The Riad is the Moroccan traditional house, normally with two or more stories around an Andalusian-style courtyard that contained a fountain.
Entrance to these houses encourages reflection because all of the rooms open into the central atrium space. In the central garden of traditional riads there are often four orange or lemon trees and often a fountain. The walls of the riads are adorned with tadelakt plaster and zellige tiles.
A kasbah, previously spelled casbah or qasbah in English, also known as qasaba, gasaba and quasabeh, in India qassabah and in Spain alcazaba, is a type of medina or fortress. The meaning of the word kasbah is varied, including “keep”, “old city” and “watchtower” or “blockhouse” .

For the urban areas, this category are usually located in the the old quarters; In the countryside could be as a form of Kasbah, a guest houses or a Riad; This economic category, as its name suggests, is usually the cheapest, but offer an excellent level of comfort for the price.
