What a pleasant oasis in the mesmerizing chaos of the medina. What makes the Raid El Maati so unique… besides the spotless rooms and fresh breakfast served on the roof- top terrace, was the friendly and professional staff…especially Abdel. Abdel took serious pride in his attention to every detail to asure that all his guest were properly cared for …always... More

Our first night in Morocco & El Maati ticked all the boxes for a unique pleasant stay. Located inside the medina - its a 5 to 10 min walk through a slight maze which can be challenging to navigate if you have luggage & arriving in the early evening when the medina stalls are at their busiest. Fortunately they have... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at Riad El Maati and a superb traditional Moroccan dinner on our arrival. The riad managers sorted our airport transfer and onward train tickets. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were very kind and hospitable. The location of the riad is excellent for exploring the media and the coastal... More

Very good option in the medina in Rabat. Open rooms and lovely roof-top terrace. The riad provides exceptionally good maps so you can indeed find it even though it is down the back alleys. Very good location from which to explore the medina and the Kasbah. You can actually walk there from the train station in about twenty minutes or... More

Beautiful riad in the medina of Rabat. It is actually easy to find, so don't worry that you might not. The medina of Rabat is also not really big. The riad is really nicely renovated with a modern touch. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. They also offer spa style massages which we can recommend.

First Impression Well our first impression of Rabat was not exactly good, run down and dirty in the old medina. The raid itself was very nicely located though, placed in the centre of the medina but away from the noisy streets and not that difficult to find. However, it does look quite hippy inside, I think trying too hard to... More

The location is very good, close to both the souks and the sights. The riad itself is nice but - in my opinion - very overcrowded with a lot of things, objects and crap that take away the genuine feeling. It is a hippie feeling to it which is ok if you like that style but it is overproced compared... More

Nice and clean place, however it didn't meet my expectations for the price I paid. We spent one night on Sunday and most of the restaurants were closed but we were not advised about this. Wi-fi went down few times during our stay, however the staff was immediately available to fix the problem. Again, it's nice but I've found other... More

This was a magical and magnificent Riad tucked away in the heart of the Medina. It seemed like it came to life from mystical fairy tale. We were very well taken care of. From the minute my friend and I entered we were treated like royalty ..and were giving yummy moroccan tea with treats. The lady at the concierge was... More

Riad el Maati is ideally situated to explore the medina. The main shopping street is a stone's throw away, and all the medina sights are easily walkable. The Riad itself is quite nice and trendy, esp the tree is the courtyard gives it a surreal feel. There is always great music playing and it is a lovely place to just... More
