Sparkling clean9 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

This 19th-century riad('house-garden' in Arabic) is a calm, refreshing and soothing oasis tucked away quietly in the middle of the magical chaos of the Marrakesh Medina! Very large riad in the New Moroccan Style: a subtle mix of pure, sleek architecture, but utilizing the amazing Moroccan artisanship: precious woods, irons and silks.The riad is lovely, with a heated pool and large jacuzzi on the terraces overlooking the entire Medina(historic city center) and the snow-capped Atlas Mountains.

I had a lovely 4 night stay at Dar Zelda. The staff is absolutely committed to making you feel at home. I would stay here again and I am even thinking about bringing future retreat guests to stay here.

We had the best stay at Riad Zelda!! We arrived late on a Saturday evening and didn’t want to cross to the other side of the Médina for our originally booked dinner so Jamal made us feel right at home and brought out a huge homemade couscous which we ate on the terrace with the p…

A lovely riad with great roof space, breakfast, rooms, and Manager Jemal. Not sure whether Brandon is actually in residence much, we didn’t see him at all and didn’t realise that he didn’t live there. Manager Jamal was lovely and gave us local insider tips, queue beating tips for…

Response from Brandon:
Rowena was a lovely guest. Unfortunately she didn't obviously read: "Details for Arrival" on the Airbnb website for this riad. If she had, she would know about the taxi dropping you as close as possible, 250 meters from the riad. Photos of the riad are always well-noted for accuracy on all of our Airbnb commentaries, so please reconsider this unjust review for accuracy. Also reading a guide before coming to the Medina is always a wise thing to do before visiting any foreign country. Unfortunately the Moroccan sexually-frustrated men can be annoying. Sorry, but this is well-explained in guidebooks on Marrakech and Morocco in general!

We only stayed there for a night, but the property is at a good location and very well maintained. The property manager, Jamal, was very helpful on giving local tips and the hospitality was excellent. The rooftop also offers an excellent sunset view overlooking the city. A light …
