“Most charming place in Marrakesh”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Riad Zouina was the place I found years ago and I have never stayed anywhere else since. Catherine and her team have created an oasis of peace and tranquillity in the most convenient location within the bustling medina. The service is incredibly friendly - almost family-like - and the staff has helped us with everything from travel arrangements through wedding planning. Riad Zouina is one of the reasons Marrakesh has become a yearly must-holiday for us.

Room Tip: All rooms are very different und have their unique style. I prefer the ones on the first floor rathe...

Marrakech has so many beautiful places to stay and Riad Zouina is one of them. Spread over two Riads its has been beautifully re-created into a very charming space. The sprawling terrace is a delight. Catherine was a very informative and helpful host giving us a great orientation to the fabulous city of Marrakech. Recommended.

The location, staff and decor of Riad Ziouna were exceptional. Even though the hustle and bustle of the medina (and the main square Djemma el Fna) where all a few minutes away you could easily relax in the riad if you needed some downtime, and taxis to Hivernage and Ville Nouvelle (where a lot of restaurants are), can be found at the end of the street. The advice and guidance of Catherine was extremely helpful and we would recommend anyone to stay here if wanting a Riad experience in Marrakesh. We will definitely book again when coming back to Marrakesh (and will brush up on French as it will help). Thanks to Catherine and all at Riad Ziouna!

Great riad, charming, Catherine was very helpful and nice. The wheather is very hot, so the pool is a bless.
It is very close to the market jemma el fna, we only stayed for 2 nights, wished we stayed longer. Maybe next time.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the place and the warmth of the staff, especially the owner, Catherine, who made our stay very pleasant. The staff are delightful and discrete. Breakfast on the sunny terrace is fantastic and dinner is of a very high quality. Don't forget to experience a massage!

I enjoyed the beautiful tranquility of this riad in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Medina. It is so tastefully furnished, with numerous terraces and secluded areas to relax, affording wonderful views of the Atlas Mountains and the rest of the city. Our room was wonderful with a carved and painted ceiling. There were fresh roses, fruit and pastries on our arrival. A delicious breakfast is served on the terrace and the evening meals are amazing, with good choice and all freshly sourced and cooked ingredients. Nothing seemed too much trouble for our hosts and the staff. I very much hope to return.

This was my second visit to this fantastic riad in 5 months. I cannot rate it highly enough. Catherine and Maurice are the most welcoming and informative of hosts. The staff are all delightful and so friendly. I was even shown how to make the delicious Moroccan pancakes and allowed to make my own for breakfast! Our room was amazing with the most elaborately carved and painted ceiling. Thick fluffy towels in the spotless bathroom and really hot water. Lovely fresh flowers, fruit and pastries in the room and complimentary bottled water each day. Nothing is too much trouble for our hosts. The riad is so central for the medina and easy to find. The dinners are absolutely superb and put some of the highly rated city restaurants in the shade. I hope to return in the autumn.

Room Tip: First floor gets more light than ground floor.
