The riad itself is beautiful with amazing attention to detail and very grand. It has an amazing roof terrace which is ideal for catching evening concerts in summer and lounging in the sun. Stephane the proprietor was very kind and helpful in arranging for me to travel to Chefchaouen at short notice and believe got a good price for the... More

Our 1 night stay at the riad in Rabat, was excellent. We were there for the Mawazine music festival, and we arrived into Rabat from Essaouira late at night. The gentleman welcomed us into the riad despite the time and was very kind. The room was spacious, relatively clean (though a little dusty and my allergies went crazy) and the... More

It was our last night and we wanted to be near the airport. This worked. It took is a while to find it but it is a very nice riad. It was clean and the service was above expectations. The owner left our breakfast out the night before as we had a very early flight. A bit noisy but overall... More

Riad is just amazing! Location is perfect, there is no point to stay in Rabat as Sale is just next door :) (getting to Rabat takes 10 min by tram or taxi) rooftop terrace is beautiful and has nice sea view. Food is great and staff are helpful and friendly! Highly recommended!

Riad is located in the old city, very interesting area. Taxi driver was able to find the Riad with no difficulty. Check-in was fast, room was nice with much charm. TV and complimentary wifi. Breakfast was included and was very nice. One of the reasons a Riad was choosen was because of the local atmosphere and interactions between guests and... More

We spent a while deciding where to stay in Rabat/Sale before booking this riad, partly based on TripAdvisor reviews. The place looked nice but, within five minutes of getting into our room, we were asked to leave & told the riad was full. It was our first night in Morocco & we were left wandering the streets searching for a... More

This riad is the best that I know of. First: the very helpful and welcoming staff and owner and then the lovely terrace on the roof with the view over Salé, Rabat, Bou Regreg and the ocean. The rooms are very large and nicely (with a lot of taste) decorated. The beds are really comfortable. The breakfast is also the... More

I am writing this review a little late but I thought I would write one anyway... I stayed here from 6th - 13th June 2014 in the Tetouan (spelling?) room and it was such a beautiful place to stay (the interior). We really enjoyed our time in this Riad and it was a haven compared with Sale itself! The Riad... More

If you've stayed in a Riad before then this is a cool one. Friendly staff and beautiful inside. If you've not stayed in a Riad before be prepared for sleeping in a room next door to the reception area, no door to the bathroom from your bedroom and arriving at a place in a dark alley way that looks like...
