“Peaceful oasis in the heart of the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Riad Zinoun is an exceptional place run by an unusually focused and helpful team. There are so many things to love about this place - great location, stunning rooms, amazing roof top deck, generous breakfast that changes from day to day and wonderful communal facilities. But the best thing is the incredible welcome - Said is absolutely awesome, full of knowledge and always so keen and willing to provide advice, make arrangements or simply bargain on your behalf. We booked for five nights and were upgraded to a palatial room on the top floor, which offered a great bed, plenty of hot water and a very peaceful sleep. Upon leaving, Said was very happy to store the bulk of our luggage for an indeterminate period while we visited the desert, which turned out to be 10 days. Just about the best service we've had anywhere in the world and we look forward to returning!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms on the top floor are massive!

Highly recommended! I second all the other good reviews Where do I begin... The Owner is very friendly and helpful which is nice and can recommend great restaurants and hamamns. The riad itself is a has been nicely restored and some of the rooms have huge bathrooms. Great terrace with nice views of the city. Good breakfast as well. This is a nice place for small groups, couples or mature 20-30ish year olds. Also a good central location.... Check it out!

Riad is perfectly situated in the heart of medina, it's only three minutes walk to Jama el'Fna - main city square. There are several beautiful and variegated rooms. Our Superior apartment had gorgeous and large bathroom. Breakfasts were very tasteful. Hotel's owner was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Don't trust Google Maps. Real location is 31.624058, -7.9868.

We stayed at the Riad Zinoun one night and it was beautiful experience. Owner of the Riad is very nice and when we needed something he tried to help us as much as possible. We ate there dinner and breakfast and both was excelent. On dinner (couscous) we were there again some another night and even we didn't have acommodation there owner made it for us :) Riad was in good location, very near to center square Jemaa el Fna. We have very good memories from Riad Zinoun, only in future will be better some heater in rooms.
