So we came back for the tenth time to our home away from home. This time with a group of clients. This is where you want to be, if you want homey feeling, quiet and good food! Hassan looked so well after us including some unlucky that caught the flu… Thank you! again.

This lady has a natural gift to host guests and take them to the most magic places in the medina. Also the way she hosts people is amazing making you feel really at home. Service friendly and always wanting to help and orient you. I highly recommend. Carolina

I showed up in Morocco with a room booked at Riad Zara and ended up staying for a week. The Riad is gorgeous and peaceful. Hassan cooked the best meal I had while I was in Morocco, and the fresh bread and honey for breakfast was fantastic! Monique helped me organize all my other travel in the country. She hooked...

I've been hosted at riad zara for three days during last easter period. It is a very charming and comfortable place where staying during your holidays in marrakech. Out of the crowded streets but at only 10-15 mins walking.

We stayed for 7 nights at the Zara and would go back again with no hesitation When we arrived at the airport, our personal transfer, organised beforehand by Monique, was there to take us in comfort to the Riad. Monique had organised a Moroccan lunch and refreshment on our arrival and we felt relaxed straight away. The Riad itself is... More

We stayed at Riad Zara for 4 nights. Our interaction with Monique began while we were in the US. What a host! Monique arranged for a driver to and from the airport, a guided tour of the Medina, a full day guided tour to Telouet and beyond. The Riad is lovely and Monique's assistant, Hassan, is a wonderful host (and... More

My husband, three year old daughter and I stayed here for three nights. My only regret was that we did not stay longer. Monique was not there during our stay but Hassan was and he was excellent. He made every effort to ensure that our stay was comfortable and that our needs were met. My daughter loved him and in... More

If you want to experience the real Morocco from a clean, calm and comfortable basis - this place is excellent. It's situated a few minutes away from the souks. Navigating the busy little streets and alley ways at night takes practise but Monique, the riad's owner, is always at hand and happy to help. An amazing French hostess who tells... More

I had such a great time at Riad Zara!! Monique organised my transport from the airport to the riad and the driver was very nice and professional. Complimentary Mint tea on arrival was so welcoming!

I've been coming back to Riad Zara and Monique, the host, for 10 years now, and for a reason. This place is soothing for my soul. The colors, materials and decorations is genuinely Morocco. Plain pretty. Zara is located in Quartier Ailen in the medina, here you'll find the charming busy tiny street moroccan daily life. And the friendly hearted... More
