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...

That was the way we looked at our visit to Rabat. Sale is a quaint town on the opposite side of the river to Rabat - a very easy tram ride over a wonderful new bridge that takes you into the heart of Rabat. The Riad is so conveniently located - close to the beach (which does need a bit... More

The staff was so kind and thoughtful. Breakfast every morning, clean rooms, incense, wine/beer for sale and always a smile! As soon as we got there we were served tea as a welcome, and drank as we looked over the beach on our gorgeous terrace. If you want a quiet place, kind service, and a beautiful view I highly reccommend... More

For our last night in Marroco we booked the suite of the Riad for double the price of a normal room. The Riad looks nice and has a nice roof terrace. However, the room looked more shabby then chique and the bed was rock hard. We wanted to spend the day in Rabat before going to Casablanca and asked if... More

If you find yourself traveling to the area of Sale, Morocco and are looking for a nice, relaxing place to stay then this is the place for you. Stefan and his wife run a charming Riad there. They do everything to accommodate their guests. By all means take advantage of the in-house dinner as the food and service is wonderful!... More
