“Surpassed all expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2008

What a brilliant Riad! Away from the frantic hustle and bustle, in a quiet part of the Medina, Riad Zam Zam is the perfect spot to explore the wonderfully exotic Marrakech.

We spent a couple of days wandering around the souks - which are all very close to the Riad, and another couple venturing out to the Atlas mountains and to the Palmeraie area. It was so nice to be able to come back each evening to our exquisite room to shower off and then head up to the terrace to be looked after by the wonderful staff.

We had a sneaky look at the other rooms/suites and loved them. Super-stylish, they are all immaculate, having just been completely redone. Everything has a lovely fresh feeling about it - the towels, the bathrooms, sheets etc were all of the sort quality that one would normally find at a place charging two or three times as much.

This is not our first stay in a Riad in Marrakech - taking advantage of the incredibly cheap airfares, we've been out several times over the last couple of years and have stayed in some eye-wateringly expensive places. Amazing therefore that Riad Zam Zam is undoubtedly the best we've stayed in to date and we won't bother going anywhere else on our next visits.

Highly recommended.

Wow!! Just back from a 4 day break in Marrakech. This place is fantastic. My room was beautiful and the bathroom stunning. The owners are lovely and couldn't do enough to help, by the end of my stay they felt like old friends. they have just completed the build of this Riad and what an amazing job they have made of it. I loved the relaxed feel of the place and the attentive yet unobtrusive staff. It looks amazing during the day but the real treat is once the sun goes down. They have obviously concerntrated on the details and the lighting at night just transforms the space into an atmospheric delight. Can't wait to go back which is rare for me as I generally like to try different places but now i've been spoilt.

For a taste of the real Marrakech this riad is the one!
The decor (all brand new) is both tasteful and luxurious. Nothing is too much trouble for the young owners and their staff -they are so friendly and helpful. Invaluable local knowledge and advice are available at any time, taxis and trips arranged if needed.
The food is beautifully prepared and authentic - the Pomegranite and nut tart served for breakfast was to die for!!
Lovely terrace for sunbathing and meals.
Lots of lovely hot water at all times and the thickest towels ever!
We loved Marrakech and especially in this lovely setting. A truly wonderful experience.

I have just had 4 nights in the most fantastic Riad in marrakech. The Zam Zam ,the riad is excellant in every way ,the location is great, the staff are polite and nothing is to much trouble for them. The food is to die for and the bedrooms are luxurious and the beds are so comfy , the bathroom was amazing as well. The staff arranged taxis to and from restaurants and trips out and about , and I was given excellant advice for the best shops to visit , which I did, shop till you drop. I would highly recomend this Riad to anyone to stay in and hopefully I will visit agian next year with my family . Thank you Emma and Marcus and your wonderful staff for a holiday I will never forget .

I visited Zamzam Riad in late October 2008. It was wonderful: breakfast on the terrace in the sunshine; luxurious, elegant rooms; visits to the souks, medina and the Atlas mountains. The staff at the riad were helpful and the cook was excellent - amazing moroccan dishes. I plan to go again soon. Attached are some photos.

If you want to experience the real Marrakesh Riad Zamzam is the place to be. It is run by a young enthuisastic couple who have furnished it beautifully in true Moroccan style. The accommodation and fresh home cooked food were excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. They organised taxis and guides and if you want a day shopping in the Souks for the bargains you may even have your own personal shopper.
For the complete city break you could do no better.
