We had a lovely stay at the Riad Dar Zinnia. The rooms were clean and very pleasant, the highlight being the beautiful bathroom in the suite. The Riad is located on a quiet street in the Kasbah (15min by foot from the souks and 2min by foot from a swimming pool) and has a fantastic roof terrace where you can... More

Riad Dar Zinnia is in a great location, so easy to walk everywhere to experience the true Marrakesh. The house carers Asma and Ibrahim couldn't have been more welcoming. Really did enjoy our stay here.

If this is your first stop in Morocco and you need a little pampering after a long flight from the US, this is not the best place to stay. We were supposed to be picked up at the airport, flight was on time, and there was no one with our name on a sign, and yes, we can read. The... More

Flying from the US via a UK airport and experiencing a 24h delay must be tiring indeed. I suppose this explain a lot of things, the missed pre-booked airport transfer, not asking for a second pair of pillows necessary because of respiratory problems and making do with the 2 pillows and 2 throw cushions... We appreciate the time spent making... More

The Riad Dar Zinnia is in a great location to feel Marrakesh's vibrant atmosphere. It is a great place to experience, the kasbah, the souk and Asma and Ibrahim really make the stay special: the food is amazing, and they are so friendly and helpful in discovering the local culture. You needn't look any further!

My stay at Riad Dar Zinnia has been one of the most enjoyable holiday. First of all, the location is excellent (in the heart of the Kasbah). It made my stay original and authentic, being able to wander in the quiet streets and discover the friendly neighbourhood, head out to the souk at Jeema El Fna, in less than 5min... More

I have stayed here multiple times between 2007-2010 and I have to say this is one of the best places I have ever been to. The location is incredible, right in the heart of the Kasbah.

We stayed at DarZinnia for 10 days in the summer and had a wonderful time. DarZinnia is right in the heart of the Kasbah which really made us feel immersed in the local culture. Ibrahim et Asma were great hosts - welcoming, fun, friendly and last but not least amazing cooks (couscous for the win!). Highly recommend you stay there!

This was a truly memorable riad. Right in the centre of the Kasbah, Dar Zinnia offers an authentic experience. The people in the area are really friendly and the hosts were so helpful with all of our travelling and visiting needs.

Stayed here with 10 friends for my Hen Do in January, we rented the whole Riad. When we arrived at the airport we got picked up by the riad in a minibus and driven straight through the Kasbah to the riad. We were met by the Housekeepers Ibrahim and Asma on arrival. The riad is split into many different bedrooms... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Dar Zinnia. Situated in the medina, the old city of Marrakesh, this traditional riad benefits from an ideal location in an authentic district with a lively and colourful street market. Easily accessible by car, it is also the perfect starting point to visit on foot all the sites in the medina. Inside, everything contributes to rest and relaxation. Often the silence is interrupted only by birdsong unless of course you prefer a lively atmosphere with music etc. Our managers are very attentive to your wishes, while remaining very discreet. You will appreciate their help to organize excursions and various activities, and you will also enjoy Asmaà's delicious cooking with options suc as Moroccan breakfasts, half-board meals ( lunch or dinner) or her 'special' dinners (Table d'hôtes). ... more   less
