Dar Zelda is an amazing place with warm welcoming staff and a very lovely & friendly owner, Michel. We were 5 women celebrating a big birthday! I came from London and the birthday girl with 3 friends in toe came later from Stockholm. I arrived at 09.50 and was already up on their excellent roof top with a glass of... More

My wife and two grown daughters and I stayed three nights at this riad in late December 2014. They arranged pick-up at the airport, and the driver was there, patiently waiting, even though we ended up clearing customs almost two hours late. After a terrifying ride through Marrakech -- I lost count of how many people we almost hit --... More

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for good location in the Medina; relaxed hosting; comfort; interesting, largely local decor; good food in house; clean and well-appointed room; pleasant fellow-guests; great roof terrace. If you want a 5 star western hotel you won't be as happy, but we got just what we hoped for. It is... More

We wanted a riad that was traditional, authentic and most importantly gay-friendly. And we were pleasantly surprised with all of these points at Riad Dar Zelda. The indoor courtyard was lovely & peaceful, the room was clean and minimalist, the bed very comfortable and the shower nice and refreshing. Breakfast consisted of fresh orange juice, tea, coffee, fresh baguettes and... More

I stayed at this Riad with three friends and it was fantastic for a short stay in Marrakesh. My friend and I stayed in the Carbone room which was beautifully lit and decorated - perhaps one of the chicest rooms I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The rooftop is lovely for relaxing on, and an unbeatable for... More

Dar Zelda is a perfect place to stay while in Marrakech. It is situated very close to many attractions- just round the corner from Ben Youseff and lots of lovely restaurants. The staff are very accommodating- Michel was very friendly and arranged for a meal on the lovely rooftop terrace one evening, and for one of the members of staff... More

We spent a week within Dar Zelda - communication was great up to our stay, Brendan confirmed our reservation a few days beforehand and organised transfers etc. After an hour of queueing at passport control in the airport, the driver did not appear to be frustrated with having to wait for us. Once we arrived near the riad, our taxi... More

Dar Zelda is just enough outside the souks to make for a relaxing respite but close enough to be in the fray in no time. Very accommodating staff including their patient driver who met me at the airport late at night due to flight delays. A great start to my Moroccan holiday. Michel even arranged a rental car for me...

Beautiful haven in a mad place, staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly . Even made sandwiches for the journey home, will go back and definitely stay there again. Nice restaurant just around the corner selling wicked cocktails and cold corona which went down a treat

Wonderful little hotel with very attentive and helpful management and staff. We loved the friendly atmosphere, the inclusive olives, water and fresh orange juice and the superb roof top terrace. Make sure to have a look at their master suite and its fantastic interior design, even if you don't stay in there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Riad Dar Zelda is a small luxury boutique hotel in magical Marrakesh. The Riad has 4 double bedrooms, 3 junior suites and one grand 19th-century luxury suite. The decor is resolutely Zen and minimalist, but respectful of the ancient Moroccan artisanship: wrought iron, silks, precious woods. Every room is refined and luxurious.Dar Zelda is ideally located in the heart of the Medina (historical city center), just next door to the Medersa Ben Youssef (a must to visit; in all the guides) and the Museum of Marrakech. The riad is 10 minutes from the celebrated Place Djemaa El Fna and 2 mn to the souks (bazaar).Dar Zelda has a discreet/competent team of workers always attentive to realize your desires.The riad has 24 hour reception and room service. Lunch, dinner or snacks can be made to order anytime. You will enjoy the small heated pool and several terraces dominating the entire Medina and the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. ... more   less
