When you’re staying in the heady and exotic country of Morocco there’s really only one way to do it and that’s in a riad. They may vary in size and style but they are all colourful, welcoming and enjoyably, well, Moroccan.
Riads are the traditional accommodation of Morocco so if you want authenticity look no further. The capital city of Marrakech is the obvious place to start your voyage and there is plenty of delightful accommodation here. Some riads are tucked away in quiet residential areas, away from the hustle and bustle, but others are right in the heart of the markets and noise.
And you will also find riads in Fez and Essaouira, so you can experience the whole country. Accommodation differs – some riads are highly luxurious, with swimming pools and spas, and others are charmingly old-school with sunny roof terraces and lovingly furnished rooms. Why stay in a modern hotel when you can have all of this?
