Riad Dar Zahia is stunning..the décor is perfect blend of old elegance and comfort. I was afraid that the picture will be better than the reality, but it is just as beautiful as the picture if not better. We do like the location of the Riad, yes it is like going into the maze to find it, but once you... More

There are two Riad Dr Zahia in Marrakech and this is the one owned and operated by Emanuela, a young Italian that speaks good English. We arrived by air and had the prearranged taxi waiting after a length process of entry customs. Emanuela met us at the entry with a man and his cart to carry our bags to the... More

When I started looking for a Riad to stay in, Dar Zahia stood out. Lovely pictures and really good reviews. But I was surprised, as having expected to be staying in Dar Zahia, that I found out we would actually be staying in it's sister hotel Riad Anjar. I thought this was a bit misleading! This Riad was lovely though.... More

Snaking your way through the alleyways of the historic old town you cannot imagine what you will soon discover . Behind a single door in the wall is a corridor lined with photos leading to a wonderful courtyard garden . At each end small lounges are tucked away in nooks. In the centre tables dressed beautifully and with fresh flowers... More

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. Paolo and rest of the staff were... More

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
