The hostel is in a location 3 minutes from the square but on a street that wasn't my favorite. The hostel is like a little oasis inside and I had the best Chicken Tajine here out of every restaurant I ate at in Morocco.


My friend and I are just back from 4 nights in Riad Dar Tamlil and I can say that it was one of the best Hostelworld finds yet. Abdul is a fantastic host who went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy in Marrakech (even getting out of his bed extra early one day to go and buy us breakfast and exchange money for us so we didn't have to ourselves.) The room was a perfect size and the Riad has a beautiful terrace which looks on to Moroccan rooftops and sunsets. Thanks Abdul!!


We stayed on the lower level, in a 3-person room with private ensuite bathroom. Other than a bit of musty dampness in the room that was cleared with a fan and opening the door for a bit, all worked well to meet our needs. This Riad has free wifi that worked consistently well and there’s also a wonderful rooftop area for relaxing. We were greeted with Moroccan tea and sweets along with a big smile… the wonderful complementary breakfasts and the location … only minutes away from Jemaa El Fna.


EGreat location in the bazaar and close to Jebel el fna. Staff very helpful - got our bus tickets for the next day for us!


It was a great experience our stay in Riad Dar Tamlil. Even if the medinas in morocco can be a bit difficult to manage at the beginning, the riad is very well located close to place Jemaa Fna (is easy to arrive from the airport even by bus(around 30 dirhams), what is significantly cheap compared with the taxis). Awesome breakfast served everymorning that is even better thanks to the terrace they have, the good-smily service and the morocccoan sun. Special mention to Abdoul, a great person!

The Riad was a peaceful oasis yet close to everything. It is a beautiful authentic building. Staff were welcoming, informative and hospitable.The sunny roof terrace is great for a relaxed breakfast and the courtyard cool in the heat of the day.


Lovely quiet place in the middle of the Medina! When booking ask for a room upstairs, as you might catch a beam of sun in the morning. Nice breakfast (pastry, bread, crêpes salées, marmalade, butter, soft cheese, freshly squeezed orange juice, tea/coffee), served in the patio/balcony or in your room. Very friendly welcome by Abdul. Wifi ok. Heater in the room. Shower working well. Hand in the key if you want your room made. All in all a very pleasant stay!


We recommend this riad . It is well positioned for the square and market place of Marrakesh. Abdul, Helen and staff were very welcoming, and happy to help with all our queries. Breakfast was delicious and the rooftop terrace an ideal place to eat it and enjoy the morning sun. No complaints whatsoever. on any aspect. We had a brilliant time in Marrakesh and this Riad was the ideal place to relax after experiencing the hustle and bustle of the manic, daily life in the Jemaa el Fna square,


Lovely friendly staff who were very keen to please. Generous breakfast. Very clean and comfortable room. Relaxing courtyard and terrace. Thanks!


We took an electric kettle to make hot drinks in the room. Most of the other guests were from England also and everyone spoke good English. The staff are able to advise on what prices to pay for common items offered for sale in the souks. It is worth using the riad's service to send a taxi to the airport to meet you and take you to the riad for 200 dirhams because it saves all the stress on arrival. Change the money after going through customs and not in the booths before offering poor rates.


The riad was absolutely lovely, very, very quiet except for the beautiful birdsong in the morning considering how close it is to the main square. The staff could not be kinder and more helpful and gentle. A superb breakfast every morning on the roof terrace watching eagles circling, storks flying by, and the sounds of Berber music gently piping across from the square. We would stay there again and again - cannot recommend it enough!

Based on twin room. The shower head is badly positioned so you have to grip it yourself when you shower. Room always left unlocked by cleaner, who don't change the sheets. The front door to the Riad is locked morning and night, and no guests have a key. This means that frequently you have to wait as the caretaker inside realises there's someone waiting, or (in one case) wait over 15 minutes until they comes back from the shops. This is also a severe fire hazard. Twin mattresses very dented.


We would definitely recommend this riad. The staff is very kind, warm and helpful. The location was absolutely perfect. It is located in walking distance to most of the main attractions, and only 3 minutes from the Jemaa el Fna square, and even though there can be a lot of noise at this place, there is so quiet at the riad. Compared to other riads in Morroco we enjoyed the breakfast, and most of all they have a very lovely and sunny roof top terrace!
