Had a really nice time here- super easy to find in the medina (which is NOT always easy!), beautiful building and rooms, very clean, and kind, friendly staff. Close to shopping area and local landmarks.

Don't let the forbidding wooden door in a windowless wall put you off. This place is a hidden treasure. We were greeted with mint tea in the beautiful courtyard. We had the Berbere room which led straight off the courtyard through a huge double height wooden door. This lovely warm room was the epitome of Moroccan architecture and décor. I... More

Stayed at the Riad Kalaa for 5 nights at the end of Feb. 2015. We were overwhelmed by the kindness and attention of the staff, Aicha & Laetitia. Nothing was too much trouble, delicious food, very comfortable room, a great place.

Stayed just the one night, and it can be hard to judge a place when you arrive late and leave early. The riad is well located in the old medina and appeared to have a French influence. Our room was up at roof level near the pool. A small room but nicely presented. Bathroom was reasonable,but hot water was scarce... More

Dear Stavo58, Thank you for choosing to stay at Riad Kalaa. We are sorry that the room does not fit your standard. The curtain between the bathroom and the room is part of the decoration of the room. We know that guests may not like it and we understand it. The saharan or oriental suites would have been better as... More

Though it took me a bit to find the Riad Kalaa, as soon as I stepped over the threshold I felt as if I had been whisked away to a desolate paradise. From our introduction the staff was friendly, hospitable, and made me feel like this was my home. I stayed in the sultan suite and fell in love with... More

We have just spent two magnificent nights at the Riad Kalaa. Having not been to Morocco before we could not have asked for a better welcome. The staff were incredibly courteous and helpful navigating us around the town and the region. The Riad was bright and inviting and a delicious Moroccan tea and biscuits were provided on arrival. The room... More

From the elegant rooms, to the rooftop pool and lounging area, this old home is a wonderful place to visit. Nestled inside the medina's maze of alleys, it is quiet and peaceful. Be aware that the doors to many rooms are stained glass and quite transparent though!

This riad in Rabat is interesting because it has a simple style compared to the usually more elaborate architecture of these riads. There are some compromises like a curtain separating bath room to sleeping area but mostly the details are interesting. It is a bit of a walk from the main road but not too bad. Dinner there was good... More
