“Wonderful Zamzam riad, with very helpful staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I stayed at Zamzam for 4 nights at the beginning of December. We were met by the wonderful staff, Faysal, who was extremely helpful throughout our stay, and Imane who suggested fantastic trips and helped us plan our days. The whole riad is stunning and authentic. On arrival our room was upgraded free of charge! The breakfast was simple and delicious (with bread, jams, fresh fruit, yogurt, fruit juice, tea/coffee, crepes, eggs). The location is slightly further out than some of the other riads we looked at, but it is situated so you get to see a realistic picture of the marrakshi way of life. I would stay here again!!!!

What can I say? This is truly an exceptional place in architecture alone, let alone the finish. The owners obviously did this through love and appreciation of Moroccan workmanship. The furnishings and lighting alone, leave you with a mouth open enough big for a Stork to fly in.

The staff are so friendly and the service cannot be faulted. You could, if desired, spend your entire time in the riad, with all it offers. Forget going to other places for a Spa, Hammam or massage, just stay herel. It also has the best cookery courses in Marrakech, much to my partner's delight and my waistline's disgust.

It is truly one of the most relaxed and luxurius boutique riads in Marrakech.

Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Beeing in Zamzam Riad for more than a week it was on of the most intense journey of our life.
Located in a very characteristic district where you can breathe the true meaning of life in Marrakech. The hospitality and care of our every smallest desire has made our stay in Zamzam an unforgettable experience. Thank you very much to Emma and Markus but also the kindness & availability of Faysal with the success of our holiday!! We brought with us the indelible memory of the dinner at the riad and an amazing afternoon spent being pampered with massages and hammam .... one thing to say .... WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON.

Situato in un quartiere molto caratteristico dove si puo respirare il vero senso della vita di Marrakech. L'ospitalita e la premura di soddisfare ogni nostro piu piccolo desiderio ha fatto del nostro soggiorno a Zamzam un esperienza indimenticabile. Grazie di cuore ad Emma e Markus ma soprattutto alla gentilezza e disponibilta di Faysal vero artefice del successo della nostra vacanza!!!! Abbiamo portato con noi anche il ricordo indelebile delle cene al riad e un sorprendente pomeriggio passato a farsi coccolare con hammam e massaggi.... unica cosa da dire.... SPERIAMO DI VEDERVI PRESTO

We arrived at Riad Zamzam after spending one night at what was supposed to be a good Western-style hotel in Ville Nouvelle. My travel companion had fallen ill from some bad food the day before, and had been vomiting the whole night. We reserved the Zamzam based on the Tripadvisor reviews and found the place after much confused wandering.
We had high expectations, but honestly we could not have been prepared for this place. From the moment we walked in, Imane (the manager) soothed our frayed nerves - and my friend instantly felt better. The riad is stunning. It truly feels like an ocean of calm amidst the chaos. The rooms are spectacular, even the standard room. The food has been scrumptious, no bad stomach here. Best of all, ALL of the staff is amazing, they will do anything you need with a genuine smile. Faisal, Imane's assistant, is wonderful. They arranged an expedition to the Atlas Mountains for us. We both experienced truly relaxing massage.
All told, this is a magical riad, and an incredible value. When we return, we will most definitely come back to Riad Zamzam

A lovely riad...with Marcus and Emma it is all about the detail....
Wonderful staff - Imane and Fayssal - who are there to take care of your every need. Great knowledge on Marrakech and the places to go.
Great breakfasts!! And the food in general is lovely.
A havre de paix in the medina....
And if you want an original wedding cake, Emma is your girl.....
Really glad we met the ZamZam family....
A great weekend getaway....

If you're interested in a stay in old Marrakech- and the opportunity to explore a more authentic version of the city, then I would highly recommend this hidden gem...
Magical experience, stunning riad and beautiful people.
