On a intricate, labyrinth of narrow alleys nearby the city center you will find a heavy wooden door. Behind it lies the richly decorated Riad (Moroccan patio), with a small fountain/pool in the center an lofty green terraces. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Staff is incredibly friendly and always willing to brew some fresh mint tea for the guests. Seemed to me they worked really long shifts though.
The downsides are an array of minor Moroccan quirks, such as doors that jam or will not close properly and delays on the serving of breakfast. The WiFi had a very short range and could only be accessed from the patio.
Summing it up, a lovely experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Nora was built in the 19th Century as part of the Bahia Palace in Marrakech. At that time, this historical house was inhabited by a Moroccan chief magistrate. The guesthouse is now under Swiss management and impresses with its authentic character and welcoming charm. Riad Nora is in the center of the old town, just a few steps from the Souks and 7 minutes walk from the main square Djemaa el Fna. Some major attractions such as the Bahia Palace and the beautiful Saadian tombs are located very nearby. The leafy double terrace offers a peaceful atmosphere and beautiful views of the Atlas mountains. The light-coloured courtyard provides a small pool for refreshing after a long day in the medina. ... more less
