“Very good place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We stayed in Riad Zinoun for 2 nights and the place has been above our expectations. The personal was very friendly and helpfull. It is located closed to the croudy area, although it is very quick inside. Rooms were very clean. I would recommend this place to others visiting Marrakech

We stayed at the Riad Zinoun for two nights in November 2012. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming or accomodating, and the riad was clean, tidy, comfortable and peaceful. Nothing was too much trouble for Said - restaurant reccomendations, lessons on making moroccan tea, and so on. The riad is well located in the heart of the medina and is a great retreat from a tiring day in Marrakech. Highly reccomended.

My stay at the Riad was fabulous! I just loved the place. Very cosy, and well furnitured, the Riad is a little piece of heaven. Marrakesh was so hot and luckily, the inside of the Riad was cool which was very refreshing after spending entire afternoons at the markets. Besides, all the rooms had air conditioners. We were able to spend time away from the heat inside the Medina.
I'm looking forward to going back next summer!

In a perfect location in the center of the Medina of Marrakech, with the hospitality of Said (the owner), you can feel at home! Apart of the delicious mint tea and cookies in our arrival, all the staff is really friendly, and helpfull!
Delicious breakfasts!

We recommend!

There are 5cm gaps around the thin wooden bedroom doors around the cetral communal area. This stops none of the noise made by the owner or his many visting family members, but stops paying guests from making a sound at the owners insistance.
None of the bedroom doors lock!
The plasterwork in the bedrooms and bathrooms is cracked in many places, but the biggest problem here is the integriry of the owner.
Having 'helped' us and some of the other guest with making local purchases, and then finding out he had maked the purchases up by over SIX HUNDRED PER CENT, his attitude when challenged was one of 'this is Marrakesh, every one gets ripped off! What did you expect?'.
I suppose the alarm bells should have rung when we were asked to pay in cash amnd told we must not discuss the price we have paid with the other guests - sneaky and underhand.
Having now spent some time in Marrakech I can say there are much better places to stay at better prices, don't get ripped off here.

Great Riad, in central location, the perfect place to stay to be close to the square but also be able to get away and relax.
The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to help.
Loved the tea and cakes on arrival .. and the fruit and dates throughout the stay made it feel like you were at home.
This riad definitely made our stay in this amazing city.

I can't say enough about our experience at Zinoun Riad, the attention to our welfare while in Morocco was above and beyond any service I have experienced in even most 4 star hotels here in the states. Said, the owner, invited us into his home, heart and friends. We had the most wonderful New Years eve dinner with other guests from Italy. Probably my all time best New years. The food is phenomenal. Said, was helpful in organizing our day trip to Essaouira, he found us a Riad and we caught a ride w/ our new Italian friends. When we returned he upgraded us to his best suite and it was prepared to the nines with rose petals and wonderful ambiance. While we were gone, he even obtained tickets for our train ride to Fez calling the Riad in Fez to verify when we arrived. Being American in Morocco can be a daunting experience due to the language barrier and possibly being taken advantage of financially in the souks. On the very first day, Said sat us down and gave us the low down on everything we would need to know. I will never forget all the wonderful breakfasts spent discussing, world issues with Said and his numerous friends that stopped by. We could never have been so immersed so quickly in the culture if it were not for Zinoun riad, and Said. Thank you for the experience of a life time. Zinoun Riad goes the extra mile or kilometer to really make your stay special and handle any need you would have.
