“Lovely little riad”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Wonderful little riad in the heart of Marrakech with all the amenities you will need. Great value for money. Peter was very helpful in getting us familiar with the area which is fairly difficult to navigate at first. Breakfast was tasty. Highly recommended.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with family

Well done to Peter and Hassan for making our break so memorable. The riad is a hidden gem and I mean hidden! .... but Hassan will give you a map and detailed instructions of all the places to eat and visit. From collection at the airport to providing a lovely meal on the first night Hassan will try and anticipate your every need in a caring but unobtrusive way. The riad is small, intimate and beautiful. Excursions arranged through Peter and Hassan were top quality too. Thanks to both, staying here will not disappoint and a great contrast to the hustle and bustle outside.

Room Tip: Querky small en suite rooms - none will disappoint

I work in the travel industry and have been visiting Marrakech for the past 15 years. I have stayed in a wide range of accommodation throughout Morocco and love the country. In recent years I have spoken to various travellers who have mentioned Dar Zaman, always giving glowing reports of the building, services, and most of all, the excellent staff. In May my Wife and I decided to find out what all the fuss was about. Our visit could not have impressed us more, a truly wonderful experience, made perfect by the attentions of our host Peter. The rooms are a delight, beautifully decorated and conveying a truly intimate atmosphere. It is immediately obvious that Dar Zaman has been created by someone who truly cares about the customer experience. The food is pure Heaven and the staff are a delight. A very special place, perfect for a romantic getaway or family holiday. Go, go now!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are delightful but talk to owner Peter.

My son has stayed here several times and often talked enthusiastically about it at home in the UK. So when he offered to take there me as a birthday treat I was thrilled. It was perfect in every way. My room was off the roof terrace - peaceful and airy. The cool atrium was also a delightful spot to relax after sightseeing or hitting the souk for bargains. Hassan was very attentive and so helpful - nothing was too much trouble whether it was helpful advice or delicious refreshments we required. Highly recommended for those who like an authentic local experience.

Room Tip: Rooms are quite compact, but have everything you need. The one on the roof is particularly nice in m...

My husband and I stayed a couple of nights at Dar Zaman in April. We were in Marrakech for 3 nights and, unfortunately, Dar Zaman only had a room for 2 of those nights. Peter was super helpful in helping me find a riad for our last night. La Baignoire room was very nice with a beautiful little bathroom. Hassan was so very accommodating to our needs. He was very thorough when showing us the map of Marrakech and teaching us where to go and what to expect. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and would love to go back again!

Read all the other reviews. They are spot on. Our party of 6 had a fantastic time at the Riad Dar Zaman over Easter. We had a thorougly wonderful time. The Riad is atmospheric; the rooms nicely decorated and appointed. The food was marvellous. We ate in on a couple of occasions and Hassan and Karima provided a wonderful choice of top qualty food. Even more impressive was the welcome from Peter and his team. This is how customer service should be! They could not do enough for us, whether it be arranging day trips, recommending restaurants or providing maps to guide us through the medina. I would not normally single out an individual for special praise, but in the case of Hassan its necessary. What a lovely person and what impecable service. He is a star! Peter is a font of knowledge. He recommended a day trip to the High Atlas and made all the arrangements for us. We visited Kasbah du Toubkal for the views (and a welcome drink after the short hike) and then travelled back down the valley to have lunch at Richard Bransons, impressive Kasbah du Tamadot. What a memorable day. I highly recommend the former for its atmosphere and the latter for its style (and lunch there was not expensive!).
All in all a wonderful 4 nights at the Riad dar Zaman. If we ever return to Marrakech then there is only going to one place that we will stay. Thank you Peter, Hassan and Karima for the experience, your top quality service and your friendly welcome. Diolch yn fawr iawn.

Room Tip: All the rooms were great. My wife and I had the top floor room with the patio. Although the smallest...

We participated in a half day cooking class and it was a wonderful experience. We created our menu, went shopping in the neighborhood market and then returned to the riad and spent the rest of the morning preparing our feast. The day was capped off by eating our meal on the roof with a view of the Atlas Mountains. Great host, guide and cooking teacher. A memorable experience. I took the recipes home and make chicken tangine in my crock pot!
