Angsana Riad Blanc, Marakesh Morocco
No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
A charming, authentic riad, popular with English guests, especially those wishing to experience a Marrakech guesthouse for the first time. A friendly, relaxed and quality orientated ambience prevails in this and the other seven sister properties found in the same area.
Although there is no onsite spa facility, these are available at some of the neighbouring sister establishments. Many of the main tourist sights are a stroll from the entrance over flat ground.
A flat, non-descript wall has a small, easily missed doorway with a bell to one side. Beyond is an ornate, well restored interior courtyard which acts as a focal point for the interior areas and a central meeting point.
Property type: Hotel
Built Year: 2007
A chic, tastefully arranged inner courtyard has majestic, sweeping white arches, pink coloured pillars and an attractively tiled floor. Wood and ironwork railings adds style and interest to the upper level, which is reached up a curving flight of steep, narrow stairs.
Compact lounge has white walls, red and cream coloured fabrics and low tables, often used for drinks and specially prepared meals. Arched doors add even more charm, as do the intimate display shelves and fireplace.
Small, ornamental pool occupies a corner of the central courtyard, but is not suitable for serious swimming. Attractive tiling at the rear blends in well with the surrounding arches and traditionally designed arches. Wooden armchairs with white cushions are overlooked by a couple of slender trees.
A small roof terrace is used for occasional sunbathing and breakfast with views over the Medina’s rooftops.
Area Type: Located in a narrow alley-like pedestrian street, in the southern part of the Medina, off a busier street that leads from the Bahia Palace towards the Jemma el Fna 300m away, with its abundance of entertainers, street stalls and open air eateries. Small silver market is 150m away and Ziani Hammam, 180m. Taxis wait in the Prefecture area, on the main street, within 120m of the riad’s entrance.
