Located in the old medina, the Riad Kalaa was great. The hotel recommended a small restaurant around the corner and it was the best tagine on the trip! Dijarnet was the name of the restaurant, I have a separate review for that. Caution that the market is very crowded with locals and if you are looking for trinkets or quality... More

After traveling for more than 24 hours to get to Morocco, do a little sightseeing in Casablanca and heading to Rabat, we were more than pleased with this beautiful place. Our room was gorgeous and very comfortable. Since we were so exhausted, we opted to dine-in at the Riad and are very glad we did. What a charming set up... More

While we would have never found this plac e without our guide, this riad is wonderful. We were greeted and given tea while the staff finished getting our room ready. The room was on the second floor and yes, the stairs are narrow and tricky but it's am old building. The room was simple and small but that's what we... More

I only spent one night here but was very impressed. The riad is in the Medina and its beauty came as a surprise after the trek through narrow featureless streets. It was my first night in Morocco and I was not prepared for the lovely interior. It is a classic riad but has been handsomely renovated with a slightly modern... More

Riad Kalaa was a perfect hotel to begin our trip through Morocco. The property is beautiful, location in the "heart" of the city, staff lovely and accommodating, and food excellent. It set the bar high for the rest of our travels in Morocco!

Riad Kalaa staff will pick you up from the airport for 20 Euros. This way you can avoid negotiations with taxi drivers in Rabat. After a 20 min drive, you will come to Medina, and be amazed. The Riad is situated in a calm, clean and beutiful part of Medina. It is close to the market, restaurants, bars and all... More

We had only one night at Riad Kalaa, but were impressed with the beauty of this intimate boutique hotel. The courtyard is stunning in tile and carved wood and plaster. Fabulous breakfast (the best we had in Morocco) in a small dining room off the courtyard. Rooms are lovely, not terribly roomy, with luxurious, beautiful bath. Ours did not have... More

This is now the 5th time that I have stayed in Riad Kalaa and the service, standards, rooms, food and atmosphere remains impeccable. There is a charm that no other Riad in Rabat has. The Medina in Rabat is already a great place to be but to have a hidden gem like Riad Kalaa makes the Capital even more special.

All of the amenities you'd expect at a European boutique hotel with all of the Moroccan character and charm intact. You must try the massage/hammam combination, and breakfast is a delight. Enjoy the sunset with a bottle of fabby Moroccan rose and bowl of olives dressed with spices and preserved lemons. The riad's staff is also extremely friendly and helpful,... More

Great location in the medina but a quiet retreat. Stunningly beautiful traditional Moroccan decor. Our room was very comfortable with a spacious, well-appointed bathroom. Spacious communal area. Staff were attentive and professional. Excellent breakfast.
