Like many people, arrived after a long 24 hours of travel. Room had no towels, no soap and it could really use a good scouring around the tub and walls. I gave it a 4 because the owner was so nice and so helpful, otherwise it would be a solid "3".

Difficult to find, taxi driver dropped me off at a salon and his 'friend' walked me to the hotel door expecting 15 euros for the privilege. I tipped in 5 dirhams to his disgust. The Riad is really nicely decorated and renovated, a really interesting place to stay. The room was small and had a terrible vie of grotty roof... More

After a long train journey we were tired and hungry. We had already notified the riad by e mail of what time we would arrive and a very lovely 3 course meal was piping hot and ready for us- served by the helpful javad. The surroundings were very beautiful and authentically Moroccan . Our rooms were clean and comfortable and... More

The riad is Moroccan owned and run, so slightly different in style and approach to the foreign owned places, but none the worse for that. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, which is good as it isn't particularly easy to find - though no where in a medina ever is. The Google maps pin was accurate, unusually. Room was cheap,...

"Hanbal" room where I stayed has no view. Then again who needs the view, the view is to get out of the room and explore... What can I say, it's a gem... 100% Moroccan style... Very clean! From the airport I paid 250DH right to the Medina's entrance. From there it's quite straight forward as you walk up straight you... More

This riad, which is near on the main gates within Salé's medina area, is gorgeous, decorated in classical Moroccan style. My room was small but clean and comfortable, with a great shower. The staff were amazingly friendly and extremely accommodating with my dietary requests for dinner. Both meals I had there were fantastic. I loved staying in Salé as it... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. I arrived at the Rabat-Sale airport and, since I wanted to take the train to Tangier the next day, I decided to just stay in Sale and save a bit on the cab ride (I still got ripped off). From what I saw of Sale, I can understand why it’s not a tourist... More

We stayed one night at this riad. We can recommend it. The staff is friendly, breakfast is good. It's a bit far from the centre of Rabat, but as from June there will be a tram from Salé to Rabat. It's not luxurous but for that price, it's good.
