“Tranquility and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

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.

This Riad was beyond our expectations. It is situated perfectly in the city so you get a true feel of being with the local people yet close enough to walk to the souks. The structure and architectural features are impressive and very well done with great detail. Simply yet traditionally decorated, clean, quiet and welcoming are how I can describe the facility but what made the Riad the most special place were the staff. Mohamed always greeted us with the kindest smile and always had everything we needed without hesitation, overseeing the Riad to the highest level, Sadik, the manager gave us a personal visit and spoke of the best places to go giving us good tips on maneuvering the city and we enjoyed the "Berber Whiskey" with him! Hamid, who was new during our stay, was most generous and kind, offering amazing stories of his Berber people and filled with great generosity to help in any way. Thank you all for making our time in Marrakech the absolute best! This Riad is the best!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely and each have their own special details. I don't think there is a ba...

I recently stayed at Zaouia44 with my family and enjoyed every minute of my stay.

This old riad has been stunningly restored and updated with elegance, simplicity and style, offering a truly relaxing and rewarding experience during our stay in Marrakech. The staff are courteous, helpful, and always present, whatever the hour. The rooms are stunning down to the finest detail, the beds luxuriously comfortable and very spacious.

Find out for yourself.

We have just got back from 3 days in Marrakesh. We were a large party with kids. The Riad was a haven of peace. It was calm, clean and the staff were fantastic.

And the hamam was amazing, well worth getting the whole clean and massage package.

I have been here a few times and was not willing to write a review for one reason: I wanted this place to be my best kept secret in Marrakesh! What to say about this jewel? The place was designed by the owner, a french architec with a magnificent taste. Rooms are spacious and beautiful in semplicity. The personnel is extremely kind and professional. The food is the best Moroccan cuisine I have ever had..and everything for a super fair price.
Please, don't go! it has to be MY secret heaven .

We spent a total of 4 nights at Zaouia 44 and can't wait to return. This beautiful riad really is a hidden gem amongst the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Upon arrival we had no idea what to expect - entering a small door off the street with local children playing football right outside. However once you enter Zaouia 44 it is a complete oasis of calm. You feel as though you've entered another world and the atmosphere couldn't be more relaxed. Our room was lovely - light and spacious for us and our 3 year old daughter. The staff were amazing - Mohammed, Hakim and the ladies :) They were all so helpful and took great care of us, always on hand to offer advise and recommendations. The riad only serves breakfast however dinner is available on request. We ate there once and the food was amazing. We highly recommend Zaouia 44 for your stay in Marrakech. You won't be disappointed!
