Morocco offers a large selection of small and individual accommodation at every price level. The accommodations for our offered Morocco travel are carefully selected, stylish Moroccan riads in the imperial cities, Kasbahs in the south, country cottages in the mountains and hotels in the big cities.

The accommodation category of our group travel is a very good middle class, which we have personally and carefully selected. With the individual travel there is the freedom to choose accommodations and their category – we are happy to advise you.

We invest a lot of time in the selection of our accommodations, and we attach great importance to a quiet, relaxed and central location, as well as beautiful and authentic facilities. In addition, we have a very personal relationship with the owners, which we constantly refresh in our regular checks.

Riad – Guest House

The Riad (or Ryad) is a traditional townhouse with garden and fountain in the courtyard. In the meantime, for the sake of simplicity, a dar – a townhouse without greenery in the courtyard – is also called a riad. In the past, a riad used to be the home of a wealthy merchant, vizier or otherwise important person who could afford a grandiose house in the old town of Marrakech, Essaouira or Fez. Such houses have been transformed in the last decade increasingly into individual and very stylish Moroccan-style hotels with five to a maximum of ten rooms, the so-called Maisons d’Hotel. These guesthouses are true treasures, each room is traditionally and individually furnished – often in a chic mix of styles with modern elements -, the rooms are decorated with mosaics, fountains, Stucco and cedar wood carvings provided. The choice in Marrakech, Fez, Asilah and Essaouira is huge, there are now hundreds of guesthouses in Marrakech alone. The room rates in a riad range from 30 – 400 euros for the double room or one suite per night. Sometimes you can rent a house completely.

Kasbah

Kasbahs – Memory castles of the Berbers. Among the attractions of the south include the countless picturesque Kasbahs, also called Ksar (plural Ksour) or Agadir. The impressive clay castles served as residential buildings, fortifications and fortified castles for families and entire clans. Each Kasbah had its own decorations, costumes and festivals. The walls and towers decorated with geometric patterns consist of rammed earth mixed with chopped corn straw.

Among the most famous Kasbah complexes in southern Morocco are Ait Ben Haddou, Telouet (headquarters of the Glaoui Berber and a worthwhile detour on the drive from Marrakech to Ouarzazate), Taourirt in Ouarzazate, Tifoultoute in the Draa River valley, El Kelaa of the M’Gouna and Guelmim in the Dades valley. Which and how many kasbahs the traveler visits depends on the time available and travel planning. Most Kasbahs can be visited spontaneously and without appointment.

Kasbah Hotels in Southern Morocco: In southern Morocco, clay-colored residential castles can not only be seen a hundred times along the way, you can also live in one of them yourself. All the hotels of the South are inspired by the centuries-old architecture of the Kasbahs: battlements adorned with mud brick, palm gardens, pool and hotel rooms. Sound lamps, Berber carpets and wrought-iron furniture conjure up the Berber lifestyle for western comfort.
