Riad Zarka is a classy, well maintained Riad. We booked a room with a/c which was a must. It was between 40 - 45 degrees when we stayed.... phew it was hot... The Riad was awesome and we loved it. The only problem was that there was no radio in the room. Before we left we confirmed our booking and transfer and everything was fine. Aziz from the hotel greeted us with a big smile and a van, he then escorted us through the markets to our hotel. We would of got totally lost without booking this transfer. The street lighting around the hotel was adeque at night time. There are always plenty of locals so no need to worry about safety too much (as long as your with a male). There is a cute little boy that lives just outside the hotel that will give you a high five at the drop of a hat. We loved Marrakech, but we felt that three nights was enough. We would of loved to travel to the mountains and maybe the coast.
We ate at the souks in the main square at night time. It's a real experience, and complete chaos, but fun none the less. There are also local deserts and spicy mint teas you can drink for next to nothing. We managed to find a place near the main square that sells beer! it took a while, but i managed to find booze pretty quickly. The Riad also sells beer and wine for a reasonable price. Just shout for Aziz and he will get you a beer from the fridge. The beer could of been a little colder, but beggars cant be choosers!.
If you are considering staying at this Riad - I wouldnt hesitate to stay with them again
