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!

The riad was lovely and the breakfast excellent. We ate on the roof-terrace which was very nice. The staff was very kind and helpful( example: The last day we were leaving early, before breakfast hours and they brought us a pastry and fresh orange juice anyways). The location is great, right next to jmaal el fna which is the centre of the medina.

Great riad, very close to the main square. Staff were very accommodating, the room was comfortable and had air-con, and the breakfast was lovely.

We had an absolutely brilliant stay here. The room was fantastic, with good air-conditioning and lovely features. The roof terrace was a great place to unwind and the staff could not have been more helpful. We were really grateful for all the advice they gave us on navigating and bartering in the Souks, as well as preparing lovely breakfasts, organising taxis and generally going the extra mile. Many thanks to Abdul and Riad Dar Tamlil, a truly fantastic holiday.

A small traditional Moroccan house at a very convenient location - just a few min walk from The Place - with very helpful staff, in particular, Abdul, who knows almost everything useful to a first timer in this amazing North African country.

lovely place in the middle of the medina, minutes away from the jemna el fnaa.. not easy to find, but the directions on the webpage is helpfull... rooms are a bit dark, but the patio and the spacious terrasse make it up!! yummy breakfast in the chilled patio.. staff is super helpfull and very obliging, we even could leave our big backpack in the riad for a couple days, while we were off to the desert..

Staff not expecting us, not very friendly or helpful, but quite awkward. We had to make our own bed. We paid the expected outstanding amount on arrival but the next morning were told by another maybe of staff that they had miscalculated and we needed to pay more. Not awful, but not great either. We stayed in better places for half the price!

First of all we are sorry for what has disturbed your night in our riad and apologize. The day of your stay, the manager was sick. Temporary worker was hired to replace him. It has unfortunately not been at the level of service we want to offer our customers. For billing he converted by mistake the balance due for your stay (36 euros) in local currency by multiplying by 10 instead of 11 which is the normal rate of exchange. Reason for the difference you requested when employee found the error.

Great place to stay. Very clean and nice with nice top trace where you have breakfast and relax. The location is very central, very close to the main square and close to taxis and many place where you can get good Moroccan food. Staff is friendly and helpful in organizing tours and excursions.

Our stay in Dar Tamlil was enjoyable. The staff was too friendly and their mint tea was the best one in Morocco. The rooms and atmosphere of the hostel was great and reflects Morocco with its best details. The only problem we experienced was hot water but all other points in Dar Tamlil was wonderful. Thank you.

We enjoyed our stay at Riad Tamlil. The location was nice, right in the center of all the hustle and bustle of the medina but inside it was a quiet retreat. Also, we enjoyed having our breakfast on the roof-top teraze. Our room was a little rustic, no white fluffy duvet and the shower was open to the rest of the bathroom which was fine just rustic. The staff was nice too.

A very nice riad! After a chaotic walk through the city, the perfect place to rest and feel like home. A lovely garden and a nice roof terasse. Location is great, just 2 minutes and you are at djemma el Fna.
