Spent a wonderful week here , fabulous Riyad, beautiful rooms, spacious, well decorated, freshly cooked breakfast every morning. Spent time relaxing in the central courtyard, so lovely and cool. In a great position for shopping and just enjoying the life in this fascinating city.

Spent 4 days here with a group of friends, we had a wonderful time, beautifully furnished bedrooms, great breakfast made for us every day in the dining room. Super central patio with water feature, great for relaxing and having a drink. A short walk to the main square, close to all amenities and shopping. Very good service and a great... More

We were quite worried before we arrived as we couldn't get through to them to arrange a transfer- the lines seemed dead. Thus we made our own way ( getting a little fleeced by the taxi- we later realised that you should only pay 50-100 dirhams from the airport. The taxi driver found us a barrow boy in the main... More

Review in one line: Cozy stay in perfect location! I heard or read somewhere that “riad” would translate to “little palace”, and while I’m not certain that this is true, I find it nevertheless a very fitting description for Riad Zarka. It's a small place of refuge right in the heart of the historical old city, or medina. And saying... More

Riad Zarka is a beautiful place to stay that is very well situated. However, the value of this riad is lowered by incompetency of the staff employees with horrible attitude and bad service. Our room was very dusty. As we stayed in other Riad in Marrakech during our stay and thus we can compare, we confirm that this is not... More

I stayed in Marrakech for three days with a friend, and Riad Zarka made the stay wonderful. The service is fantastic - the staff are genuinely friendly, the breakfasts are amazing! And very plentiful! We felt right at home at once, and leaving was a genuine wrench. Am already planning to come back in June with my mum and sister.... More

My friend and I ( two women in their 20s) arrived at Marrakech airport to be greeted by the Riad's representative, Aziz , and the transfer driver. My french was minimal and my friend knew a bit more than me however Aziz could understand what we were saying. We drove to the Jemaa El Fna, which is as far as... More

Riad Zarka is a classy, well maintained Riad. We booked a room with a/c which was a must. It was between 40 - 45 degrees when we stayed.... phew it was hot... The Riad was awesome and we loved it. The only problem was that there was no radio in the room. Before we left we confirmed our booking and... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Riad. I would recommend that you book airport pick up. The best of the whole stay was our host Assis, who answeared all of our questions. The location is in the middle of the Souks, I got a little scared at the beginning but then when you learn your way out, there´s no... More

our airport transfer did not turn up as confirmed. In fact, we received an email from the owner 2 days after our arrival to confirm our transfer! No apology offered. Breakfast is shocking for the price - a slice of cheap brioche and OJ. On our last day, they forgot we were leaving and we ended up paying the cleaner... More
