“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

The perfect retreat away from the craziness of the Marrakech souks. We had a wonderful welcome from Abdou with traditional mint tea and a homemade map explaining the many ins and outs of Marrakech. Our bags were carried upstairs to our room (Sand room), which was beautiful and very tastefully decorated. We spent a lot of our time up on the roof terrace which provided everything you need in a busy city such as Marrakech - sun loungers, shade, magazines, cushions, and of course olives and peanuts with every chilled drink! Wine was readily available too - something we weren't expecting! And we enjoyed a lovely meal our first night of chicken tagine and Moroccan salad with cinnamon orange to finish. We decided to end our two week trip here and we're so glad we did, it continued to be just as wonderful as before. Aziz was great too, incredibly helpful despite the language barrier. We stayed in the Chocolate room the second time round which was even nicer, bigger and roomier but with the exact same good taste. Really recommend this place!

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are probably better, I imagine the room downstairs to be a little noisier. We sta...

My friend and I stayed in the Riad Nejma in late July for three nights. After discovering this little gem down winding typical Moroccan alleyways we were not disappointed. We were greeted in the friendliest manner by everyone working in the hotel, and although there were some communication barriers (little English was spoken and our French was not good!) this was not a problem. We were greeted with typical Moroccan mint tea and given a local map of the medina and ideas of what to do. We had paid for the Indian Rose room, however, because of the riad being quiet they surprised us by upgrading us at no extra cost to a more expensive room. The roof terrace was absolutely beautiful, quiet and secluded and beautifully decorated with plants and lights. Our 'Chocolate' room was also beautiful-cool because of the lovely air conditioning, and spotlessly clean with an ensuite bathroom and very comfy bed. The evening meals we were served on the roof terrace, and breakfasts, were all delicious and well cooked. The manager (who we did not meet but spoke to on the phone, and spoke good English) arranged a fantastic day trip to the Atlas mountains for us, and any minor problems we did have throughout our trip, the riad did their best to help us resolve it. We came away extremely happy and loved it so much have booked a room for my sister and her fiancé who are going in October. Our only slight niggle was that the wifi did not seem to work, and the small pool in the reception area wasn't very clean! But the good far, far outweigh any tiny bad bits!

Room Tip: The chocolate room is a perfect compromise between all of the facilities you would need (such as goo...

I said "amazing", when I enter it. After hot day walking in noisy street of Marrakesh we enter this oasis of coolness and quietness, its design like fife star hotel. Riad manger is very nice person, gave us handmade map of medina, and tell us about interesting places of Marrakesh, and even show us how to prepare real mint tea. Breakfast was so good with fresh orange juice on the nice terrace . Also they have pool it was fantastic to cool there after walking in Marrakesh. Our room ( rose room )was small, but it really nice and convenient and very clean. One more thing I liked is the place of riad, just between new Marrakesh and medina, so its easy to find it. Thanks for nice stay.

Hidden down an alley just inside the medina, Riad Nejma Lounge is a gem for couples or friends traveling to Marrakech after a good deal. Its owner speaks very good English and will offer his guidance on where to go in the medina with a lovely handmade map. The rooftop terrace is amazing for breakfast and sundowners. Loved every moment at Nejma Lounge!

This place is perfect for a stay in Marrakech. The people working there are friendly and gave us excellent advices always. Besides the nice rooms and hall, the small pool and the terrace are great plus for relaxing. An extra point is that you can have a drink there!!! By the way you could also hace dinner there and definetively it was one of the best places where we ate.

This riad is amazing! It has a lovely feel to it especially after a day walking around the medina. The staff go out of their way to make you feel at home and comfortable. Felt very safe. Make sure you try the house dinner on the rooftop. Could have stayed way longer. Thanks so much for having us. One word of warning. Make sure you know where it is. Our taxi dropped us off in the wronge place in the middle of the night. It is very easy to find once you know where to look. The guys were nice enough to come and pick us up and take us to the riad!

I stayed in Riad Nejma lounge five nights on december 2011 and never forget it.
It is a very elegant traditional riad, extreme good taste and confortable decor.The rooms are fabulous, some of them are so perfect.Easy location and close to everythings,no need taxi or guide only Abdou's hand map and his advises...
It was also fantastic all the care that The Manager Abdou took by suggesting restaurants for everyday of our stay and arranging us an unforgetable special night out. friendly and helpful, staff.everything is ok when Abdou is around.feel at home....
I would definitely return to Riad Nejma lounge.
