Vibrant geometric décor and Art Deco style make the Villa Makassar somewhere "Jay Gatsby would approve of", according to The Daily Telegraph.

The hotel is situated next to the Palais Royal, near the wall of the medina and 15 minutes' walk from the souks and the busy square of Djemaa el Fna, where magicians, dancers and snake charmers perform for passers-by. After a hot dusty day bartering in the medina, the hotel is an air-conditioned oasis. It has a heavy door to shut out the noise, a small outdoor plunge pool to relax beside and a rooftop terrace with views of the Atlas Mountains.

The owner's impressive collection of artifacts are spread throughout the property, creating what The Independent describes as a "treasure trove of eclectic Art Deco style". Stop by the small (but perfectly formed) spa during your visit to use the hammam and indoor Jacuzzi. Breakfast is a spread of local pastries, yoghurt and freshly squeezed orange juice. The restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, and a light à la carte menu in the afternoon. You can request to dine anywhere in the hotel.

The intimate property has 10 individual rooms, each with the all-important air-conditioning and a non-alcoholic mini bar. The Prestige Rooms are on the smaller side, while Suites are larger. Grand Luxe Suites have even more space, and come with a private balcony.
