A wonderful Moroccan experience. We didn't bother to leave for dinner as you can order in the morning after a rooftop breakfast and they will home cook the tagines to enjoy in their downstairs lounge and dining area. A must try if you want to feel the real taste of Morocco, the Riad experience is way different from a modern... More

Excellent service for the entire 2 weeks period, the hospitality of the staff is outstanding and perfectly balanced. Hanane makes the best breakfast in Rabat even for lactose intolerant. The location is great, I was jogging on the beach every morning. Room service is very good, so highly recommended.

This is a stylish riad in a great location within the medina, well sign-posted, and a short walk away from the main soukh. The staff are fantastically helpful, and the breakfasts on the terrace were wonderful even if not the very best we have enjoyed in Marrakech. We thought the evening meal was decent and the offer of wine was... More

This is a beautiful riad in a great location easily accessible by car with a parking lot a few blocks away. We had a suite on the 2nd floor which was beautfully decorated, a nice size and had modern amenities in bathroom. Close to the Kasbah and Andalusian gardens. We woke up to the smell of fresh bread from the... More

Stay here to feel like a part of Rabat. The custom design and decorations are fantastic. Go for the Hammam spa treatment, it was quite the experience. Be prepared, the rooms are long but narrow, that is just the style of many Riads, but some Westerners would find it small if you are use to big square rooms.

Our room was beautifully decorated, smallish but fitted into the building well, to have made the rooms larger would have meant alterations which would have taken away not added to the experience. The staff put themselves out and go the extra mile to ensure you, their guests, enjoy your stay. The riad is actually quite easy to find from the... More

This place is absolutely the best. I stayed there over the Christmas holiday and used pretty much all their services and amenities including pick up from Rabat airport/ drop off in Casa, their restaurant, the hammam/ massage, etc and everything was truly amazing.

Tucked away on a narrow alley in the medina, you will find this very beautiful riad. It being our first night in Morocco, I cannot make comparisons to other Moroccan accommodations but the staff were so friendly and helpful, you'll feel like you're being treated royally. The common spaces are quite beautiful. Our suite was large and comfy. Elaborately decorated.... More

This riad in the heart of the medina was perfect for us. It's a very charming historic building that evokes Arabian Nights. The staff were always helpful and we enjoyed the tasty breakfast on the rooftop. It was a great location for exploring both the medina and the casbah. The price was reasonable and very good value, especially when compared... More
