A Moroccan fantasy: Riad Palacio De Las Especias

A magical hotel in the middle of the Medina

Well, hotel, hotel… actually this accommodation is classified as a riad. A term originating from the old days, where a riad was commonly known as a traditional Moroccan house in the center of it all a garden or courtyard. All within the comfort of the old city walls – therefore, within the medina (old city center of Marrakech) you’ll find lots of these Moroccan houses of wonder. Whilst many parts of the old city feel long overdue for a renovation, most riads are like stepping into another world. A world straight from your 1001 fairytale that is. And that especially goes for Riad Palacio De Las Especias.

This is part of your room. I KNOW.

Why we fell in love with this riad

This riad is interior perfection for us, containing future home goal after future home goal. Plants everywhere, hints of bright colors and the turquoise pool. The rooms are spacious, with rose petals on the bed upon arrival- super cheesy but we can’t help but to love the extra effort our hosts made for us.
