“True Morrocan experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2008

For a taste of the real Marrakech this riad is the one!
The decor (all brand new) is both tasteful and luxurious. Nothing is too much trouble for the young owners and their staff -they are so friendly and helpful. Invaluable local knowledge and advice are available at any time, taxis and trips arranged if needed.
The food is beautifully prepared and authentic - the Pomegranite and nut tart served for breakfast was to die for!!
Lovely terrace for sunbathing and meals.
Lots of lovely hot water at all times and the thickest towels ever!
We loved Marrakech and especially in this lovely setting. A truly wonderful experience.

I have just had 4 nights in the most fantastic Riad in marrakech. The Zam Zam ,the riad is excellant in every way ,the location is great, the staff are polite and nothing is to much trouble for them. The food is to die for and the bedrooms are luxurious and the beds are so comfy , the bathroom was amazing as well. The staff arranged taxis to and from restaurants and trips out and about , and I was given excellant advice for the best shops to visit , which I did, shop till you drop. I would highly recomend this Riad to anyone to stay in and hopefully I will visit agian next year with my family . Thank you Emma and Marcus and your wonderful staff for a holiday I will never forget .

I visited Zamzam Riad in late October 2008. It was wonderful: breakfast on the terrace in the sunshine; luxurious, elegant rooms; visits to the souks, medina and the Atlas mountains. The staff at the riad were helpful and the cook was excellent - amazing moroccan dishes. I plan to go again soon. Attached are some photos.

If you want to experience the real Marrakesh Riad Zamzam is the place to be. It is run by a young enthuisastic couple who have furnished it beautifully in true Moroccan style. The accommodation and fresh home cooked food were excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. They organised taxis and guides and if you want a day shopping in the Souks for the bargains you may even have your own personal shopper.
For the complete city break you could do no better.
