Lovely shops, beautiful architecture, and many great little nooks and crannies, to explore. And not bigger than an afternoons walk.

spent a night in January 2015. Had a dim view of Riads after spending many nights in many riads across the country. This one was beautiful , with great decor and wonderful service. We had the unfortunate incident where our room was flooded. This could happen anywhere, so it is what happens after that matters. We were upgraded to a... More

One of the calmest and most enjoyable of Medina's we experienced in Morocco. Very few of the store owners harass you, making it a most enjoyable shopping & wandering experience. We did manage to barter some amazing bargains. Easy to find and wander around, can get busy towards late afternoon, some amazing street foods on offer and good security. Worth... More

A taste of authentic Morocco. I didn't want to leave! The colors and smells command your attention. This is an active market with all things regional and native to the region. Watch out for the burros -- "Balak, Balak!" means move out of the way!

It is one of the smallest and cleanest Medinas we have seen. It is easy to find your way round. The map provided by the Riad is easy to read. In any case, the Medina is worth visiting.

It's a typical old market, where you will get almost anything and everything at reasonable rates. It is generally too crowded.

The medina in Rabat is relatively calm and quiet compared with medinas in other cities (especially Marrakesh and Fes). It was the first place I went in Morocco and left me with a great first impression, without being too overwhelming. I'd recommend staying in the medina.

If you are in Morocco and happen to be in Rabat, it is surely worth your time go go here. It is totally authentic and most people were very friendly, not what we encountered in Fez or Marrakech. However the Medinas in Fez and Marrakech are so much grander and so much larger, if you are going to be in... More
