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.

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 is a beautiful and peaceful riad in Rabat. Stayed in the 1000 Parfums Double Room. The staff is young and multilingual. Aiyisha was very helpful. I arrived late in the morning and was given access to my room immediately. Upon arrival was served a delicious glass of tea as we did the paperwork. My room was cozy, had no... More

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

We were pleasantly surprised by this riad, and appreciated the special touches. After a 10-day rough and ready trip I was so appreciative of the bathtub, roses and special scents, not mention a very comfortable bed. Beautifully decorated, and I am sure the rooftop patio and pool would be wonderful in warmer weather. Breakfast was delicious too. Very close to... More

Yes, it’s a lovely refurbished riad. Service was great. Etc. But in the Suite Etoilee the bathroom is separated from the rest of the room by a 3/4 length sheer curtain. If you are traveling by yourself or are OK lying in bed while listening to and watching your travel partner on the toilet, then no problem for you. For... More

Riad Kalaa has been carefully refurbished. Where ever you look, a keen eye for details was applied. Mosaics have been either mended or replaced. The bathroom of our room was a dream and invited for a soothing bath after day touring the city of Rabat. The room was most romantic and very clean. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Shortly...
