I spent a week at Riad Zam Zam during mid September 2009 and stayed in the Isaac Room. It was the perfect location to enjoy the tail end of our summer holiday. Emma, Marcus and their staff have created a warm, relaxing and friendly atmosphere in which to escape the hectic charm of Marrakech.
During my stay I managed to enjoy some of the services and activities offered by the Riad including:
- a cooked meal upon on our arrival from Fes - which tasted amazing
- a brilliant cooking class to learn some of the secrets of Moroccan dishes - the outcome was amazing, I even surprised myself, and
- the onsite Hammam spa followed by a relaxing massage (just what was needed after a hectic day shopping in the souks).
The atmosphere of the Riad is perfect. During our stay we meet many other friendly and interesting travellers and managed to swap stories on negotiating with the shop keepers, where to find particular items in the souk or interesting restaurants and bars we managed to locate. In addition, Emma and the team were always helpful with suggestions for day trips, shopping tips and restaurants.
Riad Zam Zam is located in the northern part of the Medina and is about a 20-30 min walk/stroll to the main square in Marrakech. This is exactly to my taste as you get to spy on everyday life in one of the oldest sections of the medina away from the tourist masses which are huddled around the souks and the square. On the occasion when we felt particularly lazy we just had the Riad organise a car for us to take us where we wanted to go, all done with the utmost ease.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Riad Zam Zam and will definitely stay there on my next visit to Marrakech. Markus
