We arrived at the door of Dar Zahia after dark having followed our escort through a maze of ever narrowing streets and alleyways not quite knowing what to expect. As the heavy door was opened a gentle light from a trail of candles streamed out we and entered into the beauty and peace of the riad. With the delicate scent... More

We have been to Marrakech a few times and stayed in exquisite raids each time. Riad dar Zahia was a little smaller but did not disappoint. The Sakina suite for 3 nights was perfect. The stained glass, the warm colours of the furnishings and the antiques were all beautiful to be surrounded by. Paolo was always attentive and very helpful... More

Emanuela was v. available from the beginning. She explained us main monuments and places to visit and ensured us about safety in Marrakech. The Riad is v. beautiful, the breakfast served in the morning is delicious. After walking around the city which is very noisy, it was amazing to get back to the Riad that was so quite. Perfect place... More

Definitely an oasis of peace in the heart of the busy and chaotic Medina. After a hot day of wandering around the narrow souks and markets of the old town, bargain and tasting the delis of Marrakesh, coming back to Dar Zahia and relax in this extra fine acommodation was a priceless experience.

The Riad Dar Zahia is a wonderful place to stay. It retains the original ornate plasterwork and carvings which are equally as impressive. The Riad is small and cosy with lots of attention to detail. The three course dinner we ate on our first night could not be improved and compared favourably with top priced restaurants in the area. Breakfast... More

Wow! Riad Dar Zahia, our second Riad, was truly spectacular; 18th Century opulence was the order of the day. Although our other, first, Riad was placed higher in TA’s lists, I would say that the two are actually incomparable as they are both absolutely beautiful but in entirely different ways. Riad Dar Zahia has retained its unique 18th Century charm,... More

We in fact stayed in the sister property Riad Anjar run by the same team. We were made to feel at home and nothing was too much trouble from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Placed 5 minutes walk from the nearest road and 2-3 minutes from the edge of the souks. We took an excursion to... More

We stayed for the w/end in early March - arrived around midnight on Friday and left on Sunday afternoon. Paolo the owner could not be more helpful, meeting us from the Taxi to show us through the winding streets and alleys to his Riad.

We have just spent 5 nights at The Riad Dar Zahia, overall ,we had a very enjoyable, relaxing time. The staff were very helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. It felt like we were staying as friends at a private home rather than a hotel. Our room was very clean and beautifully decorated, although a little dark,... More
