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! Followed by a whole heap of practical information for my time in Marrakech/Morocco. Riad Zara is so pretty, well decorated by Monique! It felt like... More

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

I can't really recommend this place enough. It is not the type of place for people who like to feel as though they are in a protected, secluded area for the privileged. It is for those willing to experience the truth of an area and how its people live whilst still offering a wonderful level of comfort. The breakfasts at... More

We had a nice time in Zarka. Once that you are in Marrakech (Old City), you need to know that things are difficult to be found. Zarka´s staff made our trip much easier, helping us with all information that we need to know about the Old City. They received us with a delicious mint tea!!! Our room was perfect and... More

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
