“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The location is what sets this Riad apart. You are very close to the main square which is the center of everything. The Riad was easy to find you way back to also, very important in a place like Marrakech. (The owner has cards printed to remind you of directions in case you forget.) The over went out of his way for us too. The breakfast is traditional (bread and toppings) with no eggs or any meat, but a good beginning to the day. My five start rating is based on the location and price - very good value for the money. As mentioned else where, you must walk in from where the taxis drop you so I would recommend arranging transport from the airport through the Riad.

Room Tip: The room on the top floor would be tight for four people if you planned to spend much time in the ro...

What a really lovely place. Only 3 or 4 minutes from one of the worlds best known attractions Djemaa El Fna.Traditional Riad with rooftop terrace. Friendly hosts. Traditional breakfast.
We were awoken at dawn by the call to prayer from the nearby Mosques. Really really quiet place with lovely clean rooms en suite. Just great.
Very reasonable considering the location.

I am so pleased I choose Riad Zinoun for my stay in Marrakech. Its the first Riad I have stayed in. You would never think this Riad is right in the heart of the busy Medina, Its so peaceful and quiet and a good retreat to get away from the busy square when you need to. Mr Said Zinoun was very welcoming and he made me feel like it was my home. The main reason I stayed at Riad Zinoun was for the tadelakt course which is a 2000 year old ancient waterproof plaster. It has been a life changing experience completing the tadelakt course and the visit to Marrakech in general. I would like to thank mallam (master craftman) majid who is a very talented teacher and I really enjoyed and feel honoured in learning his ancient techniques. Sarra who was the translator on the course is an amazing person with her peace and love personality. She was very helpful and always at hand when I needed help or information. The food was outstanding and everyday was something different. In the warm evenings it was nice to retreat to the balcony where it was very peaceful. If you are coming to Marrakech for the first time, then you have to stay at Riad Zinoun!! Thank you

I arranged an airport transfer and the driver was waiting to collect me. He drove as close as he could to the Riad and then got someone to come and collect me - there is no way I would have found it otherwise!

The young man working there was friendly and even though I do not speak French and he didn't speak English we got by. The Riad appeared quite large so I think that there were several rooms. I was on the second floor near the dining area. My room was nicely decorated and very clean. The shower was powerful, but as I have always found in Riads there was not any hot water (usually unless you ask them to put the heater on). The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked.

As well as the bed there was a seating area. There was limited hanging space for clothes with a couple of coat hangers. Although I arrived late, only stayed one night and left after breakfast the next morning it did appear very quiet, despite how close it is to Jemaa el-Fnaa.

It possibly had the most basic breakfast in all the places that I have stayed in Morocco but for the price of the Riad I wouldn't expect more (orange juice, bread, a very small pancake, coffee, spread cheese and honey). When I come back to Marrakech I will definitely use this Riad again. I would have liked to have had more time to look round the riad. If someone wants a reasonably priced riad, with en-suite bathroom and good location I would recommend this one.

Lovely riad. Warm welcome; helpful staff and modestly priced riad. Comfortable and very Morroccan decor. An oasis of calm in a crazy city - close to the main square, and easy to get to other tourist sites.Five minutes to the Kozybar - a rooftop bar/restaurant with lovely food, where you can watch the storks nesting on the city walls.Did a day trip to the Atlas mountains, a welcome break from the the hustle of the city - and to be recommended.Good breakfasts.

. The Riad itself is beautiful and felt like a wonderful haven of tranquillity from the hustle and bustle of the City outside. On arrival, we were offered a welcome drink in the beautiful yard very helpful explanation and guide to the City with lots of useful advice on what to do and where to go our first walk (gorgeous and a "must see" destination on any we were celebrating our 25th anniversary.but room and rose petals shaped in a heart on the bed. All beautifully done and much appreciated. accompanied us to our chosen restaurant on our second night in the City, so we could not have felt better looked after anywhere a truly memorable stay at Riad Zinoun .
