Traditional 10-room riad in the heart of the medina with four roof terraces, a plunge pool and a hammam
In the middle of the medina, surrounded by labyrinthine streets a short walk from the frenetic Jemaa el-Fna Square, Dar Silsila is a traditional 10-room riad with a secluded inner courtyard, a soothing hammam and four rooftop terraces. The interiors feature jewel tones, dark wood furnishings, arched double doors and intricate geometric tilework. Each of the 10 rooms is individually decorated with plenty of authentic Moroccan touches, including lamps, chandeliers and colorful rugs. Suites come with separate seating areas. After a day of navigating the city’s ancient streets, kick back on one of the four terraces (breakfast can also be served on them), take a dip in the plunge pool or hit the hammam for a traditional treatment. Dinner can be arranged on request (just let them know at breakfast).
In The Area
In Marrakech's maze-like medina, the hotel is within walking distance of the city's best restaurants, markets and nightspots; just be sure to ask for directions before you go. Sip rich Moroccan mint tea at the restored 17th-century riad Dar Cherifa. Dine on modernized classic dishes such as filled pastilla for lunch or dinner in the walled garden of Dar Moha, once the home of designer Pierre Balmain and now one of the city’s best restaurants. Previously owned by Yves Saint Laurent (whose mansion overlooks the grounds), the lush gardens of the Jardin Majorelle date back to the 1920s; don’t miss the small but impressive museum of Islamic art.
