“Amazing holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Dar Zelda is an absolutely beautiful guesthouse. The photos don't do it justice! We were upgraded on arrival as we were the only guests. The location is excellent - about 2 minutes walk from the souks. The staff were all so accommodating and helpful. The roof-top terrace and plunge pool made the perfect retreat for afternoons when the Marrakesh July heat beat us. The dinner we had at the Riad was really great (if a little more pricey than other local options) but overall Dar Zelda is excellent value for money. It is however difficult to locate so definitely opt for the airport pickup as we would have struggled to find it after our late evening flight.
Thanks so much Dar Zelda - we hope to return soon!

We had a fabulous stay at Dar zelda. Michel and his staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. The location is perfect if you want to experience being in the middle of the old medina. When you need to retreat from the intense atmosphere in the streets, this Riad has a peaceful, great terrace and spacious rooms. Definitely to recommend!

Spent 5 days, headed out to the mountains/coast and then 2 more days. Couldn't have been better. Michel and his team.. Tissam, Meryem and Alladin made us feel super welcome. They were great with the kids. Good breakfasts on the terrace, and the food that was cooked in the evening was some of the best we had in Morocco. The room that we got on our return, was, it has to be said, the most amazing room I've ever stayed in. Having travelled in over 70 countries, no small feet.

A fun, great place, with a very warm atmosphere.

Michel and his great staff make Dar Zelda a great place to call "home" now for my wife and me. Dar Zelda has so much magic, because not only is it breathtakingly beautifu decorationl(see the new decor done in December 2012), but in the great hospitality of the staff: Alladin; Meryem, Tissam and of course the best host in Marrakech, Michel!

We loved our stay! Beautiful roofterrasse, great breakfast, beautiful room. Alladin and the girl were very helpful and friendly.
Great value for money.

Only thing: You have to walk through some very small streets to get there. Make sure you know the way.

We stayed for 4 nights. the riad is nice and clean, the room was quite large and the staff was great. Mohammed picked us up at the airport and was always there when we needed something. The roof terrace was quite special. The location is perfect. Very central to everything. Overall it was very pleasant. Prices were right.

we booked one of the rooms but got downgraded to their most basic room upon arrival, which wasn't a pleasant experience, other than that it was a nice place, but the restaurant they recommended was terrible...
