Good location!! Hotel is like a museum and overstuffed!!! There is no direct fresh air coming to the rooms since they sealed the access to fresh air!! The rooms are smelly and claustrophic!!!

Thank you for making our stay so lovely. For business travelers coming from Dubai, we were really impressed to have all the benefits of a big hotel in such a charming riad in the heart of old medina.

I spent 2 lovely days in this Riad that was just terrific and affordable. I have to say that the dinner on the roof in the Middle of Rabat's Medina was just amazing. The breakfast and the room service in the room was unexpected and we trueky enjoyes our short stay..
