This luxurious and authentic Moroccan riad is a hidden gem that provides guests an unforgettable experience of Moroccan hospitality at its finest.
Located in the heart of the Medina, Riad Altair is a beautifully restored 19th-century building with traditional Moroccan architecture that exudes elegance and comfort.

The rooms are tastefully decorated with intricate Moroccan designs, soft colors, and stunning textiles. The attention to detail is evident in every corner of the riad, from the exposed brick walls to the locally made furniture, to the plush bedding.

The restaurant at Riad Altair is a culinary masterpiece. Every meal is made to order with fresh and locally sourced ingredients, and each dish is a delightful exploration of Moroccan cuisine. From the traditional Moroccan pancakes for breakfast to the hearty and flavorful tagine for dinner, the restaurant staff will make sure you have a dining experience that you will never forget.
Beyond the comforts of the riad, steps away from Riad Altair, you will find the bustling and colorful streets of the Medina. The souks, a labyrinth of narrow streets full of vendors selling everything from spices to rugs, are a must-visit. The Jemaa el-Fnaa square is another exciting spot, where you can enjoy a glass of fresh juice, watch street performers or indulge in local street food.
