The location was good, just barely inside the medina. The rooftop terrace was private with some nice views. The public areas were beautiful and really well maintained. We had one of our best dinners at this riad. The bathroom was a bit small but the room was comfortable and charming.

This was a pleasant Riad and in a convenient place in Rabat which we enjoyed. It was very quiet but the room was a little on the small side. The driver picked us up from the airport and that was the most convenient way to get to the Riad as the Medina can be confusing when you first arrive.

Our first night ever in Morocco was in Rabat, at Dar El Kebira. After 17 hours of travel, it was very nice to have a driver from this riad pick us up from the airport (15-20min drive and then 5 min walk within the medina). This is in an easy to find and good location in the medina. The staff... More

This was our first trip to Morocco and Rabat was our port of entry, so we wanted something truly Moroccan. As far as we can tell, Dar El Kebira is that. The manager and her staff were very friendly, attentive, and helpful, and the place was very clean and nicdely furnished/decorated. I agree with Peter B's advice on checking room... More

This was my first visit to Morocco, and also happened to be a business trip (with 2 colleagues). I specifically requested that my local counterparts find a traditional Riad in the medina (old town), which ended up being the Riad Dar El Kebira. It was about a 20 minute drive from the airport, and an additional 5 minute walk through... More

Located in the Medina the Riad Dar El Kebira is well signposted amongst the narrow lane ways. We stayed in the suite, which was quite roomy, but I would check before booking as some rooms were appeared very small. Internet was very patchy, poor or non-existent in our room. The staff were obliging, especially getting our luggage from the street,... More

Riad Dar El Kebira was a pleasant place to stay but we were a bit disappointed. It cost about 120 euro/night (for a standard room - which is only OK). This is much more than any of the other riads we stayed in Marrakech, Essaouira, or Fez, and was not better. The Internet connection is quite bad (again compared to... More

This was our first visit to Morocco and what a great first impression. Even before our trip, communication with management was great. From the time we booked our room and every time we had a question or request, we received an immediate response. The Riad is in the Medina, and about 15-minute drive from the airport. They arranged for a... More

We came here, referred by others and were charmingly welcomed and well treated. Being in the medina is an experience, you can get lost, but it is also the heart of the city and worth the getting lost!
