Located in the medina, but close enough to the perimeter walls to hail a taxi and within easy walking distance of the Kasbah and Hassan Tower. Hicham is a very helpful, informative, and cheerful host and was most enthusiastic to ensure our time spent in Rabat was as satisfying as possible. the accommodation was very comfortable, clean, and well organised.

My wife & I stayed here for 2 nights straight after an early morning train from Marrakesh and could not have enjoyed it more... The riad is tucked away in a maze of alley's but our taxi driver found it without a problem, a few minutes walk from the carp park. Art Riad is very tastefully decorated and even though... More

My wife and I stayed here. It was the last place on our 10 day trip to Morocco. The area was super cool and the owner was most helpful even though we suffered the ill-effects of a massive downpour. The breakfast was nice and the rooms were good as well. Overall I would recommend this riad even though the price... More

Good place, good decor, clean and well-run. Art Riad and its connected riad, Riad Kalaa, are two of the nicest in Rabat. The breakfasts could use a little improvement, but they are decent and served in a pleasant courtyard or on the roof terrace in good weather. Recommended.

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
