“14-18th June Dar najat highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2009

I cannot beleive the last comment posted about this Riad, and hope that readers look at all the other comments as i did before i booked. I feel the last comment is totally unjustified. Yes the cab fare is 18 euros and well worth it to have someone greet you in a foreign country and take you personally to the Riad. Yes you could get a cab from the airport, but beleive me your first experience would be haggling the price and probably end up paying more, the cab driver more than likely would not be able to find the riad, marrakech is a large city of many places/alley ways. Whilst we were out and about a lot of the cab drivers would say they knew where you wanted to go but they diddn't! Anyway i hope you read my experience of dar najat to get an unbiased truthful revue.
I am 46 and travelled with my husband, I always do extensive research before travelling. I looked at many riads on the internet, and read many reviews on trip advisor in order to make my decision. My husband wanting 5 star Luxury and me wanting to have a real experience, you can stay in a 5 star anywhere in the world and probably not have made any real memories to look back on. We also spent 4 nights at eden andalou resort and spa- a compromise for my husband. My criteria was easy walking distance to the main square- this was an easy 5 mins, Air conditioning-a definate must as the first couple of days it was 48 degrees. Cleanliness- the riad is spotlessly clean, good service- It was evident from the emails before we booked the riad that service was very important here, I have travelled to many places and am delighed to say that the service i received here was better than anywhere else I have ever been. All the staff are absolutely charming, and cannot do enough for you, they have obviously been well trained by Olivier, who is a master at customer service. They would pop to the local shop and buy diet coke, if i wanted it, all at no charge, and were delighted to do it. Made sure i always had tea in the morning with my breakfast. Cooked us a fantastic meal one night. Personally walked us to the square to show us the way. Another occasion to the spice market. When I had a headache, instantly appeared with a tablet, they were all absolutely fantastic. i do feel it is experiences and people that make your trip a good one and coupled with great value for money, you have a recipe for success, This is what the Dar najat has, and on top of that for our stay all soft drinks/tea cofee were free (this offer might only be a certain times of the year so do check with them). I am missing the Dar najat already and hugs and kisses to you Olliver, Amin, Siad and Leyla and the funny man I forget his name. Thank you for a wonderful stayxxx

We 've been a few days at the Dar Najat, and definitely, it was better than we tought. The staff is amazing, and we feel like being at home. The food is great, and the location perfect. I really recommend it.

For my boyfriend's birthday I booked a long weekend in May 2008 to Marrkaech and booked our stay with Riad Dar Najat.

From the initial correspondence, Oliver, owner and host, was very helpful and very friendly and he was very patienty with my multiple emails as I had to ensure everything was perfect for my boyfriend's birthday and it was. I even booked for an evening to have Oliver and team make their home made tagine (fish tagine for us) to have up on the roof; the food was terrific in a very romantic setting on the roof.

Our room was lovely as was the whole Riad, well kept, very clean, and very well designed in a great location to the heart of Marrakech; good for a bit of tranquility after a day exploring Marrakech.

Along with Oliver, Amin and his team ensure you are always well looked after and well taken care of from walking us to the square for the first time so we knew where to go, to ensuring we were well hydrated on the very hot days chilling on the roof to just being friendly all the time.

Oliver is a great host, very fun and very helpful and Riad Dar Najat is a favourite spot for me that I hope to visit again one day. Thanks to you and your team Oliver.

Monsieur Oliver, his lovely wife Souad & the wonderful Amin + the rest of the team, MADE our trip to Marrakech (sorry, you too Brownie - aka Bruni in French). Riad Dar Najat is indeed a haven of everything you could wish for in the madhouse that is Marrakech. All the staff are fantastic, but Oliver is tops - one of the finest hosts in any place I have stayed anywhere in the world - the food is also A1 - once we ate there in the evening, we did not go anywhere else. Customer satisfaction lives on in the Riad Dar Najat ........ Thank you, Carina & Holly XXXXXXXX

Staying in Marrakech at Dar Najat feels like home. The kind staff is very helpfull and ,even unasked, tries to make your stay one of the best I ever experienced. The nicely restored Riad is only a few minutes walk from the Plaza. If you get lost they certainly will come and search for you, but it is hard to get really lost as people in Marrakech will always sent you back to the central Plaza. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated, the beds sleep well. The bathrooms are clean and even taking a shower is very good, which is hard to find in most places in Marocco.
I'll be back one day that's for sure!

We stayed there from the 17th April for a 7 day stint over both of our birthdays. Absolutely lovely riad, excellent room, staff, food and location. Really just a couple of streets away from the main place. A real oasis in the middle of one crazy city with .... and you'll believe me after you've tried it.. the best food in town.

Oliver and team were absolutely great and truely made our introduction to Marrakech an absolute pleasure. It felt like we had our own concierge to hand, advising on what to see, making bookings, guiding us through the endless alleys and making us feel at home.

Thank you again - "The English!"
