It's hard to believe that such a beautiful restored traditional Riad - El Zohar - can be hidden amongst the lanes of the Medina in Marrakesh behind a great door in a back alley!!! It was such a pleasure to be welcomed into Alan's (the owner's) home by him personally - what a great character! He imparted a wealth of information to us over mint tea which allowed us to get the best from our short stay - and once we had settled in he personally took us and showed us the best way to get to the Souks and how to find the Riad on our return. One reason we chose Riad Zohar apart from its excellent reviews, was the fact that is well positioned for the Souks and the main square and (so we found out) great restaurants are within easy walking distance.
The Riad has five comfy and traditionally Marrakesh style bedrooms, a plunge pool in the courtyard, a stunning roof garden with many sunbeds and a traditional tented area with sofas for evening drinks - in fact the whole place is 5 star - why would anyone stay in a hotel in this city????
If you only get a chance to stay in one Riad in Marrakesh - this is the one!!!
A big thanks to Alan and all his staff who made our stay truly memorable. Hope to stay with you again!
