Riad Dar Zinnia

Reviewed December 4, 2013

My stay at Riad Dar Zinnia has been one of the most enjoyable holiday.
First of all, the location is excellent (in the heart of the Kasbah). It made my stay original and authentic, being able to wander in the quiet streets and discover the friendly neighbourhood, head out to the souk at Jeema El Fna, in less than 5min or enjoy a relaxing evening on the beautiful rooftop terrace.
The hosts were wonderfully welcoming, their help was an invaluable advantage when it came to discovering the city, bargaining for gadgets and Asma's traditional couscous was the cherry on top of a fantastic holiday.
The house is a haven of peace, perfect for couples or good friends. This was a truly typical Moroccan stay which I highly recommend, especially if it is your first time in the beautiful city of Marrakech.

Room Tip: The master bedroom has a beautiful bathroom but the second master bedroom is my favourite. The desig...

I have stayed here multiple times between 2007-2010 and I have to say this is one of the best places I have ever been to.
The location is incredible, right in the heart of the Kasbah.
If you are looking for a great Moroccan experience then this is the place for you. Walking distance to Jemaa el Fna and surrounded by cobble streets and local shops you will be right in the epicentre of this beautiful city.

I love this Riad and will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Second floor master bedroom which is quieter than the rooms looking out onto the street.

We stayed at DarZinnia for 10 days in the summer and had a wonderful time. DarZinnia is right in the heart of the Kasbah which really made us feel immersed in the local culture.

Ibrahim et Asma were great hosts - welcoming, fun, friendly and last but not least amazing cooks (couscous for the win!).

Highly recommend you stay there!

This was a truly memorable riad. Right in the centre of the Kasbah, Dar Zinnia offers an authentic experience. The people in the area are really friendly and the hosts were so helpful with all of our travelling and visiting needs.
I have stayed in quite a few places in marrak now and this was definitely the best placed and maintains a high quality of hosting.

Stayed here with 10 friends for my Hen Do in January, we rented the whole Riad.
When we arrived at the airport we got picked up by the riad in a minibus and driven straight through the Kasbah to the riad. We were met by the Housekeepers Ibrahim and Asma on arrival. The riad is split into many different bedrooms all ensuite. The housekeepers live on site so are up ebfore you making a lovely breakfast of pancakes and jams, the kasbah is situated about a 15 minute easy walk to the main Place El Fna where the markets are.
It is safe to get around and nite and we found this amazing restaurant located in an ally which had local music playing and great food. Would go back to the riad!
