I had a great time at Dar El Kebira, the property is simply wonderful and the hosts did a great job creating a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. It is a great experience especially for tourists like me (all the way from cold montreal) as it is located in the heart of the medina of Rabat and I would greatly recommend... More

Of the half dozen places we stayed on our trip to Morocco this was probably the second worst. The worst place had no hot water. It was certainly adequate and while not especially comfortable it was comfortable enough. I'm not generally an entitled, complainy person, but feel it necessary to warn travelers that this place is certainly not worth the... More

This Riad has a convenient location in the Medina not far from the Kasbah. While the rooms are not as nice as in the photos (as another reviewer observed) and I would not call this a 5* hotel, it is nice and comfortable. We had rooms off the lobby on main floor. Both were comfortable and clean. We had both... More

Not too difficult to find and well positioned for the souqs, the Kasbah and the sea, this Riad was very comfortable. The welcome was fine and the Moroccan details of furnishing and decor were great. Our room had a 4 poster bed and the bathroom had a deep bath (we never did find the light switch though!). It was the... More

Nice entrance way, sitting area and dining area. My party and I stayed on the 2nd floor which overlooked the courtyard. The room furnishings were pleasant. The sink pattern was the most unique that I have ever seen. The front desk was pleasant. The food was fine. Unfortunately, a few of the kitchenware were not cleaned enough for my liking... More

After some searching on the web for a Riad in the Medina I came across the Dar El Kabira. The location was spot on in that it was walking distance from a number of the tourist sites and on paper it had all we were looking for so booked to stay for 4 nights over the New Year period. We... More

We stumbled upon Dar El Kebira - without any booking. Even if it was late in the evening, we were warmly welcomed. We decided to cancel our booking at a nearby riad and enjoy our time at Dar El Kebira. The riad and the rooms are lovely decorated and clean. You will surely enjoy the included traditional Moroccan breakfast, served... More

I stayed here for 4 nights attending the football from the 12th-15th December. The riad itself is comfortable and located within the medina so exploring and access to the markets is very good. With this style of accommodation do not expect generous space in your rooms. This is what you may call boutique or traditional accommodation, where fittings and facilities... More

With the soccer clubs championship taking place in December in Morocco, all hotels were overbooked by "Real de Madrid" or "Cruz Azul" staff ... finally, this was a very good thing. Between two business meetings, I spent three nights in that Riad, in the middle of the Medina. In normal time, I would have never known what is a genuine... More
