Blanco Riad Hotel is one of my favorite hotels in all of Morocco. The location is ideal, the hotel is peaceful and charming, the staff is warm, and the food is excellent. I travel to Morocco every year for work, and I've been fortunate to stay in a number of nice places throughout the country. In my opinion, this hidden... More

This was the most elegant of the three riads in which we stayed in Morocco (and also the most expensive). Our room was clean and comfortable, and the courtyard in the center of the riad was immaculate with a fountain/pool in the center. The staff was friendly, helpful, and multilingual. We enjoyed breakfast (included) in the outdoor patio off of... More

The hotel was great with very helpful staff. The room was small but comfortable and lovely shower, though watch the slippery tiled floor. All the comforts available, and more. It was ideally located, a 2 minute to medina and almost all the sights. Staff very helpful to any reasonable request. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

We really enjoyed our one day/night in Tetouan and at the Hotel Blanco Riad. Owned and operated by Marbella (from Spain) with help from the competent Essma (from Morocco) this is a place we wouldn't hesitate to return to and recommend to others. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to their Aisha suite - a very large and beautifully... More

We had booked through Hotel.info, but when we arrived after a long, hot day in the car and after searching for the (well hidden) Riad, the receptionist said they had not received any booking and could therefore not give us a room. Upon my insistence (I hat produced the booking confirmation right from the start, which didn't interest him at... More

The Riad is beautiful and the rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated. You feel like you are in a palace. The staff is friendly and the location is excellent. The only negative thing was the amount of curvy stairs to get to the room. There was no one there to help us with luggage when we checked in and it... More

Blanco Riad is a very pleasant Riad. We arranged pick up from the airport through the Riad and it was efficient. The taxi journey takes approximately an hour. The Riad is off an alleyway near the palace square, is signposted above the alleyway and simple to find once taken there the first time. On entering the Riad,peacefulness transcends. We stayed...

Myself and three friends had only one night in Tetouan. We booked last minute when we arrived in Ceuta, and hopped a cab to the city. It was tucked away where the cabbie couldn't go, but a tout showed is the way. We walked in and were amazed at how great this hotel was and how beautiful the layout was.... More

I was in Morocco with my wife for my birthday weekend from 18th - 20th July 2014. Nothing went as planned for us before we even left the port at Algeciras. Every step of the way had been a tiring and stressful journey right up until we walked through the door at the Blanco Riad. On arriving in Tetouan we... More
