We stayed at Riad Zolah for the first four nights of our trip to Morocco. It was just as fabulous as we expected: beautiful, quiet, great food, kind and helpful staff, and a fantastic location right in the middle of the souks, a short walk from Jmaa el Fna, and walking distance of all the main sights. Our room was lovely, and the fireplace was great on chilly December nights. And the whole place just smells really good - I mean, so good that we're still talking about how good, and how we wish we'd asked them how they got it to smell that way. The last night of our stay, we were too tired to go out for food, and at the last minute they prepared a meal for us, which we ate in the lovely courtyard. They sent someone out to buy our bus tickets to Essaouira and didn't charge us for it. The free transfers from the airport / to the bus station were also very welcome, and we loved the in-room wi-fi. I can't wait to go back again.
The only negative (and negative seems too strong a word) is that we asked for a recommendation for dinner and they reserved a table for us at a strange touristy pleasure palace restaurant extravaganza right near Jmaa el Fna. I think they think this is the kind of place tourists want to eat, but it isn't - at least, we didn't. We walked past another place they recommended and it didn't seem our style at all either. So just bear that in mind when they make recommendations about eating out, and do your own research if you'd like somewhere less touristy.
