“Splendor, comfort, and hospitality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

This lovely historic guesthouse is like a miniature Moorish palace! Every room and every detail is a feast for the eyes! The large dining area downstairs is a sumptuous area to enjoy delicious tea and pastries any time, large breakfasts with a variety of fresh local breads, and hearty lunches and dinners--either Spanish or Moroccan. The rooms are quiet, clean, and beautiful, and the fully-tiled bathrooms with classic modern fixtures are a treat in themselves! The two-tiered rooftop features a stunning panorama of the old city and the nearby mountains, and a couple of dreamy tent-like seating areas decorated with tapestries and cushions. Step outside, and you will find yourself in the midst of the old marketplace within less than a block. Leather, carpets, slippers, perfumes, jewelry, and chickens await you! Step back in, and you are surrounded by warmth, tranquility, and hospitality! The gracious hosts, Ruth and Brahim, treat everyone like long-lost friends. They are truly wonderful! "Insha'allah" we will return!

Room Tip: Every room is a dream! Look at pictures and choose your favorite--they are as beautiful as the pictu...

We actually stayed in a small house owned by the owners that was not too far from the Riad because they didn't have a room for the 3 of us at the Riad for our 2 night stay. The house was quite spacious and very nice.

Brahim and Ruth were very good hosts w/Brahim escorting us to the Riad and house when we arrived and giving us a tour of the Riad the next day. The Riad is beautifully restored and the rooms quite nice.

We enjoyed our breakfasts and a dinner at the Riad but be aware that dinner make entail some second hand cigarette/cigar smoke.

Ruth makes El Reducto both beautiful and homely. Lovely, affordable meals, gorgeous rooms, wifi that actually works at decent speeds, attentive staff. They even brought me tea in my room when I was sick. Lovely, well located, can't recommend them highly enough.

Room Tip: The Casablanca room is my pick!

Brahim and Ruth are truely wonderful hosts. We were wellcomed in a most gracious and hospitable way. We settled down very confortably into a "sultan's suite" and enjoyed one of the best meals in Morocco (we are frequent visitors to Morocco) ever.
Ruth provided us with a great local guide, Nasser, who turned our visit to Tetouan even more special.
If you're thinking in Tetouan make sure you don't miss el Reducto.

After struggling through Tetouan with heavy cases it was an absolute paradie to be greeted by such friendly staff, allowed to go and sit in the terrace and be served a beer with olives. Quite honestly without the Riad the city would have been far less pleasent due to lack of a cool haven to rest in. The owner in particular is extremely friendly and will go out of her way to make your stay more pleasent. If I do return to Tetouan I will most certainly be returning to El Reducto, both for the rooms and the very pleasent restraunt.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask for a couch or anything to be removed or added to the room

We arrived hot and tired after travelling from malaga to a lovely welcome. The rooms are lovely and the rooftop terrace is an excellent retreat. The staff are very helpful without being intrusive. We more than happy to dine in the restaurant and really use the hotel as a base.

On opening the doors of Riad El Reducto, from the hustle and bustle of the Medina, you chance upon a magical timeless atmosphere. Beautifully decorated, stylish and authentic. The rooms are cool, with high ceilings, lavishly decorated with rich earthy colours, lit by chandeliers and lanterns. The bathroom / wetroom is also well decorated and we loved the tiles. We had two wonderful meals and the staff were all really helpful and friendly. All in all a great place to celebrate our Anniversary. We too were lucky to stay when the King was around and the town is heavily guarded, perhaps otherwise the Medina could be a little intimidating and not for the faint hearted.

Room Tip: The Marrakech room was wonderful.
