Hip Hotel

We booked a great hotel in Morocco on TabletHotels. Love the story behind the site – the founder wanted to create a site that would be “the definitive destination for global nomads who seek to be inspired by every aspect of their experience in hotels.” Naturally, as aspiring global nomads, we've been using the site:) They have great “last minute” deals on hotels like the one we stayed at, Ryad Dyor.

Riads are traditional Moroccan houses set around garden courtyards, many of which have been restored and converted into stylish guesthouses in the medina. The fascinating thing about these riads is that they’re completely unmarked (no signs on the unassuming doors) and tucked away in hidden alleys. Impossible to find without someone to lead you right to the door, and still you’re not sure you’re in the right place until the door opens and you walk into an oasis. We thoroughly enjoyed the Ryad Dyor and its affable manager Yassir. Check out the photos by clicking on the album below.
