We stayed at this lovely Riad for 4 nights, as a base for exploring Marrakech. We had already seen many great reviews about this place, and we weren't disappointed. The Riad is a beautiful place, hidden away amongst the tiny streets and dark passageways. The peace and quiet, the decoration and the attention to detail were all wonderful, as were... More

On my 5th visit to Marrakech, I was accompanied by my 8 year old son and husband. Conscious of the lack of enthusiasm of guests in hotels to accept the presence of children, as has sadly been our experience of hotels where guests have airs and graces about them, I specifically searched for a hotel that would be small enough...

All Marrakesh riads are not equal. Some are essentially Travelodges with a hundred rooms handily situated next to a petrol station, others are bejewelled with the many treasures of the souks leaving you unable to see the wall behind them and nursing a migraine. Riad Zahr is neither of these. It is the home of Nicolas and Jean-Rémy, who have... More

We stayed at Riad Zahr for 4 nights in April 2011. The Riad is a little off the beaten track (a 10-15 minute walk from the main square) but well worth the extra walk for the haven that you find inside. The decor is beautiful, a tasteful mix of traditional moroccan and modern. The roof-terrace, equipped with loungers, is a... More

Everything is already been written in other comments,and I can confirm all the positive remarks about the friendly hosts,the clean rooms,the lovely roofterrace etc. A few remarks: -You must take the transport offered by the Riad.It will cost you a little bit more(15 euro)but it is impossible to find the Riad on your own. Once you know the way,it is... More

We stayed at Riad Zhar at the beginning of January, and had the most fantastic holiday. The owners were really friendly and helped us to navigate our way through the alleys and markets of Marrakech. We were given a mobile phone and torch which was reassuring as initially the Riad was difficult to find, but after a couple of days... More

Very nice riad. It seems impossible to find a place so clean and quite in the narrow alleys of the medina. The building is typical of the medina, square in the middle without roof, the rooms all around with windows on the center. The owners (Jean-Rémy and Nicolas) gives all you (I think) need. Everything is very simple but nice,... More

If you're going to Marrakech and want to experience it as best as you can you're here for a treat. Riad Zahr is located in the Northern part of the Medina among private houses and mosques. If it's your first time in the red city I suggest you go for the transfer from the airport option. It costs only €15... More

What a fabulous place! We stayed at Riad Zahr for 4 nights. Nicolas and Jean Remy invite you into their fabulous home not as guests but as friends. The whole place is beautifully designed and there is real attention to detail. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the room very clean. Nothing was too much trouble if you asked, but... More
