My husband and I have recently returned from a weeks stay at the Riad Zayane. Nothing but praise for this very friendly hotel.
A total of five rooms, all of excellent standard (we had a sneaky peak into all of the rooms as we were the only guests on our first night). We booked a taxi pick up from the airport and an evening meal on our first night. The taxi driver was friendly and very knowledgeable and carried our suitcase to the Riad for us. We would never have found the place if it wasn't for him. We were greeted with mint tea as we checked in and the evening meal was exceptional so much so we ate in the hotel twice more during our visit.
It is in a central location, and is easy to get to on foot from any of the tourist attractions. The European part of Marrakech and to the Medinah are easy to find using the maps that the hotel provides. The hardest part is remembering how many streets you have to walk up to turn right to find the Riad, but the hotel have business cards which they leave in your room to carry with you with all their details and a little map on the back to make sure you don't get lost. They have thought of everything.
The courtyard is well furnished with plenty of relaxing space, and a small plunge pool. The rooftop is well equip with settees, chairs and sun loungers. There are a few umbrellas that will provide some shade for those looking to stay out in the sun. They even provide towels and sunhats for your protection on the roof. The photographs don't do it justice.
The hotel arranged some trips for us and they worked out cheaper than booking through agents before hand and even the street hawkers selling trips to the tourists. We had the same taxi driver for our trips (over the Atlas mountains and to the Beach), and I am pleased to say he was a very friendly and competent driver. He refused our offers of tips (except the last one when he took us back to the airport).
Alexander the owner and the rest of the staff were very friendly, spoke several languages to cater for all their clientele. We wanted for nothing while we were there, and when we go back to Marrakech again, we will definitely return to the Riad Zayane.
