Amy Adejokun Section editor

Very recent and well renovated, the riad Jardin d'Abdou has the charm that is found only in establishments that take care of every detail: the paint work, the furniture (custom built), and the bathrooms constructed with local materials. The only negative aspects stem from its location and the simplicity of its rooms.

    Location 5.48 /10

    The Riad Jardin d'Abdou is located in an alley in the eastern part of the Medina, in the Bab Eylan neighbourhood, about a 30 minute walk from Jemaa El Fna square, and some 20 minutes from the airport by taxi.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Each one of the establishment's 9 suites has its own specific style. One of the suites is furnished with leather sofas of Arab and African inspiration, another boasts chairs and a bed made of wrought iron, and in a third suite, all the furniture is made of rattan. Each item of furniture has been custom built and hand painted. Keep in mind, however, that this is not exactly a palace worthy of the "One Thousand and One Nights". Although the interior decorating can be considered a global success, the hotel remains quite simple. Despite this simplicity, it was a pleasure to note the presence of Tadelakt-clad wardrobes (a typically Moroccan feature) and light-coloured curtains. The bathrooms, fitted with green tiling, boast Italian-style showers and brass washbasins that add an authentic and pleasant touch. Each room is also equipped with a reversible air conditioning system. Three of the rooms are sufficiently spacious to sleep 3 guests, and all the rooms come with some much appreciated extras: a fruit basket, a flower arrangement, and mint tea and cakes awaiting your arrival.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Jardin d'Abdou was entirely demolished before being rebuilt from scratch in 2007. It belongs to the Brunets, a French couple who has conducted the work, thanks to Jean-Claude's training as an architect, and to Nicole's hard work (she used to be a story-teller and has recently taken up interior decorating). Both have poured their hearts into this project. The interior courtyard is large and houses a small swimming pool, with small orange tiles that match those found elsewhere in the hotel. Next to this area is a lounge with a wooden ceiling, a round fireplace, and a plasma screen TV. The terrace with its deckchairs provides a perfect vantage point to admire the palm grove. There is also a massage parlour, but you must remember to book in advance.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    On the ground floor there is a room that serves as a dining room. It includes two little brass tables, chairs with red velvet upholstery, and red tapestries adorning the walls, as well as a small fireplace. The cuisine on offer is of traditional Moroccan inspiration: couscous, pastillas or tajine. If you wish to eat here, you must let the owners know in the morning, as they have to shop for food at the local market, so as to offer only fresh products.

    To know

    As guests arrive, they are greeted with an assortment of fruit, a flower arrangement, and mint tea and cakes. With regard to its location, it should be noted that this is not one of its strong points, as the Jardin d'Abdou stands in a remote area, far from Jemaa el Fna square.

      It is hard to define this magical and unique place. The Palais Namaskar is completely different than what you will find elsewhere in Marrakesh and we were definitely won over! A luxurious little palace, it manages to avoid all those poorly chosen details that some luxury hotels are capable of including. Neither flashy nor ostentatious, the Palais Namaskar is sober and sophisticated. The luxury can be seen in its magnificent gardens, in the personalised service guests receive from the moment they arrive, in the stylish decor, and even in the lack of any flashy features. The Palais Namaskar will definitely become a go-to place for an exacting clientèle that is discreet but also, and mostly, quite wealthy.

      Excessiveness and pomp are the two keywords at the Taj Palace Marrakesh, which will definitely leave guests talking for a long time and attract a few curious visitors. Those who can afford to stay in this palace will appreciate the very personalised service, the welcome worthy of a king, and the attention that is put into every detail of the decor. Although there will certainly be those who find the decor isn`t to their liking, as it really is very razzly-dazzly and just too much. However, this hotel really is worth having a look at and is sure to stir up the curiosity of tourists.
