My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay in the Zen House last month... What an amazing property... We had an easy transfer from the airport to the Riad, truly top notch accomadations, clean, beautifully decorated room, with great ambiance.... We were able to stay in several different rooms, due to the lack of occupancy, which I know had... More

My fiance and I had a great time staying at this riad near the wall of the medina. Carla (owner) and Mourad were very accommodating, helpful and welcoming. We don't speak French or Arabic, and they helped us with spa appointments, dinner reservations, and a tour to the mountains. We'd recommend this riad!

The riad was beautiful with great attention to detail. The rooms were comfortable with huge bathrooms. The rooftop dining was wonderful and we had a great dinner served to us. The riad also arranged our driver throughout Morocco who was absolutely lovely. And they recommended a great spa in Marrakech. The outstanding cook gave us a cooking lesson. Our experinece... More

We stayed at Zen House for 5 days in October and found it to be a lovely oasis in the Medina in Marrakech. While it was too long to walk to the Square (unless you could decipher the route), it was a short taxi ride to the center. The Riad treated you like family, the rooms were lovely and the... More

Riad Zen is a beautifully furnished 3 story house in the old part of Marrakech. The bedrooms are comfortable with private baths. The food was excellent. Carla and Milhoud are wonderful hosts. They gave us many suggestions and helped us make arrangements. They both went out of their way to provide for their guests.

Carla Milhoud Mohamed and Saida went above and beyong to make us feel comfortable, welcome and they worked as a team to make us fall in love with Marrakech. The food was optional but just awesome. I liked that there was no TV and no Intrenet, it felt like pure escape in the middle of the city. The house is... More

Quiet hidden gem in the medina. Three story house with lovely sun deck. Great breakfasts and beautifully decorated rooms. Owner Carla made the experience extra special with her attention to details and service.

We had a fantastic time in Marrakech and it was mainly because Carla and the Zen House's staff went beyond the call of duty to make us feel comfortable. It started before we even landed with Carla providing tips and advice on what to bring and what to do once there. It continued with the warmth of the welcome and... More
