The riad was great. Our room was large and quiet with lots of natural light. It was tastefully furnished and the bed was comfortable. The riad central patio was well designed. The dinner was so good the first night we had dinner again the second night even though we had many choices of other restaurants. When we asked the owner...

We had a marvelous experience at Blanco Riad! The staff are comfortably multilingual, courteous, and were extremely accommodating to our every need. Mirabel, the owner, patiently answered all of our anxious, pre-departure-to-Morocco email questions quickly and succinctly. Asma, once we arrived, was amazingly helpful and charming, and was entirely correct that Tetouan is the place to get the best exchange...

The Blanco Riad was outstanding, with excellent facilities, a great restaurant, and very warm and accommodating hospitality. The hotel staff arranged a super early and all day taxi journey with little notice, and there was ability to access spa services. Breakfast was fresh and local and the restaurant was the best we could find in Tetouan (and I was with...

Recently stayed three nights at this pretty Riad. Lovely room but a/c faulty so with no question the staff moved us to another room. The thing that made our stay so successful was the attention to detail and helpfulness of the staff and particularly the owner Maribel. We were in Tetouan for a wedding and they helped us find the...

We stayed here for one night and everything was perfect. It was good value and we got exactly what we wanted. A charming bedroom with a very nice light filled bathroom and air conditioning. The riad is lovely and perfect for a stop off in Tetouan. Would highly recommend.

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....

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...

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...
