This 17th century riad is one of my all time favourites in the medina – and truly fit for superlatives.
It is an ancient 170m2 medina riad converted by Quentin Wilbaux and later by another prominent local architect – adding to it a quirky design style.
The riad dates back to the oldest epoch of the city still intact – and is oozing character – with its wealth of original architectural elements throughout.
It has been operating as a medina hotel for fifteen years – under local management.
I don’t think riads come better and could offer more; – from its location – over looking the main square, to its situation, neighbourhood, space, views, extra room potential, communal spacing, pricing etcetera.
In my opinion it could be slightly refreshed / upgraded in the bedrooms.
At present the riad boasts on the ground floor an entrance hall, a reception / office, a guest loo, a bhou with a fountain, a kitchen, a salon / dining room, a double suite and a bedroom. On the first floor is a vast salon, a third salon / reading room, two balconies and three bedrooms. Then on the roof is a laundry – space for an additional suite and an upper terrace.
The price is 400,000 €.
