Welcome to our Marrakech Riad – “Dar Zaman”

Dar Zaman means old house, house of the good old times, of happy memories, and it is our goal to maintain this tradition with all guests.

Dar Zaman is a four bedroom riad located in the heart of the Marrakech medina in Morocco. The riad operates as a private guesthouse, boasting a lush courtyard garden, sun terrace, plunge pool, open fireplaces, comfortable relaxing areas, delicious food and a fun and lovely team to take care of you!

Once inside, the only sound to interrupt the peace and quiet of the riad is the merry chirping of birds that come to visit the courtyard garden.

Marrakech is a fantastic city – one of those places you must visit. Riad Dar Zaman is a great choice for your accommodation in Marrakech – your home from home – we’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Stay in an Authentic Marrakech Riad

Dar Zaman offers four nicely decorated private en-suite bedrooms. All rooms have typical exotic Moroccan decor with Berber rugs and other African handicraft.

Super comfortable memory foam beds, quality duvets and pillows and high thread count bed linens make bedtime one of the best parts of your stay in our Marrakech riad. Totally recover after busy days exploring the ancient medina.


Dining at Dar Zaman

We use the freshest ingredients sourced from our local neighbourhood farmers market to create delicious Moroccan dishes for your dining pleasure. Our chef Karima learned the art of cooking at home with her mother and grandmother. Karima has the innate ability to take ordinary ingredients and turn them into something extraordinary. Dining at the riad is an experience not to be missed – you’ll be in for a mouth watering treat!

A wholesome breakfast is included in the room rate. Follow the link below for details.

Fun Cooking Classes

We offer fun cooking classes at Dar Zaman with our chef Karima and manager Hassan.

Over mint tea and pastries we’ll decide the menu with you, then we’ll make a tour, including the communal oven at the end of our street and the nearby local farmers market where you’ll see real medina life up close.  Back at the riad you’ll learn the recipes for Moroccan salads, tagine, dessert and delicious mint tea!

Hassan and Karima are fun characters and great hosts and you’ll learn a lot about life in Morocco as you chat during the class.


Your Marrakech Adventure

We provide all guests with a detailed map of the Marrakech medina on which we highlight walking routes, restaurants, monuments and other sites of interest.

For those interested in exploring in more depth, we can help organise guided walking tours of the medina and private day trips to areas surrounding Marrakech, such as the High Atlas Mountains, Essaouira on the coast, and a little further south, Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate.

Let the adventures begin!
