Blanco Riad Hotel, is the riad to stay in during your visit to Tetouan (Morocco). Enjoy the elegance of what was the old 19th-Century Spanish Consulate, which retains its tall white pillars and elegant arches to form a balcony overlooking the central courtyard and bubbling fountain.
Renovating this historical home into an oasis of sheer luxury and calm, has been a work of passion for us. We came on an unplanned visit to the city a few years ago, when a friend showed us the house, then in ruins, but full of light and peace. What else was there to do but to give up our jobs and invest a year to bring this palatial home back to its former glory.
We teamed up with our architect, Rafael Jiménez Atienza, who was totally devoted to the idea of crafting a space that preserves the intimate architecture as well as creating a relaxing space for you to sleep and eat. Enjoy the restored mosaics, doors and gates, and the high-quality finish of the facilities.
There was a time when the Riad was a Wedding Home, and rare is the Tetouni who hasn’t been invited to an event to the Blanco Riad. Why not be the latest guest to enjoy the Moroccan luxury of what we think is the best hotel in Tetouan?

“Clean, quiet riad with excellent service and very friendly staff” I stayed in this riad for 10 days in April, 2014 with two of my friends for a art workshop in Tetouan. All of us loved this riad so much because the staff was so friendly and helpful. They treated us like their best friends. Also compared with other riads or hotels where we stayed, this place was way cleaner. also it has kind of artistic vibe. It has very charming courtyard decorated with nice modern mosaic on the ground and we painted there as well because we became all inspired by their lovely courtyard. The location is great too. It is close from Bob Tut and, king's palace, and all the attractions. During the workshop, this place was like our Tetouan home so that we could relax after painting outdoor like in those busy, crowded Souks or medina. I am going to miss Azma ( the manager) 's friendly smiles and her attentive greetings in the morning, and the tranquility this place provided.
“Great Riad, friendly staff.” My wife and I stayed at Blanco Riad in June, 2013. It was a beautiful, relaxing riad, very well located with access to the old Spanish quarter and the medina. The room we were in (Meriam) was very well done - with original tile work and very modern facilities (the shower was amazing). The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We also ate a very good traditional Moroccan meal in the Riad's restaurant, at a very reasonable price. Also: everything worked - hot water, plumbing, doorknobs, lights. That's rare in Morocco. 🙂
“Un Oasis de tranquilidad en la Medina de Tetuan” Sinceramente, la medina de Tetuan me impresionó y he de reconocer que en algun momento en que nos perdimos por sus laberínticas calles me dio miedo. Es como viajar en el tiempo. Encontrar el Blanco Riad fue maravilloso. La decoración y restauración es preciosa. Nosotros nos alojamos en la habitación más económica que era muy correcta pero creo que merece la pena pagar un poco más para tener una suite. Eran maravillosas. El hotel tiene servicio de comida bajo pedido y creo que es el mejor sitio para comer en la ciudad que no tiene gran oferta de establecimientos.
