We arrived in Casablanca and continued to Rabat for a one-night stay. It was our first experience at walking along the narrow passageway of the medina to arrive at the large wooden door which opened to the spacious and very beautiful Riad Kalaa. The staff was charming and served us mint tea and Moroccan cookies when we arrived. Our room... More

This review is long overdue, but the wonderful experience here lingers, and we are planning to bring our whole family here. The negative experiences of other travelers is likely due to their inability to adapt or perhaps their unrealistic expectations due to their own cultural limitations... so let's just address that first. Yes, if you have a room around the... More

Hidden in the heart of the medina is this lovely, lovely place! Our room was breathtaking: huge sunken tub, fireplace, even a flat screen tv. Breakfast was the best we had anywhere in Morocco, wonderful--the home made yogurt was the best I've ever had. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was two reasons. First, the lighting in... More

Let me preface my review with the fact that we normally stay at 4 or star hotels in suites. We did enjoy the experience and authenticity of staying in a riad and would recommend that anyone traveling to North Africa and Morocco experience staying in a medina for at least one night. Waking to the prayers at 5 am and... More

We spent a very enjoyable weekend here. Most others guests only seemed to stay for one night as part of a tour, which is sad since both the hotel and the city are worth exploring. Neither is at the top of the must-see lists, but Rabat is a charming and gentle way into Moroccan culture without the hassle and bustle... More

We stayed in the Jasmine room. It was not overly spacious (the 360 degree view they have on their website makes it look even smaller), but it was beautiful. The bathroom was amazing, which totally made up for the fact that we had to wiggle around our luggage just a tad. The staff are great, and served us with mint... More

We arrived in Casablanca and after visiting the Mosque continued to Rabat for the night. The first room we were shown was on the courtyard; we asked to see another toom and were shown one in a corner just off the courtyard, which we preferred.

Rabat has a brillient medina and Kalaa sits in the Northern part away from the bustle and noise but still within striking distance. Good food and a small swimming pool on the roof along with really well decorated rooms and atrium made this a great place to stay. Service was good on the whole. And here is the but. The... More
