We arrived in pouring rain and because I had read about the difficulties finding the Riad did I immediately ring the bell at Riad Kalaa (which is apparently the big brother) to ask for the direction. They called Art Riad and a young lady came to fetch us. Nice. The room we had was very spacious and to my husbands... More

If I ever had the opportunity to revisit Rabat (can't think why though) i'd definitely like to stay here again. It's close to the Medina and the Casbah and very clean and definitely worth the money. If I had to find something to fault, it would be the distance from where you park and the fact that it has no... More

A small charming riad in the Medina, run by a Moroccan family. We got a good welcome - the husband speaks good English and is very genuine and helpful. Our stay was most pleasant. Our room was the Lavender room which was very comfortable, with excellent shower. Location was perfect - in the Medina but not too noisy. However, do... More

The place is nice, charming and cosy. The design is also very interesting since one gets the Moroccan style of the old building with some new modern touches which turn the place into an airy, clean-look space. Also the host (I didn't get his name) was an extremely nice and friendly guy, and he always had a great smile to... More

Beautiful and chic, warm and helpful staff, clean and refreshing. In the heart of the old city yet inside this oasis you won't feel that there a dirty and busy city outside. Reasonably priced. The rooms were very charming and exotic. You can sit in the terrace above and enjoy some alcoholic beverages or try some authentic Moroccan green tea... More

The riad was clean, well located and we got a very warm welcome!The room was comfortable and well decorated. The only difficulty we had was that the riad didn't have a sign outside the riad so we had to search for it!

Everything was excellent about the riad, the location was very good- five minutes from Kasbah of Ouadus,medina and ten minutes from a tram stop where you can catch to ride to Sale or other locations in Rabat.
