Riad Dar Najat
Ranked #39 of 502 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We spent 2 nights in Riad Dar Najat upon arriving in Marrakech. The owners & staff helped us immensely, from before we arrived until after we had left. They organized an affordable airport transfer, gave us tips on where to shop & dine, helped us rent a car and Said even accompanied us to the outskirts of the city so we would not get lost on our way to our next stop, Ouarzazate.
The Riad itself was very nice. The rooms are furnished with taste & character, the terrace is a haven of piece & quiet which you will enjoy after the excitement of the medinah. The food is fantastic: besides breakfast, we ordered lunch there on the day of our arrival and we feasted on salads & lemon chicken tajine - yum! Perfect for couples, solo travellers or groups of friends.

We spent a whole week in this riad and had a wonderful time there: it is a wonderful little hotel, reataured and equipped with lovely details, beautiful rooms - everything was like promised in the internet. And the people were so nice and lovely: They really took care of us, as it was our fist time in Marrakesch. We went to an Hamam as well and as it was not so easy to find they brought us there and went to get us when we were fiished, so we really could't get lost. They helped us to ogranise good trips to Ourika Valley and to Essauira. We had several meals at the riad - it was wonderful, really good food very well prepared, gorgeous !

We had a lovely Moroccan Kefta tajine and a bottle of wine served on the rooftop in this characterful Riad.
Not cheap but well worth a visit. We arrived without a booking. The menu choice was the 'tajine of the day' so choice booking in advance is advisable. It's not difficult to find if you turn left from Rue Riad Zitoun Jdid when you see the restaurant Dejurner de Marrakech (also very good) in front of you. Then go straight on and take the first right after an archway and then follow the road round a couple of bends.

Though I didn't have the chance to stay in this cute riad, I did enjoy a fantastic first dinner in Morocco here. Each course was delicious, from the assortment of vegetable small plates to the chicken tangine. Service was impeccable and the grounds were gorgeous as well! We ate our dinner underneath the stars on the patio. My compliments to the hotel and the chef!

This was our second visit to Riad Dar Najat, the riad has recently re-opened after a full refurbishment.

We were welcomed back like old friends, the staff are so friendly, it is one of the things we loved about our stay here last time. They all spoke English and the owner Olivier was a great host, he told us all the best places to go shopping and he even showed us around the medina.

The riad itself is a 10 minute walk away from the main Jemma el Fna square, it is in a perfect location, close enough to all the action but far away from all the noise. The souks are a few minutes walk away. We had the riad organise our airport transfer and the taxi got us to within a minutes walk from the riad.

Once you are in the riad, it is a haven of tranquility, it is so peaceful inside. It is a good contrast to the hussle and bussle of the medina. The rooms are tastefully decorated with African artwork, everything in the riad is kept spotless and our room was cleaned everyday. All of the rooms are en-suite and there was hot water whenever we needed it. Clean towels were provided and the beds were very comfortable with clean linen.

There is a lovely terrace at the top of the riad, it is like having your own private little space where you can just "chill out". There is also a nice large Jacuzzi that you can relax in after a hard days shopping.

The food at the riad is delicious, when you stay here, you have to have an evening meal, the food served is traditional Moroccan, I would recommend either the kefta tagine or the chicken tagine, both were cooked to perfection. The cost of the meal is very reasonable and it comes with a variety of vegatable starters, the main meal and a dessert. The riad also has an alcohol license which is nice if you just want to have a bottle of wine in the evening.

We loved our stay here and I would say this riad is suitable for all, whether you are a young couple or a family or a group of friends, the staff will take good care of you. When we were leaving, it felt like we were part of the family, all I can say is that we will definitely be coming back to stay at this riad sometime soon.

All the stuff you read on here about this Riad is true - there is nothing I can add other than to say a great location very close to the heart of everything with a truly exceptional ambience. Great staff and excellent food .

This place really does have a pretty unique atmosphere (as referenced in the heading) which has everything to do with the people who work there … truly charming, helpful, down-to-earth folk. In fairness, everything they promise on their website is what you get so believe the hype, so to speak!

The food is really great - far better in fact than the fare offered at many of the overpriced ‘tourist trap’ restaurants around the medina. I would recommend dining there before heading out for a night-time stroll around the buzzing square, or indeed after a day touring the city or its surrounds. (Dar Najat organise tours too … all part of the service!).

It’s also really nice to be able to relax with a cold beer on the terrace and enjoy the mellow in-house music, feet dangling in the cooling Jacuzzi before, or after, a foray into the (endearing and intoxicating) madness of the Marrakesh Medina.

To summarise, a beautiful place run by genuinely kind and obliging people who cannot do enough to help make your time in Marrakesh as enjoyable, pleasant and stress-free as imaginable.
