“Amazing Experience - Cant Wait to Return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had a truly wonderful stay at Dar Seven. The riad was stunningly beautiful with service to match. Khadija and Rachid made us feel so welcome as if we were part of the family. They really went above and beyond to ensure the long weekend was special as though nothing was too much to ask for.

We stayed in the white room which looks just as the pictures do. Our first night we were treated to a special dinner prepared by Khadija and was the best meal we had had in Marrakesh (including some of the best restaurants in Marrakesh)! We were made to feel like kings and queens dining in the riad's courtyard with nothing being too much trouble.

Khadija and Rashid would escort us to our destinations (even shops and restaurants that were a 30 minute walk away which was great as it is easy to get lost in the market) and give us useful tips as to what to see and do so we never felt lost when exploring. All of the best restaurants and sights we visited were recommended by Khadija - proving that local knowledge is much better than travel guides which we had.

All in all we would highly recommend this riad. It was a fantastic trip and we cannot wait to go back very soon. While there is a lot of choice for hotels and riads in Marrakesh, we would definitely go back to Dar Seven rather than going elsewhere simply because of the beauty of the place and the outstanding service. Having been to various hotels in destinations where they pride themselves on hospitality (Maldives, Mauritius, India, Thailand etc.), the hospitality in this riad was unrivalled. Very, very highly recommended - no need to look elsewhere!

Room Tip: We stayed in the white room which was amazing but our understanding from other guests is that all ro...

My cousin and I arrived at the Dar a few days before New Years Eve. Our Taxi was met by Rashid and he carried our cases through the winding lanes of the Medina. Rashid and Khadija look after the Dar and brilliantly looked after us during our stay. The Dar is simple, tastefully decorated and peaceful. It is nice to come back to after the bustle of the souks. However, don't expect a minibar, television or any other amenities in your room. The towels were slightly thread bear, the lighting a little too minimal and in the winter the room did get quite cold. We did have a heater but it was a little temperamental. This is a perfect place to stay if you want to be in the Medina for a few days and if you are a couple. We were two women in our thirties and we had to call Rashid to come and get us from the taxi drop off every evening after 9ish as it was a little daunting walking back on our own. The best thing about the hotel is the personal and undivided service. Khadija and Rashid could not do enough to ensure we had a great time. They booked restaurants and walked us to the main square on the first day and made me a wheat free breakfast (as I am allergic to wheat). Nothing was impossible. They were lovely. You don't get this service in 4/5 Star standard hotel.

Room Tip: The White room is the biggest, but they are all nice rooms and all have a view of the courtyard.

My first impression is that it looks exactly as it does in the photos of their website. Our room was on the ground floor, and was very spacious and well-designed. The only small gripe is the low lighting in the room that made getting ready a little challenging, but everything about the Riad is so peaceful.

The location is right in the heart of the Medina, and it is possible to get a bit lost navigating the narrow streets. But Rashid came and met us from the taxi drop-off point, along with 2 men who took our cases in a trolley. The walk to the Riad allowed us to familiarise ourselves with the route to the main streets, which was easy to retrace later on.

On Rashid's recommendation, we booked a table at the restaurant next door, which was great, although the portions were huge. Good local wine and unrushed service, plus a short walk home afterwards.

Breakfast the next morning was a mix of traditional Moroccan, with some French bits, and was very enjoyable. Rashid was on hand throughout and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble.

Very pleased to have found, and stayed here.

OCTOBER 12 - 16. 2012
Cannot say enough wonderful adjectives to describe Dar Seven and the attention to detail by Khadila and Rashid. We stayed in the White room and our 27 year old son in the Brown room, all beautifully equipped for comfort. Would suggest best way to enjoy the Riad is to book the entire place and enjoy the four rooms,sitting rooms and rooftop terrace with all your friends.We arrived after driving over the Atlas Mountains with Colours of Morocco guide Hicham into a true oasis of tranquility. The elegance of muted tones, magnificent palm tree accompanied by resident bird song in simple courtyard soothed our senses and made us feel so welcome. It is so important for tourists to visit this beautiful place and enjoy the friendliest gentle people. Khadila prepared a truly sensational dinner one evening before we set out at dawn the next morning to go hot air ballooning with Marrakesh by Air - definitely a must do experience! Pia

I spent a long w/end in dar seven with my friend Hilary, as we were two females travelling alone we wanted to feel safe and secure in a country that neither of us had travelled to before.
We were met at the airport and taken most of the way to the raid, as the street to the raid was very narrow we had to walk the last little bit. Rashid took our luggage and we followed him through the streets looking at each other and both thinking " where on earth is he taking us"!! We arrived at the Riad 5 minutes later, Our first impression was " how beautiful and how peaceful ..... and that first impression stayed with us. Rashid made us delicious mint tea and served some lovely biscuits. Throughout our stay both Rashid and Khadija were so helpful, Rashid would always be on hand to guide us through the maze of streets, and we definitely needed that help...
Our breakfast was so delicious and there was so much of it we lasted until the evening without having anything else to eat. I would definitely stay again and I don't think it will be long before I go back.

Room Tip: The brown room is delightful, with single beds which helps when it is so hot!

If you would like to experience a little piece of paradise, go stay in Dar Seven. Khadija and her team make your stay in magical Morocco even more enchanting from helpfully escorting you round the maze of the Medina to preparing scrumptious private dinners or mouth-watering breakfasts. Proof that Italians do have extra-ordinary taste, the Dar designed by an Italian herself, is chic-Moroccan; elegant, tasteful and simply stunning it is a welcome retreat from the bustle of the old-town and one of the few places where silence is the norm. We expected Marrakesh to be charming but did not quite expect the level of attention and relaxation found in Dar Seven. We have only praise for Dar Seven and its staff a truly mesmerizing Moroccan Riad.

Room Tip: The White room is the largest and overlooks the riad courtyard - it was beautiful!

Dar Seven is a beautiful Italian design 4 bedroom riad with personal service in heart of the Medina. We were surprised when our airport transfer stopped just as the streets became too narrow for cars. We were met by Rashid,one our two hosts, to walk the last 5 minutes to the Riad (he managed the luggage). The luxury began the moment we entered the central courtyard where were welcomed with Moroccan mint tea and mouthwatering biscuits & cakes. We were shown to our room which gratefully was fully air conditioned (an absolute necessity in the summer) and had a huge, beautiful bathroom.Breakfast was fabulous: french style cafe creme, tartine, pancakes, fresh fruit, with delicious jams. Although it was too hot during our stay to make use of the rooftop terrace, we lounged in the common rooms and enjoyed the music and our relaxing surroundings. When we went out, we were guided to and/or picked up from our restaurant, the Souk, etc. When we saw a similar riad, we realized how spacious and calm our own riad was. Staying at Dar Seven is like holidaying at a friends' house and having their staff take care of you, lovely to come home to!

Room Tip: Loggia, White and Brown rooms upstairs are the best. Guest room is on the same floor as the common r...
