“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We were rather pessimistic about our trip to the Riad dar Atta having found a really cheap deal on KGB Destinations. However we were pleasantly surprised - the Riad was gorgeous inside, nice rooms (although we had issues with our shower constantly being freezing cold so the maintenance man made almost daily trips to our room!), and great breakfast. The best thing though is the location - 5/10 min walk to the main square. Marrakech is so beautiful so I would recommend the city and this Riad to anyone.

This humble, very clean and nicely appointed riad is a great find. The manager, Hassin and his staff are so nice and very accommodating. They have a hammam that my son really enjoyed. Simple breakfast every morning was just enough to start the day. Our only complaint was that it was a bit noisy at night while we were there because they were having some work done and it was way to hot to do that during the day. Get ready for the rooster as well who starts at about 3 am and finishes about the time you need to get on your way for the day. Don't under estimate the street location so you don't have to drag luggage down the alleys - also convenient for taxis etc. A great value.

Room Tip: We had the delux suite which gave us room to relax. Great bathroom, sunny and AC!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of November.
Things we liked -
1. Andy and the rest of the staff - all very friendly and happy to chat and give tips of what to do. Offered us use of their internet and booked excursions for us. We didn't even mind being woken up by guitar and singing late at night because it was all part of the atmosphere and made me feel like I was on my gap year again (and thus 20 years younger!)
2. the homemade coffee - bought 1kg and it tastes good even when drinking outside of Morocco.
3. the location - easy walk to main square, attractions etc
4. breakfast - although after 4 days we were ready for a change
5. day trip arranged through Splash Morocco to a Berber house, wobbly bridge, herb farm/shop, trek to waterfall, restaurant and including a camel ride. Great day out of the city.

Not so good
1. decor - is all a bit tired, although the mice seemed to like it. rooms were ok, clean but basic. towells were rough.
2. costs - £20 from airport feels like we were being taken advantage of not knowing it is less than a 10 minute journey. £10 back to airport is still on the high side compared to taxis and when the driver also went in to pick someone else up...£30 for a 20 min round trip...!
3. carpet shop on the day trip - could do without stopping here as it was quite a "salesy" place and the only time where we felt pressurised.

Overall this accomodation is "good" but made very good by the friendly staff..

We really enjoyed our stay at Dar Atta. We had a lower room the first night and were then moved to a quieter room near the top of the riad which was beautiful! The rooms were spacious, clean, and very comfortable.
We really enjoyed the hamman and the staff are amazing. Andy and Marcie are extremely helpful and made the stay enjoyable and entertaining.
The riad is located very close to the main square and souks which was very handy.
Would recommend to everyone.

we had a fabulous time staying at Dar Atta - we all thought the rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable and the Riad itself was peaceful and relaxing. We had no complaints - the breakfasts were fine (could have had fresh orange juice though). The riad is in a great location, close to the square but still quiet. The best bits were the hammam and the staff - Andy and Marcie were very welcoming and really went out of their way to welcome us and help us with our trip.
We would all definately go back.

The great staff and friendly service make this comfortable Riad feel like your own home. Located just on the edge of the Medina means you can loose yourself in the souks within minutes but still easily find your way back home at night.

I cannot stress how helpful Andy and the team were during our stay at Dar Atta. From the very first they looked after us and made us feel at home in the beautiful surroundings. We had booked the 3 night kgb deal, however Andy had no problem with us changing our plans and splitting our stay into 3 single nights rather than 3 consecutive. They were very knowledgeable about Marrakech and the rest of the country, and gave us some very good advice about where we should head to next.

The rooms were large and well finsihed, and there is a great chill out area downstairs or a roof terrace for a bit of sun bathing. The breakfast is very bread based, but once we told them my friend was gluten intolerant they provided fruit and yogurt for her. The only tiny niggle is that the towels and robes provided were a bit scratchy, but this seemed to be the same everywhere we stayed in Morocco.

Once again, thanks to Andy, Ismail and Ali for being such great hosts.
