A wonderful place in the heart of the Medina. Very close to Rue the Consuls (ask the taxi driver to let you at the beginning of this road; you'll find a police station on your left and then follow the indications for the Dar. You'll take the first on your right). Staff is incredibly available and helpful. Place is quiet... More

I wholeheartedly recommend staying here when visiting Rabat. It is in a great location - in the medina but not too far in with good signage so you can find it, and very close to some great beach views, the Kasbah les Oudayas, and the Andalusian Gardens. Our room was not huge but very comfortable and there are some very... More

Only had two nights in Dar El Kebira. Got taxi from railway station (travelled to Rabat from Marrakesh). Driver gave us wrong directions - no cars in Medina. Young shop keeper left his shop and took us there AND he would not take a tip. Was just happy to practice his Englidh. Although in the heart of the Medina, quite... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming Riad within the medina. The rooms were authentically decorated and spotless. And there was plenty of hot water in the shower! The staff were friendly and welcoming. The breakfast upstairs near the terrace was delicious. I highly recommend this Riad.

Earlier this month, my friends and I went for a two week tour across Morocco. We visited several cities and one of our favorite stays was at this beautiful Riad in the medina in Rabat. The entire experience was top notch. The traditional Moroccan architecture just blew us away, and the terrace view of the city was spectacular. The staff... More

We stayed in this hotel as it had a higher favorable rating from fellow travelers as compared to other hotels in Rabat. As all Riads, this one is also one of the old buildings converted into hotels inside one of alleys in the Medina. While getting in and out is not a problem expect some filth leading to the hotel...

In one word, the best. Located in the heart of the city, everything is quite reachable through many transport means. I loved the architecture and the design, very unique. Besides, staff are friendly and polite which makes my stay very enjoyable. Rooms are clean, and the bed very comfy. All of this for a good price.
