“Never disappoints.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

I have lost track of how many times Dar Attajmil has hosted us, perhaps now 5 or 6 times and it never disappoints. Lucretzia and her amazing staff are welcoming, friendly, helpful and so professional in an industry where things can often be slapdash. The joy of visiting Marrakech is heightened by our stay at Dar Attajmil and makes a business trip more of a pleasure visit.

We stayed for four nights in Marrakech at Dar Attajmil. My partner and I were greeted on the evening we arrived with a huge feast on the rooftop terrace at a table sprinkled with rose petals- that really set the tone for a wonderful stay! Brahim and the team looked after us so well, with fantastic breakfasts and advice on the local area. Our room was beautiful, and the air conditioning and inner courtyard helped us manage the temperature hitting well over 40 degrees during our stay. The whole place was an oasis of calm and tranquillity, right in the centre of the bustling medina. We will definitely be going back and recommending it to everyone we know!

Not knowing what expect this trip Riad Dar Attajmil provided an excellent base to explore the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The staff were attentive, helpful, and just plain great at their job. From our first meal on the rooftop terrace through to our departure, the team could not do enough for us.Excellent food, with attentive staff who encouraged us to get involved with life in Marrakech, which we were a bit nervous about after the recent events. The Riad itself is tastefully decorated and is very close to the main square where is just where you want to be. Just want to thank everyone that made our stay a memorable one, and we would thoroughly recommend Riad Dar Attajmil.

Marrakech was an unknown quantity on our latest trip. To hear some tell it, I should expect to be rushed by a swarm of beggar children, crippled women and carpet sellers as I left the airport, and followed around by them for the duration of my stay. Obviously that was not the case, but Marrakech *is* a very intense city - a lot of noise, chaos, pollution, color, exotic smells etc - everything I had hoped it would be. But walking into Dar Attajmil was like walking into another world - calm, soothing and quiet. This riad was the highlight of our 22 day journey around Italy, Morocco and Spain. From the wonderful food served in the morning, to the helpful English and French speaking staff, to the clean and comfortable rooms, it was really a great experience. Also, the wireless was extremely helpful, enabling us to cache our iPhone maps for the twisty experince of navigating the souks.

Dar Attajmil was everything we expected and more!

From the friendly welcome we received from Lucrezia and her team of staff plus her two little black cats to the fabulous service they provided throughout our stay, we have nothing but praise.

Our airport transfer to the hotel was booked directly with Lucrezia (around 5 Euro per person). Journey time was about 20 minutes and when we arrived in the town late at night, we were glad that we did otherwise we would never have found it! Ibrahim from the hotel was waiting to meet us at the taxi and led us down the maze of tiny alleyways to the hotel.

The hotel is simply stunning, a typical “Riad” with a lovely interior garden consisting of vast banana trees and lots of exotic flowers and as there are only 4 guest rooms, it feels more like your own private house instead of a hotel.

The rooms are spacious and beautiful, decked out in Moroccan rugs and ornaments and with typical brickwork and tiling. Air conditioning is provided but we preferred to leave the doors slightly ajar to get fresh air instead.

Keys to the hotel are not provided nor needed – staff are available 24/7 and you simply ring the main doorbell to be let in, regardless of the time.

The roof terrace is breathtaking – a haven of peace and tranquillity and the perfect place to relax in the late afternoon, laid on the sun lounger with a large gin and tonic, gazing at the Atlas Mountains in the distance!

Breakfast is served here each morning, lots of fresh fruit, rolls and marmalades which set us up for the day. If you request it the day before, the team will prepare a typical Moroccan, 3 course dinner which is also served out on the roof terrace. There wasn’t any “set” menu but rather, whatever is available and fresh from the market on that day. After all the hectic activity in the town centre, this is the perfect anecdote. Sitting outside on a balmy evening under a starry sky, enjoying an excellent dinner (we had mixed salads with fresh crusty bread, a tagine and fresh fruit salad with small cakes). It was just perfect!

The old town centre with the famous market is only a 10 minute walk away. It took us several attempts to find it directly but half the fun was getting lost and discovering all the tiny shops dotted along the way. Watch out at corners though for speeding mopeds and donkeys!

All in all, it was the perfect short break and we will definitely be returning.

An amazing and beautiful hotel! Lovely courtyard and roof terrace which is so quiet and relaxing with traditional Moroccan decor. We got served very tasty free lemonade when we were sat on the roof terrace once and got yummy mint tea on arrival. The room (The Tea Room) was lovely with a very nice and pretty en suite bath room (very nice shower!). However it was a bit dark inside which was fine in the evening (atmospheric!) but in the day it would have been nice to have a brighter light! Lots of air con so we were never too hot when in the room. Breakfast on the roof terrace was delicious! Moroccan pastries, yoghurt, fruit, freshly squeezed OJ and coffee or mint tea. We had lunch there one day and it was very tasty, best meal in Marrakesh although we did eat at relatively cheap places the rest of the time! We got picked up from the airport and taken to the hotel which was nice and it seemed easy to find. However, the first evening we went out and found the Jmaa el Fna easily but got pretty lost coming back! Saying that, it was easy to find when we were used to it. When we arrived we were given a very useful map of marrakech and shown some good places to visit. This was useful although we were charged for it on the bill which we werent aware of at first! Lucrezia gave us useful advice on how much we should pay for taxis and also about getting a henna tattoo (avoid the black ink!). Overall wonderful hotel and i would definitely recommend this as all our negative comments weren't major complaints and everything else was amazing!!
