We booked a four night break at Dar Tah Tah because it seemed nice and central, and wasn’t too expensive (we paid £308 for four people for four nights bed & breakfast). The house is hidden down a narrow street off Rue Rahba Kedima, which leads into the old spice market. The position is great, being close to the main square of Jemaa El Fna and only yards from the souks, yet still beautifully quiet, which you need after braving the souks!
Through the large wooden door, you enter a passageway through to the glass roofed courtyard, where there’s a table & chairs for breakfast. Also on the ground floor is a twin bedded room with a small shower room, the kitchen and sitting room/salon with fireplace, tv, board games, books and a few videos. We were welcomed to use the fridge & coffee making facilities.
Our rooms were on the first floor, rooms 1 & 2, which comprised the “family suite”. Room 2 opened off the central terrace, had 2 fairly narrow single beds & a tiny shower room/toilet. There was a wardrobe but unfortunately, the fact that there were two beds there meant it was impossible to open! Luckily, that wasn’t a hardship for my two (adult) children – they were happy to live out of suitcases.
Room 1 was up a short flight of stairs, and had two single beds pushed together, and a roomier shower room with toilet & bidet. There was another single bed so the room could easily have slept three, as it was enormous, with very high ceilings. The window was quite high up, so you couldn’t actually see out. The room was also air conditioned & had a radiator for colder months, plus extra bedding in the wardrobe.
Up the stairs from the first floor was a little roof terrace, with a table & chairs, a divan with cushions & a parasol, & two sunbeds. There was another room up on the terrace, which would be a lovely place to stay (as long as you don’t mind stairs!).
You get your own key to the front door, as the staff don’t stay overnight, but are always contactable by phone.
Breakfast is adequate, continental style (French bread/croissants/jam/butter etc)
The whole dar was nicely decorated in Moorish style and had a homely feel to it – it would be great to hire the whole house for a family or group of friends.
We were looked after by Ibrahim, who couldn’t have been more helpful & also spoke very good English. He arranged our transfers to & from the airport, and also a day trek to the mountains, which turned out to be the highlight of our visit.
Dar Tah Tah was very good value for the price, and I would definitely stay there again.
