I honestly cannot recommend this Riad enough, from picking me up from the airport, through to dropping me off at the end of my trip, everything was made perfect by Emanuela and Paolo and their staff, which feel more like a family to which you are accepted with open arms.
The rooms are exactly as described below and on their website, what you do not get a sense of is just how accommodating the owners are, i honestly felt like no matter what my question or request, anyone would have gone above and beyond to meet my needs. For example, at around 12 am on my second day into a four day trip, i decided i would like a trip into the atlas mountains, this was arranged almost instantly for a price that was extremely competitive whilst still providing an amazing experience
The owners do have another Riad less that five mins walk away, which seems to be the main Riad of the two however, that does not detract from the beauty of Riad Dar Zahia or the experience of the stay.
Although the Riad is tucked away down a little maze of alleyways, once you are shown how to get in and out, its absolutely fine. it is well light at night which does take away the imposing feeling of the rather tall buildings, anyone i passed in this alleyway maze greeted me with a smile and a good morning/afternoon/evening. It is worth noting that the other Riad although still tucked away, would be easier to find if not using the transfer service, which i personally suggest either way as it makes the whole experience far easier.
I will literally never stay anywhere else if i return to Morocco, the location of the Riad means you a no more than a 2min walk away from one of the many starts of the other maze that is the souks.
Thank you both for an amazing stay and i hope that all the other readers take you up on the amazing experience you offer.
