Dar Zen
DAR ZEN is a lovely authentic Morroccan hotel. Located in the old town in Medina. The staff are really helpful and professional. I really enjoyed my stay and thanks so much to Tarek for all the help .

This is my second stay at Dar Zen. Tarek, the caretaker is wonderful. I’ve read some negative comments in reviews but I couldn’t disagree more. The place is in the middle of a busy souk that is a bit intense - and you have to walk through (you cannot be driven to the door) so that could be a legit concern. However, if you’re after a genuine riad experience, where you are essentially left on your own, this is the place for you. Truth is the place is so peaceful, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Rabat. Sure there’s a bathtub in the middle of the room, but it’s a bit of a vibe. If your looking to have a Hilton experience, then go to a hotel. This is where you come to get a real Moroccan experience

Beautiful picturesque place, exactly like the pics. The staff are super gracious, friendly and not in your face. The walk to the place is a bit mad walking through the medina, but also makes it feel authentic. Unique experience, with lovely people

excellent guest house with amazing friendly staff!
All the staff were so friendly and kind and went beyond just providing a room at the guest house. One of the staff became our guide and chaperone for me and my daughter who is studying in Rabat with her University for the semester. Accommodation is excellent in the beautiful guest house hidden in the Medina. Very tranquil and away from the bustling Medina and marketplace.

6/10 Good

If you’re driving by yourself like I did , you’ll get lost the address that it’s post on it’s wrong, then you have to park your car outside the medina and walk with your luggage through the little streets that some of those are dark without any light The best part of my Stay at Diar zen was “Anouar” he walk with me to the restaurant and then came back for me to make sure That I didn’t get lost He also make tea as soon we arrived The city feels safe and people are nice and really helpful Ps : have some cash with you to pay locals to help you to find the RIAD zen

I uselly don't bother writing reviews but I just felt I had to for the darzen, to begin with its as moroccon as you could want it to be, the natural colour schemes, furnishings, layout all bring that feel your in a new place, each morning I would wake up to a breakfast cooked, I'm quiet a lazy sort so sometimes it was early other times it was late.. An a on demand breakfast really does wonders... Next the staff hayaat the morning House keeper and Anwar the night keeper are just something else, really if I could give 20 stars I would.. they certainly need a pay rise for there great customer approach, finally the manager she's a lovely person, we met on friday had a nice chat, couldn't be more impressed with her style and professionalism, so overall the place is a great escape from the busy madina just minutes away, you can soak in all the smells and tastes all over the gaff, would really recommend going as a couple.
