Beautiful restored Dar with traditional rooms (don't expect large rooms - just enough room to squeeze either side of the bed) and very clean. As we arrived tired and late we ate there - very expensive for what we got. In fact the most expensive for food of all the places we stayed in during 8 days in Morocco.But couldn't... More

Welcomed with mint tea .. lovely place .. gorgeous bathroom .. nice location in the medina with a great leather shop nearby which should definitely be checked out!! Couldn't connect on the internet though. We were only there for one night.

Hidden in the center of the Medina of Rabat we found a jewel: Fantastic warm atmosphere, typical morrocan style designed with love for the detail, very friendly and supportive service team. Breakfast is served on the roof top of the hotel with a nice view over the roofs of the old medina of Rabat. Dinner is served in the small... More

This is a wonderful place to stay -- in the medina but not so deep in that you can't dash out for a taxi, and a short walk from the water and the Oudaya Casbah. I recently spent four nights there on my own and found the staff welcoming and super helpful but not suffocating. Breakfast was fresh, delicious and... More

arriving at Dar El Kebira we immediately felt overwelmed by the beauty and the warmth of the place. A great window through moroccan culture for my visiting friends from texas. I, myself, though from morocco, felt amazed by the authenticity of the ryad. the service was personalized and thorough.The suites were spacious and very intimate. actually, the whole place was...

Not a luxury riad but an overstuffed old place. The lobby remodeling, the food and the mint tea were good. The bedrooms are ridiculously small, no TV, no internet, no safe, no fresh air. Manager Amina "misplaced" one of our passports and she was very defensive and confrontational (it "reappeared" in a different passenger's luggage side pocket days later), making... More

We spent the first night of our Honeymoon here and this hotel did not disappoint. It is everything we would expect of a Riyad... And it was just the right size. The staff went out of their way to please. The tajines for dinner were delicious, but a little too expensive. Overall I would recommend for anyone looking for a... More
