I stayed a this Riad with my wife and a family of 3 kids aged 6, 4 and 2. We were looking for a riad inside the Medina with a family room.
This is a great Riad for families. It is ideally located, right next to to Jama el Fna square, but on a side street which is completely quiet in the evenings and at night. We wanted something central with a Riad atmosphere, but that was quiet enough at night and this fit the bill perfectly.
The Riad itself is finished to high standards, and the family room had 2 double beds and a cot. It was on the first floor so the stairs were a bit of a concern for our toddler but in the end not a big deal, the room can be closed off and access to the stairs blocked off.
Breakfast was very good. Evening meals were cooked by Fatima and ver good. We got a chance to compare the Tagine we had at the Rid with ones you get elsewhere and the best one was at the Riad. We had a couple of evening meals there and the rest were in Marrakech.
The Riad is held by Samira who can organise activitis for you, shuttles to the airport, car rental, hammam and the like. Shuttles are defintely recommended. For 30 eur return you get someone to pick you up, take you to a drop off point close to the Riad, and guide you through the Medina to the Riad, with your luggage (and kids :-)) on a cart. Handy when traveling with children and well worth the money.
We rente a car and were looking for car seats for the children - this isn't seasy to get in Marocco but if you insist you can get some. Same for the shuttle to the Riad, if you want car seats you can ask Samira.
The good thing about this Riad's location is that it is literally 5 minutes from the main square and you can find it easily from there, so you just need to find your way back to the Main square to find your way back to the Riad.
If you are looking for a good family Riad then this is a good choice. Samira also runs a Riad 5 minutes away from this one called Reves d'Orient (http://www.tripadvisor.es/Hotel_Review-g293734-d1557836-Reviews-Riad_Reves_D_orient-Marrakech.html).

During the last week of december 2010 we stayed with four persons at Riad Zehar. The Toubkal rooms where really carefull and very nice decorated, as well as whole Riad. The Riad has a wide roof terrace, with also a cosy covered space. We experienced Riad Zehar as a quiet and very hospitable oase, only a street away from the souks and central curiosity's of Marrakech!
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast every morning at the time it suited us. Riad Zehar is the best kept secret of Marrakech. The price/ quality proportionally will not dissapoint you!

We, two couples, stayed at Riad Zehar for one week during christmas-time. Riad Zehar is located in the nicest neighbourhood within the Medina, Mouassine. It is located in a quiet street very close to shoppingstreets, the souks and the Jemma El Fna Square.

The Riad is very smal and intimate with only three rooms (two rooms for two and one for four, in which we stayed) and it looks just perfect with beautifull decorations everywhere! Breakfast is served every morning, in the courtyard or on the rooftop-terrace.

Our room, the room with two beds, is decorated beautifully. It had one room on the first floor, which also contained the tadelakt bathtub/shower. There is a small hallway which containes a toilet, a sink and a closet. Down the stairs is the second bedroom wich looks really romantic.

The host, Fatima, is so warm and caring! Not only does she serves you a cup of tea whenever you return from a long day on the streets of Marrakech, she also brings out a blanket when it's cold at night on the terrace and took care of us when we arrived past midnight after a delayed flight. Samira, the manager, speaks english very well and stops by the Riad (she also runs another one) regularly to help you out. She helped us when we wanted to visit a Hammam (a very nice authentical one), a trip to Ourika Valley and a taxi to the airport. She is a very modern and lovely lady!

We felt like leaving a family when leaving Marrakech!

I found myself unexpectedly at the Riad Zehar when plans for a desert excursion fell through and Samira graciously found room for me here after I had stayed the previous two nights at the Reves d'Orient. What a pleasure it turned out to be.. My room was spacious, comfortable, and quiet, although I spent much of my time here on the lovely rooftop terrace, which is well appointed and has great views of the Koutoubia Mosque and the surrounding neighborhood. What really sets this place apart, though, is the service. Samira and her team truly make you feel at home and go to great lengths to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. In addition, the location is superb --in Moussaine, just minutes from Djemaa el Fna-- and the food is outstanding. The breakfast here and the chicken tajine dinner were among the best meals I had in Marrakech. Highly recommended.

I actually had the opportunity to be in two of Samira's riads.Samira will always receive you with a gorgeous smile! I have to say I am very pleased that I shared this very happy time of my life with Samira, her brothers and sisters, Khadija and, of course, Fatima. If you are looking for cosiness and an intimate place, but still want to be at a 3-minutes-walk from Djamaa el Fna and very near from some of the best souks (markets) in town, Riad ZEHAR should be your choice. Do not even think about missing the gourgeous breakfast and its eggs with cumin, made by sweetest Fatima. If you are looking for luxury and a movie scenery, go to Reves d'Orient, the other riad of the family, in the same alley, where you may try a rich moutton tajine... you might be lucky to see the gorgeous Samira herself doing some bellydancing.
