“Easter delights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2007

We holidayed in Marrakech with some friends for the Easter break and could not have wished for a more pleasant place to stay. Arriving quite late from London it was wonderful to see Beate there to meet us as it was quite a maze to get to the riad but we soon learnt our way. Our party stayed in the Suite and the Al Ard room which were both decorated beautifully. Beate and her team were great, creating a relaxed home away from home for us. Mint tea and home cooked goodies for afternoon tea on the roof terrace was lovely. The evening meal we ordered, prepared by Malika and Faouzia, was delicious. Just loved all the roses and candles on the patio, such atmosphere. It was good to know that Mr Ali was there if we needed him too. Life certainly does not get much better than relaxing on the Riad Zina's roof terrace with good friends watching the sunset. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend!

The Riad Zina is an amazing oasis of tranquility located right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Souks of Marrakech. The Riad is beautifully restored and the rooms are amazing, especially the suite with its unique 350 year old wooden artefacts. The roof terrace, where we had breakfast and snacks, is also stunning. The staff is friendly and competent, the food excellent and the owner, Beate, is delightful.

Just coming back from a fantastic week end in marrakech at the Riad Zina. We booked the suite which is perfect if you look for a quiet place to spend time in couple. The design of the hotel was great and there was a special attention given to details. The food at the hotel was the best we had during our stay in marrakech.
For shopping, the souks are just around the corner.
I really recommend this place!

No doubt. The best hotel I've ever been. Not only because it is so charming, beautiful well managed, but also because all the people working there are si helpful.
If I come back to Marrakech I'll stay at this Riad.

The owner, Beate, and her staff made our stay in Marrakech much easier and more enjoyable. The owner and her housekeeper met our taxi and guided us back to the riad, just as well as we'd still be searching. She organised a great guide for the afternoon and kept us topped up with coffee, mint tea & pastries. We ate dinner in the riad courtyard as well and everything is authentic Moroccan cooking. The 350 year old riad is very impressive, traditionally styled, with a tranquil courtyard, sunny roof terrace and well sized rooms. We stayed in the suite which is amazing with a wood panelled roof and large skylight. Beate always replied to emails quickly, which made a change. Good website as well. Can't ask for any more really!
