“A special place!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

I really have trouble explaining what Kasbah Ziwana truly is. In this hotel located within the walls of an ancient kasbah (made by mud and palm-tree leaves) you will get the true taste of local Zagora with families passing by and kids playing on the street and narrow alleys. The hotel itself is completely renovated with personal work put by its owner Jean Claude, a very friendly host that provides nice tips for things to do in the. Draa valley.

The kasbah is a few kilometers before Zagora and quite difficult to find. Calling the number we've been directed to a local shop for directions where we were typically offered anything from desert trips to tourbans! You will get that a lot in the area but don't let it spoil your visit.

The rooms are very simple so if comfort is what you are looking for, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a local experience that will prepare you for you trip to the desert then this is the place and the view from the terrace while having a glass of tea will reward you.

Good luck Jean Claude!

Reviewed 27 November 2013

Owner (a french guy) calls this place a special one. And he is right - place really have the spirit. B&B is in old Ksar (it occupies part of it) near the river Dra. In other parts of Ksar some other B&B are situated, some local people are living and etc. - you are in the middle of life running around you. Rooms are nice, but not too clean (you can smell dust, we found few hairs in our bed), hot water is turned on only in the evening (owner said that before cheking in - he got "plus" for openess).

Kasbah has a parking lot, but as it is in the middle of Ksar and as "life is going on around" you are bit afraid of your rented car - some kids were playing with stones around it:)

Owner is really frendly and interesting person to talk to - he really and many value to kasbah. Especially for that moments then you are drinking tea in terrace and looking to the moon.
