We stayed in the Fatima room. It was very spacious, clean and comfortable. It had a huge shower with great water pressure, lots of hot water and it drained properly (something that doesn't always happen in places with older plumbing). The staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfasts were good and as in all riads were included in the room rate.... More

The hotel was our first stop on a 2 week long, spring break caravan adventure in Morocco with our 4 young children (all under 10) and grandparents. We chose the Riad Blanco because it had a good write up, was convenient and was fair priced. Turned out to be a great choice. They were ready for us. When we arrived... More

Beautiful read in Tetouan. Not as fancy as riads in more touristy places but very comfortable rooms, lovely staff. Food is really very good although no alcohol is served but other restaurants are nearby and staff will give you directions. We brought some wine in with us and that seemed fine.

I've stayed at Riad Blanco 4 times over the past 4 years. It's a wonderful little riad that is very conveniently located and combines traditional style and a very friendly atmosphere at the same time. The food is nice and the staff is very kind. There is a little bit of a hang out scene in the afternoon with locals... More

The hotel was hard to find but a friendly man carried out bags & set off through alleyways , round corners, until finally we arrived at a big wooden door. Behind it a wonderful old Moroccan house . Our suite , the Aicha was large, traditionally styled and had everything one could possibly want. Asma the receptionist was very friendly... More

Customer service is perfect at Blanco Riad, as is beauty. After a difficult trip Blanco Riad welcomes you with open arms and tucks you in and assures you're completely comfortable. All rooms are gorgeous. Breakfast is very good and served in a lovely room. But, truly, everything is lovely here. I can only say good things about this property. Don't... More

I've truly enjoyed my stay at Blanco. It is so nice to be just a few steps away from the main square and truly in between the medina and the Spanish architecture neighbourhood. People were very kind and efficient in assisting all requests I had. The rooms are clean and comfortable and they had a strong heater vs the other... More

The Hotel Blanco Riad is nestled in an 18th century home. The location was perfect for us--located in the middle of the medina and by the Royal Palace. Once you enter the door, the hustle and bustle of the medina went away and peace and calm prevailed. You entered our unbelievably beautiful HUGH room through beautifully carved doors. The floor...

When you want true comfort, good service, #1 restaurant in town, and located next to the King's Palace then Blanco Riad should be your first choice. The owner and staff here will do anything they can to help you have the best experience possible. Tetouan is our favourite place in Morocco - so few tourists and such friendly warm people... More

We arrived in Tetouan at rush hour (as any hour in Tetouan seems to be rush hour). Parking outside the medina, just ask anyone if he knows somebody to guide you and carry your luggage. Nice and spacious riad, comfortable rooms. Good, honest breakfast. We enjoyed our stay. But we love medinas, and take the early noices for granted....
