“A little oasis- easy to love and hard to leave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2009

We stayed at this beautiful riad with our two daughters for four days and were very well looked after.

There are very many good things to say about our stay last week, starting with the excellent email communication from Oliver, the owner before we arrived.

Dar Najat provides a special combination of great service and comfort, making it very easy to relax. I agree with other reviews that it does feel like staying with friends- It was obvious that the staff genuinely cares about you, they make themselves available but also respect your space and privacy and that’s not easy to pull off. We never had to ask more than once for anything we wanted. Service was always friendly, fast and efficient with the staff putting themselves out for us on more than one occasion. Though seamless on the surface, I know that being able to provide this kind of guest experience actually takes hard work and great communication between the team of staff.

The location is really good- about 5-10 minutes walk from the main square but in a quiet and safe spot. The roof terrace with its new top deck is a peaceful place to spend time. There’s plenty of lush greenery around and parasols to give you shade if you want a break from the sunshine. The free Wi-Fi was a welcome bonus too.

The girls stayed in a twin room on the first floor which had higher ceilings than ours on the ground floor and therefore felt more airy. The riad is very clean and well looked after. The bathrooms have everything you need and the showers are powerful with plenty of constant hot water. Even little touches like decent quality hangers and bottled water showed good attention to detail.

We’ve returned feeling we had more than 4 days away because we relaxed so quickly and were well looked after in a special place.

We’ve been lucky to stay in a few of the best hotels in the world and Dar Najat is right there up at the top with those in terms of how well we were cared for. It’s not an easy place to leave.

We loved this Riad very much. It is decorated very traditionally and has a lovely homely feel about. There are lots of flowers and plants everywhere which is lovely. The owner, Oliver, is a great guy. A French Gentleman who has very good standards and service levels. His staff are all excellent, all whom have a great sense of fun and humour.

All the food is wonderful and extremely filling! Breakfast is healthy and filling too.

What's lovely is that the bar and food prices are not even discussed - this is because they do not overcharge. You just order, it arrives and you don't even think about what's it is costing because there is an element of trust - a rare thing these days.

You can sun bathe here without feeling guilty and there is a great jacuzzi when it gets too hot. Many places to relax in the shade too.

Music - well Oliver's taste in music by day and night is excellent! He could do with a bit of cheese from time to time in my view just to get it going sometimes - I don't think he would agree though!

All in all a fantastic Riad and close to the main square (about 10-15 min walk). Excellent location and quiet at night.

We stayed in the double bedroom on the ground floor which has a four poster and drapes and is VERY romantic. No windows but who needs windows when you have a room like that! Unusual to find a double bed that is not two singles pushed together. The Riad must be owned by a French man!

We would return.

the riad is a haven of peace in the middle of marrakech
the staff were fantastic and friendly, the service was great
the rooms were well decorated and very clean,
breakfasts were good and i would especially recommend the tagines if you were having an evening meal
its well placed for the northern and southern visitor elements in the medina
we loved it, as did other guests we spoke to. becuase its a tradional riad the rooms don't get much light from windows and so the rooms in the ground floor are quite dark, but we were on the first floor and they were fine.

I had the pleasure of staying @ Dar Najat while visiting Marrakech for the first time. I will not be able to say enough good things about my stay at this Riad.

From the moment that I arrived I was treated like family and immediately made to feel welcome. This included offering me a beverage and having the entire town laid out for me on a map and the "must see's" and "don't do's'" of a trip to Marrakech. My room, albeit a bit small was perfectly decorated, intimate and contained all that I needed. All of the rooms encircle an open-aired courtyard which adds to the intimacy and feeling of togetherness amongst you and the other guests.

Breakfast & drinks are served on the rooftop garden (and the jacuzzi!) and you always feel welcomed.

It is perfectly located within the Old City and a 5 minute walk to the center of the Medina and the Souk Markets. You can read the tour-books on what to see or do while in Marrakech, but if you are going to doing the "tourist" thing, then there is no better place to stay other than Dar Najat. This Riad has an excellent reputation within the town, and restuaranteurs and taxi-drivers alike all spoke highly of the place. I echo their sentiments and will never stay anywhere else but at Dar Najat when returning to Marrakech.

I stayed there only one night but I wanted absolutely to share this with all of you. This Riad is a little paradise, do not miss an experience in Dar Najat, staff is just great and at your disposal for any need, they will always be here to give you an advice.
The rooms are clean and the entier Riad is very well decorated, with terrasses and jacuzi, just perfect! Very well done ! I will come back.

Riad Dar Najat,Traveller's Choice 2015 by Trip Advisor. "Coolest Boutique Riad in Marrakech" is a very intimate riad with a hot tube Jacuzzi on the roof terrace, 5 minute walk away from the famous and colourful Jemaa el Fna market area, right in the heart of the Medina of Marrakesh. This romantic 4-star boutique guesthouse has been freshly renovated to offer even more comfort and elegance than before. Let our friendly staff cater to your every request, and pamper you in lush, tranquil surroundings. Stepping out the front door takes you back to a former era, with the ancient, echoing sounds of the medina, Jemaa el Fna and the hectic hubbub of Marrakech life. After a busy day of exploration and shopping in this vibrant and exotic city, you can leave it all behind by enjoying a delicious meal or drink on one of our terraces, soothing your body in our rooftop jacuzzi, or just retiring to the warm, peaceful intimacy of your quiet and well-appointed room. Riad Dar Najat is a proud member of the "Coolest Riads in Morocco" Collection and we'll be more than glad if you try our new luxury guest house in Essaouira,Riad Bab Essaouira"Dar Najat's little sister Riad" with the possibility to have a " Marrakech/Essaouira Package Deal "for our best rates.cheers!
