“Superb Example.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Dar Attajmil is a superb example of how a Moroccan riad should be run. Lost count of how many times we have stayed but this year's visit was a wonderful reminder of how thoroughly enjoyable the hostess and staff make each and every guest feel. Feel the warmth, relax and spoil yourself.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness centre but there is an in-house Hammam. If possible try to book the Tea Room....o...

We have taken part in a few cooking classes and it has always been a great experience. Cooking in Riad Attajmil was quite different but it was very special for us. First, we were welcome with mint tea. Then we went for a shopping tour in the market. We bought everything that we needed for the dishes. We cooked in the riad's kitchen. We had to cut, peel, wash, slice etc. And we had a great fun.We felt that we were cooking for real. We worked with two friendly ladies and we had the opportunity to talk about life and people in Marroco. It was great fun. After that we had a great feast on the teracce. It was superb.

We loved staying at this beautiful guest house. It has everything you need and more. The breakfast is different every day, and dinners they prepare on request are lovely. Delicious food. The best we have had in Marrakech. It is a busy and crazy town and when you step in to the riad you can really relax. It is in walking distance of all the beautiful musea and the souks are around the corner. The hamam is a wonderful experience. We loved sitting on the roof terrace enjoying the view of the atlas mountains. We hope to be back with our daughters...

My wife and I stayed here in January and had a wonderful experience. Hidden in the Medina, Dar Attajmil was an oasis in Marakech! The staff was outstanding and went out of their way to cater to our every need and want. Our accommodations were unique. We were in the Nomads room and it met our every need. We especially enjoyed the wifi. The food was also outstanding. We ate two dinners at the riad, but we really looked forward to breakfast every morning on the rooftop terrace. Lucrezia (the owner) helped us plan our stay in the months leading up to our visit and made us feel at home.. Then there was Mohammad. What can I say about him. I have never experienced such personal service anywhere in the world. He served our meals and engaged in great conversation with us. Although somewhat new to Dar Attajmil, Lucrezia found a jewel in Mohammad!!

The best part of our stay at the riad was the cooking class. Our guide to Moroccan cooking was Hend. She took us shopping in the streets and then enlightened us on Moroccan cuisine back at the riad. Along with the house cook, Hend really made the trip special.

Honestly, my wife and I found Marrakech a little out of our comfort zone, but Dar Attajmil made the trip for us. If you venture to Marrakech, Dar Attajmil will be your oasis in the sand!

Wonderful small hotel in the Medina. A converted Berber house with bedrooms around a central courtyard. The breakfasts and other meals are excellent. The service is exceptional. The staff went out of their way to find a luggage scale for me. The cooking class was brilliant. Fast wifi in the lounge and courtyard.

We had an excellent time hanging out in one of the many relaxing areas, the hammam or the roof top terrace overlooking the Atlas mountains.

The warm and true hospitable staff will serve you great F&B....for example an everyday changing breakfast and excellent Moroccan food.
They really take care of you....Ibrahim and Mohammed walk the extra mile to make you feel right at home!

Additional upsides: perfect location, just 5 rooms, no tv's, no signatures.

Will return!

We arrived by car, and then had to get to the Riad by walking with a boy pushing our luggage in a barrow. It is situated only 10 minutes walk from the famous square.

We were welcomed with mint tea and biscuits. All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us.

We were in the Tea Room, which was beautifully decorated.

We decided to stay in and eat dinner in the Riad, and all the food was very tasty and beautifully presented. A lot of attention to detail was given. Breakfast was equally good.

I thoroughly recommend this Riad.
