We just came home from a 6-night stay at Zamzam with our 11-month old daughter. We absolutely loved it! The riad is absolutely beautiful, wonderfully decorated and it is hard to believe how peaceful it actually is, being in the sligthly chaotic medina. As the other reviews say, the riad is not in the very center of the medina but close to the northern end of it and not far from the new town. I guess if you have never visited this kind of city before the first impact with the streets of the medina could be a little bit scary, however, we never felt the least bit threatened or scared, and the riad staff was always availiable to help us find our way to where we wanted to go before we had learned to orientate ourselves!
Food was delicious, although of very varying quantity - some evenings we got enough food to feed a family of 5 while other evenings it was just about enough for the two of us. Breakfast was really good. We brought food for our daughter and we could always get it heated, and hot water was always available. Great service!
I think that the greatest resource of this riad is the staff. Everyone was so helpful, we got help to organize our stay, booking tours, suggestions on where to have lunch in the medina, booking taxis, and as I already mentioned, help to find our way around in the streets around the riad. And - everyone was SO lovely with our daughter! She had the best time ever in the riad, getting everyone's attention and spending time in the kitchen with the nice ladies working there.
Overall, a wonderful experience and we'll definitely stay at Zamzam again if we ever return to Marrakech!
