“Still fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

We have stayed at Dar Attajmil a number of times and it never fails to disappoint. The riad is peaceful, beautiful, clean and rooms are lovely. Lucrezia and the staff are friendly, warm and helpful. The riad is also in a great location - close to Djma el Fnaa and Bab Laksour.
I highly recommend this riad.

Like many others, this was our first trip to Marrakech and this riad was recommended by some friends.

It didn't disappoint and was absolutely beautiful. We were well looked after, so much so that on the night of my partners birthday when we decided to have a evening meal at the riad, they presented a birthday cake to my partner. It was so touching and simply reflected the care and attention that the staff give to the place and all who stay at Dar Attajmil.

This is a piece of heaven in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the souk. It's very well situated and only a few minutes walk to the main Square.

We will definitely stay here again and I can't recommend it more highly. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: I expect all the rooms to be as wonderful as the one we stayed in.

This was our first trip to Marrakech and this was the perfect place to base ourselves. From the welcoming cup of mint tea to the organising of the taxi for our trip to the Mountains, this Riad provided for our every need.
Its location is perfect, right in the heart of the Medieval Medina, less than 5 minutes from the main square and souks. When it all got a bit too much you are able to retreat behind an almost hidden large wooden door into a banana tree filled oasis of calm. The relative smallness of this Riad gives an intimacy that absorbs you in, filling you with such peace.
We ate at the Riad for our first night and were blown away by the flavours (and the size) of the meal. Delicious Moroccan salads followed by a traditional tagine and then dessert.
Hassan, who welcomed us at the edge of the Madina (taxis are unable to get to the Riad) and escorted us through the maze of streets (actually only about 400m but felt a world away) waited on us for the rest of the stay, ensuring that we were perfectly looked after.
The breakfasts were served on the roof with a view of the main Koutoubia mineret and were big enough to set us up for the whole day (although it is near impossible not to graze on nuts and olives as you go around the souks).
Our room was well appointed with an excellent shower room, the only interruption was the morning Adhan that reminded us that we had some more sleep to do!
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to any who ask.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Marrakech you won't find better than Riad Dar Attajmil, we absolutely loved it. It was the ideal oasis in this mad mad city. There are only four rooms, so very intimate atmosphere. Lucrezia and her staff, Ibrahim, Hassan, and the totally amazing cooks couldn't have been more friendly and eager to make sure that we were as comfortable as possible.. The rooms are smallish but very clean with fluffy towels and an array of exotic lotions and potions to use in the shower. Much of the action takes place on the roof terrace where you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, or simply relax with a drink and a good book. Notice the word 'drink', it's not that easy to find alcohol in this moslem country but the 'Dar' will always provide you with a cold local beer or a glass of very nice Moroccan wine.
On our last night it was a bit chilly outside so Ibrahim laid out our dinner in one of the small rooms downstairs, he lit the fire and put out scented candles and then served the most wonderful last meal for us. Yum, those artichoke hearts !
As for the city itself, we expected to haggle but we didn't expect to be constantly hassled. We ended up hardly buying anything because even just browsing was such an unpleasant experience. No one will leave you alone and everyone demands money. Don't ask anyone the way or even dare to take anyones photograph because they will ask for money and get quite shirty if they think you haven't given them enough. I know it's a different culture, just takes getting used to I guess.

Lucrezia and her wonderful staff did their best to make our 10 day holiday as enjoyable and easy as possible by booking restaurants and several excursions for us and lending us an adaptor so we could recharge our batteries. We celebrated a birthday and were surprised to be presented with an extravagantly large vase of roses and a card. We had one delicious lunch and dinner at the riad, and breakfast produced new delights every day. We enjoyed the beautiful terrace with lots of different seating areas, ideal for meals and relaxing. The free tea and coffee served with Moroccan pastries was much appreciated. We were sad to leave.

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms can be small, but this does not matter as there are so many places to hang out, ei...

What a perfect place to base your visit to Marrakech in. Lucrezia and her staff (Hassan, Ibrahim and the wonderful cook) are perfect hosts: Very helpful if you need assistance or recomondations, discreet if you want to be and explore on your own - just the way it should be.
The riad is in a perfect location: close to the hotspots (souks, djemma el fna) and taxis but in a quieter street.
We had a wonderful week here in febuary and we will definitely come back.
