“The Coolest Riad in Marrakech - for sure !!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2009

The "Coolest Riad in Marrakech" lives up to it's name in more ways than one. The lower floor offers pleasant relief from the daytime heat of the city and the whole Riad is comfortable , relaxing and welcoming. The facilities are everything you would expect and more with plenty of comfortable seating, a cool jacuzzi and quiet spots to relax. What really makes this place special are the amazing staff, Oliver, Said, Amin ( the only Rasta in Marrakech ) ! and the ladies Malika and Touriya who are always there for you without being intrusive and are more than willing to help with anything from arranging Doctor's visits to trips to the Atlas and even going out and buying yogurt when I fancied some ! Dinner is available upon request and is delicious, especially the giant cous-cous royale ! Oliver, the owner, is a genuinely nice guy - he is lively , has much to say ( all amusing ) and really means for his Riad to be your home while you are there . We can honestly say that this is how it felt to stay here, if only hosts and staff were this good all over the world !!!

Dar Najat is a fabulous riad! It is beautifully decorated with a pretty courtyard and roof terrace, which are ideal for chilling out after a hard day's sight-seeing. Perfectly located within the medina and close to the main square. And great breakfasts!

We stayed for 4 nights and Oliver and his staff made us very welcome. As first timers in Morocco, Oliver helped us make the most of our short time with lots of useful tips. He organised our day-trip to the High Atlas Mountains, made restaurants reservations and booked the taxi transfer to and from the airport. Nothing was too much trouble.

My boyfriend and I both had such a great time at Dar Najat - we hope to return in the near future and will be recommending it to all our friends and family.

My wife and i spent four nights at the Dar Najat and Oliver and his staff were so helpful and sincere.
His riad is amazing.All his other visitors we met were of the same opinion as ourselves.
If you visit Marrekech and dont meet Oliver and his (family). I think your visit would not be complete!!! Trust me and try it.

I would recommend this place to anyone who like to come back to their hostel for a relaxing and causy evening after a long and crazy day in Marrakech.
This Riad was everything I expected, even more!
- Great roof top terrasse with lots of sunny / shady spots
- Very friendly staff to have a drink with when you feel like it. We had very interesting and funny conversations. Otherwise, very discret (like when I had to work for a conference).
- Good breakfast and dinner
- Nice ambiance and music
- They give great tips, walk you to where you have to go when you need (they make sure you don't get lost), and they also have a driver, Abdul, that drives very carefully. :)
