“Super close to the amazing Jema El Fna market!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

This Riad was slightly tricky for us to find at first because it didn't have a lot of signs. We had a lot of luggage and this Riad is deep inside old town where no cars are allowed. But everything after that was awesome! This Riad is in a little alley with cute street kittens, and super close to the big Jema el fna and other markets and souks. So we can come in and out of our place throughout the day. The included breakfast is epic with crepes croissants etc. The rooms are grand with tall ceilings, really beautiful. We can imagine the family that used to live here before it got converted to a hotel.

I stayed a total of 4 nights in Riad Dar Tamlil and overall we had a positive experience. Abdul, one of the staff guys, welcomed me and my girlfriend with a smile and gave us some useful tips and a bot of history about the city. It's not the best Riad in Marrakech, but they have fair prices for the location and service they provide. Might not be easy to find at first (as all Riads in Marrakesh) but once you know where it is, you won't have a problem. Just a couple of minutes out of the main city square. Since it's a small Riad (about 4 rooms if I'm not mistaken) you have a more personalized service, which is good. If you want a budget quality place, I would recomend this place.

Room Tip: The downstairs room doesn't have much natural light. Upstairs room are better, but also more exp...

Great value for money. Friendly and very helpful staff. Good breakfast. Location within minutes from central square. We had the superior room, which was decorated nicely and was very clean.Nights were quiet except for the mosques of course.

This Riad is only a 2 minute walk to the centre of the big square (Djemaa el-Fna). You couldnt wish for a better location. The Riad is to a perfectly clean standard with spacious rooms and beautifully decorated with a moroccan theme. My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights in this riad and had done very little research about morocco before we left, the owner - Abdul (the person who made our trip as amazing as it was) informs us about everything that we needed to know, ranging from how much we should pay for certains things in the market as people will try to rip you off, how to get to other places in morocco, even including what herbs to buy when my boyfriend fell ill. I will strongely recommend anyone this Riad down to the hospitality this man showed us throughout our stay. We also left our bags with him whilst we went on a 3 day trip to Essouria - which he helped us organise, bus times, where the bus station was, how much we should pay for taxis are and where the best place to stay in Essouria would be. (Bags when we returned were perfectly safe.)
The riad also has a beautiful roof terrace which is very peaceful, making you forget you are only seconds away from the crazy and packed square.

Had a really great say at this riad. My boyfriend and I stayed for 7 nights (although 3 of them we were away on a trip - extremely safe to leave all possessions in room for these 3 days). Found the owners very friendly and helpful when asking questions. Location couldn't have been better (although slightly tricky to initially find!). Breakfast each morning was fresh bread, pastries and orange juice - eating up on the roof terrace was a great way to start each day! There is a riad directly opposite that offers fantastic massages!! Overall, this Riad added to what was a brilliant trip to Marrakesh - would definitely stay again and recommend!

This Riad (B&B) is tucked away only minutes from the wonderfully hectic, but fascinating Medina or town center. A dirt alleyway leads to an iron door which opens to the most adorable mosaic courtyard with orange trees, individually decorated rooms, and a very welcoming staff. Breakfast was delicious and filling, rooms were clean, showers were hot, and any possible questions we could have had were answered by the amazingly kind staff.
Such a great value and so close to everything you want to see in Marrakech. This is not your luxury European hotel located right next to the airport and isolated from the true Marrakech. This is the Marrakech experience that you don't want to miss out on!

This Riad is nestled in the Medina, less than a minute walking from the open space of Djama al Fna... Incrdibly comfortable place to stay, very traditional and has a lovely terrace. Abde is the care taker of this Riad and is one of the most humble, helpful and incredible people you will ever meet.

Riad Dar Tamlil was reccomended to me by somebody else, and I would recommend it to everyone. It incredible and peaceful. It works out very cheap, particularly if you 3 people travelling, because an extra bed works out much more reasonable.

(Disclaimer)However the bathrooms have no doors, instead there are thick curtains. But its an experience. :D
