“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stayed here on the first night of our Morocco experience. What a great way to start. The staff were so friendly, our room was comfortable and breakfast was just lovely. The staff happilly gave us an early morning cup of tea and were very friendly and helpful even though we only spoke english we managed to communicate and be understood. I would happily recommend this to others

Room Tip: We stayed on the top level in a twin room. Not the largest room but enough for us for the night we...

Its a nice place for Tourists who are planning to stay here for a day or two. May not be ideal for someone in Rabat for Business Trip or staying for longer duration. People who manage this hotel are nice and friendly with the exception of:
- You will have communication problem if you don't know French or Arabic
- Expect to pay 3.5% tax if paying by CC which is not included in the nightly rate
- The hotel arranged for a taxi in the early morning, but the taxi didn't show up. No one picked up my call at the hotel when I called to check about the taxi. Finally, I had to walk with my luggage about 1/2 a mile to pick a Grand Taxi that goes to Airport.

This riad was in a good location, just inside the medina. The atrium and roof deck were lovely, but the room was quite small (it was hard to walk around the bed) and the air conditioning did not work particularly well. However, the bathroom was quite nice and very large. The biggest problem was with checking out and paying: we had an early train out of Rabat, so we asked to have breakfast a bit on the early side the day before. Breakfast was late, and the proprietress would not interrupt her breakfast to let us pay and leave to catch our train. This made our morning a lot more stressful than it needed to be, and considering that we were paying 80 euro per night, I hoped for a little more.

I stayed here on my first night in Morocco, having arrived in Casablanca and made my way on the train to Rabat it was the perfect riad. Its in the old medina but easy to find. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful! The riad is also perfectly situated as a base to explore Rabat and all the major sights are within walking distance. I arrived quite late and there wasn't anyone there who spoke particularly good English, having said that, I didn't speak particularly good French and the girl still went out of her way to help me even though it involved sign language and pictionary and a lot of patience. I cannot thank her enough, by the end of it I knew where to eat, where to visit, how to top up my phone, what time breakfast was and both of us were in fits of giggles. It was an unbelievably warm welcome and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Riad.

Staff extremely helpful. Served tea at our arrival. Gave us a map with directions for getting around the Medina. Good location but a bit of a challenge to find. Helpful Moroccan walked us to the front door. Room was a real treat and a great overall experience. We stayed on the bottom floor in a suite with a/c. Breakfast in the courtyard was delightful.

Room Tip: Recommend suite on bottom floor with a/c

A lovely spot to stay in Rabat. The riad was clean, well kept and the staff was very friendly and spoke both english and french. The terrace upstairs is a great spot to have a quiet break from the city. Agree with the suggestions to ask for a map as it can be a bit tricky to navigate the medina. I would also suggest getting the ladies at the front desk to write the address down in both French and Arabic in order to be able to show cab drivers if you need to get there by car.

Good location in the medina, about a 10 minute walk to the Kasbah, and easy to find. Very nice Moroccan staff, one of whom spoke a good amount of English (and I would assume all spoke French). I stayed in the Iris room, which was nice, but my parents stayed in one of the suites, which was more expensive but also more lavishly decorated. Rooms on the ground floor open up onto the courtyard/main eating area, so potential for noise if one is looking to sleep in although this was not an issue for us. The riad has a hammam on the terrace which we did not use as it was pretty small and basically a steam room and shower. The owners were not as involved in the operations as in the other two riads in which we stayed on this trip. We only saw them in passing one evening and they seemed to speak no English, only French. The breakfast was nice, lots of food options including fresh fruit, which is not something that we have seen in many other riads.
