Fantastic riad! Very friendly service-oriented owner. Great room, delicious breakfast, on request an authentic Moroccan meal is prepared. Hammam present, perfect location within the medina, absolute must!
No hot water!!! Last night or this morning. We had to leave at 8am to catch our flight. When we asked about the hot water, the manager told us it was our fault for not telling her late last night (as I was about to get into bed). We told her first thing in the morning after we tried again but she preceded to say it was our fault and could not do anything to solve our problem. This was not a cheap room and we expected hot water as a fundamental. The room also really smelled like drains, and the mattress was like a banana which we overlooked at the time. When we complained about the hot water and asked for some remuneration before leaving the manager suddenly became very unfair, shooing us out and slammed the door. The airport transfer organised by the riad and we had prepaid was very uncomfortable. The driver didn’t even say as much as hello. He stormed off to his car with us chasing behind. Halfway through the journey we came to an abrupt stop on a back street. Our bags were literally thrown into another car and us ushered in behind. It was frankly scary as we didn’t know what was happening but fortunately we did arrive at the airport! A takeaway breakfast today (offered by the riad instead of the normal sit down) was also sadly not up to standard - a dry pastry and a couple of old oranges each. Finally to mention the Booking.com price was subject to not only the additional tourist tax but a 5% “bank charge”. On the whole I am leaving Marrakech disgruntled, cold, unclean and taken advantage of. The building was however lovely and the room large. We found it reasonably easily although they didn’t pick up the phone when our taxi tried to phone on arrival to Marrakech. Breakfast at the riad was fine.
After 2014, we spent again 2 nights at the Dar Tuscia 2018 Jan. Our second stay at this dar was again our best during our trip in Morocco. We got a nice big triple room on the first floor. The decoration is aesthetic, the beds were comfortable. There is an air condition at the room, it worked well and fast - it was advantageous in December. There is a quiet atrium and a nice roof terrace. The breakfast is ok (bread, jam, butter, crepes, tea, coffee ) this is the only point, which could be better. Naima (head of housekeeping) is always helpful, she answered all of our questions (where to eat, where to buy ssg.) The location of the dar was for us convenient, close to the bus/grand taxi station, to the Aswak Assalam (big market), and we've foud a good fast food restaurant not too far (Pepper Grill on the Boulevard Moulay Abdellah).
This riad is located close to Bab Yacout, where you can easily find parking and a long-range taxi station. Clean nice rooms, good breakfast and they can arrange a really good homemade dinner for you (we asked for a vegetarian couscous). Not as cheap as eating outside, but the quietness and the cozyness made a perfect evening! Ps: the lady running this riad is the sweetest person on earth!
The service was great, the room comfortable. The location is a little challenging, not close to a main artery leading into the heart of the medina. Our hostess gave us good direction but once we got lost it was impossible to find our way back. A taxi took us to another location where we had to pay a "helper" to get us back. We did enjoy a hot shower and good meal.
The room itself was OK. However, there was a really bad smell from the bathroom, like someone died in there. The location is absolutely terrible, a 25 minute walk in the maze of the medina, while getting harassed the whole way. There are better places to stay that are closer to the square, where all the tourist sites are. For dinner, i Got charged 12 Euros for a chicken tagine, which usually costs 4 Euros at tourist locations that have jacked up prices, I was surprised at the cost but was told that it wasn't "expensive", thanks a lot. I'm pretty sure I can compare costs. The staff were extremely nice however, and tried the best to help me with whatever I needed.
We only spent one night in this riad, as we were coming back from a long Sahara tour and had one night to spend in Marrakesh before our flight. The riad is located in the north of the medina, and a bit difficult to find. We stayed in Marrakesh before, in another place, where we were told that we should avoid this part of the city at night. (We booked before knowing this.) Unfortunately this advice seemed reasonable, as we had a bad experience with a drunk guy who was trying to "help" us finding the riad and got kind of aggressive when we got there (with our map) and refused to pay for his "assistance". The place itself is quite nice, the decoration is beautiful and the rooms/common areas are clean. The owner is friendly and helpful too. The only thing is that the walls are paper thin, and we could hear all our neighbors at night, coming back from going out or even just sneezing/showering. Overall, it's a nice place if you do not feel intimidated by sometimes quite pushy sellers/"guides" in the souks and if you are a deep sleeper. :)
We ended up here by accident, because the Dar we chose was overbooked and they took us to this one. We were quite happy with the mistake, because this place was very clean, bright, elegant and comfortable. The room was bigger than any other we had in a Riad or a Dar, and was beautifully decorated. The bathroom also had a lot of space and the shower was perfect (not that usual in Morocco!). Good location, easy to find and close to a gate. The staff was great and in general we had a great stay. Very good value for money!
We arrived in the dark and were making our way to the riad with the help of Google maps. A youth offered to show us the way we were prepared to give a small tip of 5 or 10 dirham for the few minutes of assistance but quickly the youths friends appeared and were very intimidating and verbally abusive demanding 150 dirhams (approx £12) We did not give in to their demands but I could imagine many people feeling intimidated and very frightened by the experience. The riad is very clean and tastefully furnished and our room had a very welcome hot shower. The temperature of the room was perfect and it was one of the few places during our trip to Morocco that I did not need to resort to adding more blankets to the bed. The daytime walk from the riad was a more enjoyable experience and it was a pleasure to explore and get lost in the maze of alleys.
The place is just adorable. Breakfast is also nice. The rooms are clean and hot water is always present (which is not always the case in morocco). who works there, the lovely Naima and Fouzia, would spoil you and make your life easy. Highly raccomended to ask them to pick you up at the airport or everywhere else for the first time, cause the place is pretty hidden if you don't know the medina. And the taxi prices, if you book with the ryad, is half of what you would spend without them. Dinner there is very good as well.
