Riad Ravel
Ranked #852 of 1,170 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 January 2010

The Dar Jirane in Marrakech is a riad that I and my girlfriend enjoyed very much. We stayed there for six nights over the new year 2009/2010. The riad is situated quietly only six walking minutes from the Jeema El-Fna Square. We enjoyed the tranqulity of allmost having the riad to ourselves. There are only three rooms in the entire riad, so we didn't meet other guest more than once a day. We ate a dinner at the riad with a wonderful salad of tomatos, cucumber and a spicy sauce followed by tangine and couscous. The main courses were nice, and definitely among the better we had in Morocco.
The doublebed in our room was ca. 195 cm long (but very squakey). Most of Marrakech is non- alkoholic, but the riad served a drinkable red wine.

Reviewed 8 November 2008

We arrived in the rain after a long day's travel from London. This is certainly an original riad and it has been well restored with very finely detailed tiling around the walls in the courtyard.

Rooms are a little threadbare and the beds strangely short to accommodate them in the long but narrow bedrooms. If you are over 5 ft 8" you will struggle to get a decent night's sleep.

Their website mentions a televison and alarm clock in each room, neither of which were present in our room.

The breakfast is sufficient but repetitive of panckes in different forms. We stayed 3 nights and by day three were sick of the sight of them.

We tried an evening meal which we ordered early that morning of couscous and tangia. One well known travel brochure stated that this riad served the best food of any inside the medina. Our experience was somewhat different - the soup was fine, but the tangia was just beef with olives and was much tougher than the beef hidden under the couscous and vegetables. The tangia is supposed to be cooked very slowly, tenderising the meat.Ours clearly was not. My dessert was an orange, sliced with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Not worthy of the 180DH per person.

Overall, this place is just acceptable. One plus is the roof garden, which is a true sanctuary away from the fumes and annoyances of the souks below, although it is in need of some repair, with missing lights and seat cushions.

If we were unfortunate to have to visit Morocco again, we would not stay here again.
