“beautiful riad, perfect ospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

In the heart of the medina, a splendid riad. as an oasis in the desert.
Great atmosphere, beautiful rooms, beautiful place. The owner, Marcus and the guy who helps him, Faysal offer a spectacular hospitality,they are very kind and very nice.
Excellent home-made breakfast, delicious dinner.
Definitely to come back and recommend to all

Booked to stay 4 nights and extended to a week. Riad is located 15-20 min walk from main square but great as its away from hustle and bustle.

Staff were great; led by Imane who was always approachable and was able to help organize day trips, suggestions on food and shopping, chefs cooked great food (no tagine in Marrakech was better) and Aziz was always around to help out especially when we got lost in the mazy walks. Don't think Marcus and Emma will be able to find a replacement for the team they have put together at the Riad!

We were upgraded to the biggest room, nicely decorated and very traditional feel to the rooms with a nice terrace to have dinner on and enjoy the atmosphere of Marrakech in the evenings.

If you don't mind a little hike from the busy souks, Riad Zamzam is a fantastic place to stay.

Riad Zam Zam is a real find; it's absolutely beautiful, secluded, peaceful, luxurious, yet very friendly. I was working in Marrakech for a week. The staff were incredibly helpful with things like local phone cards and cars, the food was lovely, served at all hours as we needed it, so it felt like coming home to a little haven to relax after the hectic work. I too loved my marble bathroom with vaulted ceiling and lanterns from the souk, the gorgeous bedspreads and the beautiful carpets, and the little pool sprinkled with rose petals.

Room Tip: If you're not muslim and want to sleep through the muezzin, maybe pick a room downstairs

Many thanks to the team at the Riad Zam Zam for making our weekend break perfect. The riad is truly beautiful and the team there couldn't do enough to ensure we had a lovely stay. The room was lovely, and we can't wait to come back and try a different one. We couldn't have asked for more, a little piece of paradise inside the medina.

Stayed at the Zamzam for a week recently on a very busy business trip. Place is beautiful, staff incredible, and we really couldn't have asked for more. It really was like staying with family, except that it was so luxorious and comfortable. I had a room with a special Moroccan marble rainshower ... divine!

We stayed at the Zamzam Riad with two young children after Easter holidays. As many reviewers have said, the property is beautiful and the connected rooms on the second floor were perfect for our family. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful in arranging tours and anticipating our needs. The first night, they prepared a delicious dinner for us in the courtyard which helped to ease us in to the hustle and bustle of the trip. The riad is a bit hard to find and we did encounter the young boys trying to guide us for money, which was a bit intimidating for our children. We really appreciated coming back to the hotel after a long day in the hot, hot sun. One thing is that I may have misread the riad information, but I thought it was advertised as having a pool. While there is a pool in the main courtyard, it is freezing cold, tiny, and filled with flowers, so not ideal for our children.

We just came back from a 3-day visit to Marrakech. The stay in Riad Zamzam was perfect! The rooms and courtyard are like a fairytale and the staff is superb. The suggestions and arrangements made by hotel managers Faisal and Imame made our visit to Marrakech unforgettable.

The Riad is a well hidden secret in the northern part of the medina and a complete surprise compared to the busy streets and markets.
