“Fabulous Riad WONDERFUL staff, lovely little oasis in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Faisal was the first person who greeted us when we arrived at the Riad and what a LEGEND! Nothing is too much trouble, very informative and just an all round lovely guy.

The rooms are lovely, clean, quiet and have all the mod cons you could wish for.

The food. Eat AT LEAST ONCE at the Riad! Traditional Morrocan food at its best. We had lunch and kicked oursleves for not having had dinner there the night before!

Make sure you get them to pick you up from the airport or meet you as it is hard to find at first.

We also had a massage while there. WONDERFUL! Would go back in a heart beat.

Stay here. its lovely!

We have just returned from a lovely stay at Riad Zamzam ... Beautiful Riad , lovely ambiance, extremely helpful and thoughtful staff... Our room was clean and pretty and the overall appearance of the Riad was so lovely... The staff and owner were extremely helpful and knowledgable ... Breakfast and dinner in the courtyard and roof terrace were wonderful and we felt quite spoiled...
I would highly recommend Riad ZamZam to anyone looking for a Riad experience in Marrakech.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely .. Choice of room would be by price point

We stayed 4 nights at Zamzam Riad and it was lovely. The service we received from to staff was excellent, very attentive without being intrusive. The rooms and the Riad itself are gorgeous with every detail thought through from bath robes in the rooms to straw hats on the sun terrace.
I would recommend the taxi from the airport to be arranged by the Riad, it is not easy to find (but that's part of its charm)
I would also recommend the Hamman at the Riad which Imane wil be happy to arrange, it was a different and enjoyable experience.
If you've not visited Marrakech before I would suggest a guide on day one is a good idea, they are very helpfully and knowledgeable. Do, however, expect to be taken to some places en route where there may be some 'palm greasing' going on where you I'll be encouraged to part with your hard earned cash!
One word of warning, the distance from Zamzam to the Square is a fair walk and quite tiring in the heat, choose your footwear wisely!
All in all a wonderfull place to stay and experience.

Excellent service, sympathetic renovation, ethical ecological policies and a unique atmospheric location is a must for any type of visit to Marrakech. I cannot praise this Riad highly enough.
All facilities you would expect from a first class hotel and the food is excellent.

Room Tip: Berber room can be highly recommended.

An absolutely beautiful riad with top-notch and friendly service, wonderful fresh-prepared food, and luxurious spaces. Travelled with a group of students and teachers on a school trip; only complaint is we didn't stay long enough! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a memorable experience in the heart of Marrakech. Staff was more than accommodating at all times and incredibly helpful. Spa services were delightful: hammam, massage, and reflexology for me. Rooms and interior were immaculate and cleaned thoroughly each day. Rooftop terrace provides great view of surroundings. A wonderful experience, we all want to go back!

We stayed in March for a couple of nights. Zamzam welcomed us very well and the staff was always ready to help us and satisfy our wishes. The Hammam was great. The rooms were so clean and well decorated. The food was the best food we had in Marrakech.
