Riad 42 exudes elegance with its largely monochrome colour scheme. Everything is smooth and simple with only occasional suggestions of texture that help to complete the look and feel of this modern take on the traditional Moroccan riad.
From the snake charmers of the main square to the merchants of the souk, it can be hard to find peace in Marrakech. As a retreat from the commotion of the city, Riad 42 offers a refreshing dose of calm. As well as a slick courtyard with sofa lounges, there is an enticing roof terrace perfect for reclining in a cushioned booth, taking a dip in the pool and enjoying panoramic views of the cityscape.
Tucked away within the walls of the old town is Riad 42, a hotel with a simple name that suggests nothing of its splendour. A modish interior with a palette consisting predominantly of black, white and beige, there are complimenting splashes of colour provided by sturdy, wooden doors and beautiful, tall plants. The result is a pleasing combination of style that is a far cry from the dusty streets just outside its door.
