Riad Dar Othmane

Reviewed 6 January 2014

This is a great place to stay in Marrakech. From booking to arrival, Hassan's communication was excellent and we strongly recommend that you organise transport to the riad through him as someone will be waiting for you with a sign at the arrivals gate. It was such a smooth sailing in an otherwise intense situation! The stay itself was top class. Tea and snacks on arrival, filling and tasty breakfasts every day, cleaned room every day, fresh towels every day and free advice and tips about Marrakech and Morocco whenever you wanted it from Hassan. Book it if you can as you will struggle to get a better deal Marrakech!

Perfect riad in the heart of Marrakesh medina. For quiet a modest price one gets an opportunity to feel like home being treated so kindly and so obliging. It is not easy to find it for the first time, so get in touch with the owner beforehand (by all means) to get a map with instruction. GPS fails & I bet one won’t find it unassisted. Fine place, delicious morning coffee (awakened me). Strongly recommend!

This riad is what you could call really good value for money but at the same time it has an special atmosphere and character. Both the room and the interior yard are very tastily decorated and the place is very quiet in general. Rooms have air con and are always very clean. Also you will get a new pair of clean towels every day :)

The location is good, about 15 minutes walking from Jamaa el Fna. It might be a bit difficult to find your way the first day or first two days but then it is very simple. The riad offers a pick up service from the airport which is very useful specially if you are arriving at night as we were.

The riad keeper, Hassan, is just lovely. He treated us very well during the week that we spend there, being always reachable and helpful but without overwhelming you. And he even made us a little farewell present! He is the soul of the place and the main reason that makes this riad a great place to stay in Marrakesh!

When we arrived, our host Hassan greeted us with mint tea, juice and tasty snacks. Hassan is an amazing host, and he would help us in any way possible. The breakfast he cooked for us is filling and one of the best we have had in all the places we have stayed.

The location is excellent, being close to Jamaa El Fna square, where all the action takes place, but the riad is also a place of tranquility in the middle of the chaos, not too big so it is peaceful to stay there.

Advice for future travellers is to definitely arrange for a taxi to take you to the place, as it is only 10€ and as it will be near impossible for you to find it yourself for the first time.

We spent four nights at Riad Dar Othmane in Marrakech, Hassan the guy that manages the hotel is such a nice and pleasant person, He keeps the riad so clean and spotless, every time we went out we came back to a very tidy and clean room. Hassan is also a good cook he makes all the pastrys by himself and serves a good breakfast. Every thing we needed or asked imformation about Hassan had the time & imformation for us , he had lots off patiance for all are questions we think of him as a real friend .
The riad It is a magical quite place in walking distance from the main attractions in the Medina.
We highly recommend the riad.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nice, we stayed in the blue room.

We chose this Riad because of the good reviews and the good price and it was the best choice! The place is in the middle of the Medina of Marrakech, but it's perfectly quiet. Hassan is a wonderful host, he makes you feel welcome, is very helpful and attentive, respectful and polite. At our last night he cooked a wonderful dinner for us and made us feel at home in a place that is very different than where we come from. A great experience, we can only recommend the Riad Dar Othmane. Best place in town :)!

We stayed in this accommodation for a five night period in January 2013, not the best time to be in this part of the world except one can expect to be one of the few tourists types wondering around. The Riad was clean and appeared to be well maintained and is in the center of the Madina...make sure you call ahead upon arrival so that Hassan can meet you where the taxi will drop you off and direct you...otherwise, I can almost guarantee you that you will get lost, even with a GPS locator. Better yet, have the Riad arrange transport for you from the rail station or the airport. This service even includes a luggage service where a man appears out of no where upon your arrival in the old city and takes your luggage in a hand cart directly to the Riad....don't forget to give him a bit of a tip to keep him happy. The confirmation email for this service from the Riad will recommend a recommended amount.

We recommend this friendly accommodation. Inquire about a meal prepared and served in the Riad...excellent food and a bargain.

Room Tip: Just ask Hassan, he will take care of you.
