In spite of knowing a great number of hotels in Morocco and in Rabat, Riad Dar El Kebira is the best hotel/riad in the country, I recommend all the very demanding tourists who come to Rabat to experiment his Riad.

I definitely plan to stay at this Riad again on my next trip to Rabat. The location is just a short cab ride from Rabat Ville train station. If you don't have luggage and feel like a nice walk, you can meander down the gorgeous Mohammed V Boulevard, into the Medina and through the souks to the Riad. Each of... More

I found the Riad Dar El Kebira clean and comfortable and received excellent service from the staff. Worthy of special mention was the home-made yogurt served as part of the breakfast. The roof garden provided a perfect sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the Medina.

When the Spanish say "Si" it means "Yes" This guy name SiMohammed at Riad Dar El Kebira was born with Si attached to his name and SiMohammed walk the talk. Ask him for any kind of help, what you will get is yes, yes, yes and yes for virtually anything and he will do it genuinely. He speaks almost impeccable... More

This Riad is conveniently located in the Medina walking distance from the ocean promenade. The room was adequately comfortable with impressive original Moroccan decorations to the smallest detail. The staff is service oriented of the highest degree and the breakfast on the gorgeous terrace was fabulous. stay and enjoy.

We had a wonderful experience staying here. My review will be a bit lengthy just to give others a picture of what it is like actually staying here. It was nearly a five star experience in my opinion, though I'm sure this would vary for others depending on the type of stay you are looking for. In the first place,... More

Nicely situated but that is about it. Impressive Riad but not worth the value. Room with no windows and meal not worth it, barely edible. If you like the show this is a good place, if you want real comfort try some place else

This was our first ever stay in a Rhiad and found it great!! The rooms were very clean and the staff very helpfull. You get a very real sense of the city's folklore while walking through a market and a Morrocan neighborhood, before getting to the Rhiad's entrance. Once you cross the door you inmediately feel a very nice atmosphere.... More
