Riad Zolah is truly an exceptional riad in old Marrakech. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Marrakech and we could not have asked for a better place and better service. Khadijah and her staff treated us like we were V.I.P. for example, we were escorted throughout the souks by Riad Zolah staff to shop for doors and other items, we were escorted to restaurants that were hard to find on our own (some being 20 min walk away!), we were escorted at 11:30 at night to our taxi to catch our red-eye flight to Spain, we were provided with a cell phone and we called whenever we needed anything and I mean ANYTHING.
Our room was the largest at Riad Zolah thanks to Khadijah who upgraded us because it was our anniversary. Inside, our room had beautiful traditional Morrocan decor, which we loved and preferred over traditional European decor seen in the hotels in New Marrakech. Our room was very clean and was cleaned twice each day. We loved having iPod Bose docking station to listen to our music.
Location, location, location...means so much. The Riad is centrally located in Old Marrakech and about 5-10 minute walk to Jemaa el Fna. Perfect distance. On the way to Jemaa, there are sooooo many souks and so our journey typically was longer than 5-10 minutes to get to the square because we were shopping an negotiating prices. Our trip to the Atlas mountains was arranged by Khadijah and her staff and we really had a great time. We had a wonderful tour guide and the arrangements for lunch (as part of the tour) was at the best restaurant the Atlas Mountains had to offer. We loved that our tour was truly reasonably priced and the service was outstanding. We honestly thought that the money paid we be equated with ok service. I am glad that we were wrong.
Because the Riad only has 6 rooms, we were able to get the personal attention (that is often associated with exorbitant prices) without paying a ton of money. The staff really treated you like family and everyone greeted you each time you were seen. The breakfast and dinner was very good and the amount provided could feed an army. The Riad was very peaceful and we loved that we were able to leave the bustling crowd and return to a peaceful and really truly beautiful Oasis.
In sum, we loved staying at Riad Zolah and when we return to Marrakech, we will be sure to stay there. We highly recommend you'd to stay at Riad Zolah. Enjoy!
