This is a wonderful, quiet riad with a relaxed feel and great staff. Well organised airport pick up followed by a lovely welcome with tea and dates, and a mobile phone for queries. The room was a little dark but lovely, well finished with a huge bathroom. We stayed in the suite on the first floor, but saw friends rooms which were all unique and just as nice.

Room Tip: The suite has the bigger bathroom, but the other rooms are just as nice and there isn't much dif...

Let me explain: Angsana has 5 riads very close together in the Riad Zitoun area, a 10-minute walk to the Djemaa, but only one (Riad Si Said) has a restaurant, so you have to go there for meals, and another one (Riad Bab Firdaus) has the wonderful spa. Some (not Dar Zaouia) have small pools were you can wade. So if you want to just roll over from bed to table in the morning, or you want room service, ask to be lodged at Si Said. Management was very helpful at all times and there are security guards to go with you from one to the other at nights or to open the street door (we were alone at the Dar Zaouia for a couple of nights). Very clean and well appointed, but no TV in the room. We were given a mobile for our stay to call reception at Si Said in case we needed anything.

This hotel was wonderful. We never had to walk anywhere at night alone. The hotel organized a taxi to take us and wait for our return. We were walked to the taxi and an attendant was waiting for us on return to walk us back to the hotel. Breakfast was always a pleasure. Nothing was too difficult for the manager to organize for us. He suggested tours, restaurants, guides etc. and all were wonderful.

We spend 4 days in Marrakech and stayed at this lovely Riad. Thanks to the hospitality and kindness of Mohammed, Hakim and Cediq we have had a wonderfull time. We also had diner at the Riad, which was delicious. The rooms are very comfortable and the Riad is very well furnished by the owner, she knows how to rebuild an old Riad to a comfortable modern and comfortable new Riad. Besides Marrakech we also visited a part of the Atlas Mountain, together with Hakim, we visited 3 different valleys. It was great, thank you!!

This is a beautiful riad in the medina. A French architect renovated this old building and did a really good job. Rooms are really nice and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpfull. They speak english well.

Just spent a whole week at the Riad Dar Zaouia in Marrakesh. It was always a delight to retunr to after the mayhem and nosie of the medina and the souks! we had two rooms one for my sons and one for my husband and myself. The hotel had put an extra bed into the boys big room so they didnt have to share a bed! Rooms kept very clean and every thought given to your comfort- simply furnished with lovely Arabic furniture and textiles. We had a problem when the shower holder fell off but this was fixed by reception very quickly. Reception staff all very pleasant and friendly and keen to help you have agood time- night porter 'Cous Cous' wasvery keen to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and help us out with informaiton on shops and restaurants etc.
Minibar prices very expensive so visit a local supermarket to stock up on beer etc! Not many of the local restaurants serve alcohol as a matter of course. Breakhast consisted of lovely fresh bread and rools, local honey and preserves and eggs cooked any way you liked. Also fantastic freshly squeezed orange juice- beautiful! No Tv in rooms but there a large screen one in downastairs lounge room if youw ant it. Comfortable roof terrace area with tables and cushions. Other Angsana riads provide you with pool and spa facilities. We had a Hammam in the Thai Spa of the Bab Firdaus which was a real experience.... ! Worth it!
Wifi throughout the Riad.
A lovely bolthole fromthe Madness that is Marrakesh!

Room Tip: A drink taken on the terrace @sundown is a delight

Part of the Riad Angsana group, eg 3 others within 100 yards or so and you can use them for eating, sunbathing or accessing the spas/massages, and, I'm told, even switch rooms. The Dar Zaouia does breakfast (good), lunches (also good), room service but not dinner - you have to go to the nearby riads or eat out - either choice a winner. We had a suite that had its own outdoor area, great for breakfast or just chilling out. Bathroom large and the bath could be said to be a small pool - fantastic for sharing but no steps in or out, so you need to be reasonably fit. Very comfortable bed and although the riad is near "everything" the area is quiet and you should sleep well - we did, apart from 1 night when the local cats decided to have a "party" - can happen anywhere.
Reservations were very helpful but, unusually for me, wanted photo copy of credit card. Check in also smooth and receptionists throughout the week were co-operative and did their best to help. We used the riad's airport transfer for both journeys, bit expensive but it was well organised and if you are arriving early or late in the day, ensures a smooth link between airport and riad. If you do it yourself, useful to 'phone just as you are about to arrive at the public car park a few hundred yards from the riad - latter can then arrange for someone to be there to help you with luggage and direct you through the narrow streets - needed for your first time.
Would have no problems in returning to this riad or others in the group.
