jeffschool What an awesome way to start your stay in Marakech... when I arrived Yahya greeted me and fellow travellers with mint tea, and went on to perform some traditional Morrocan music complete with classical guitar and drums. Hes a fantastic story teller, as is his nomad tradition, so he explained the meaning of some songs very enthusiastically with lots of energy and humour. I enjoyed joining in and even had a go myself. The atmosphere is very social, welcoming and relaxed, and they help you to organise your travels or excursians if you want them but there is in no way any pressure like you get on the main square. Just ask! The sharred room can get quiet warm in summer, but if you dont mind the snake charmers and drummers noise in the distance (its actually quite nice to fall asleep to) I recommend you sleep on the roof where theres comfortable sofas to bed down on if youre not too picky. Dont forget about the call to prayer at 4am during Romadon like I did though. The location is about 1 minutes walk from the main square & loads of places to eat. They serve a good breakfast at T & F every day thats included in the price, and dont stop serving till 11am so you can have a lie in! Food isnt served otherwise, but if you speak wih them they often cook Tajin for all those interested in chipping in a few Dh. All in all Ive found T and F a perfect base for my solo travels and would recommend it to any true travellers out there who are looking for a more authentic experience that the bigger hotels cant offer. Its safe and friendly with no rush or pressure; absolutely lovely. Enjoy your travells! ;)

kim.zietlow great riad close to jem el-fna. just a short walk, let's say 5-7 min, through the lively souks away. owned by lovely french lady, hosted by nice moroccan guy called kudus. he is responsible for your stay, offers you tea, makes you breakfast, helps you out with any issue you may have. definitely worth the money! a quiet oasis in hectic marrakesh streets. just walk through the door and enjoy the silence and hospitality. I will certainly come back!!

clj.elliott I found Dar Choumissa randomly on the internet - and I'm extremely glad I did! I live on the SW coast of Morocco and travel to Marrakech at least three times a year so have tried out many riads in the city. This is one of the best - for the not very pricey fee. It's situated just behind the Tazi Hotel - so really near to the square (Jamaa El Fna) and doesn't require hours of hopelessly stumbling around Marrakech's maze of back streets. Amazingly - given it's proximity to the central hubbub it's also extremely quiet. And that goes for the riad staff as well. Usually where most 'quiet' riads fall down is with the staff preparing breakfast, moving furniture, washing floors, watching blaring TV etc at god-knows o'clock in the morning. This is the first place I've stayed in Morocco - ever - where the staff actually whisper! I stayed in a twin room with a friend but I had a nose at some other rooms - for future reference. They're very comfortable, all equipped with en-suite tadlakt bathrooms (with stacks of hot water), soap, towels etc and are decorated in typical but not tacky Moroccan style - with a dash of French 'je ne sais quoi'. Which goes for the entire riad which kind of reminds one of an old country house. The proprietor has wisely kept and restored all the original woodwork - and some of the decorative artwork on it is stunning. There are nice touches - like a fan in the room that actually works, insect repellent plugs - with the little block of insect repellent, oh, yes and wi-fi. The roof terrace is lovely - very simple but calming and quiet with recliners. There's also a Berber tent pitched up there where one eats breakfast. Breakfast comprises hacha (a bit like corn bread), or Moroccan crepes (like French but thicker) homemade bread, yogurt, bananas, fresh orange juice, coffee or mint tea - and fantastic homemade confitures. The apricot one is to die for - none of your usual mass-produced slop here. I persuaded Tariq - the concierge - to flog me a massive jar of date and orange confiture to bring back home with me. Tariq has a basic grasp of English - but that's not a problem for those who don't speak French. A bit of pointing and acting always works. He's very polite and not at all invasive - and can sort out trips and questions about where to find shops, museums etc, etc. In short then - if you're looking for a place to relax and crash after a long flight or a day of running the gauntlet of Jamaa El Fna then I'd definitely check this place out. For around 28 quid for a double or 38 for a twin - you can't really go wrong. I shall definitely be staying there on my next trip.

maymaloney Hostel Riad Marrakech Rouge is the best hostel that I have stayed in in over six years of independent travel. It is simply beautiful inside and the rooms, breakfast and atmosphere make it the ideal place to relax and chat to other guests. The owners and staff are extremely helpful and they have succeeded in creating an oasis in the middle of a fabulous, and occasionally frenetic, city. This hostel is wonderfully located, and easy to find (keep in mind that the name is not on the door - which adds volumes the the 'best kept secret' element of the hsotel). Aditionally the Berber tent on the roof and the numerous hang-out areas make this a great place to meet travellers, swap stories and find out where to go next. There is even a hamman in the upstairs shower if you fancy a scrub down sauna! Fran and Abdullah are most hospitable hosts and are both fonts of knowledge. You will be enchanted by this hostel.
carolinewi We had a great stay at Riad Basma. Very friendly owners, they want to make your stay as nice as possible. The location is very good, very close to the square, but very quiet. The rooms look nice, but the beds are a bit hard. A nice place to stay!

Rob and Z A fantastic stay in Riad Jakoura. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and made our stay all the more enjoyable. The manager, Hamid, told us as soon as we arrived "you're at home now, you can relax" and this was certainly true of this riad. Hamid and Rachid spent a lot of time chatting with us, pointing out attractions on the map they provided, making us complimentary mint tea and giving us tips on how to avoid the many tourist traps in Marrakech. They even brought out a shisha/hookah and flavoured tobacco for us to try! Sadly as we don't speak French we didn't get to know the lovely lady who prepares breakfast. We were also able to arrange a Sahara Desert tour through Hamid, and it was great to have him as our tour guide. The hot water in our room didn't last that long (I asked other guests and they didn't have the same issue so it might have just been our shower) but the room was beautiful, very clean and spacious, and the riad also has a great terrace, very nice included breakfast, and a kitchen for guests to use. One of our favourite places in Morocco, and we would definitely return to the riad if we are ever back in Marrakech! Would certainly recommend!
