Riad Ta'achchaqa3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
No A/C but the way the building is built, not really needed, but there is an industrial size fan if needed. (Only downside, had this been available, this would be getting a 5 without doubt). Having booked this once I was actually in the country, I was not really sure what to expect. On first arrival it was difficult to find. Needing the support of the local tour guide (20dh). Its a maze. Upon arrival greeted with some freshly brewed Mint tea and two lovely ladies who spoke very little english. Once connected to the wifi, and accessing my translating app. Things got easy quickly. I received a map which i didn't really use. The square is walking distance. The breakfast was filling and tasty, comprising of eggs, variety of bread, pancakes, tea, orange juice and a selection of spread. The night manager can speak english, and is the person in charge. He was very helpful. Always offering to walk me out, give me directions, advice on travel fares, and on the last day, took me out to the taxi rank, and told the taxi driver how much i am paying (BONUS!)
We stayed in this Riad for 3 nights in March. Fortunately Mustafa met our taxi driver and walked us to the Riad otherwise we would have had no chance of finding it, it is amongst and labyrinth alleyways. Open arrival we were greeted with mint tea from the very polite staff, who couldn't speak a word of English. We had a ground floor bedroom, which was nice enough and kept very clean. Being on the ground floor did mean you get a stronger wifi connection, but you will be woken up by the Riad's parrot every morning at 6am which is extremely frustrating, and then followed by more noise from about 7 onwards with the preparation of breakfast. We ate dinner at the hotel for the first night and breakfast every day. Food was very basic. This Riad was also sold as having a swimming pool... don't fool for this, it has a hot tub sized bath on the terrace about 1m x 1m. Also, as with the rest of Morocco this place is lined with cats, so if you are allergic steer clear. All of them are very friendly though, especially Peter, the ginger one. All in all, good for a roof over your head with a pretty central location, but you wouldn't want to spend too much time here.
Stayed here for 3 nights, and we loved it! Fair price, excellent location just in the middle of Medina, beautiful decor, peaceful oasis with very friendly staff, who can`t really speak english though but we could still manage a Moroccon boardgame together. :)) It`s a real hidden gem in the busy Medina! Fantastic interior, excellent stylish rooms, faultless cleaness. Nice roof terrace for breakfast (not a great view though). The only issue is to find the place - forget GPS -, so let some local boys to escort you there (of course you have to pay a few euros). Highly recommended!
This gem is quite hidden in a labyrinth of alleys but once you get there you'll find a small beautiful oasis and friendly staff that will make you feel at home.The room was beautiful and clean.The place is a few minutes away from some of the best places to eat: 'Le Jardin' and 'Terrasse des epices' and as an alternative you can go to 'Nomad' and 'Le Foundouk'. It's also very easy to reach the main sqaure.
An authentic, tranquil Riad in the labyrinth of Marrakesh Medina area with just 5 guestrooms and a lot of character including the parrot ;-) Very nice terrace and breakfast. Service is kind and professional.
Generally a lovely riad with beautiful decor and good location. The most special thing is the really friendly staff who make you at home. Location is great 10m from main square, 5m from mesressa Ben yousseef, 5m from a main road with taxis. Plenty of places to eat near the square. RIAD - beautiful decor, a small riad so nice and quiet, we stayed in ifluki room which was perfect - much better than what it appears in photos. WiFi does not reach this room though, better to stay on ground floor if want good WiFi. The staff were the most special thing. We stayed in lots of roads in morocco on our visit most more expensive than this one but this one was the best by a mile. It was the staff. Very very friendly and welcoming without feeling awkward. Really made us feel like family not hotel guests.
Stayed here in December 2013, two times actually. A little bit difficult to find the way the first time, but we soon learned our way through the maze of the Medina. Interesting stay, it was our first time staying in a Riad, and we loved it! The staff and the owner was very friendly and helpful, very good service. The rooms were nice and the breakfast really good. Recommend this riad to anyone who are interested to stay in the medina.
We had a lovely few days in May this year. The owners and staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and charming.The roof terrace was tranquil and quiet and the most delightful place to have our evening meal.The food was delicious and varied. Would definitely recommend it .
You enter the riad through a small door which is covert in a small street of the medina. Despite of the medina is a big maze, the riad is easily to find again after you've been there. The first time you come there you can ask people in shops. Don't give any reaction to the people on the street who suggest to help you to find your hotel. They will ask for money as soon as you arrived the riad. The riad is less than a 10 min. walk to the big square Jemaa el Fna. Nice and good restaurants are within reach, for example Restaurant 'Le Jardin'. Because of the recommendation of the riad we had a couple of times there our dinner, which was great! The riad is owned by a French couple and the staff is really helpful, polite and kind. Even when we asked where we could find a building in de medina we wanted to visit, one of the staff was considerate to walk with us to show it. Throughout the day and night is there always someone present. The breakfast is between 8 and 10 am and is fresh, they serve Moroccan tea/coffee, fresh orange juice, crepes, baguettes, pide and toppings, fried eggs, some fruit or yoghurt dessert. The breakfast is served at the rooftop where you can enjoy the rising sun. The temperature is really pleasant. If you want any tea or coffee throughout the day you can ask the staff, they serve it for free. The rooms are cleaned every day and they give you every new towels. The riad it self is beautiful deocrated with traditional Moroccan accessories, worhty taken pictures of. In the evening they light up candles throughout the riad and burn incense to give you the 1001 night experience. Definately worth spending your stay in Marrakech here!
Driving from the airport to the city and then walking through the many to alleyways to the Riyadh, I thought I had made the wrong choice, but once I got my bearings I was very happy. The Riyadh is charming, the French speaking staff could not be more helpful and booked us on a trip to the mountains (loved it), all completely fuss free. The breakfast was lovely, served on the terrace, and we had cold beer in the evening before heading out to the medina and restaurants. The rooms are not locked but it is completely safe, we had a ginger tom cat guarding our room (in the sunshine). The staff, Mustapha, Martin and the girls were so friendly and kind. Martin spoke the better English and was on night duty We asked Mustapha to take us to the bureau de change upon arrival to help us get our bearings and we easily found our way back. The only downfall was the promise of the English speak "boss" who never appeared. I would go back again.
