After several amazing stays at the sister riad Azzouna 13 - this was my first stay at Zaouia 44.
Zaouia 44 provides the same tranquility, impeccable architecture, spotless rooms and excellent service as Azzouna 13.
Mohamed and Hamid were attentive and always greeted us with big smiles. On top of that Mohamed is an amazing cook. The manager Sadik was - as always - the perfect host going above and beyond.
This riad is bigger than Azzouna 13, but still has a cosy atmosphere thanks to clever architecture. The courtyard is absolutely beautiful and the splash pool calls your name after a day of exploring Marrakech.
Thanks to warm sunny days breakfast was served on the gorgeous roof terrace every morning.
Zaouia 44 is very well situated, but I personally prefer the location of Azzouna 13 being just 5 mins from the souks and 10 mins from the big square.
The WiFi only works in the courtyard because of the thick stone in the rooms upstairs – luckily there are plenty of comfortable nooks in the courtyard where you can hang out and surf the Internet.
Whenever I stay at Sophie’s riads, I feel at home immediately. It’s a safe oasis and leaving an unlocked room is no problem.
