“Serene and beautiful haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2007

This lovely Riad is a serene haven a million miles away from the bustling souks (though actually only a couple of minutes walk!). We had our own tiled courtyard, bathroom and rooftop terrace as well as a shared balcony area. The Riad has been beautifully restored and has an air of total tranquility and luxury.
The Staff were all pleasant and friendly. We were greeted with mint tea and Moroccan biscuits and, for the two nights we were there, absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We had a delicious meal at the Riad on the first night and, for our last night, they recommended a fantastic restaurant.
I would definately want to stay here again - just need an excuse to return to Marrakech!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2007

After a disastrous week in Barcelona staying in an apartment that smelt like sewerage, we were apprehensive, particularly because Tamkast is so reasonably priced. We arrived at midnight and it was like something from a dream, a beautiful, spacious place with a courtyard, private balcony and roof. As there were 5 of us we had the whole first floor to ourselves. While the staff are very discreet they are extremely helpful. Tamkast is in the middle of the medina and next to the souk. Getting cabs to anywhere else is a bit difficult, even the small taxis have trouble in the tiny streets.

Highly recommended especially for families

Tamkast is a beautiful little riad in the northern end of the Medina. The owner is lovely and greeted us with mint tea and pastries our own private courtyard while talking us through a map of Marrakech and explaining how to find the place (which is a little tricky). He was also happy to arrange bus tickets for us and give recommendations for restaurants and nights out.

The riad is exactly as beautiful as the website suggests. It also serves food and alcohol (relatively cheaply) and the lovely staff are only too happy to take your breakfast tray up to the roof terrace. The only downside is that it does not have air conditioning which would be useful in the summer. Best of all it was only 55 euros a night which was a real bargain - it was the cheapest of the three riads we stayed in and also the nicest!
