Riad / Dar
typeRiad / Dar
Charming 4 room Riad right in the heart of old Marrakech. We loved the Dar Attajmil, for all sorts of reasons: the excellent location, the cosy feel, the attention to detail and, last but not least, the excellent price for what it has to offer.
First, the location, which being only 5 minutes away from the famous Djemaa el Fna in the Medina could not be better. Plus it has the added attraction of being situated in a quiet side street, making it a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. In fact, no cars can pass there and as you leave yours a few metres away and wonder down the small pink street to get to the Dar Attajmil, odds are that you will walk past Mustafa and Abdelatif, craftsman and fruit &vegetable seller respectively, bidding you a pleasant day.
Secondly, the wonderful cosyness of the place and lovely restoration that has combined traditional Morocco with a contemporary feel. It all brings together the colours of the Moroccan land and the bright green colour of the bananas adorning the patio, a perfect place for relaxing, as are the two lounges and library. Then, of course, there’s the wonderful upper terrace decorated with flowers, where you can admire a beautiful panoramic view of the Medina and nearby Koutoubia. It really is an ideal place to take breakfast, rest, or look at the sunset while sipping on a mint tea, or enjoying a dinner of local dishes, with Mediterranean and vegetarian influences.
