We stayed at this Riad for four nights in September 2011 and loved our time here. We were picked up at the airport as arranged and taken to the Riad by the very helpful Mohammed. Our room was beautifully presented, clean and a real Moroccan flavour to the decor. The location is fabulous. Right in the middle of the Medina but like a quiet oasis. Close to the square and the lovely Bahia Palace. Staff could not have been more helpful. Mohammed even offered his laptop to my 6yo daughter so she could watch DVD's. We enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning on the roof terrace. It was always fresh and presented beautifully and we all liked sitting amongst the plants. We highly recommend this Riad and would happily revisit.

We booked a triple room at the Riad Zayane Atlas for our three night stay in Marrakech.
It was a bit unclear on travel websites what the difference was between the different triple rooms, but eventually we found out that the rooms were basically the same but different colours.

The location is excellent, it is less than a five minute walk from the central square, but is quiet and relaxing. Although I had no problem walking around the area at night, my sister said she felt a little uneasy, but I think it was just blind fear. The area does seem to be very safe and I don't think there would be a problem. Everyone at the hotel and around the hotel was very friendly.

I recommend you get a hotel transfer from the airport (or where ever you are arriving in Marrakech). Mohammed picked us up from the airport for only 100 Dirhams for the three of us. This is a great deal as even taking public transit would have cost almost the same. Also, it would be near impossible to find the Riad on your own.

The breakfast was good. Basic bread dishes served with honey and other condiments. Somewhat basic but the fresh orange juice was a real treat, they must grow a lot of oranges as there were dozens of stalls in the square selling fresh orange juice. The first morning after we arrived we slept until after 12 noon due to being tired from traveling. We didn't even expect breakfast but when we got up to the roof top terrace they were still waiting to serve us.

Our room was very nice, with clean sheets and nice towels. One morning we were going to leave town early but didn't have an alarm clock. We asked if there was any way we could get woken at 5 AM and one of the staff lent us his cell phone with an alarm set.

The Riad was well kept with an area downstairs to watch TV and relax, and a gorgeous roof top terrace that is half covered if you want to be in the shade, and half open if you want to sun bathe.

Overall the service was excellent, Mohammed went out of his way constantly to make sure every guest was taken care of. The hotel itself is great and in an excellent location. While in the area we did see a few other Riads which we learned were sometimes up to double the price. This Riad is in a great location, you couldn't ask for anything better. And at the price we paid (55 Euro a night for a triple) we couldn't have imagined a better deal.

Just a tip: Don't eat at any of those stalls in the center of the square that all the touts are trying to get you to sit at. They look like a good deal but by the end of the meal you will be paying three times what you thought you were ordering.

Just a few minutes from the main square and from the Palais Bahia. Rooms clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished. We had a very warm welcome from Larbi & Babette. The rooftop is a pleasure to sit in with plants all round, loungers and a large tent for shade and shelter. There is a real sense of calm despite being so near the hub of things - we slept very well. Highly recommended.

Lovely riad, fantastic location five minutes walk from the square. Recommend booking a transfer through the riad. Recommend excursion to Ourika valley, we booked this through the riad and I recommend taking a walk to Les Jardins Majorelle in Gueliz.
Rooms where spacious and comfortable.
Continental breakfast was nice, croissants and bread served with fresh orange juice. With this being served on the roof terrace made a good start to the day.
Staff were very friendly and helpful particularly Mohammed who was always happy to help, a very likable man with a very professional manner.

A great experience of Marrakech all round, glad we chose to stay here and intend on returning soon
