“Peaceful Sanctuary”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

After weeks of searching for the perfect riad based in the Medina, I came across Dar Seven. It was a present to my mother to celebrate her 60th birthday and it ticked all the boxes for our family of four. Unlike other riads which go down the route of bright garish colours and in some cases ruin the traditional feel, Dar Seven has been very tastefully renovated and retained all its authentic charm. My brother and I stayed in the Brown room with the two twin beds and my parents in the Loggia Suite. We then had the benefit of the loggia connecting the two rooms, which was a lovely spot for the delicious breakfast

Hidden behind a door, nestled in the back streets of the North Medina, Dar Seven is in the perfect location. On arrival we were greeted by Rachid, and our luggage was wheeled through the narrowing streets. After a long journey (via Casblanca due to storms over Marrakech), the haven that greeted us was such a treat and we felt at home immediately. After a lovely home cooked meal and surprisingly good Moroccan wine, we retreated to our beautiful rooms.

Over the course of the three days we spent in Marrakech, Dar Seven was a home, not a hotel. We were welcomed every time we returned from our excursions hot and exhausted, with mint tea and the smiling staff. The lovely Valeria was charming and gave us some Moroccan olive oil as we left. As a family we have decided that this is not our last visit to both Marrakech and Dar Seven, we are already planning the next trip. It is very tempting to keep this magical place secret, but I will be recommending to everyone. It is heaven!

We stayed here for a few days last week. Cannot praise the staff enough. A beautiful Riad staffed by wonderful people who helped make our stay fantastic. Special praise to Matthew and Rashid for all their care and attention.

We walked from the Riad into the heart of the Souk in about 6 or 7 minutes. Some nice touches from the Riad. A personal mobile phone with the Riad's number and Rashids number pre-programmed in case you get lost. Free wifi, Air con etc

Have breakfast on the roof!
Stay in the Loggia Suite
That is all.

Room Tip: Book the Loggia Suite it was lovely

We just spent a couple of nights at Dar Seven and we had a fabulous time- I can highly recommend it. I could not think of a more perfect base in Morocco- I was traveling with my parents who adored it and we will all be returning with the rest of the family soon. The staff were warm, charming, professional and discreet. Dar Seven is a haven in an otherwise busy and bustling Morocco. The interiors and design are elegant and tasteful and the service is second to none. Dar Seven is a chic, intimate and elegant base from which to experience Morocco and the local hospitality.

While we were committed to writing a tremendous review re our stay at Dar Seven, we were clear with new manager Matthew (terrific!) that we did so begrudgingly as we so very much wanted to keep the ‘secret’ to ourselves – what if we couldn’t get in on our next trip??

We booked Dar Seven for a long weekend, based on a Conde Nast review. We had no idea what was really in store. From the emphasis on organic foods – wow! – to the warmth and hospitality that exudes in the riad from the owner herself. It is very apparent that her tender care and beautiful attention to detail is what made this experience so extraordinary. The riad is newly decorated and is truly lovely, down to the smallest detail of fresh flowers and petals placed daily, to the candlelit nights, the beautiful linens, interesting design details that have been sourced from around the world. It is a home away from home. The staff is so lovely and supportive. We had the gift of the homeowner being on premise - she was so full of life that her company was as much a highlight for us as the rest of the experience. We fell in love with new manager, Matthew’s, vision for service and healthy, sustainable, organic foods (a hard find in Marrakech). Our smallest requests were always smiled upon. And how we loved Rachid – whose kindness always went above and beyond.

We arrived in the middle of the night and while we were greeted at the airport by a driver, we were dropped some way off from the riad, where narrow streets would not permit a car. Rachid met us and rolled our luggage as we followed through winding, ever narrowing, crumbling and darkened streets. We knew we were in for an experience, but what? It was magical when the riad door opened. We truly hope you’ll get to experience the same. We didn’t want to leave.

Room Tip: The white room was our favorite!

Just left after just one night in this lovely 4 room Riad in the winding lanes of the medina of Marrakesh. The service from the manager Matthew and from Rachid and Amal was faultless, quiet, charming and extremely welcoming. It is hard to find so if arriving it would be worth arranging to be met. The team always escorts you out and provide you with a mobile to call them to escort you back. The riad itself is calm and cool in muted colours and beautifully decorated. Would be happy to visit again just for the service.
