We spent with the family (2 adults 2 kids) a great time here in April 2014. Fatima cooks extraordinarily good food! The rooms are really charming with a nice bathroom. The location of the Riad is quite convenient too, 10 min walking from the main square. And, and don't forget to stop by the bakery close to the Riad in... More

We only stayed in marrakech for a few nights but had the most amazing stay in Riad Zara. The building was beautiful with a really friendly atmosphere and surprisingly calm even though it's so close to the old town centre. The best part of amour stay though has to be the owner, Monique. She was so welcoming and went above... More

Don´t write French so this is in English. Riat Zara is the most lovely "hotel"... I feel like home there.... both staff and the owner is like personal friends and you will get the best service. Their home cooked meals is wonderful and preferred! I love to stay there... been there twice and likely return again....

As my wife and I ventured out if Europe for the first time and into an unknown land, we were unsure of what awaited us. But we were blown away by our 3 night stay in Marrakech. The perfectly tranquil Riad Zara was a perfect contrast to the madness of the central medina. The location of the Riad was perfect.... More

From the moment we arrived, our host, Monique couldn't have done more to make our holiday in Marrakech a truly memorable experience. She greeted us with tea and pastries then gave us directions to everywhere we wanted to go. She arranged the taxi pick up at the airport, excursions and also a visit to a spa - nothing was too...

We had a lovely stay in Marrakesh in this Riad. If you're looking for a cute authentic and welcoming place to stay in the heart of the Medina don't hesitate. The Riad is beautiful, decorations are amazing and the owner does her best to provide you with an authentic Moroccan experience . The staff is super nice and if you... More

The idea of Marrakech was a bit overwhelming until I was referred to Riad Zara by a friend who had stayed here several years back. I reached out to Monique and received an immediate, very welcoming response. Monique provided details about rooms for my dates that suited me perfectly, a single male traveler. She also helped arrange a car and... More

I came across Riad Zara when browsing on Tripadvisor - the great reviews and positive comments on Monique and the place made me send an email inquiry immediately. I received a very warm response within an hour from Monique, stating availability/price and extending an invitation to share her home for the duration of my stay in Marrakech! I booked for... More

We loved our stay at this beautiful riad in the medina so much so that we extended it 2 nights! Monique who runs it is friendly, genuinely cares about you and is bi-lingual (a great plus for us English speakers). She gave us a great welcome and introduction to Marrakech that we found helpful and the places she recommended turned... More
