I spent nearly two weeks at El Maati on a business trip. The location is excellent with easy access to Bab Chellah, which is especially convenient if you have bags, but also the location allows you to experience the medina. The care and attention of the staff really make this place special. Laurence, the owner, checks in nearly daily. The... More

Great riad in the middle of the medina. The rooms were great, solidly built, nicely lit, and relaxing to stay in. The staff was excellent, Miriam was courteous and even ran after us in the medina to deliver some high-value items that we carelessly left in the room! The common areas were very nice and relaxing to stay in...you could... More

Stayed in the family suite. Very comfortable. Large room split into a living area, bedroom and loft. Good amenities and nice bathroom. Loved the rooftop deck. Very nice welcome. Wonderful breakfast. Nice staff. Good location super close to souk yet still quite.

We were taken care of by Miriam for the bulk of our stay here. She was extremely courteous and helpful. She showed us around the whole place -- which was I believe 4 floors -- and despite speaking very little English helped us out in every way possible. The rooms were very comfortable and the meals were good.

Can't say enough about the warmth and helpfulness of Abdel. We were greeted with mint tea and sweets every time we returned. Miriam took care of our room and... More

Our family spent a total of five nights over the past two weeks at the Riad El Maâti. Our group took up three of the rooms and the Riad has only a total of six. So, this was as close as you can get to "having a place to ourselves" while traveling. What made us feel really at home, however,... More

They provided me with easy directions in a couple of emails and a map which was nice. I walked from Rabat Ville train station and it took me about 20 mins. If you have bags it may be a bit easier by cab as they are extremely cheap (like a dollar and fifty cents US to get to the medina).... More

We stayed here on our first night of our three sweet trip around Morocco. What a wonderful place. The walk through the medina to get there was like walking through a - very friendly - maze. When we arrived, we were welcomed warmly and immediately made to feel at home. The Riad itself is quite lovely. We were initially surprised... More

After researching various accommodation options, I chose Riad El Maati for my one-night stay in Rabat because of its central location within the medina, and reviewers' intriguing descriptions of its modern, spare but appealing decor--a rare accolade for a Moroccan riad catering to foreigners. This turned out to be my favorite accommodation among the eight in Morocco where I stayed.... More
