“Short break - January 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

My girlfriend & I stayed at the Riad Zayane for 3 nights. We had a very comfortable stay in this chic haven from the hustle & bustle of Marrakesh. The food was excellent, the staff welcoming & helpful and the room comfortable enough for the time spent there.

We arrived late from the UK due to snow but as we had contacted them before hand to arrange an airport transfer and an evening meal, we just let them know there were likely to be delays so they still provided a full 3 course meal when we arrived an hour and a half after their published kitchen finish time. Excellent customer service!

I also needed to change money and this was done immediately and at a good rate, something I thought may be an issue in such a small place. Not a bit of it though...helpful to the last.

There are no in room kettles but the staff always seem on hand to get you a drink. The hot chocolate is excellent!

Sadly, Marrakesh was not for us...just too intense with taxi drivers not knowing where anything was, constant hassle from people in the streets to guide us (even when we knew exactly where going) or sell us over priced tat and not taking no for an answer and the constant evasion of those stupid moped riders down every road, street, lane & footpath. However, Riad Zayane and its' excellent staff could not be faulted...thanks!

Room Tip: There are only 5 rooms to choose from. We stayed in the African room which was suitable for our need...

Very pleasantly surprised. a very safe bet for a successful hotel and not too far from all the action. might benefit from finding out how to get to the hotel before leaving the airport. great atmosphere.

My wife and I spent a week at this Riad over Christmas 2012 and had a great time.
We stayed in the Oasis room and the upgrade was worth every penny,
Everthing was very clean and the staff were first class, very helpful and friendly.
The Riad is about a 15 minute from main restaurant areas but this was compensated by the peace and quiet of the location,
It's located just off an authentic Morrocan Street market but the noise of this disappeared as you entered the Riad.
We took two taxi tours with an excellent driver, safe, friendly but not in your face all tha time.

This was the best stay I've ever had. Thanks to all the staff, you were magnificent. I would advise everyone to book the transfer from the airport directly with the hotel, I'm a good map reader but there is no way I would have ever found this hotel on my own.

We just came back from a week in Marrakech and our stay in Zayane was fantastic. One of the things I liked best were that the breakfast was so good and felt very healthy. Thanks a lot to all of you working in Zayane!

Great little place within the walls of the City. It is a bit hard to find, so book a meet and greet and not like us by getting a cab at the airport, as most of them don’t know where it is.

Food is great; rooms are in keeping with the ambience of the place. Clean, smart, safe and comfortable.

Breakfasts are healthy and appropiate for the for the Moroccan heat that awaits you.
