“A hidden gem”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Our already high expectations of Dar Attajmil were definitely exceeded.

The recommendation in Alastair Sawday's book on places to stay in Morocco certainly gave a good idea of what to expect (as well as very pleasant correspondence beforehand with Lucrezia, the owner - unfortunately absent abroad at the time we visited but seamlessly represented in her absence by the wonderful Ibrahim and his excellent team) but what we found was a delight.

The morning would start with a hunt for the two tortoises wandering around the downstairs courtyards (also full of trees and beatiful plants - which were very pleasant to read and drink mint tea under whilst sheltering from the heat of the day) before then heading upstairs for breakfast on the wonderful roof terrace with excellent views of the surrounding rooftops, the Koutoubia minaret as well as the far off mountains. An evening drink and dinner on the same terrace was also equally pleasant. A haven of peace and tranquility from the bustling Medina alleyways outside. 2 nights there were all too short.

The only slightly (very slightly) negative comment was that we slept in a suite on the ground floor with a limited number of windows - we were travelling as a group of three and saving money - next time we would probably try to get a room or two higher up. That said, the suite was beautifully furnished and very spacious.

I had the pleasure of staying at the incredible Dar Attajmil for a full week and had the most incredible stay.

As soon as you step through the doors of the Riad, you are at complete ease. Such a beautiful courtyard, matched by incredibly stunning rooms. The breakfasts are huge and differ everyday. The dinners even more so, and must be had!, easily the most incredible food I had in Morocco.

The staff are so attentive and friendly and are there to help with whatever you need. A real family feel.

The hammam on the terrace is stunning, warming and relaxing. Fatima's gommage (scrub) and massage are out of the world. You wont ever feel this clean or relaxed again!

I also took part in their cooking course which is highly recommended. After shopping for local produce in the market with the cook, and getting a glimpse into real moroccan life, you spend the morning learning exactly how to make the moroccan dish of your choice, and then eating it all up for lunch! I can wait to try this at home.

Location is fantastic, a few minutes walk from the main square Djamaa El Fna. ..and after some time here and walking the fascinating lively hectic streets of the medina, you'll be delighted to restup here.

Can't recommend it enough, I'll definitely be back!

This Riad has an excellent location, right in the medina and a five minute walk from the main square. The staff are wonderful, cordial and helpful, the rooms are not very spacious but very clean and beautifully decorated and there are plenty of small tea rooms and lounges to hang out in ... including the beautiful roof top terrace. The bathroom is big with a nice shower.
The breakfast on the terrace is amazing.... we also had two lunches and a dinner which were excellent!

My friend and I stayed at the Dar Attajmil in February for 3 nights. Like everyone said, the place is lovely and charming. It was a bit cold in the common courtyard but they have heated lamps making it all cozy. I think most dar and riads do not have heat so FYI if you're easily cold. They have plenty of thick blankets keeping you warm. We stayed in the small room with 2 beds on the second floor. It was cute but we didn't realize that there wasn't a door to the bathroom (just a curtain). Something you'll have to figure out with your companion when you really have to use it! Not sure what the other rooms are like.

We were spoiled when we had breakfast on the roof deck. It was simply amazing. If we ate like that every day we would have gained at least 5kgs. Nevertheless, we didn't mind all the different pastries and fruits. And yes, mint tea was made to perfection!

Lastly, we wanted to thank Hassan for his courteous service and awesomeness. He gave us great recommendations, served us unlimited mint teas and cookies, and shared his life experience with us.

Spent 2 nights in this Riad this month and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Marrakech.

From the minute we booked the communication was excellent, upon arrival the staff were very helpful and informative. The room was clean and the hotel was very well maintained with a beautiful decor. The riad is a welcome break from the hustle of the city and once through the hotel door the noise of the street goes and you are able to comfortably relax. We only had breakfast and not evening dinner but this was nice both mornings.

Overall well worth a visit and would highly recommend!

Just back from being treated like long lost beloved family at Riad Dar Attajmil. The accommodation itself was gorgeous, comfortable, immaculately clean and extremely well located. But, it was the incredible hospitality and amazingly delicious, freshly prepared bespoke meals that made my stay so wonderful and left me craving to return as soon as possible. Stay here. You will be so glad you did.

Spent 3 nights at the Riad Dar Attajmil in February 2013 when visiting Marrakech for the first time. The Riad was mentioned in my guide book and I liked the reviews I saw here. In addition to that, communication was particularly good from the moment that I booked the room online, which was very reassuring and also helpful. After a hiccup with the pre-arranged transport from the airport to the Riad on arrival, which the owner dealt with swiftly and professionally, my friend and I enjoyed our stay at Riad Dar Attajmil tremendously. I found it useful that my friend also speaks fluent French a couple of times, even more so generally during our time in Morocco.

We stayed in the beautifully furnished Tea Room, which was very spacious and comfortable. Although I'm sure the Riad is perfectly secure, the safe in the cupboard was reassuring and while we didn't need to use the air conditioning in the room, the little heater in the shower room was nice to have especially on those days when we got up early and a chill was still in the air.

We enjoyed a fabulous vegetarian dinner at the Riad on our first night and breakfast on the roof terrace every day during our stay. In fact, we enjoyed the calm atmosphere and hospitality of the staff so much that we even returned a few days after we had checked-out with a couple of friends in tow. We were made to feel very welcome and I have no hesitation in recommending this well located Riad.
