The Ibn Batutta Room


The old wooden doors of the Ibn Batutta Room open onto the courtyard, and the original thick walls make it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter (there is a heater for winter nights.) The room can be used either as a double or a twin (2 beds each 80x190cm.) 
The Moroccan scholar Ibn Batutta left Tangiers in 1325 on the pilgrimage to Mecca, only to return 24 years later after travelling as far as Asia. A window screen from Rajastan, a Syrian-style lamp, an old Chinese cabinet and even the cocoon shower are all evocative of the far flung places where he visited.
The bathroom has a shower in tadelakt, a nickel sink and an external window.
