Art Riad is a lovely place to stay in the Rabat medina. Inside the riad walls it is quiet and relaxing. The rooms are clean and comfortable.The staff is friendly and helpful. We arranged for a driver to meet us at the Casablanca airport which was convenient after many hours of travel from California. We also arranged for a tour... More

My husband and I have lived in Morocco, and know the country well; when we were planning your trip this summer with our teenaged son we wanted to introduce him to Moroccan life, so I booked Art Riad to stay in a traditional style house in the Rabat medina. We were extremely pleased - clean, comfortable, nice people, quiet and... More

Although a little pricey, it is similar price to other riads in the area. Staff were utterly professional, place was spotless and had all the amenities. Great location- 5min walk to beach and markets. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

I stayed in art Riad for 2 nights. I stayed with 6 friends and we booked the space to ourselves. The staff are fantastic. Hissham, the manager is a cheeky delight. The rooms are beautiful. Quiet in the evening. The roof top terrace is something special. I would nightly recommend.

I stayed with a travelling companion in this Riad and was so excited by the whole experience. It was beautiful, small, and decorated so stylishly. The bedroom had a doorway that went into the central courtyard where meals were taken and one could sit and enjoy the experience. The central courtyard was like a conservatory with a clear roof so...

I brought my 15 year old son to Morocco for spring break, and we spent our first night at this lovely riad in Rabat. It is small, but very nice with a beautiful Moroccan-style vibe. Our host assisted us with getting our luggage from the car and traversing the short walk throughout the old medina alleys to the riad. Our... More

We spent 2 nights in Art Riad over Christmas, and very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was a classic riad-style arrangement of a long skinny but very tall space, with a shared balcony overlooking a pretty interior courtyard. The bed was very comfortable and large, the bathroom will fitted out with a large wet-room style shower. Breakfast was especially... More

A very nice property, friendly staff, nice rooms (very well furbished and decorated), an extensive breakfast... all these elements made our stay at Art Riad Rabat an excellent one. The Riad is located in the heart of the city Medina, all major sights are within walking distance. A very good choice for everyone.
