Riad Dar Tinmel
Ranked #819 of 1,167 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 October 2011

We stayed in Riad dar Tinmel for 4 nights in April-11. We had 9 people in our group so we rented the entire Riad which worked our very nicely. This was a big plus because it felt like it was our vacation home with a staff to support us. Riad Magellan manager/staff was in charge of running Riad dar Tinmel when we stayed there. This worked out fine for our stay.

Pros
Breakfasts were good, extensive, served on roof terrace
Very good location for souks and main square
Rooms adequate with nice decor
bathrooms were fine with decent hot water and water pressure
clean
Staff was very helpful and accommodating
very good value for the $
Cons
at end of a very dark street
roof terrace was a bit basic. comfortable but worn out

Overall good to very good Riad, good location, excellent value for money. I would recommend Riad dar Tinmel

Room Tip: book entire riad if you have a group, rental rate is negotiable

We went there 4 nights and overall we were satisfied. It' s very nice little riad, well decorated, with very helpful and kind staff but a bit basic and missing a bit on the details:

Plus
- Excellent location (have to walk a bit to access when coming in or out of the airport but luggage are being taken care of so just a stroll in the medina really)
- Very nicely decorated and well maintained;
- Very very nice staff, always kind and willing to help (but only 2 people);
- Good and rich breakfast;
- Kind of hidden in a little dark street, makes you feel like you know the medina inside out when you go in :P
- Clean sheets and towels;
- Not expensive, good value for money;

Minus
- A bit basic rooms: no door or curtains to separate the main room from the bathroom, some light bulbs dead, water pressure was ok in the shower but you quickly run out of hot water;
- Bed a bid hard;
- Staff is nice but not very proactive, we kind of felt a bit left alone when we arrived;
- Pool is big word more like a giant bathub, still must be nice in summer to freshen up. Wasn't hot enough for us to use it.
- Rooftop is not very well maintained and offers no view;

Would have been a small 4 points if it wouldn't be for a last detail which tips the balance into the 3 points category: no landline so really a pain when you must book anything outside, maybe the roaming fees are acceptable when you come from europe but for asian or american mobiles you'd appreciate having a landline (even if a paying one).

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the Riad Dar Tinmel. The riad is a small, but peaceful and charming place, well situated for the souks and main square. Service is friendly and the ambience very relaxing. A great little place that we would have no hesitation in returning to.
