Great location. Near medina, kasbah and beach. Welcoming staff. The offered train station transfer was 10x the taxi fare, so I wouldn't recommend it. The restaurant is recommended but I didn't have a chance to try. Basic Moroccan breakfast included.

It's at 2 minutes walk from the Kasbah Oudaya and from Rue Ambassadeur. You can walk across the Souks inside the medina to get the center of the city. The Riad is very simple, very clean and warm. Only one knock for the owner, is to think to renew the Tadelakt that every guest will think that if a flood... More

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

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
