“A nice Riad with a good location, but avoid the tour company at all costs!!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

The road is very centrally located just off the main square and is very easy to find. It is very small and cozy and the rooms were nice and clean. We had some issues with our room as the air conditioner was broken (Marrakech in July = very hot!!) and we were forced to move rooms. They fixed it after about 2 days and we moved back to the other room. However, it was very obvious that they knew that it was broken before we got there and that they were hoping that we wouldn't care. The other negative thing was that there was no staff at the Riad during the day (except for the cleaning lady) so if we had any questions/concerns we had to deal with it in the evening.

The only real issue was not the with the Riad, but with the tour operator that they work with. Do not under any circumstances go on a trip with them. We were promised a tour to Essaouira and all we got was a minibus with an angry driver that dropped us off and drove us back. A very expensive mini bus ride that would have cost nothing if we had just gone by ourselves. We also had to sit and wait while the driver took 1 hour long breaks to drink coffee with his friends. They do not provide tours and are obviously just out to trick tourists.

We had a great homestay at the Riad Dar Tamlil. The rooms are clean and the whole place is made with a lot of love to the details. People there are very friendly and helpful. Whenever we would like to visit Marrakech again, we would only stay at this cute hotel. Thank you so much for everything! It was great! Kindly regards, kim, conny & rita

Abdul was the member of staff who was working during our stay and he was really great. He helped us with anything we needed and explained various Moroccan traditions to us in a really calming way. The room was gorgeous and the roof terrace was beautiful. We'd definitely stay here again! Also, it is actually really near the main square so easy to find once you get your bearings - no need to be guided to it by passers by who want a tip!

Riad dar tamlil is perfectly located to explore both sides of Marrakesh, the old and new city. Located about 200 meters from the main square, this accommodation was easy to find on our own. The decor was classic Moroccan, with a beautiful courtyard, roof terrace and rooms. Breakfast included in the price and served where ever you like was a nice touch, coffee, orange juice, croissants, bread and jam. One word of advise, if you would rather not be woken by the finches at sunrise bring a set of ear plugs, these birds were beautiful to watch while having breakfast but not at 7am

This Riad is an oasis of calm within in the busy Marrakesh. It is so peaceful so you will definitely have a good nights rest.
The host while we were there was Abdul who was so helpful and so kind. He brought us the most delicious breakfast every morning and was very helpful with information.
The room was nice and it is such good value for the location. A great stay!

I had a great Stay in Riad Tamlil, the best thing about this Place is Abdul Latif, one of the staff members, he was very helpful and friendly, he helped me a lot because my plan for Marrakech was a bit messed up, he helped me stay several extra nights, and he was actually trying to help me save money and plan my time there quiet nicely, he was really very helpful and he knows a lot about the city.
The place is Great, near Jamee el Fna, the rooms are Clean, and the place looks good and well restored, i also changed rooms with help from Abdel Latif to be able to stay longer, and all the rooms i stayed in were Great, the only problem i had was with the hot water, and it was quickly solved whenever it happened.
I think the prices are very reasonable also if you are traveling alone, and they work with an agency that plans great Excursions, i went to a private "4 persons" day hike to the Atlas mountains, bit costy, but really worth the money.
You can find somewhere more Fancy in Marrakech i know, but i really recommend this Riad
