Dar Zaman is a beautiful riad in one of the nicest parts of the city, close to the northern souks which feel much more authentic than the more tourist ones close to the main square. Hassan meets you at the taxi drop off and gives you some of the best advice on visiting the city while you have one of the nicest mint teas of the stay. Their recommendations cover some things the guide book mention, and some places they don’t, including where is best to go for sunsets, and where best to have your lunch as well as what to order at certain cafes (somethings aren’t always on the menu so you have to be in the know).
We stayed in the beautiful terrace room at the top of the riad, which felt very private and secluded, very welcome after the chaos of the square.
Unfortunately for us our stay was booked last minute, and only for one night, and the riad we were transferring to in the south of the medina was not nearly as helpful, kind or beautifully maintained as Dar Zaman. Due to a mix up in their booking system we decided to stay elsewhere for the next 4 nights of our trip, and called Peter to see if he could help us locate somewhere. As they didn’t have rooms available they contacted another riad whose owner they know, and met us in the square to escort us, as navigating the streets of the medina can be hard at first. Helping us out like this was far more than they were obliged to do after we had checked out from their Riad, but they are both so kind and helpful that they didn’t mind sorting it out, and helping us carry our bags.
I will recommend this Riad to all my family and friends, just don’t book anywhere else in the city for another part of your trip, as it may be hard to leave.
