About the Property
4 beds, 4 bath, sun terrace, plunge pool, log fires, wi-fi, delicious cuisine
Our Marrakech Riad is available by room and is also perfect for families and small groups renting the whole riad as a quality private retreat.
Boasting four exquisite double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning/heating, the queen-sized beds are heavenly; decadent lie-ins are mandatory! For friends travelling together, two of the rooms can be made up with twin beds. Both the salon and salle à manger have log fires, and a third salon is equipped with a small library and board games. Wi-fi is available throughout the property.
The sun terrace is a wonderful retreat in the sun or shade, graced by swaying palms and perfumed by jasmine and orange blossom. Relax with a mint tea and relish in the magic of the call of the muezzin and the spectacular views across the Medina rooftops to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains.
We offer a high level of discreet personal service, including a comprehensive welcome brief and 24/7 concierge for all your needs in Marrakech. Our aim is to enable our guests to experience the “not for tourist” Marrakech, the Marrakech we’ve come to know and love over the last 8 years.
Our team will happily share their excellent knowledge of Marrakech with you – where to buy things and the prices you should pay, where to get the best spa treatments, where to take your cooking class (at Dar Zaman!), and where you can eat a tagine seated metres from a stunning waterfall in the Atlas Mountains.
A sumptuous breakfast is included in the room rate – a wonderful choice of fresh bread, croissants, pastries and crepes with honey and jam, yoghurt and eggs, served with freshly squeezed orange juice, tea and coffee.
Our housekeeper, Karima, has been feted for her delicious Moroccan dishes. Dining at Dar Zaman is a feast for the senses. Karima can make many favourite local dishes, such as briouattes, pastilla, lots of delicous salads (Moroccan salads are mostly cooked vegetables delicately flavoured with spices), tagines - chicken with lemon, lamb with prunes or figs, couscous dishes, vegetarian you choose, you'll be in for a true gastronomic delight!
Languages Spoken: An English speaking and English managed Marrakech Riad, we also speak French, Spanish and Portuguese.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I grew up in the South East of England, lived overseas for 14 years and moved to Marrakech from New York City in 2005 to create what is now the wonderful Riad Dar Zaman.
Why the Owner Chose Bab Taghzout, Marrakech, Morocco:
Dar Zaman is located in an historical area of the Marrakech Medina which is named after Mohamed Ben Slimane, one of seven patron saints of Morocco. The neighbourhood is mostly residential, charming and authentic. I came to stay here in 2005 and fell in love with the calm simplicity of the neighbourhood.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Dar Zaman is a magical 18th century riad in the heart of the Marrakech Medina that casts a spell on all who enter! It's hard to leave, it's so peaceful and cosy, you'll wish you could stay longer!
