We stayed at this riad for four nights in July and had a wonderful time. The riad is located just inside the Medina walls about a 20 minute walk from the main square, either through a covered local market or via a more open boulevard - both routes charming in their own way! The streets are noisy and bustling outside,... More

Myself and 9 girlfriends visited this Riad for 40th birthday celebrations and had such a wonderful time. The short walk to the Riad was a bit of an eye opener but as soon as you are inside the Riad is magical. We had the place to ourselves as there are only 5 bedrooms and had the option of a typical...

We stayed at Riad Zayane for five nights in January. We booked the Warda room which is on the first floor (where the majority of the bedrooms are). I would highly recommend staying here and would also recommend the Serenity package, which really took the hassle out of getting to the Riad and our first meal. The staff were all... More

We had a most enjoyable stay in this Riad, which is located just inside the Bab Boutouil – a little to the north of the larger Bab Doukkala. From the very beginning we received a friendly welcome and excellent service from Aicha, Jaouad, Bahija and the other staff. Our room was comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious, and the roof terrace... More

We have just spent an excellent week at the Riad Zayane and have nothing but praise for the quality of the accommodation (we had the Africa Room) and for the welcoming and friendly staff who were unfailingly attentive without being obtrusive. The roof terrace was a welcome oasis of calm after the bustle of the city. The food was also... More

Was not sure what to expect but the beautiful Riad right in the heart of Marrakesh was a true find. It was so great to knock on the door, go inside and leave all the buzz of the city behind. The room was beautiful, the shower a delight and the thick cotton dressing gowns and the hair dryer a great... More

We stayed in this riad for 3 nights at the end of our Moroccan trip. We had stayed in 3 or 4 other riads so had an idea of what we could expect. We had a great experience. The staff were very lovely.
