We stayed in the Riad Zara in November 2012 for our honeymoon at least for about one week. I can only recommend the location. After all the excitement of our wedding we enjoyed the quiet, beautifull place and had a great romatic time.
Monique, the owner of the riad is like a good friend for all the people staying there. She also booked a rental car for us and organised a guided city tour for us. Both for a real cheap price and best quality. You can always talk to her and she can tell you a lot about the city and knwos all the good places for dinner and visit. After all she was really like a mother to us, but never intrusive. If you prefer to stay on your own, it´s no problem. We also had the best marrokan dinner at the raid.
The Riad Zara is a quit little oasis in the loud an full medina of marrakech. It has a really beautifull inner yard with a water basin an a plam tree in the middle. The rooms are sourrounding the yard on several floors and are all very beautifull. I guess monique furnished them all on her own and she did well. It really feels like an traditionall old marrokan riad. On the roof, there ist a lovely terrace with agrat view over the city where you can see all the towers of the mosques. There ist enough place for several people to enjoy romantic sunset without disturbing each other. All the furniture ist very beautifull.
The location in the city is... perfect, i can´t say anything else, it´s only a short walk to the center of the medina and also the bus-terminal can be reached by foot (or a taxi for little money) Ask monique for a city map, you will find your way easily if you follow her instructionjs. The riad is located in an really marrokan neighbourhood, and all the people on the street are very friendly. You have to except, that most of them want to sell you something or show you the way for a tip, but that´s the same everywehere in marrakech.
We really loved our time there. I can recommend the riad zara completely.
