riad Dar Tiflet -- the place to stay in Marrakesh!
My husband arranged the trip to Marrakesh and when he said we will be staying in Riad, I didn't know what to expect.
Riad Dar Tiflet, is on a great location, its 5 minutes walk to the main square, Jemaa el Fna, 5 minutes, if you can manage the traffic of Marrakesh, pedestrian, bicycle, scooters and the occasional horse carriage :) and still very quite and secure. The rooms are clean and comfortable, some bigger than others but all very liveable. There is a great balcony where breakfast is served every morning. There are two residence cats that are there to amuse you while you admire the view over the city, we were lucky as the female just had kittens.
Mark and Patrice are top guys! They are very customer focus, we had a smooth booking over email and they offered to book a cab to collect us from the airport, at arrival at the riad we were welcome with a soft drink and snacks, before being shown to our room. After a bit of time to relax Mark took us around and showed us Marrakesh and the souk, he spent a good part of the afternoon acting as our personal guide explaining what we were seeing and also gave us a background on the country and believes.
They told about what was worth to see and what not, give us recommendation on where to eat and shopping. We stayed at the riad for 5 days before going to the sea town of Essaouira, (lovely place) Patrice and mark, bought the ticket for us and took us to the bus station, what can i say they went the extra mile constantly and on every occasion.
More than just hosts we felt we made friends and we are looking to go back to Dar Tiflet and see them both, we strongly recommended riad Dar Tiflet to everyone, great HOSTs, great accommodation, good rates.
- 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
