First impressions having headed down Marrakech's mind assaulting alleys are slight apprehension. Upon reaching Riad El Zohar one is welcomed by the exemplary host Allan into a cool and luxurious oasis of calm. In short thoroughly enjoyed our visit which was enhanced by Allan's expert local knowledge, friendly staff, wonderful food and luxurious accommodation. We will be back. A and...

Marrakech can be a little overwhelming. Riad El Zohar run by Alan, his wife and team is a place of calm in a center of madness. The room and food was lovely and we were given maps and advice on how to avoid 'scallywag alley'. Alan has a lot of local knowledge which he imparts with humour. He recommended and...

A beautiful oasis of tranquility in the heart of the old city, this lovely riad is well appointed and a great spot from which to explore the city. Traveling as a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys we were made to feel so welcome by the owner Alan, his wife and the staff. Alan is a most engaging host,...

Marrakech is not for the faint-hearted but the Riad El Zohar is a peaceful haven in the heart of the old city. Even getting there is an exotic experience - your taxi from the airport or railway station is met by a man with a hand cart who you follow through the twisty narrow streets. The Riad itself is in...

Perfect in every way. From our initial enquiry to Alan personally bringing back saffron to the UK for us that we were unable to buy. Nothing was ever too much trouble. A wonderful experience. Lovely staff, beautiful room, great breakfasts. Excellent location. Would 100% recommend. Thank you - we will be back!

We were made to feel most welcome by Alan who was most helpful and generous with his advice. All the staff are lovely and offer kind service. It is a most attractive Riad and good location for the Souks.

This Riad is small but charming. The owner is very helpful--he is actually English-and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is ample and delicious. It is really a great place to stay. We had to leave very early in the morning to catch our plane the staff was there with food and they escorted us to our taxi...

We'd actually booked a week in a posh hotel in Essaouira but the weather was so bad we decided to hop on a bus for the city. A previous riad we'd stayed in recommended Alan at Riad El Zohar. We arrived in the pouring rain and were immediately given hot drinks and biscuits, which were very welcome under the circumstances....

From the moment we arrived we could not have been more welcomed. Allan is the perfect host, gracious, kind, funny and helpful. We had not visited Marrakech before so needed all the information he could give us. We never stepped out the door without he pointed us in the right direction, something we valued as a couple who don't have...

This was our favorite riad stay during our 10 day trip to Morocco. The riad itself is beautifully decorated with a delightful rooftop area that is perfect for taking a swim and relaxing in the sun after a long day, having a romantic dinner under the stars, or viewing the sunrise while listening to the morning calls to prayer as...
