If you’re looking to experience true Moroccan hospitality during your stay in Marrakech, Riad Anyssates is the one for you. The staff here are charming and whilst their English may sometimes be a little limited, their care and attentiveness transcends any language barrier.
The layout is that of a traditional riad, with the nine rooms set around a gorgeous internal courtyard, replete with a generous plunge pool and comfy, cushioned nooks and crannies.
Whether you’re here with your beloved or not, you’ll be hard pushed not to feel romantic as you sit in the candlelit courtyard with the star-filled sky above you and a mint tea in hand.
A good breakfast is served up on the rooftop or down by the pool and is included in most room rates (see detail below).
The riad also serves a light lunch and rather more sophisticated dinner with a menu that changes daily depending on what looks good in the market. The riad does not serve alcohol but are happy for you to bring your own (small corkage fee may apply).
All the nine rooms are lovely with no two the same and each step up offering a bit more space than the last. The décor here is traditional Moroccan, with a contemporary twist – plenty of smooth, earthy coloured tadelakt (a type of plaster), cool tiled floors and woven rugs offset by more modern light features and kooky art.
The rooftop terrace with its views out to the Atlas Mountains is an inviting spot, and there is a plunge pool in the courtyard and a hammam with massage rooms – perfect if you're looking to relax.
Set in the north of the medina, the souk and Jemaa el-Fna are a 20-minute stroll away but there is a taxi rank just a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel if you can’t face navigating the labyrinth of streets. The lovely staff can also help arrange any tours you might like to take.
