Really nice position and decoration. Breakfast was amazing
They were digging holes with big machinery hammers, not to be recommended at this time!!
Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. A clean comfortable room with really nice authentic feel and features and a simple but generous and delicious breakfast.
Large bedroom hot shower friendly staff.
Breakfast very samey need more variety.fresh fruit yogurt too much bread pancakes everywhere.it's ok occasional but not everyday boiled eggs toast cereal
Easy to find, close to the Bus Station, comfortable bed, good size room, powerful shower
Although we had booked months in advance by credit card, on the day of departure we were told that the machine was broken and had to pay again. We have since learned that this is a common tale, so travellers beware. I had to fix the toilet in our room twice as it would not stop filling up at night and was very noisy. 'Free Toiletries' were a 5cm sachet of Pantene shampoo. Staff were polite but not at all welcoming and were more interested in watching the Reception tv. We asked for an early breakfast as we had to catch a coach but we were told that this was not possible until 8am. There were no central areas to meet with other guests other than the terrace in the morning, and the decor needs updating. We thought that overall, the accommodation was extremely over - priced compared to other similar priced Riads of much higher quality, and was more of a very low budget B&B than a Riad. We don't usually complain, but having originally paid 90 euros for 2 nights, we had expected a much higher standard than we experienced.
The staff were very helpful. They were very good at helping me arrange activities, and taking care of any business I needed. The person I dealt with the most also spoke excellent English. Which was very helpful. .
The breakfast could have had a little more variety.
position of toilet next my head when i sleep
Great location in the middle of the medina, and a friendly and helpful staff. We highly enjoyed the tasty breakfasts on the terrace (as they try to serve something else every day, which brings a pleasant surprise element to the mix).
It was very cold at nights (early March), but luckily we got some extra blankets. The room was not very large but not too small either. And one tip when you're on the terrace: the seagulls will try to steal your food, so keep an eye on those...
comfortable bed, large room, location .
Yummy, typical moroccan breakfast. Very kind staff, clean room/hotel. The owner suggested me a traditional hamam, it was a great experience! He got me a few liters very good olive oil, thanks again for this!!
Excellent location in medina. Homely. Friendly stuff. Breaksfast in roof terrace is a good start for new day.
Location is good, The owner is a very nice man & very helpful at times. My room Orientale was very nice! I hope the owner takes some positives out of my comments! In summer months most points would be fine & the price is very fair, but with my suggestions being carried out you could fairly ask for a bit more!
The breakfast was minimal, stingy if you like b/fast, as I do! When your staying more than 3 days, you would like different things like eggs, some fruit, some honey & choice, instead of that's it! The room although very nice being at the back needed proper heating! It was very cold. The owner kindly offered me some, which turned out to be a dehumidfer drawing out the water which did help, it still remained cold but without the dampness! This riad has got the chance of being really nice with some improvements, it's also unpleasant walking thru a wet floor to use the loo because of the bathroom layout. A mirror actually in the room, ladies would like that, the one in the bathroom steams up after a shower, which I got burnt in because I think the supply of hot water is connected to other places in the riad. The terrace needs a few more touches to make it really appealing. I think this riad needs a woman's touch!
Great location and very easy to find as a previous reviewer has mentioned. I had a lovely stay and it was a real tonic after the mayhem of Marrakech. The room was very nice and I actually felt as if I was being looked after if that doesn't sound like a bit of a cliche. Went to Morocco for three weeks and it was the nicest place I stayed by a long way. Nice terrace and lovely breakfast to boot.
Very good location (Supratours, beach, center, everyhing), quiet but the main medina street was just around the corner. Easy to find. Cosy, nice-looking place. No cheating, no photoshopped photos, our room and everything in the hotel was just like it was supposed to be (not that common in Morocco..). Wifi was mainly ok, roof terrace was nice. Breakfast was served on the roof. Really nice staff.
Breakfast was really small. If you like to eat healthy, there is nothing for you really.
when winter there is so cold
Stayed in the studio which had a second double bed on a second level - giving plenty of room and comfort for the family. Also a fireplace with wood to burn on the coolish January evening. Traditional Riad, nicely set out with old furniture. Good Breakfast served on the terrace. Manager and staff very helpful.
Wi-Fi a little intermitent during our stay, though manager sorted this out. If we've not given full marks for facilities because it doesn't have them, but if you're not worried by the lack of TV, trouser presses etc in our room it's a great place to stay,
The accommodation was conveniently situated for the medina and the bus station . My room was lovely and nearest the delightful terrace . Younis was very helpful and went out of his way to make my stay comfortable . My room was cleaned daily , breakfast was tasty and the staff were all charming .
Only problem was that the room was very cold at night but my requests for an extra blanket and a heater were met so it was fine .
Friendly staff, spacious room, hot shower, good location. Definitely recommended.
WiFi service in our room wasn't great, but didn't bother us much.
The guesthouse is easy to find, in a quiet street, but still very close to all the action. The building and rooms were in good shape, nicely decorated.
Minor issue, but at first only coffee was served during breakfast. We had to ask for the tea. All in all the breakfast could have been a bit more varied. But it was good, though.
Easy to walk from Supratours drop off point. Helpful boss who printed my boarding pass for me. Good wifi
When our hostel forgot to accommodate a third person for our booking, we were upgraded to the suite for the same price. We lived like kings for two days!
WiFi a little slow and hard to connect to, but that's not what I travel for, so not a big deal
Quiet, very good location. Helpful staff. Relaxing on the roof top terrace. Very good value for money.
If you’ve been lost in the Marrakesh medina, you’ll know how important being able to easily get to your riad is. This is the best feature of Dar Zayna. Most visitors will arrive at the Supratours terminal. Simply walk past the bastion to the Bab Marrakesh, 30 metres along the rue to the shop with the plastic buckets, look up to see the sign to Dar Zayna turn left and proceed to the end of the lane. At the herb shop, jink right and find #75 Rue d’Agadir. You’ll be enjoying a mint tea while others are still negotiating the transport of their luggage. The house is conveniently located close to dozens of restaurants and minutes from the beach: for a delicious cake shop simply walk a few minutes along Rue d’Algerie and turn left at the main road. Youness and his staff are professional and efficient. His house has a variety of accommodation types, including a ground floor room for old legs that don’t like stairs. Facilities are clean and functional. Very good value for money. His grandmother would be proud.
It was all good.
I had a wonderful stay at the lovely Dar Zayna - very friendly and helpful staff, very cute rooms, extremely clean, and calm. Breakfast served on the pretty roof top terrace was a great start to the day. Very central but quiet, can recommend for both single travels and couples.
Nothing negative to say!
the touch of hospitality is there , charming amzing people ,when i visited this accomodation with my my friend i was happy about comitment , help and servicing given by MR YOUSSEF AND MR ALI.THANK YOU AGAIN
