The Dar El Kebira, nestled on a quiet street in the heart of the medina of Rabat, provides a perfect location from which to explore that fascinating city. The building’s traditional décor is stunningly beautiful, in the rooms as well as its soaring courtyard. We stayed at the Dar el Kebira twice, and experienced both a standard room and a suite, both were lovely and capacious. The manager and other staff are professional and most helpful – even to the point of cheerfully transporting our luggage from the hotel to the nearest street that allows motorized traffic (which the medina itself does not allow) at 5:30 in the morning. The breakfasts on the rooftop terrace were abundant, varied, and flavorful. We also enjoyed a abundant, flavorful, and well presented dinner in the Dar's exceptionally beautiful, ground-floor dining room. Any trip to Rabat will be enriched by experiencing the Dar El Kebira.
