Wifi is spotty, especially in the rooms. For best wifi, you will need to use it downstairs in the common area. The location, as is the case with other medinas in Moroccan cities, is down a quiet, dark road in the medina which can be a little intimidating at night. We didn't have any big problems thanks to use of a GPS, but know that it is relatively hard to find.
We stayed at this riad two different times during our stay in Morocco. The riad is beautiful and a great value for money. Our room was quiet, comfortable and had powerful air conditioning (which was a blessing in 100-110F degree heat). Breakfast was basic but a good start to the day. Hassan was helpful when we had questions and very nice. The location is relatively good - only a 10-15 min walk from Djemaa el-Fna. You do have to carry your bags in to the medina from the road, but Hassan emailed us in advance to organize an airport pickup so we could easily get to the riad, which was incredibly helpful given it's hard to find the first time. I would recommend taking advantage of this if you are coming from the airport.

Insect issue (which was immediately resolved thanks to helpful staff); little bit of a walk away from the main square
Breakfast was delicious and abandunt; staff was very friendly and helpful; calm and cool atmosphere; very safe location, even late at night

Hassan is a brilliant host. He suited breakfast around out schedule without being asked. We really enjoyed our stay and have nothing but good things to say. The location is great, among the locals.

The owner really makes the experience. He's helpful and kind, it was quiet inside the riad and comfortable, the free breakfast was great and we were welcomed by mint tea and some sweet treats.

Good location, good decoration of the rooms and of the Riad. The breakfast was pretty good! The size of the room was a little bit small. Hassan, the person incharge of the Riad was really nice and really helpful!

The Riad was small and friendly. Hassan the host could not have been more helpful.

Not in the nicest part of town, but felt quite safe. 25 minute walk to Jamaa el Fna (Main Square). Impossible to find on your own as the Medina is a maze of narrow streets.
Hassan the manager was charming and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with a different selection every day. Plentiful hot water, comfortable bed. We were recommended to book a transfer by taxi which proved to be invaluable.

After taking three long flights to Morocco, we were delighted to be greeted by Hassan who served us mint tea and sweets. He handed us maps of the medina (with handwritten notes) and told us that he upgraded us to a larger room. It was a lovely stay! Highly recommended!

Our first impression was of a fresh air in all the noise of the medina. Hassan gave us good advice about the places are safe to eat, and the others we should avoid, he printed maps and showed us the best way to get to Jemaa el fna square, even at night as the route was illuminated. He is a wonderful person and was nice to meet him. The room was big, clean and warm, and the bathroom best in all Morocco(and we visited a lot). The breakfast had enough food for starting a new crazy day in the streets of the medina. The best surprise we got was on the 25th of December, when I got a present even though they do not celebrate Christmas. We were very happy for the chose we made, because a good sleep and a trustfully host are imperative in Marrakech.

Tranquil and friendly place in a residential area of the medina - which allowed us to see a not so touristic side of Marrakech, while at the same time being in about 15 minutes walking distance to the main square. Hassan is a lovely, helpful host, and the riad a comfortable refuge from the hustle and bustle in the streets!
December 22, 2014
Monsieur Hassan is the perfect host, very friendly and hospitable. We were treated with utmost kindness and even got up very very early to make breakfast for us on the day of departure. We highly recommend this beautiful Dar!
October 28, 2014
The location was about a ten minute walk from the main square, make sure you arrange a pick up or you may not find the riad!
Hassan, the manager was fantastic gave us lots of tips and could not do enough to make sure we had a great stay. Riad was very clean, comfortable and quiet.

Very friendly place, perfect location for discovering the medina and all it has to offer. rthe Riad is very well ap[pointed and quiet and Hassan the manager very professional and helpful

We have been warmly welcomed by Hassan, who offered us peppermint tea and typical Moroccan pastries. He was very kind and glad to help us with our requests. He also provided useful information of the surroundings and showed us how to find the way back in the narrow and overcrowded Medina streets. His great hospitality made our stay unforgettable. Riad Dar Othmane is a peaceful oasis in a chaotic and colourful labyrinth!

All is right.
We feel like home. Hassan is a great host, tactful and kind. Always ready to help us. I loved the wellcome. Going into this place is like an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the madness of Marrakech. We realy liked this riad. It's quiet; all is clean; very comfortable beds; good hot showers; air-condition; nice roof. First day, I recommend you pick up service to avoid be lost. Next days, you can get to main square fifteen minutes walking.

Hassan was extremely friendly and helpful and we became friends very quickly. He was especially good about giving us tips in how to manage life in Marrakesh! Similarly, once we came to understand how the windy streets of the Medina worked, we realised just how accessible to everything the Riad was, which came in very handy for our short layover in Marrakesh.

Hassan's customer service was absolutely outstanding and he always went the extra mile. He greeted us with fresh peppermint tea and Morrocan pastries and the breakfast was beautifully presented and very tasty. He is a lovely host and we have been very well looked after.

I stayed at Riad Dar Othmane for 4 days and it was the best experience with such an accommodation. I felt better than at home. Hassan is the best host in the world. I have travelled a lot and stayed in many different places in the world but never experienced better hospitality than from Hassan. He is a wonderful and charming person. I wish there were more people like him in the world. He is very kind, very helpful and he prepares and serves the best breakfast. The location of riad is fine, not far from the main square and in very quiet street. The rooms are very cosy with lovely decoration and very clean. If you are planning to stay in Marrakech you can not miss the opportunity of staying in riad and meeting Hassan. Enjoy your stay in Marrakech with Hassan and Riad Dar Othmane.
May 10, 2014
Overall, it is a very pleasant riad and good value for money. We must emphasize the sympathy and kindness of Hassan. He was very helpful before and during our stay and he prepares a great breakfast!

Rampant everywhere which really is hazardous and not safe for everybody but especially for children or elderly. Taxis drop off and pick up quite some distance away from the riad so you will need help to get your bags to and from the hotel. Make sure you book this with the riad.
Room very traditional and comfortable. Hassan was very helpful and speaks good English. We were welcomed with refreshments and bags were kindly held for us on the afternoon of departure once we had booked out. The riad itself is very comfortable and safe but the surrounding area is very poor with a very long & confusing walk to the square. The riad is not sign posted and even the taxi drivers have difficulty finding its location. I would suggest this is not a place for elderly people or those with a walking disability. However those who want to experience traditional morocco and are fit might well like its location.

It is a clean and quiet place to stay not far from jema el fna. Very good brekfast and Hassan is a friendly host and very discreet

We cannot agree with the good comments to that Riad! We were very, very angry and disappointed about the support of the owner, because he knows exactly all the problems to find a Parking and to find the Riad itself. Before I wrote an E-Mail to the owner "How can we find the Riad, we are coming by car". He sent us his mobile number and the Name of the parking outside the medina. When we arrived we asked several persons for the Parking. Finally a man with a motobike accompanied us to a parking. But it was not the right parking (but we didn't recognize that). We gave this moto-man money and he phoned to the owner, how we could come to the Riad. The owner himself said he had no time to come and help us, but it would be easy to find him. It seemed clear-but, it wasn't. Then the Parkplace Guardian came to demand a huge amount "parking fee" for one day. I would not pay this huge amount and asked the "Guardian" to accompany us to our booked Riad. The man with the moto also accomponied us. We walked with all our luggage almost one hour up and down through the medina -obviously nobody knew the right way to that Riad. When we arrived our host said he would not be responsable for this disaster and it would be our problem to find the Riad. All our "helping friends" would have a lot of money and a discussion over minutes began for that. The rooms in the Riad are very small and outside in the breakfast-room you will hear everything-every little pups on the toilet. To walk inside the Medina of Marrakech is a "horror walk". The roads a narrow and in opposite to Fes or Meknes, people are allowed to drive with the moto-bike. You can't imagine how the air pollution, the smell of benzin the mass of people, and the attentivenest to crazy moto bikers are stripping your nerves. So we'll never come back to that place.
The Riad has been good restored. The inside place is a lovely place.
