We arranged transport from the airport with Peter, the owner of the Riad. The minibus took us to Rue Sidi Ben Slimane where we were met by Hassan, who guided us through the narrow alleys to Riad Zaman. We did wonder where we had come, but once through the door (only one door) all the hustle and bustle ceased and calm descended! Upon arrival we were treated to Moroccan tea (mint) and biscuits, then Hassan gave us a map and explained various routes through the souk, historical attractions, cafes and the whereabouts of the famous square. We had two rooms during our stay as we had arrived on a Monday and it fitted in better with their arrangements. As we were there for a week it was ok by us. The rooms were simply furnished with a large comfortable bed and a large bath-tub with shower over. All very clean. There are only four rooms, one of which is the 'penthouse' on the roof. From the roof terrace you look out over a sea of satelite dishes to the Atlas Mountains. You are given the key to the door, so can come and go as you please. The rooms are arranged around a small courtyard where there is a small plunge pool, not used when we were there because it wasn't warm enough, but I think it would be very welcome in the heat of the summer.
After unpacking we sallied forth to orient ourselves, and took photos along the way of the alley, (to find our way back in case we got lost).
We booked a meal for the first night there, which was a good idea. The food was good and plentiful. Breakfast included pancakes, eggs, yoghurt bread and fresh fruit.
The staff at the Riad are most helpful, and helped organise a trip to the Atlas Mountains where we had a short walk, culminating at the home of the guide, where his wife served up a tasty lamb tagine.
Marrakech is manic, hundreds of mopeds charging about the narrow streets of the souks, hustle and bustle, very colourful and vibrant. Lots to see. A city of contrasts. The expensive hotels, Kings Palace,ornate mosques, fabulous modern airport and train station and the poverty of the back streets and alleys.
A stay in the medina is a must to experience the different culture.
ps If a light sleeper, take ear plugs as the Mosques call to prayer at the crack of dawn, and there is one just down the road!

From the moment I arrived I felt just like home!
Whatever I needed Hassam, the manager, was always ready to help. And by the way he became a great friend!

This little hotel is perfect when you want to be treated as the unique guest in the place. The staff always did the best they can to make my trip to Marrakesh the most amazing it could be, and they did it with sucess!! =)

Loved it! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left there was nothing that Hassan the guest manager could not do. Amazing.

The Riad is small. Perfect for Marrakech. After walking the souks and bartering or heading to the dessert or Imlil for the day the riad was a haven. Safe and quiet (ok the mosque is close but really didn't interfere much with my sleep).

The central courtyard is a haven and the rooms individually designed by Peter. The roof terrace has amazing views and the moroccan with actually quite good!

Food on arrival was perfect. Lovely and just delicious. Other places really good too - for drinks - Cafe Arabe. The Jardin. And the hotel off the square also call the Jardin -has an amaxing courtyard with pool and roof terrace..... but the riad is just the best.

Peter arranged a 3 day 2 night dessert trip. Camels. Ruins. Kasbahs and a lot LOT lot of dessert. Wonderful trip.

We also went to Imlil and took a walk - in Toubkal national park and returned for lunch at Richard Brandson's Kasbah Tamadot. Wow - really worth it.

Souks - as a barginer I loved chatting to the sellers. Really great experience. Yes we bought a carpet! But do not feel pressured and if you don't want it don't buy it!

Room Tip: Larges room is 1st one upstairs. 2nd room has a bath and shower above. 3rd room has an amazing shower (no bath). There is 1 room on the terrace but if it rains you'll get wet! None of the rooms are large - so don't expect to be able to skip about it them. After all Marrakech is about getting out there and exploring! Downstairs there are 3 rooms to enjoy - lounge x2 and dining room and also the covered courtyard so there is no lack of space.

A charming bijou Riad right in the heart of the medina. Beautifully and tastefully decorated. Rooms are of course, compact but nicely, traditionally, furnished and very comfortable with Immaculate housekeeping. Roof terrace for sunning yourself, with sun beds and tables and chairs. We ate 2 meals in the riad and it was honestly the best food we had , the whole time we were in Marrakech! If you ask, they will get you a bottle of wine for your meal- there is no bar as such and alcohol is of course, not particularly easy to come by in the city- you have to find a supermarket somewhere- Achima out by the Majorelle gardens was the one we used. There are a few bars within relatively easy reach of the riad- Cafe Arabe was a ten minute walk.
Helpful information supplied by 'guest relations manager' Hassan and he will give you a map of the medina to help you find your way around- but you WILL get lost at some point! Dont worry, you will find your way out eventually!

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems, dont choose the Baignoir room- the bath/showertub is quite difficult to get in and out of, with a step up to and into it.

Unique location, amazing and hospitable staff. Stayed here with my wife in December last year! Pictures do not do justice to the unique qualities Dar Zaman offers. Fantastic chef and food. Apologizes for the delay in writing a review. Thankyou Peter for a lovely stay.
