This is the second time I have hired the whole Riad. Peter, Hassan and the team are first class hosts who helped us in a great time of need. The Riad’s rooms are all still beautifully kept, traditional and modern. Central , safe and delicious breakfast every morning. There is nothing the staff won’t help you with and I will always go to Dar Zaman when I’m Marrakech. Thank you Peter for everything. P

It was our first visit to Morocco and we (my husband and I) stayed for 4 nights at Riad Dar Zaman. Upon arrival we were made feel at home by Hassan, our kind and very helpful host. He picked us up from the taxi drop off point and led us through the labyrinth to the Riad, taking care that we remember the way - which was essential later on. Hassan gave us all the useful local knowledge of the place, the landmarks, good restaurants and local customs. He has taken the time to impart his knowledge about what we might need to know during our stay and he did an amazing job. Thanks to his introduction to the place, we felt we made the best of our stay and learned to navigate the town really quickly, especially the windy little roads in the souks (local market stalls). During our stay, all the staff was very helpful and always willing to assist us. On some evenings, when we came back from wandering in town, they would make delicious Moroccan tea for us. This Riad is located in Medina, very close to the souks so if you are into buying some souvenirs, you are at the right spot. Highly recommend it!

Dar Zarman is a welcome haven in the Marrakech Médina. On arrival with an easy transfer from Marrakech airport we were greeted by Hassan who’s welcome ,advice ,personal recommendations and directions really added to our stay and we felt at home straight away! Karima’s Moroccan dinner on our first night was very tasty and romantic ! A plentiful breakfast started each day ! Loved the artistic touches around the courtyard house ! My husband and I felt very welcome here ! Thank you

We have just returned from an amazing few days in Marrakesh staying at Riad Zaman I have never experienced such helpful, kind, caring and efficient staff as we did at this Riad. Hassan, Yassin, Daoud and not forgetting the young assistant (who laundered my dress) could never do enough for you. I have travelled all over the world, but very rarely is such hospitality matched.. A Riad is a traditional Moroccan house with an interior courtyard. Riad Zaman is situated at the end of some winding alleyways in the Medina (the old part of the city) The only reason I have not given it 5 stars is because we felt the Riad needed some updating, although it had obviously been lovingly designed when it was first renovated 12 years ago. When we arrived, we were met by Hassan from the Riad, a few streets away (you cannot take cars down the alleyways, although beware the numerous motor bikes and cycles that wind themselves around you. Hassan escorted us through the narrow alleys to the Riad and I was convinced we'd never find it on our own, but we certainly did and it is absolutely safe at night to walk there. There is a roof terrace where you enjoy breakfast or drinks (not alcohol) Don't be put off by the exteriors of the buildings - inside they are sometimes stunning. Location was very convenient, within walking distance of many of the beautiful places to visit, including The Secret Garden, the Bacha Palace and museum and the Shouk. The Yves St. Laurent museum, house and garden (designed by Majorelle) are also well worth a visit 10 minutes by car from The Medina you are transported into the modern city of Marrakesh that was first built by the French when Morocco became a Protectorate in 1912 and has since expanded, with low rise apartments and wide boulevards - with the usual shops you see on Western high streets. We would also highly recommend a day excursion to the desert and Atlas mountains. You can be picked up a few minutes walk from the Riad Staying in the Medina gave you a real flavour of the culture and history of Marrakech. Once again, a big thank you to the staff a Riad Zalman - you truly made our visit especially memorable.

Updated 11 April, 2021 During the months of lockdown in 2020 and 2021 we took the opportunity to invest in upgrades at Dar Zaman which we can't wait to share with you all: New mattresses in all rooms - we bought 27cm deep firm support hypoallergenic foam mattresses and added a 5cm memory foam topper - the result is possibly the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in! New brass wash basins and taps with polished plaster (tadelakt) surrounds have been fitted in Baignoire, Terrasse and Douiria bathrooms. New custom designed sofas, armchairs and other soft furnishings for the salons. New light fixtures and lamps have been fitted throughout the riad. Wall mounted bedside reading lights have been installed in the Baignoire room. We purchased all new Italian made Egyptian cotton bed linen. And...for breakfast...we added mashed avocado, beetroot hummus and almond nut butter (all vegan friendly and served with toasted bread) to the menu, which still includes homemade yoghurt, eggs, homemade olive tapenade, preserves, fresh bread, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, tea and coffee.  All included in the room rate! Check out our instagram feed @riaddarzaman and let us know what you think :-) Book direct with us via our own Dar Zaman website and gain an additional 10% discount, PLUS a free arrival airport transfer for a four night stay, and for a five night stay, the arrival airport transfer AND a delicious dinner the night of your arrival.

Riad Dar Zaman is located in the heart of Marrakech Medina with access down several narrow dirty alleyways, many of which have scooters with uncaring riders driving through them. Our host Hussan greeted us at the taxi drop off point and guided us through the alleyways to the Riad. We had pre-booked an evening meal which was perfectly adequate. Unfortunately the only alcohol available was Red or White wine. Our double room was acceptable but very cold, the bathroom and shower area was on the small side and freezing. We had no hot water on one occasion for showers, however this was sorted by Hussan the next day.The roof terrace was not very attractive and not the place where you would want to relax - no bar or restaurant as indicated on various travel sites. More like a laundry room. The best part about staying at Riad Dar Zaman however, was Hussan. We were greeted by Hassan upon arrival, who welcomed us and gave us an extensive in depth guide to Marrakech - where to go, what to do, what not to do etc etc. He was extremely kind to us, and a very charming.

For accurate information on Dar Zaman, please refer to our own website and instagram @riaddarzaman where you can also enjoy a 10% discount on all direct reservations.  Our restaurant is largely for in-house guests who have the opportunity to feast on Karima's delicious home cooking.  Karima makes some of the most delicious local cuisine you'll encounter in Marrakech - other reviews will attest to this.   We also offer really fun cooking classes.   We do not have a bar and do not claim to have one - but we can provide wine with dinner.  Winter nights in Marrakech are cold - the temperature drops to just above freezing. But we obviously provide heating!  In all rooms!  Two different sources!  The air conditioner blows out up to 30 degrees warm air and there is a more sedate, electric radiator that can be easily plugged in in the bathroom. Here's the catch - they only work if you switch them on!  If you can't figure out how, ask one of the lovely staff to show you! Hot water is included in the room rate!  We all know that water is a precious resource, but it's also hard to resist a long, hot shower.  Our hot water comes from several 100 litre electric tanks.  If another guest empties 100 litres on a shower just before you go for yours - it happens sometimes - it will take 20 minutes to reheat the tank. Our roof terrace has swaying palm trees, olive and citrus trees, flowering annuals, comfortable sofas and a fabulous outdoor shower...and has been the setting for weddings, birthday dinners, romantic moments, breakfasts, sunbathing and countless happy moments spent drinking mint tea while listening to the call of the muezzin.  Yes, we're eco-conscious so sometimes you might encounter our white Egyptian cotton bed linen drying in the sun. Updated 11 April, 2021 During the months of lockdown in 2020 and 2021 we took the opportunity to invest in upgrades at Dar Zaman which we can't wait to share with you all: New mattresses in all rooms - we bought 27cm deep firm support hypoallergenic foam mattresses and added a 5cm memory foam topper - the result is possibly the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in!
