    Lovely riad with warm & friendly staff

    I had a really lovely stay here. As I was arriving late in the evening, I opted to book the airport transfer & I’m very glad I did as I wouldn’t have found the riad on my own - unfortunately google maps doesn’t show the lane ways around the riad. I had dinner the night I arrived, which was delicious. The room was comfortable & thankfully there was an air-con split unit so I was able to warm up as it was cold over night. The room was spacious, bathroom lovely with toiletries & nice towels. The breakfast spread was also great & more than I could eat. All of the staff I met were really friendly & helpful too. I would highly recommend staying here & would gladly return.

    We had an excellent stay! The owner Alan was friendly and very helpful. He gave us two maps and personally walked us out of the Riad and pointed out things to look for to get back to the Riad. The Riad staff were very friendly. They work well as a team and were willing to help us with anything we needed.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This Riad is in the heart of the Souks and takes some practice finding without getting lost, which we soon realized is part of the experience. Watch for fast moving motorbikes through narrow passages. The staff at Riad El Zohar were very accommodating and want to enhance your stay by offering many amenities at reasonable rates. The riad is very authentic and comfortable, we loved the architecture and the feel of old style Morocco. So glad we chose a riad over a hotel. We were the only guests at the time of our stay. Private’s rooms and bath which was nice with an open air atmosphere, pool and roof top balcony for sunning or enjoying the cool breeze in the evening. We highly recommend this riad for making your stay in Merrakech a memorable one.

    This was one of the most beautiful places we’ve been privileged to stay. The building itself was amazing and the staff clearly enjoys what they do. They made us feel comfortable and welcome from the beginning. The entire experience was one I would love to repeat and will strongly recommend to everyone!

    A thoroughly enjoyable experience

    This was a novel & very enjoyable experience - the Riad is more like a family home than a hotel, with 5 individual rooms, & a range of antique & quirky furnishings. Our room was well-equipped with a nice en-suite, although the bed wasn't the most comfortable I've slept in. We had a couple of enjoyable breakfasts & a really good dinner served on the rooftop terrace - above all, we were made very welcome by the owner, Allan, who was informative, entertaining & very good company. His staff were also very professional & helpful, & the overall ambiance was very conducive to an enjoyable & all-too-short stay.

    Fantastic riad for exploring Marrakech

    Allan and his team are excellent hosts and cannot do enough to ensure you have a great stay. The riad is gorgeous and we thoroughly recommend for a traditional Moroccan stay. It is just seconds from the souk, yet so quite and peaceful, silence broken only by song of prayer or birds singing. Thank you!
