“Best Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This was the most wonderful Riad ever to stay at. It is very hidden along the little maze of streets that make up part of the Medina, but they will arrange a taxi to collect you from the airport and someone will meet you and walk you to the riad whatever time of night you arrive. The Riad is beautiful and all the staff are wonderful yet Faysul is an absolute star. He makes everything so right, nothing is too much trouble and he gives you reassurance and confidence after you have been lost in the maze of souks and streets on the way back to this perfect oasis. The roof terrace is a wonderful place to eat a fantastic,healthy breakfast or to dine in the evening and enjoy one of the beautiful tagines (they also serve wine). We had a Hamman together which was truly wonderful, we went into the mountains with an excelllent guide which was the best ever part of the whole Marrakech experience. This was a place that you felt was your home while you were there and everyone looking after you was welcoming and very attentive to your every wish. Very, very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Every room was beautiful.

Just got back from staying here. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Perfect location to wander the Medina, gorgeous decor, delicious food and delightful staff . Marcus, Imane, Faysal and the gang were so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. It all added up to a fantastic week in Marrakech!

When you are walking in to the medina on your way to the riad you can smell lovely home made bread. When you get in the riad every body is warm and welcoming with big smiles on their faces wanting to make you stay fantastic.Out of all the Riads and places I have been to in different countries this Riad can offer many things.The staff would be more than happy to do as you wish!
The Riad has a lovely plunge pool for when your hot and a lovely massage lady, a terrace with sun beds and they also offer cooking classes.Moroccos heart and sole is really special and the Best!

Room Tip: Choose the king sized ones!

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.
