One of the new breed of pared-down, minimalist riads, Antara is warmed by the original photographs from Paris Match that adorn the walls, giving a glimpse into the city’s Protectorate era.

The seven suites are chic and contemporary – this is not the place to come if you want traditional zellige tiling and rich colours – and from the rooftop terrace, guests can practically touch the neighbouring mosque. The Dar Si Said Museum and Bahia Palace are nearby.

In between sightseeing, grab a stool at the trendy rooftop bar, unwind with a hammam treatment, or cool off with a dip in the heated courtyard pool.

Surrounding area

Tucked away on a lively street where corner stores stay open late and the cobbled streets serve as a playground for the neighbourhood children, the riad is an easy walk to Jemaa el Fna.

Located near the Bahia and Baadi Palaces, and steps away from the Dar Si Said palace, the streets and alleyways are abuzz with both locals and tourists.

A car park a short walk away makes accessing the riad manageable, particularly at night.
