Stayed here for 3 nights on our first visit to Morocco. The Riad is located in the heart of the city's old Medina, and surrounded by the rabbit warren of beautiful old walk ways and streets with their colourful little wooden fronted shops. It's also just a short walk to the Kasbah which has a lovely public garden (free) and... More

This hotel is clean and beautiful but unfortunately noisy at day time. the service is not the best n but OK. I was there for 5 nights and the personal was very polite and helpful except one time. Compairing with the price I cannot say it is a 4 star hotel but it is clean and beautiful.

My first night in Morocco, and one night stay at the Dar El Kebira. Beautiful building with original carving and wood architectural features. Very helpful staff who served wine and snacks on the rooftop. Wonderful views! Traditional antique furnishings throughout, and in my lovely bedroom on the ground floor. I had dinner in the Dar, and it was delicious.

We were sighted with the hotel managements help to organize taxi and train and taxi for a special trip 6 hours away. We could not have done it without them! Breakfast on their rooftop terrace was exceptional.
