“Home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

I don't know why I am sharing this with other people - I want to keep it all for myself! This was my third visit and my second this year. This place is perfect in every way. Right in the medina and minutes from the souks. The rooms are delightful and so comfortable. Fresh flowers, fruit, pastries and a new bottle of water every day. Lots of hot water and thick fluffy towels. Catherine and Maurice are superb hosts and make you feel so welcome. They are, in fact, sharing their home with you. Their loyal staff are like family. I never want to stay anywhere else when I am in Marrakech.

Room Tip: I loved our room 'Iris' but the only slight drawback was that it is near the front door and...

I was a bit hesitant to book this riad because there were not recent reviews. How can one feel confident when there are so many Marrakech choices? Zouina turned out to be beyond perfect. It underwent a renovation enhancing it's elegant ambiance. Three salons and ten bedrooms make for plenty of privacy and quiet all decorated with Moroccan antiques and Berber carpets. Catherine, the English speaking French owner is a detail person and she was always so pleased to help with anything. This means your stay will be ideal. It's immaculate, plenty of hot water, embroidered linens, thick towels. Charming terrace where breakfast is served amid bougainvillea, potted palms and jasmine climbing trellises has a view of the Koutoubia Mosque and Atlas mountains. Breakfast begins with crepes, then coffee or tea, yogurt, cake, fruit, toast, eggs if you want and spreads. Enough for us till dinner. We stayed in the room named Douria with a wooden ceiling complete with a colored glass windowed domed cupola. Very special. Bottled water and bouquets seemed to be room standards. The pool with jacuzzi jets, like most pools in Marrakesh, is al temprano. The home is a cool tranquil respite from the frenzied medina. It's a seven minute easy to remember walk to Fna. We had one meal of salads which were delicious. Easy to find. Less than ten minutes from the train station.

Room Tip: Choose Douria, itLs a special treat.

Riad Zouina was the place I found years ago and I have never stayed anywhere else since. Catherine and her team have created an oasis of peace and tranquillity in the most convenient location within the bustling medina. The service is incredibly friendly - almost family-like - and the staff has helped us with everything from travel arrangements through wedding planning. Riad Zouina is one of the reasons Marrakesh has become a yearly must-holiday for us.

Room Tip: All rooms are very different und have their unique style. I prefer the ones on the first floor rathe...

Marrakech has so many beautiful places to stay and Riad Zouina is one of them. Spread over two Riads its has been beautifully re-created into a very charming space. The sprawling terrace is a delight. Catherine was a very informative and helpful host giving us a great orientation to the fabulous city of Marrakech. Recommended.

The location, staff and decor of Riad Ziouna were exceptional. Even though the hustle and bustle of the medina (and the main square Djemma el Fna) where all a few minutes away you could easily relax in the riad if you needed some downtime, and taxis to Hivernage and Ville Nouvelle (where a lot of restaurants are), can be found at the end of the street. The advice and guidance of Catherine was extremely helpful and we would recommend anyone to stay here if wanting a Riad experience in Marrakesh. We will definitely book again when coming back to Marrakesh (and will brush up on French as it will help). Thanks to Catherine and all at Riad Ziouna!

Room Tip: We did not see all rooms, but ours (Jasmine) was lovely and generally cool as on ground floor, but t...

Great riad, charming, Catherine was very helpful and nice. The wheather is very hot, so the pool is a bless.
It is very close to the market jemma el fna, we only stayed for 2 nights, wished we stayed longer. Maybe next time.
Greetings from Romania.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the place and the warmth of the staff, especially the owner, Catherine, who made our stay very pleasant. The staff are delightful and discrete. Breakfast on the sunny terrace is fantastic and dinner is of a very high quality. Don't forget to experience a massage!
