We as a group of Bosnians being on a business trip had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. It was real pleasure to experience traditional Moroccan atmosphere and enjoy in a traditional Moroccan food. The management of the hotel, as well as the whole staff, were enormously hospitable making us to feel being at home. We recommend it to... More

I have a bit of a dilemma here. The staff seem to be really nice folks, and I hate to say something negative about their hotel, but I do feel I need to warn other business travelers. My company has a project in Morocco and we're still looking for that perfect hotel that's decent and not too expensive (we'll need... More

In general we discovered that Rabat is underestimated by the guide books. Beautiful, none touristy and international city! Dar el kerbina is a good base to explore the main attractions in the city and very close to the kasba and souks. Clean rooms and good service with a reasonable value for money and lots of antique furniture of different periods.... More

It's hard to find anything to improve at this gorgeous riad ideally located in Rabat. Rooms are beautifully decorated (no light enters in morning if you like sleeping late!), rooftop terrace is fantastic for breakfast or for lying out in the sun, service and friendliness of staff is top notch, and you are perfectly located in the medina near restaurants,...

This was our first stop as we arrived in Morocco from an exhausting and long flight. We park our rented car at the wrong parking lot, so when we phoned the riad someone from the staff gently came to rescue us and drove us to the right place. We were surprised that they upgraded us to a suite, more spacious... More

We arrived into Rabat late at night exhausted after a delayed flight and then drive from Casablanca. Amina is the perfect host to welcome you into Morocco. Beautifully presented platters of fruit and nibbles in the rooms were just what we needed to settle, as it was too late for dinner. Chocolates on the bedside table were also a lovely... More

A beautifully renovated property, with a proprietor who goes out of her way to make sure you enjoy the stay .The food was excellent, although slightly on the expensive side. Highly recommended.

I definitely recommend Dar kebira. My partner and I wanted to avoid the regular, standard hotels and we found the exact spot, to our great satisfaction. The personnel is very helpful and caring. We loved the ambiance, the furniture and the lay out of our suite. You must venture to the roof-top where you will enjoy the view of the... More

This riad ranges from 3 to 4 stars in quality. The hostess speaks passable English. The structure is well designed but the furnishing are somewhat faded. We had one good meal and one poor meal. This is not as nice as other riads we stayed at during our visit. In the medina, there is far less hassle than in more... More

Rabat now has quite a few good hotels but this one is a rarity in Rabat, located in an ancient, beautifully renovated riad in the medina. It has few rooms, so you won't usually be bothered by other guests. The rooms, especially the upstairs "suites" (slightly larger rooms) are beautiful, like the rest of the riad. The dowstairs patio (with... More
