No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
An attractively laid out establishment, with a warm and friendly ambience, in one of the quieter areas of the old city.
Adjoining two defensive towers (Borjs), the property has a quality orientated appeal and many small intimate corners for gentle relaxation after a day of sightseeing. The dining facility is especially inviting and proves popular with those wanting to remain onsite during the evenings.
The nature of the ancient building results in a number steps and small arches which, although adding mystery and character, will require care and caution by the less agile and vulnerable.
A flat and generally non-descript frontage comprises a fortress-like wall, either side of a curved authentically sturdy entrance, with a bell push to one side.
Property type: Hotel
Built Year: 2007
The intimate and charm filled interior has an upmarket appeal throughout, especially in the small lounges located either side of the spacious and tastefully designed courtyard areas.
Mellow pink coloured cladding lines the narrow passages and reception area, whilst the white painted ceilings and carriage lamp style lighting presents an appealing modern feel.
An upmarket dining room and intimate bar area have dark polished wooden furnishings, more subtle lighting and attractive wall murals.
A large and well-designed courtyard has a fountain, a couple of ornamental trees and well-established shrubs. Handcrafted tiles and majestic arches add style and intimacy.
Tables are set aside for alfresco dining and a small pool and spa facility is available for the health conscious or those who seek additional pampering.
Area Type: In the heart of the Kasbah area, to the south of the ancient Medina and surrounded by local residences and with a few shops and eateries near the main Kasbah entrance, near the Saaidan Tombs and the Royal Palace. Taxis may pass the door but there are plenty on the main street, 150m away. Most guests tend to stroll to the central Medina area, past the many carpet shops, street vendors and through an area frequented by spice merchants.
