It's not an immediate find, but Riad Zayane is a great little oasis in the otherwise bustling medina. Once our taxi dropped us off outside Derb Nakhla, it was Marrakech right on - small and crowded streets with everybody trying to get a few dirhams out of the newly arrived tourists. Riad Zayane lies in one of the tiny side... More

This was my fourth visit to Marrakech, previously we have stayed in the larger chain hotels. We stayed for a week at Riad Zayane and I can say that by far this was the best and most authentic experience we have had in Morroco. From the moment we arrived the members of staff made us feel welcome, throughout our stay... More

Having just returned from a week's holiday in Marrakech, the most abiding memory is of the Riad Zayane, where you stepped out of the bustle, noise, traffic, and hassle of the city into a haven of peace. The staff were superb; they enhanced the Moroccan experience, and were a delight. Nothing was a trouble to them and we were made... More

My husband and I stayed here with another couple of friends for just 3 nights. Marrakech is much more hectic than I had expected and after each day of being harassed by desperate shop/stall holders, the quiet retreat of Riad Zayane was more than welcome. The location is a good 10 minutes walk from the main square but this also... More

Thank you to the Riad Zayane. We had a great stay, the rooms were beautifully appointed and very clean. A lovely breakfast in the delightful courtyard every day. The riad was a wonderful oasis from the hub bub of the city and I would definately recommend it. Alexander and his staff looked after us very well. Thank you.

Amazing service, attending to guests' needs in a most caring way. Rooms were beautifully decorated, very well maintained and clean. Location is convenient to both the Gueliz area (the new town) and the medina. Being in the northern end of the medina is 15-20 minute walking distance from Djema El Fna, but close to the northern end of the Souks.... More
