The Space

Riad is a stunning mixture of ancient and modern nestled in the heart of the magical Marrakech medina. The riad is ideally located north of the main square, close to the souks and Medersa Ben Youssef.

The Riad offers four double en-suite air conditioned rooms (Carbone and Douiria rooms can be twin), equipped with hairdryer, digital safe and complimentary toiletries.

**This listing is for the Terrasse room. See our other listings on AirBnb for the other rooms.

The riad has an interior courtyard, three sitting rooms with two open fireplaces, a dipping pool, sun terrace, satellite TV and free wi-fi.

A sumptuous breakfast is included in the room rate – a wonderful choice of fresh bread, croissants, pastries and crepes with honey and jam, homemade yoghurt and eggs, fresh fruit, served with freshly squeezed orange juice, tea and coffee.

Our aim at Marrakech Riad is to enable our guests to experience the Marrakech we've come to know and love over the last 5 years. We have a fantastic, hard working team who are ever present yet discreet, helpful and kind. They all cook - even the boys can produce a tagine that you’ll swear afterwards was the best meal you ate in Marrakech! They’ll happily share their excellent knowledge of Marrakech with you - they know where to buy quality babouche at a fair price, where to get the best spa treatments, where to take your cooking class (at our Riad!), and where you can eat a tagine seated metres from a stunning waterfall in the Atlas Mountains.

The riad is a sanctuary from the bustle of the medina – we offer luxurious bedding, complimentary toiletries, hairdryers, wifi, open fireplaces in the salons for the winter months, and a deliciously cool dipping pool for the summer months.

Mint tea is complimentary for all guests – all day and night long. The staff will happily share the recipe and show you how to make it.

Nous parlons français, se habla español, falamos português!

  • If you're returning to Marrakech (or even more so, you should know this if you have never been): It's very important to have a comfortable, safe environment which allows you to relax and feel at home, when you're not out traversing the chaos.

    Dar Zaman - - IS EXACTLY THIS!!!

    The staff is warm & welcoming, the accommodations are clean & inviting, and what I found to be even more astounding were the other guests, who I also became close with.

    All I know is - - The biggest reason that I will be returning to Marrakech is Dar Zaman... and I will bring friends. This Riad stole my heart and I look forward to my next adventure there.

    Special Notes:
    - Ask for a guided tour of the Medina & souks
    - Be sure to order dinner 'in the Riad' one of your nights
    - If you enjoy cooking - Be sure to request for the cooking class
    and when the chaos outside the Riad walls is too much...
    - Request for a day at the Baldi Country Club

    Peter Mercer, the owner of this Riad has somehow put together a magical environment that has practically rendered me speechless. I traveled alone to this city of insanity... and 4 days later, left my wonderful new family behind.

    When you stay here, you will understand the mystery of Marrakech, you will feel at home and you will look forward to your return!

    To be continued...

  • Très bon accueil. Un riad pas cher qui offre tout le confort dont on a besoin avec bon goût.
    Situé dans une partie populaire de la vieille Medina on est à 5 mn à pied des petites ruelles commerçantes et très touristiques.
    Idéal pour ceux qui cherchent plus d'authenticité et qui ne veulent pas voyager dans les hôtels.
    Le riad Dar Zaman est situé à côté de la porte Bab Taghzout non loin d'un marché pittoresque ou vous serrez, sans craintes aucunes, les seules étrangers à vous promener parmi les habitants qui vous remarqueront à peine. L'occasion de parler simplement avec les gens qui se feront un plaisir de vous donner le nom de tel épice ou autre légume sans chercher à vous soulager de quelques dirhams.

About
I'm a travel enthusiast, entrepreneur, and the inspiration behind Riad Dar Zaman. I've been living and travelling in Morocco since 2007. Before 2007 I had a different life! I lived in the US for 11 years working as an ad exec in San Francisco and New York City. I came to Marrakech on holiday in 2005 and don't ask how, but when I left one week later, I'd bought the riad that became the wonderful Dar Zaman. I'm English, I went to university in London, and I've also lived in Brazil, Germany and Saudi Arabia.
