“Spectacular Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

We did not stay at the Dar Seven but did enjoy a spectacular dinner there! It was arranged by email ahead of our visit and Beatrice who could not have been more helpful - even down to asking for something other than couscous or tagines. After a week in Morocco, with not a lot of variety for vegetarian food, we were longing for anything other than couscous or vegetable tagine. And boy did they deliver! We enjoyed the freshest, most delicious vegetarian meal of our time in Morocco. Their chef is amazing! Each dish was perfect! And their caring and kindness shone through when our daughter became ill as we arrived. They found her a place to lie down and did everything they could to make her comfortable. This is a special place made more special by the wonderful and caring staff. Thank you!!

Lush and refined retreat within walking distance of the medina. Owned by Italian royalty, so if its good enough for them...
Lovely staff, who, even during Rammadan, couldn't have been more helpful. Interiors are fresh and cool and bedrooms opulent and comfortable without being over the top.
Highly recommended..

When my husband & I decided to go back to Morocco (our 4th time) for a holiday after seven years, we decided that we were ready to try staying in the medina for a few days.
This would be our first time. It proved to be a challenge for me to find the best possible riad/dar to stay at and in a safe area that would not compromise our comfort level, having already experienced visiting the medina and souks in our past trips & seeing how chaotic it can become with the motorbikes,donkey carts etc.
After months of research and reviews, we chose Dar Seven. Prior to our arrival, we coordinated with Beatrice, who promptly replied to our inquiries.
We booked our own car service from Casablanca Airport which was a 2.5 hr drive to Marrakech.
Upon our arrival at the drop off point-Sidi Ben Slimane, (note: that cars are not allowed beyond this point) we were met by the dar's very gracious General Manager, Matthieu, (who was always around to check and make sure that we were well cared for during our entire stay at Dar Seven).
Our luggages were hauled in a cart thru the maze as we followed it to the dar. Upon reaching our destination, a little door opened to a very well appointed space. Everything was so perfectly in place. The warm subdued colors, the furnitures, accessories etc. It felt just like home.
We forgot that we were actually in the medina.
We greatly appreciate that nothing was cluttered and overly decorated with Moroccan flair.
It was minimal, elegant & timeless. Tastefully decorated.
We stayed at the White Suite. It was very quiet & we could not even hear any noise for the call for daily prayers. This suite had a separate staircase from the other wing where the 2 other rooms are located. One guest room is located on the ground floor.
Matthieu was always on hand to help us plan our day & he recommended a trustworthy driver, Moustapha, who we hired during our entire stay to take us around whenever and wherever we wanted to go. You can genuinely feel that the management of the dar makes sure that you are safe at all times. A plus when staying in the medina.
We were always escorted to & from the dar. Matthieu would always meet us and drop us off. He coordinated our plans with the driver.
His able assistant Amal was also very efficient. We had dinner at the dar a few times & they indulged our request for light meals & some of my Moroccan favorites. Rachid was on hand in the evenings to serve us dinner or meet and escort us back to the dar if we went out at night. Breakfast was very good and sumptuous.The Moroccan coffee has spices in it, so take it easy with this if you have a sensitive tummy to avoid stomach upset.
The dar provides its guests with a pre-programmed mobile phone for emergencies, should you decide to wander without a guide and explore the medina (though,not highly recommended) or just need someone to help you get back. It is always better to call them than to try to ask for directions from a stranger who will ask for money from you before giving you directions or showing you the way.
Upon request, they can provide a licensed tour guide to take you on a walking tour around the souks, foundouks, the medina, the Quran School , museum & the square Jemaa El Fna.
Dar Seven is a nice & quiet sanctuary to stay at in the medina. It was the perfect choice for us.

This was our first trip to Morocco....and thank goodness for Dar Seven!!! I would say the Dar Seven is a necessity!!! It's white walls and beautiful style give you a sense of pure calm once you come back from the craziness of the Medina. We were there for a heat wave and it was 10 degrees cooler inside the Riad than outside.

We stayed in the Loggia Suite and we are no strangers to beautiful hotels.....this suite doesn't disappoint!! Spacious, elegant, decorated to the very last detail with exceptional taste. If you can believe it, they actually changed the mattress for me as I have a bad back and the initial one was too hard....seriously...they changed it!!!! That's what I call dedication to guests needs!!

What really made the stay divine was the staff. Mrs. Letizia (the owner) was one of the nicest people I have met. She checked on us everyday after returning just to hear stories of our experiences of the day!! Her kindness is reflected in her staff; Rashid and all his help in the evening and watching world cup with us; the walks with Mathew in the morning answering all questions you could imagine we could ask him with nothing but a smile; Jawad, the taxi driver they recommended (highly recommend) and all the lovely women who gave us delicious breakfast and welcomed us back to the hotel every day.

To be honest, I never write reviews but I had to for Dar Seven....without it, we wouldn't have liked Morocco. The safety and the calm this hotel provided us let us know we could handle the Medina because we knew we had a sanctuary to go back to every night. Also, we are not normally social people and really like our privacy on vacation (we avoid all inclusive and tourist traps like the plague)....the personal attention, due to the delightful personalities of everyone, was soooo nice as normally we would have wanted to be left alone. But we loved their company. They were all so genuine and the beauty of the hotel was just a bonus!

It is a luxury hotel but you would be crazy not to stay at the Dar Seven! Perfect location, rooms that entice the senses, staff that you will truly miss and a memory forever. Book it...book it NOW!!!

Room Tip: Loggia Suite!

This was our first trip to Morocco. Despite being two females in our 20s we were determined to see as much of Marrakech as possible.

We spent the week travelling from East (Sahara Desert) to West (Essaouira) and ended our stay at the Dar Seven.

We were met by Matthieu who escorted us through winding roads to the Riad and warmly welcomed by fellow staff.

Leitita and the team are incredibly welcoming and helpful and would recommend Dar Seven's to anyone looking to experience the city / intense Medina yet retreat to a quiet/relaxing oasis.

Perfect stay to seal an incredible holiday!

Stayed in the Guest Room for 3 nights in early June. It was a very good experience. The room is listed as 20 sqm but in fact feels a lot larger than a regular 20sqm hotel room. Staff was very nice, helpful in organizing day trip to the mountains, and spoke good English. It is recommended to take the hotel transfer (15EUR) upon arrival since they will send a staff member to meet you at the place where your driver will drop you off. Without the meet and greet it would be almost impossible to find it, especially at night.

Dar Seven, like many of its riad counterparts involves a frantic arrival down a raft of hectic alleys to arrive, via an unassuming door (and this is where the comparison stops), into a whitewashed sanctuary of chic calm.

The contrast of the colourful hubbub of Marrakech and the stylish interiors of Dar Seven are truly extraordinary and I cannot recommend this place more highly. In priority order:

- the staff and in particular Valentina, who was an absolute delight and couldn't have been more helpful or charming
- the beautiful design of the riad itself, which was amazingly relaxing in contrast to the frenetic energy outside
- the huge bath and lovely balcony area *loggia room* which was fantastic
- yummy food - breakfast was delicious, yummy light lunches and tajines on the roof - all perfect (and I'm a foodie)
- little touches, like giving you a mobile phone with all the hotels numbers in case you get lost, to recommending delicious places to eat and advice on the best routes to get there

If you're going to Marrakech, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms were fab
