The key feature of the Morrocan hotel scene is the traditional riad, the urban or country mansions, formerly owned by the well to do, now converted into atmospheric places to stay. They are typically built around a large internal courtyard or series of courtyards and often enough the entrance is through a nondescript door in an otherwise blank city wall that gives no clue to the size of the dwelling behind. Their thick walls and few external windows usually offer welcome relief from the fierce heat of the African sun outside.
Quality of riad accommodation can be variable but if you are open minded you will usually have an interesting experience. As usual our selection of places to stay in Morocco offers a wide range from which to choose, all with the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
