      Historical Traveler Reviews Dar Taliwint Marrakech

      Fell in love...

      from

      Our three night stay at Dar Taliwint was perfect : an unbeatable location in a picturesque and safe area, a superb riad,

      a characterful and comfortable bedroom with an amazing bathroom, the most welcoming hosts and staff, delicious breakfasts and ....very good value for money. It was so relaxing and also very romantic for us. We just fell in love with this place, with the people, with Marrakech and will be back as soon as possible.

      An elegant and intimate trip back in time

      from

      My recent stay at Dar Taliwint in Marrakech was an elegant and intimate trip back in time. From the moment that I entered the exquisitely ordained patio with the soothing sounds of its' prominent waterfall, I felt both a calm and excitement take over me at the same time. It was clear to me that that I was in a most unique venue in a notably historic African city.

      The gracious service extended to us by the staff and proprietors of Dar Taliwint commenced upon our arrival. They were there to meet us at the airport in Marrakech and share some quality time and local insight with us over some relaxing mint tea.

      The decor of our room matched the authentic Moroccon aesthetics of those in the patio. It was comfortable and inviting for an American city girl with all of the amenities of home. This traditional yet contemporary decor ran throughout the four rooms looking down on the patio, as well as its' library, salon and the outlining terraces.

      As two women traveling alone we were most appreciative of the attention paid to us by the marvelous proprietors and staff. Both Dominique and Lenaick spoke perfect English and assisted us in properly planning our daily itineraries. Further, they provided us with an overview of the city and instructed us as to the local culture and mores so that we felt extremely safe. Souad was an angel who prepared these sumptuous amazing breakfasts. Both she and Younes were always available to attend to any household needs that might arise. It should be noted that while the staff was extremely accomodating they were likewise discreet and allowed for our privacy.

      Dar Taliwint is centrally located in the heart of the Medina where most historic sights are walking distance: Jemaa el Fna, Koutoubia Mosque, Bahia Palace. Others can be accessed by either a longer walk, a scooter ride or a reasonable taxi fare. What was so very special about Dar Taliwint is that despite its central locale one felt extremely remote within the confines of it's walls which tended to create a state of calm and peace. For us a nice antidote to the hustle and bustle of the Medina.

      There is still much that I would like to see in Morocco. There is no question that upon my return I will revisit Dar Taliwint and make it both my initial and final destination during the course of my travels

      Un privilège

      from

      Merci à trip Advisor pour les bons plans. Celui-là en est un. Nous venons de passer un séjour privilégié dans ce superbe riad authentiquement ancien. Nous nous sommes sentis "chez nous" tellement l'accueil est amical et généreux. Outre les propriétaires chaleureux, le personnel est attentif et souriant.

      La déco est un mélange subtil de traditionnel et de contemporain. On ne sait où poser l'oeil pour admirer chaque détail soigné. Notre chambre était très agréable et confortable (excellente literie) et bien chauffée en cette période fraîche le soir. Les petits déjeuners délicieux changent tous les jours.

      On se régale aussi des livres magnifiques de la bibliothèque. La musique berce toujours les lieux et ajoute à l'atmosphère délicate et raffinée. La vue de la terrasse est époustouflante (ah, les couchers de soleil sur les montagnes enneigéesl!), bel endroit pour s'imprégner de la medina et rêver à la nature grandiose.

      Une adresse que je recommande plus que vivement même si on aimerait presque la garder pour soi.

      Le bonheur est dans le riad

      from

      Entrer dans cette maison, c'est à la fois se sentir irrésistiblement chez soi, et à la fois ressentir immédiatement la chaleur de ses hôtes. Le sourire matinal de Souad et de Youness vous prépareront à des journées riches en émotion : tant de merveilles d'architectures, toutes ces odeurs, ces couleurs, ces sourires... vous êtes vraiment à Marrakech.

      Et le soir venu, laisser Dominique vous conter quelques histoires dans le patio, le tout dans une ambiance baroque dont Lénaïck sait étonnement composé avec le lieu.

      Vous comprendrez qu'ici, chaque chose à sa place. A vous d'y découvrir la vôtre.

      Merci pour tout et à très très bientôt.

      Little Gem of Marrakech

      from

      Our first time visit to Marrakech was extra special, because of our stay at Dar Taliwint. The experience of staying at this unique house made our time really memorable.

      This Riad is an original house of about a century ago, completely restored. The rooms are very comfortable and the morroco style decor with fresh flowers, the fountain and the coloured walls of the shower were thankful subjects for romantic photographs.

      Dar Taliwint is very easy to find (something rare in the Medina), just behind the Bahia Palace and about 8 (or was it 5 :) minutes walking distance from the main square.

      Thanks Lénaick and Dominique for the wonderful service! Getting up at five in the morning to prepare our sandwiches for the flight back... not something to expect at any hotel. Your friendly help meant discovering many of the special spots of Marrakech with ease.

      We'll be back!

      Chaleur de l'accueil

      from

      Au-delà la beauté du lieu, c'est l'ambiance extraordinaire qui prévaut dans ce "dar" d'exception. On est à Marrakech, vraiment. Nous nous attendions, vu les photos du site, à un magnifique décor de simplicité luxueuse; nous avons eu davantage encore : la beauté et le goût, certes mais en plus, un accueil à la fois professionnel et amical. Sans conteste, nous y reviendrons. Merci à Lénaïck et Dominique.

      Votre maison à Marrakech

      from

      Idéalement situé, au plus près des lieux essentiels de Marrakech, Dar Taliwint est un petit bijou, fait de raffinement et d'élégance, où règne la douceur de vivre. Souad, Dominique, Lenaïck et Younes vous offrent un accueil chaleureux, attentif à vos moindres désirs, et néanmoins discret. Quatre belles chambres, au décor aussi esthétique qu'authentique encadrent un frais patio , véritable coeur du Dar, qui invite aux échanges paisibles, autour d'un savoureux petit déjeuner .Quelques touches occidentales, picturales ou musicales, se mêlent subtilement à cette pure ambiance marocaine.

      A portée d'avion, à portée de bourse, à portée de coeur, un lieu où l'on revient avec un bonheur chaque fois renouvelé.

      Un havre de paix

      from

      Ce superbe Riad est situé à la fois au coeur de la Médina de Marrakech et à l'écart du bruit de la foule des ruelles du souk, au calme d'un derb qui est presque "résidentiel". J'ai particulièrement apprécié de vivre à deux pas du merveillleux Palais de la Bahia, du Melha et autres lieux de fascinants, et de pouvoir venir me repposer dans ce lieu si paisible, véritablement marrakchi dans sa décoration authentique, qui ne donne pas l'impression de vivre au milieu d'un magazine de mode ! C'est un vrai lieu de vie où j'ai apprécié d'être comme "chez moi" au milieu d'objets d'art tant européens que marocains et non dans une sorte de pseudo hôtel de "style-marocain-mode-branché".

      Les hôtes de ce Riad, Dominique et Lénaïck, sont charmants et toujours prêts à vous venir en aide, tant pour organiser des visites de la ville que de la région qui offre aussi des sites superbes. Ils sont aussi disponibles pour parler de la vie au Maroc autour d'un verre, et vous faire sentir la vérité de ce peuple complexe et passionnant

      Un grand Merci à Souad et Younès qui vous accompagnent avec grâce dans la vie quotidienne avec leur charme et leur sourire.

      En bref, un vrai moment de Bonheur ! Profitez-en à votre tour...

      Very special

      from

      Dar Taliwint is a very special place being located right in the medina of Marrakech but in a very quite and "residential" area, next to the glamorous Bahia Palace.

      The Riad is a very peacefull home where you feel free to hang around in the patio or the library with other guests you might meet or with Dominique & Lenaïck who are great hosts, being warm and present when you wish to be helped, advised or just have a drink and talk about the life in Marrakech.

      This is why you really feel "at home" in this place beautifully decorated with pieces of european art, as well as very authentic marocan pieces of furniture and decoration.

      I warmly recommand this Riad to people who like to be in the center of the excitment of the medina and at the same time appreciate a certain kind of intimacy and peace. On top of it, the riad is really typical but not "too much", which makes you feel as a guest and not as a tourist.

      Enjoy it as I did and Have a great time in Marrakech !

      Slice of Heaven

      from

      Riad Dar Taliwint is a delightful, superbly decorated small Riad (only 4 rooms) in a nice quiet section of the Medina, about 10 minute walk south of the main square. The warm hospitality given by host Dominque begins when he greets you at the taxi drop-off point, escorts you down the laneway, through the big wooden doors into the haven of the RIad's courtyard, where you are greeted with sweet mint tea. The rooms are gorgeous, chic and elegant with beautiful colours. Our stay here was fantastic and very homely....and represented fantastic value for money when you compare the high costs that other 'chic' riads are charging. Highly recommended.

      It's our last day - so as we have half empty bags we have to fill them! So it's off to the souks to do some haggling. Lamps first - three coloured lamps for less than £15, bargains I think. Real leather babouches for 200 dirhams, some pots, a teapot and a lovely leather pouff. And a lovely punched metal lamp. Done. Lunch at bourganvillia - tasty pizzas! Back to pack our bags then off to the airport to head home. What a fantastic week, love Morocco, hope we'll be back ...

      The rest of the day was spent driving to Essouira, we manged to find heaps of goats in trees on the journey which was really cool. This is the only region that grows Argan oil trees (Moroccan oil) and the goats climb right to the tops ...

      ... was at the embassy less than an hour, but the early morning didn't have me enthused for any sightseeing and Rabat is the capital and an economic hub so not that hot on tourist destinations anyway. I made my way back to the train station had a spot of lunch and bought my ticket - this time remembering to by the 1st class ticket being all of $8 more expensive to guarantee that I would have a seat in an air conditioned cabin. For some reason the train ride back ...
