We stayed 3 nights in Riad Zolah in September 2012. This riad is quietly located in the center of old medina, very close to Jmaa El Fna square and souks (about 5 minutes walking distance), as well as to Koutoubia Mosque, Palias Moulay Idriss and Palais Bahia (15 minutes by foot).
We had a very nice spacious room on the 3rd floor with beautiful traditional Moroccan decoration. The king size bed is firm and comfy. Bathroom is huge with a 'pool size' tub and shower. Shampoo, soap, bathrobe, hairdryer were provided. But you need to bring toothbrush and toothpaste. Towels, bedding were decent. Our room was cleaned twice a day. We love the iPod Bose docking station and it was so relaxing to listen to our favorite music at night. WiFi was free and fast. Besides, in the room there was complementary plate filled with fruits and nuts, plus two bottle of water everyday.
Breakfast was generous, freshly squeezed juice, mint tea, coffee, bread, pastry, Moroccan pancake, butter and jams as well as variety of fruits, see my picture.
Staffs were very friendly, helpful and thoughtful, a cell phone was provided to us in case we would get lost. They speak very good English.
We truly had a very good time in this riad, which providing an exceptional service, we highly recommend this place.
This riad has a tight stairs inside and outside the room, for example, in our room the bed area is raised, so we have to get one step up or down from that area to go to other area. Mentally, we had to constant reminder this issue to ourselves.
The car can not go into the medina, so make arrangement with riad staff to pick you up at the edge of the medina, (only 8 minutes from the parking place) and have riad phone ready in case the taxi driver needs to call it. The Phone number is: 00212 (0) 5 2438 7535. I attached a picture to show the alley leading to the riad.
To go to the Jamaa El Fna square is very easy, from riad, turn right, 1 minute turn right again, then go along the alley until you see a white gate marked “Bougainrullier Cafe” (see my photo) on the right, from there, turn left, by 3 minutes you will be in the square.
