Riad Zina

This was the location of our last 2 nights in Marrakech. I was looking for "authentic" places to stay rather than another brand name hotel and found numerous ones online at http://www.riadsmorocco.com/. I found this riad at http://www.riadzina-marrakech.com/. All in all this was a lucky find. The house was delightful and Beate Prinz, the owner, was quite the hostess.

I can't say that this choice was a hit right off. The alley above is the entrance into the riad. There was some skepticism as to whether we could drag our luggage and all the items we had bought through this narrow, crowded alley. Luckily, we had brought our trusty, "homeland security" hand cranked flashlight as the last few steps were in the dark with the alley height less than 6 feet. But . .

The photo to the left shows the entrance to the riad with the low alley leading to it to the immediate right of the entrance.

Once inside, the riad opened up into the sunny, open air place you see in the pictures below. Other scheduled guests had cancelled leaving the whole house to us.

Beate's housekeeper, Malika, invited us to visit her family for the Eid as soon as we had dropped our bags.

A highly recommended choice for accommodations in Morocco.
