As promised (and apologies for the delay), I felt compelled to write a review for Dar Zaman. In advance, Peter (the owner) proved very helpful, giving us ideas for our stay and arranging the taxi from the airport. Having jumped out of the taxi, I was at first slightly horrified by being approached by a local running after me, even... More

However the locals are very friendly and will direct you for a small fee! The staff in the riad are extremely helpful and the gave us a little guide into the centre... More

We had such a great time at Dar Zaman that I felt I must write a review - although I have little to add to the other reviews! This really is a place that feels like your home and an oasis of calm amidst the wonderful madness of Marrakech. We felt totally relaxed and at home from the moment Hassan... More

We recently enjoyed a great 4 day stay in Marrackesh at Dar Zaman. Without echoing all the other reveiws. Peter, Fatima and Hassam were all great and perfect hosts. On arrival at night it was a little daunting, dark and pouring with rain. We were very grateful to have Hassam show us the way to the riad and to have... More

The Riad is beautifully decorated and the staff and owner couldn't have been more helpful. As for the food? It's amazing! Truly fab!. Fatima should write a cook book as she gave us the best meals we had in Marrakesh and as the food generally was great this was no mean feat. We booked through the excellent Hip Marrakech website,...

darzaman, Owner at Riad Dar Zaman, responded to this review

The medina isn't everyone's cup of tea. This lovely guest unfortunately experienced four days of unseasonally cold temperatures and constant rain. The medina isn't pretty in the rain! Fortunately for tourists, rain is rare, and the list of unsavoury events listed above are not commonplace. In any event, don't let them become the focus of your holiday! There's a lot... More

When a friend and I decided to go to Morocco we started doing some research on the many riads in Marrakech. We spent 4 nights at Riad Dar Zaman at the end of January. The Riad was just as we expected from all the positive reviews on here. Peter, who owns the property, arranged our taxi waiting at the airport... More

The hotel is a traditional riad (around an open courtyard) in a residential area of Marrakech medina to the north of the main square (the Jma El Fna), which is about a 15 minute walk. The area was quite quiet and felt very safe, even at night. The property has been tastefully decorated using the local stone, with traditional-Moroccan-style fittings.... More
