Fodor's Expert Review Riad Samsli

24, Derb Jdid, Riad Zitoun Lkdim, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

Made up of two adjoining houses around separate courtyards, Riad Samsli has 10 charming rooms at very good prices. The property is in a well-lit, safe neighborhood within easy reach of taxis and is close to both Place Jemâa el Fna and the Mellah. Rooms are all on the first floor and are tastefully decorated and furnished in traditional Moroccan style with tadelakt walls, carved wooden doors, wrought-iron trellised windows, and tiled floors strewn with rugs. There are several indoor communal salons and cozy corners in addition to a rooftop terrace, a decent-size plunge pool with alcove seating, and a large restaurant with fireplace. An extra bed can be added to suites and there is a twin room, so families with small children can be accommodated.
