Situated in the heart of the historical Marrakech medina just 10 minutes from the main square of Jemaa el Fna, Riad Dar Zaman is a traditional 18th century Moroccan home that has been refurbished to create a luxurious guest house. Retaining many of its original features, the riad is tastefully furnished with rich local fabrics, African artwork, soft Berber rugs, pots and beautiful handmade furniture. Dar Zaman, meaning “old house” in Arabic, is available by room and is also perfect for families and small groups renting the whole riad as a quality private retreat.
The riad is a sanctuary from the bustle of the medina, with log fires in the salons for the winter months, and a sun terrace and deliciously cool dipping pool in the courtyard for the summer months.
We offer a high level of discreet personal service at Dar Zaman, 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 six 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.
Mint tea is complimentary for all guests – and we'll show you how to make it.
The journey from the airport to Riad Dar Zaman takes 20 minutes with our driver. Contact us directly once you have your reservation confirmation and we’ll organise to have our driver meet you in the Arrivals Hall.

Riad Dar Zaman has a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
A sumptuous breakfast is included in the room rate – a wonderful choice of fresh bread, croissants, pastries and crepes with honey and jam, yoghurt, eggs and fresh fruit served with freshly squeezed orange juice, tea and coffee.
For lunch and dinner, our housekeeper, 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 options...whatever you choose, you'll be in for a true gastronomic delight. All meals are prepared to order using fresh local produce sourced daily from the local market.
Our cooking classes are extremely popular – we’ll take you to visit the local baker and then to the souks to buy all the ingredients for your class. At the end of the class you get to eat everything you've prepared!
