The rooms are beautiful, clean and well equipped. Breakfast is excellent. The staff members are friendly and helpful.

This riad is great. The rooms are very clean. The staff is helpful and they speak near perfect English. They have maps and directions waiting upon arrival. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in Rabat.

Riad Kalaa very kindly arranged our private transfer from Casablanca Airport. Due to a very delayed flight from London, we arrived at the edge of the Medina at 1:30am. Our driver ushered us and our luggage thru a maze of alleyway streets to the Riad while staff awaited our very late check-in. My husband and I were extremely impressed by... More

This riad is in a great location. The riad is beautiful inside and it is extremely well decorated. The lights are amazing. The room we were in was beautiful with lots of exquisite touches. The pool area was also really nice and a lovely place to relax at the end of the day. Like other reviews the service was poor.... More

We loved it here. We here with our children (21, 13, 13) This riad had a lovely old Morocco feel to it. It was a bit of a maze to find it down the narrow winding alleys inside the old Medina. It has much charm as does the medina. It was close enough to walk to the market which we... More

A little bit of an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the medina although nowhere near as hectic as Fes or Marrakesh medinas. A traditional riad with nice staff and good food. Our room was basic without phone,TV or minibar but that didn't really matter.Very laid back atmosphere in the courtyard with dinner served at 6pm and was a... More

The room on the ground floor was quiet humid the towel were wet due High humidity levels and damp in the room. If you dont smoke avoid the room in the patio because you will get the smell in your room. I will not stay again in this place no value for money.

Riad Kalaa is located rather deep within the baffling labyrinth of Rabat's medina. You would easily walk by it, never guessing from the stark exterior what lies within. What does lie within is a gorgeous, luxurious oasis and refuge from the somewhat maddening bustle of the streets and alleyways outside. The staff are kind and accommodating. The setting is at...
