A Moroccan riad is typically a house with rooms built around a central open courtyard. The term guesthouse means that you are in the home with the family although you have your own private room and bath. It offers more of a chance to glimpse the other culture and interact with the family you are staying with. Many riads are available to rent by the room or the complete house is often rented. Renting a complete guesthouse would put the family out of their home so the term literally means you are a guest in their home with them. It is similar to the bed and breakfast concept which many people prefer over a hotel in the U.S. and Europe.
