Family of five, we stayed here for 4 nights. We were met by Pascal who provided us with a driver at the airport - this free transfer is definitely worth it as the riad can be quite difficult to find. I have been to Marrakech before, but this second trip was made that much better by staying here. Location is... More

Our family just stayed at this delightful riad for 4 nights in Amboseli room. We received a warm welcome from Pascel and he spent time advising us on where to go and what to do. His recommendations for restaurants were just ideal - right price and tasty food. Riad Zanzibar was easy to find, central and clean. Our room was... More

I was looking for a cozy little place near the old city (Medina) which would offer use authentic Moroccan experience and Riad Zanzibar did not disappoint. It's a lovely Riad/Villa/Haweli within Medina (just a few minutes walk from all the main attractions and the big square) with a lot of period details and a lovely team (Azaddin, Mellika and Wafa,...

We arrived last minute and were looking for an alternative to our unpleasant hotel. The Riad Zanzibar has something special. It is charming, interesting and in a great location. The guests are international, the staff are very helpful, the breakfast is 20 times better than at the crappy hotel and Pascal is a lovely host. This was our first visit... More

hello, I visited Riad Zanzibar in Medina Marrakech from 10 to 17 October 2014. First of all I have to say that while arriving I had some family problems and therefore we did some unusual noise in the first night: I apologize with everyone, and especially with Pascal - our GO - who was very comprehensive indeed. The riad is... More

Great Riad within the Medina but away from the crazy crowds and square. Pascal and Asma were absolutely fantastic and super helpful throughout our stay in Morocco with our young family. The accommodation has everything you need - value for money, pool, airport transfers, great rooms & fantastic breakfast. Highly recommend this Riad. Thanks again Pascal & Asma. Hayley, Ludo,...

I came here with 4 of my girl friends in April 2013 and was so pleasantly surprised by Riad Zanzibar. Everything about it was lovely. We wanted to stay in the 'heart of Marrakech' and this place surpassed all expectations. We were within walking distance of pretty much everything we wanted to do/see (especially the souks!!!!!) Pascal was great (and... More

Lovely little Riad very relaxed and quiet and located about 5 mins walk from the square, kasbah and the mosque. We were immediately welcomed by pascal the owner and given a free upgrade to their best room. Breakfast was lovely. Would go back :)

We spent 3 nights here. Our room had a great en-suite and we had breakfast on the sunny roof terrace each morning. Our host Pascal was very helpful when we asked for his advice. We slept very well and used the sun terrace to relax. There are lots of places to eat nearby and in the big square. It was... More
