Sattva is one of your 4 bedrooms. It has en suite bathroom with shower. The room has a four poster bed and all the furniture has been handmade by local artisan. The walls are in a light coloured tadelakt which is a particular stucco traditionally used in Marrakech's riads. It has a firm and comfortable mattress,
Air-condition and heating.
Our riad is conveniently located in the area of Bab Doukkala, which is close to the modern quarters of Gueliz and Hivernage and also to the famous Jemaa el Fna square.
We had a delightful stay in March 2015. Ory helped pave the way to a good experience by arranging to have her favored taxi driver Ahmed pick us up at the train station (he can pick up from the airport too). Ahmed knew exactly where to take us. Jamila, the riad's housekeeper, came out to the taxi when we arrived to walk us into the medina to the riad.
The above is important because once Riad Atman is found, it is easy to find again. However, the first time search for it through narrow alleys can be intimidating.
Jamila is an excellent cook and made dinner for us. It is the best we tasted in Marakech! Ask her for her short menu.
The riad is off the main traffic corridors, so is calm and quiet. All rooms are clean and nicely decorated.
Jamina speaks Arabic and French. Her husband, who is around occasionally, speaks English.
We recommend Riad Atman without reservations.
Ory and Jamila did an amazing job making us feel at home with great tips and a really relaxed vibe.
Lovely cosy Riad in a great location.
Thanks again for making our weeks holiday fabulous
We had the most incredible time.
Ory was such a warm and natural hostess, and Jamila couldn't have been more helpful or lovely.
Our room was so comfortable and breakfast was a highlight of our holiday! Also one night we had dinner cooked by Jamila, and I think it was probably the best food we had in our week in Marrakesh!
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! :)
A lovely riad in a great part of the medina. The room was beautiful with a gorgeous en suite (though the beds were a little hard for our liking!). We were there in winter so the heating in the room was a huge plus as well as the super cosy blankets. The riad housekeeper Jamila greeted us on our arrival and made us feel very welcome as well as preparing a great breakfast in the morning. There was a slight mixup with our taxi to the airport but that was probably brought about by a bit of a language barrier and our poor french skills!
We particularly enjoyed the location - we had no problem finding the riad by ourselves but the location might be a bit tricky if its your first time in the city. We had stayed closer to the main square in Marrakech before but this brought us to a quieter and very interesting part of the city. Thank you for a lovely stay!
La experiencia ha sido perfecta. El riad es muy acogedor, perfectamente climatizado a pesar de que las temperaturas bajaban de noche en la ciudad. Jamila y su marido nos ayudaron en todo lo q necesitamos. El desayuno muy correcto. La ubicacion del riad es muy conveniente, a 15 min de la plaza y a 1 de la parada de taxis. El unico inconveniente es que el wifi se estropeó y como hubo festivos tardaron unos dias en repararlo, pero una vez que se solucionó funcionaba perfectamente y con buena velocidad.
Muchísimas gracias Ivan de escrivir de tu buena experiencia.
Por el wi-fi , lo siento mucho, pero a tenido mala suerte porque normalmente funciona muy bien. Muy contenta que a pasado una buona vacaciones al riad et nos esperamos que vas a compartir esto con tus amigos !
Entonces no adiós ... hasta luego !
We had a wonderful time staying here. It's in a great location - a bustling little market street - but it's very quiet when you're inside. Our room was pretty and well ordered. The staff there made our stay very comfortable too. The whole experience was an absolute delight. I can't think of many instances when this wouldn't be a great place to stay.

Ho iniziato l'avventura marocchina nel 2006 dopo un inverno particolarmente rigido in Inghilterra,(dove vivo quando non sono a Roma, ed ora a Marrakech o in viaggio), che mi aveva provocato un raffreddore/inflluenza dopo l'altra, Decisi di partire per un posto caldo, anche con l'idea di esplorare un possibile investimento immobiliare. Dopo 4 giorni passati a Marrakech ero guarita e mi ero anche innamorata della citta'! L'idea di acquistare un riad a Marrakech si coniugava benissimo con quella di avere un'attivita; che mi portasse via dal museo dove lavoravo part-time per raggiungere un posto caldo per almeno 3 o 4 giorni al mese giustificando tale assenze con un progetto di lavoro. Ho cosi' iniziato a cercare il posto giusto e il riad giusto (per il mio budget) , ci sono voluti quasi due anni e poi sono iniziati i lavori ( anche quelli da supervisionare tutti i mesi, ben felice di scappare da Londra!) anche i lavori sono durati parecchio e poi c'e' stata la piacevole seppur faticosa impresa di arredarlo facendo fare dagli artigiani locali ogni pezzo seguendo i miei disegni e i loro consigli. Cosi' nasce Riad (website hidden) continuo a viaggiare, dal Giappone al Nepal, al Buthan e anche mete piu' vicine ma la magia di Marrakech ha ancora il suo effetto e ci torno piu' spesso possibile.
