Straddling the thin line between boutique hotel and guesthouse, Dar One delivers up a delicious sort of intimacy whether you're flying solo or filling up its six suites with friends. Throw all your ideas about traditional riad aside and embrace the quiet haute Paris found in the piping edged white and taupe leather poufs, sofas and daybeds. Yes, there is a courtyard with a plunge pool, but it feels so salon, even if you are sipping on mint tea. In bedrooms, tadelakt is shaped cubist style and stripes appear more Euro than Maroc. A small team of staff cater to your needs, but it is not a restaurant-ready stay. De rien - authentic Morroccan meals are prepared on request, and the medina is full of cool restaurants and bars to explore.
