Reviewed April 4, 2014

We arrived late into Marrakech and had no idea what to expect. Having arranged a hotel transfer from the airport we were thrilled that our ride was still waiting for us. It was not super late but late enough that the airport was pretty much shut down. Once we arrived near the Riad we were met by Abdul to be walked to the Riad. Boy are we glad he met us, those alleyways are tricky! Once inside we were offered mint tea and cookies which we gladly took. There was a slight snag checking in because they did not take credit cards (I think the machine was down) and we did not have any dirhams since the ATMs at the airport were closed when we got there. Ultimately we had some Euros and paid part of our stay with that and got some money when we went out that day. But the staff was very accommodating. Breakfast was good and our rooms were nice and clean. Being American we are used to fans and air conditioning so it was warm but we still slept rather well. Our second room did have a broken shower head that caused the bathroom to be a little soaked abut we made it work because we were to tired to care that much! We stayed at the beginning and end of our trip since we went on a camel trek in between. It would have actually been nice to stay longer as I would imagine the longer you stay the more it feels like home. Oh and if they ask you if you want to arrange a tour guide your first day in town I would recommend it! We got great directions and still managed to get lost a few times!

Riad Zinoun was a wonderful place to stay in Marrakech! I traveled and stayed there with friends, and the staff was incredibly kind, friendly and accommodating. When we arrived we were greeted with mint tea and cookies, and a warm atmosphere that can only be found in sweet family-run businesses like this one. The staff also helped us organize transportation to Essaouira at the last minute, and stored our suitcases for a day after we checked out. Our room was very comfortable and quite beautiful, and the Riad itself has a lovely lobby/courtyard and rooftop. It's also located a few minute walk from the very busy Jemaa el F'na, but tucked away in a much quieter and more local street - a setup that we appreciated a lot.

Riad Zinoun was great value, so when we booked we really didn't know what to expect. On arrival we were greeted by friendly faces, mint tea and cookies. The Riad is Beautiful and traditional, In the most central location possible. 2 minute walk to Jamaa el Fna (main square). The staff couldn't have been more helpful, on arrival they spent time helping us look over the map of the city, advised us of some places to visit/restaurants etc. The room was very pretty/spacious/clean, Bed was comfortable, bathroom also with a great shower. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay in this Riad. You won't be disappointed and couldn't be in better hands than the team of staff at Riad Zinoun. Lovely lovely people, we look forward to returning soon!
Thank you, Emily & Nikos

My girlfriend and I spend a few days in Marrakech and we're very happy to have chosen Riad Zinoun. You'll find yourself in the center of the city just a one minute away from the Jemaa Al Fna and you'll feel like home inside the Riad. The workers there care very much and are soooo helpful and friendly.

They also tell you about the sights and supply you with useful information about Marrakech, so you never felt lost.

If you don't want to be in the middle of the hectic and prefer a hotel you'd better go for a hotel or riad outside of Marrakech (in Menara for example) but really I think being in the middle of the action and seeing and being part of this extraordinary culture is an absolute must!

Thank you Said and Nadira for those wonderful days

The owner, Said, greeted at the door with mint tea upon our arrival. He then spent 15 min with us going over the highlights to see in Marrakech. He was an excellent source of information. I felt like he took us into his family for the next 2 days. Both he and his wife made the stay very enjoyable. When my daughter did not feel well on day Said made her some tea which helped settle her stomach. It just appeared outside our room. The location is great. Short walk to the souks and the Jemaa el Fna square. The room was nicely decorated. The roof top chairs gave a beautiful view of Marrakech. A great stay and excellent value. I can't say enough about how much the owners service added to our visit.

I spent two nights at this beautiful riad and it was wonderful. M. Zinoun made us feel so at home - as soon as we checked in we were served Moroccan mint tea and biscotti, and we spent 20 minutes with him asking questions and going over a map of the city. The rooms are quite comfortable, and the breakfast that is included was very nice. You can relax on the terrace that overlooks the city's rooftops, or hang out in the central lobby area that is beautifully decorated. You can access wifi from your room, and everyone who works in the riad is so helpful and pleasant. Plus, it has a great location, being just a few minutes walk from Jemaa El Fna square but down a quiet street, away from the bustle. I highly recommend staying here.

It wouldn't be the most fancy place you stay in, but at the price, you should not expect super fancy. What they lack in fanciness though they make up in extremely efficient and friendly service. For example, we were one night so tired of going out, that we asked them to prepare for us a menu for 2: couscous home-made, with all the starters also home made, fit for a king and at reasonable price. Highly recommended only because of the homey, great service. Oh yes, and it is very centrally located.
