Choose your room or rent the entire place at a discounted rate. RIAD ATMAN was completely renovated in 2008/9, preserving the original layout but blending a traditional Moroccan ambiance with a minimalist flavour, and also featuring objects collected by the Italian owner during her travels around the world. The riad has 4 double bedrooms, is fully air-conditioned and it is also heated in winter and has a lovely fireplace in the sitting area. Its convenient location in the area of Bab Doukkala in the old part of the city (Medina) which is a short walk from the famous Jemaa el Fna square but also 2 minutes from a taxi rank, allows the guest to choose between a walk through the souk or a comfortable ride by taxi, whereas most of the other riads in the Medina are only accessible through a 15 minutes walk in the souk, a pleasant experience at the beginning but not every evening when the guests are tired after a long day touring the city.
The peaceful and cool courtyard which welcomes the visitors, makes a stark contrast with the noise and heat of the Medina's maze. Entering the riad is to experience a different world, leaving the chaos behind to be submerged in a serene oasis.
The strongest point is its terrace where Jamila, the housekeeper and also a very valuable element (see the reviews of our previous guest about Jamila’s pampering on this site (check for reviews of the individual rooms: Sattva, Raja, Maya and Turiya) serves a delicious breakfast which includes freshly squeezed local oranges, a selection of teas, real expresso, homemade cakes and Moroccan fresh mint tea in the afternoon.
Our rates are already reasonable and very good value for money but ask for a lastminute deal and at times you could get a real bargain!
