This is a great place to stay. Dar Zelda is very centrally located in the Medina and about a 10 minute walk through the shops to the “Big Square”. The Medina is a maze so it took us two days to realise how centrally located we were, it was fine once we decided to ignore the advice of local people on the streets who claim to be directing you to the “big square” but actually want you to visit their carpet shop/tannery. Be sure to get the taxi collection from the airport, otherwise the Riad might be hard to find, like I said, the Medina is complex.
The room in the Riad was lovely, and well air conditioned, which is much needed in the summer heat. The plunge pool in the court yard was a nice way to relax and the roof-top garden is spectacular. Its amazing how tranquil Dar Zelda is when just outside its walls is the hustle and bustle of the Medina.
The staff were lovely and Aladdin was particularly great. We inquired about the best way to see the Cascades (a waterfall 3 hours away) and instead of just seeing the Cascades, we saw the Cascades, the Arch, experienced a Hammam, saw Aladdins home town, and met and celebrated the end of Ramadan with Aladdin’s’ family. This definitely made the trip!
I would highly recommend Dar Zelda.
