Description: Riyad El CadiThe Riyad El Cadi is not a hotel but a guesthouse. A tour through courtyards, staircases and corridors of altogether seven traditional houses gives a good impression of the ancient and pure forms of traditional Moroccan architecture.
The 12 rooms and suites are spread out over five interconnected patios. Three sitting rooms and several alcoves are the ideal setting for reading, playing cards, dozing or having a drink before dinner in the dining room.
The small pool, library with a fine assortment of books on Morocco, a TV in the Palm House sitting room, fireplace, WLAN, and the Hammam are all available for guests. All rooms are individually created and you will not find the usual bar or room service but the team of 15 are on hand to cater to your needs.
