We chose Dar Najat because it is in the heart of the Medina, five minutes from the famous Jemaa el Fna. We arrived late, tired, and travel worn and crossed through the nondescript doorway into an amazing oasis of beauty, warmth, and hospitality. We were not greeted as guests but as long lost friends. There was no check in hassle, but instead we were immediately shown our room to freshen up and relax. When we were ready we were given a tour of the multilevel riad surrounding a courtyard and decorated with rich woods, beautiful African craftwork, tile, and lush plantlife. There are likely 25 pictures we took of the interior alone. We ended at the rooftop patio with views of the Medina and the most famous Marrakech Mosque, the Koutoubia. As we relaxed with our choice of drink (which includes wine and beer options), Momo graciously answered all our questions and then left us to relax peacefully. It was late but we were not rushed for the dinner we had paid for with our reservation. When we did go down to eat, the dinner was the best food we had in our time in Marrakech. Breakfast and our first mint tea was amazing. Rooms were clean and comfortable. If you want to be treated like a reservation number in a sterile hotel from some multinational hotel chain, this is not the place for you. If you want to be treated with smiles, warmth, and concern by every single employee and feel like you truly visited the heart and soul of Marrakech, you can not do better than Dar Najat.
