On the way to the south from Ceuta, we can spot the hotel as if it were an enormous Andalusian white village. The Hotel Blanco Riad is the perfect excuse for discovering the town, though its world heritage medina. One must make a halt on the way before entering the old Medina, with its sinuous streets, it’s ancestral market, it’s squares, so as to understand the reasons of the UNESCO stamp. The life on the streets is overwhelming, between white washed facades and colonial buildings from the protectorate times, is the “Ensanche Español”. The Hotel Blanco Riad occupies a beautiful XVIII th century house with a patio. It was the Spanish consulate in 1860 and during the time of protectorate it was the “Bachas'”home. A big landscaped exterior patio from which one can hear the rumor of the fountain, completes the building, and there is also a roof terrace from which one can spot the Medina and the citadel. All the rooms are peaceful, luminous, welcoming and different.
