... the Riad didn't lose it's Moroccan themings, just created a more modern atmosphere. We were escorted to level four for pre-dinner drinks and canapes. 4 levels is about the higest building you will find in the old city so as you can imagine the views are breath taking. We settle in for Margaritas and the sunset and absorb the magic of the skyline. As darkness falls we are invited back downstairs to the dining room where 5 courses of AMAZING is served. ...
... a palace that has been turned into a museum. True to Moroccan style it wasn’t much but high walls on the outside but once inside the courtyards and details inside the rooms were very impressive. It had a selection of doors, jewellery, pottery, carpet, weapons and woodwork. Later in the afternoon we had a bit of rain (was quite surprising actually!) but it cooled the weather down a bit which I appreciated. When it stopped ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Azzar US
Riad Azzar is so conviniently close to Jemaa el-Fna yet, when you enter it, you feel so removed from the outside chaos. I arrived in the medina exhausted from the long journey and did circles in the medina, and souks, looking for the riad. Finally I called and they sent someone to meet me in the square. We traveled a little into the souks and then took a left down an alley. As a woman traveling by myself, I was at first concerned that the riad was off an alley but it was never a problem.
Riad Azzar is simply stunning. After walking through the hectic square to get to the Riad its like a beautiful, tranquil haven. So much thought and care has been put into all the decoration and at night time there are candles and fresh flowers everywhere making it seem incredibly romantic.
Value for your money
We were for the fourth time in Marrakech and now we find the best place to stay: Riad Azzar. It's a beautiful and very quiet riad, only a 5 minutes walk from Jemaa el Fna. Great rooms, friendly people.
Real value for money!!

What a splendid stay!
What a fantastic place Riad Azzar is.Whe, my wife and I, where during the first week of March 2006 in Marrakesh en we booked for this wonderfull Riad.
With very friendly people who helped with everything we asked, weather is was the rental of a car or booking a nice restaurant in the Medina, everything was well arranged and handled with a smile.
The cooking was great with very good Marocan food.
In our view a perfect place for a relaxed stay.
We have just arrived back from a few days in Marrakech and stayed at the Riad Azzar. As soon as we arrived in Marrakech we knew we were going to love it and after being dropped off by the taxi in the square and having our cases put on a hand drawn cart we were taken through the twisty streets of the Souks to our accomodation.
I have just returned from a wonderful 10 days in Morocco.My final stop was Marrakech and the the best was revealed, a stay at Riad Azzar. From the moment one enters the beautiful door you are captivated by everything therein. (The hospitality of Maryk and Cees began even before I arrived in their helpful corespondance in planning my stay and wondeful suggestion). I cannot say enough about the proprietors, and the engaging, comfortable and elegant space they have created for their guest. The rooms are beautiful, not only each individual bedroom but all the public areas. Every detail of the riad reflects care, comfort and attention.Throughout my stay I felt like I had been taken care of in the most
One of the reasons I chose to stay at Riad Azzar was by reading some of the good reviews from this website. I was not disappointed. Riad Azzar was one the highlights of our trip to Marrakech. Maryk , Cees and the rest of the staff at this Riad are so friendly and helpful. The food was great. The room was perfect.
I am already looking forward to the next time I can stay here.
When I first arrived in Marrakech, I was overwhelmed by the hubbub of this African-Arabian-European city. Colors everywhere, noise, smells, great bargains in the Soukh, where should I start? I therefore was very happy to enter the quiet, clean and beautiful patio of Riad Azzar. Just a few steps away from the Soukh and in the centre of the busy old city, there's this oasis of hospitality. Riad Azzar is the dream come through of a Dutch couple, Maryk and Cees van den Berg. They combine Dutch hospitality with Moroccan warmth and, never to forget, Fatima's cooking! There's no greater pleasure than to sit down at the roof terrace after a day of shopping and walking the city, and to be treated to a tasteful Moroccan meal. The rooms are decorated in European-Moroccan style, so all comfort the traveller needs is provided for. It's also a great place for a honeymoon. Maryk, Cees and their staff do their very best to create great memories.
You'll feel at home in Riad Azzar
We recently spent the winter holidays at Riad Azzar, where the hosts, Maryk and Cees van den Berg, could not have been more welcoming. The place is beautifully decorated, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere delightful. Nothing was too much trouble to make our stay memorable. Our experience proved that hospitality truly is part of the Moroccan culture.
