Delightful to be let in through the door into this stylish and charming oasis. Could be a bit tricky to find without good directions or a guide. Rooms are well decorated with lots of nice touches such as fresh fruit. Breakfast is served in the courtyard with lovely breads and preserves and other goodies. The but comes in when you... More

Easy walk to a lot of different locations. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was pretty good. Our room had an awesome bathroom and also had a fireplace that the staff helped us light. There is a pool on the roof but it wasn't open when we were there. We would for sure stay here again.

We stayed here one night while on a tour of Morocco. The riad is located in the Old Medina and we thought we would never find our way out of the maze of narrow streets. But that was not a problem as we found out while walking around the neighborhood. The courtyard atrium is roofed with glass and a most... More

The riad itself is beautiful and well located on the edge of the medina. The staff was nice and helpful. We also had a very delightful meal with one of the best mojitos I have ever had. The room, however, was a bit awkward. There was a sitting room when first entered, but to reach the bed/bathroom you had to... More

Riad Kalaa is stunning, the decor is superb and takes you away to another place. The rooms were small but very well appointed with high vaulted ceilings and a large bed. The breakfast was tasty and the riad has an onsite bar (which is very HARD to find in Morocco). The Rabat medina is much smaller and cleaner than Marrakech... More

We stayed here one night, our first night in Morocco, and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was lovely and so peaceful. There is an open courtyard where we had an amazing breakfast and a beautiful upstairs terrace which, unfortunately, we didn't find until shortly before we left. There is nothing I would change about this place!

To sum it all up: A fantastic place to stay whilst in Rabat with warm welcoming staff and a great atmosphere! Airport transfer: We were immediately greeted at the arrivals by a member of the hotel staff who escorted us to the hotel which was a short 15 minute journey to the medina walls where we had our first taste...

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
