“English owned and run, Riad Dar Zaman offers a very Moroccan welcome! Here you'll find traditional decor featuring Berber rugs and cushions, plus original handcrafted pieces in all the rooms. With only four rooms (and no children allowed under 12) you are guaranteed an intimate stay, but equally you can take over the entire property for a break to remember. Food is gourmet Moroccan with freshly prepared daily changing dishes featuring ingredients sourced from local markets and farmers. Chef, Karima, also offers cookery lessons; she'll take you to the souk, help you select some goodies, then teach you how to make them into something delicious. Outside you can relax and enjoy the views (over the medina and to the Atlas Mountains) from the sun terrace and if it gets too hot you can cool off in the courtyard plunge pool. Come here for a taste of Marrakech that certainly won't break the bank.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
The warm welcome, attentive service, delicious food, peace and calm.
What is there to do in the area?
Riad Dar Zaman is in the heart of the old historical city (medina), within easy walking distance of the main attractions - the souks, historical monuments, spas, cafés and restaurants.
Outside of the medina there are modern art galleries, gardens and boutique shops, and for those seeking more action, we can help you organise mountain biking, trekking in the Atlas Mountains, quad biking, camel treks, hot air balloon rides and some world class golf.
What kind of breakfast do you offer?
Our breakfasts include fresh fruit, homemade yoghurt, eggs, pastries, bread, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee and tea. If you follow a gluten free diet, our chef Karima makes some delicious alternatives.
Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
We offer delicious lunches and dinners freshly prepared with locally grown seasonal produce. There are several excellent restaurants within easy walking distance of Dar Zaman and our team can make recommendations and take care of reservations for you.
Which are your most popular room types, and why?
All our rooms have a unique feature with their own charm.
What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms ?
We regretfully don't accept children under the age of 12 years unless part of an exclusive rental of the whole riad. We can add an extra bed in one of the rooms (La Douiria).”
What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
