Having researched many Riad prior to our visit and on the basis of many sparkling reviews, we decided to use Dar Najat as our base in Marrakech. Travelling frequently and being used to overly exaggerated reviews, my wife & I gear up for possible disappointment when we arrive at any accommodation, but we were more than impressed by this lovely old building.
Oliver the French owner has substantially renovated this ancient Riad with flair & imagination, resulting in a perfect blend of modern chic and olde worlde charm. The interior of the Riad looks like a Moroccan antique shop with lovely furniture and great colours. The rooms are interesting and cosy and the open terrace on the top floor which serves as a breakfast and dinner area is lovely and open to the sky. There is a Jacuzzi to cool your feet and a pet tortoise which patrols up and down snapping up any available vegetables.
The staff including Moo Moo and Midou were friendly and more than accommodating and positively eager to help in any way. On our first afternoon, Midou showed us the way to the famous Jamaa el Fna square which is very close to Dar Najat - another reason to choose to stay here - and Abdou the person who picked us up from the airport became our personal guide through our time in Marrakech, showing us around the city, to the Atlas mountains and also to Essouria, a lovely relaxed fishing town with lovely beaches and great surfing.
All in all this well located and comfortable Riad must offer one of the best places to 'hang your hat' whilst battling through the hustle and bustle of life in Marrakech. The experienced staff and relaxing ambience coupled with a cold beer or chilled glass of rose - one of the few places we were able to find an alcoholic drink - makes Dar Najat a memorable place to stay in Marrakech.
