“Serene oasis with elegant decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

After meandering the alleys of the medina, we entered into a breath of fresh air that is the elegant and simple Dar Seven. The bright white light that shines through the ceiling windows and bounces off the white linen table settings immediately gave us a feeling of serenity and comfort. No wonder the decor is so tasteful, as it is the dar of the gracious princess Ruspoli of italy, whom we had the pleasure of meeting.

Besides the decor, which suffice it so say is out of an Elle decor magazine, the service was wonderful. From little touches like providing the wifi password and a list recommended restaurants upon checkin, to the pre-programmed mobile telephone in your room, and to Rashcid walking you out to the medina, we were well taken care of every second of our stay.

Overall, we had a perfect stay. Thanks to everyone!

I spent four nights at Dar Seven just this past New Years, and could not have been happier. The riad is perfectly located within walking distance to the souks and all the action, but it felt like a quiet oasis. We were fortunate enough to have booked the stunning White Room, with its high ceilings and lush canopy bed and elegant bathroom.
Aside from the gorgeous design and great location, what really made the place special was the amazing service, starting with the initial contact with Beatrice. Our hosts really went out of their way to look after us and make travel and dinner reservations and New Years Eve party arrangements. Amal and Rachid really made us feel like part of their family.
Don't miss out on dinner at Dar Zellij, just a few steps away!

A relief of calm from the mind boggling mazes of the medina. The design of the hotel is traditional riad simplified. Elegant blacks, creams and whites punctuated with luxurious linens and bespoke bedding. Our room, the white room, sumptuous with the most beautiful tadelekat bathroom.
Our hosts are what made the stay wonderful. Upon arrival, the stoic and attentive Rashid prepared mint tea and other local treats, the walls of the riad bathed in Candlelight. Rashid, seeing my interest in learning about tadelekat arranged for me to visit a riad under renovation where he showed me what the process was. He even gave me a kind gift of plater to do my own experimenting. Khadijah, warm and equally as attentive, booked reservations for us and answered the most tedious questions with a smile on her face.
The breakfasts here are a feast. Thick yougurt, pastries, excellent cofeee, cheeses..it was hard to tear ourselves away from the table.
The owner of the riad has set a tone of warmth and elegance. I hope that you will have an opportunity to experience the magical few days that I spent here. This is a place to fall in love.

Room Tip: The white and black rooms are beautiful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We loved staying at Dar Seven. It was beautiful and the people were lovely and so helpful. We arrived late, and the dinner they prepared for us was one of the best we had during our stay in Marrakech. The riad is an easy walk to the souks, but just far enough away to be quiet and out of the bustle. They gave us a cell phone when we arrived, which was so helpful because we definitely got lost on a few occasions.They also arranged cabs for us and escorted us to and from dinner on our night out. The design and location of the hotel are fabulous, but it was really the staff that made all the difference.

The only reason we would give it 4 stars instead of 5 was the bed. Neither my husband or I slept particularly well during our stay. On the whole, I think we'd likely stay here again despite the bed because I can't imagine a more lovely place or better people.

Also, an additional word to the wise. The riad is off a tiny side alley and not accessible by cab - you'll have to walk the last little bit. They will pick you up at the airport and you should definitely go this route. We somehow missed this detail and took a cab which turned out to be slightly terrifying as our driver was first very lost and then left us with a group of teenagers who walked us to the hotel. The staff was always more than happy to arrange transportation for us - they actually had someone waiting for us at the airport we just missed her. Totally our mistake, but a little frightening nonetheless.

We spent three nights at Dar Seven after a week outside the city. It's close to all the main city sights and is within easy walking distance of most of them, including the souks. The Riad is an oasis of calm after a day out in the bustle of the city and is decorated to a high standard. What really sets it apart from other places we've stayed is its staff. They are exceptionally kind ad helpful and no request is too much to ask. Upon arrival we were provided with a mobile phone with their contact details so that we could call them in the event that we got lost in the souks owned they escorted us to and from dinner. Thank you to Khadijah and Rashid for a wonderful stay.

Khadijah and Rashid both made our stay a pleasant one. They booked restaurants for us, arranged taxis to and from restaurants, and made us feel at home. We were welcomed on arrival with mint tea and cakes. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious (especially the french toast!). The room that we stayed in (white room) overlooked the courtyard. It was spacious, decorated with local furnishings, and the bathroom was really nice. The riad is about a 15 minute walk to the main square market, Overall, I would highly recommend Dar Seven!

We spent two weeks at Dar Seven, and had a marvelous time. It's a beautiful house, but what really made the difference were the people. Lubna kept everything clean and fresh, and Khadijah both helped us with our outings and provided excellent breakfasts and dinners. She's a very good cook, and gave us the best food we had in Marrakech. Lastly, Rachid went beyond the call of duty, collecting us at the edge of the medina, if we had been out at night, and guiding us back through the narrow alleys. A wonderful stay, made more so by the people of the Riad. We hadn't meant to stay so long in Marrakech, but after a few days at this Riad we realized that this would be the loveliest holiday we could have.
