“High Quality Accomodation - just like a Homestay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Looking for a oasis of peace, tranquility and relaxation? The Riad definetly is one! The owners Laurence and Farid and the staff are very welcoming, charming and extremly helpful.
The Riad itself a great pice of artwork, nicely decorated and very relaxing. Its like revitalizing the ancient arabic building and living culture.
In the middle of the medina and still miles away from noise and hectic. The food is prepared with passion and tasty. All in all a place which you could look forward to coming back to.

What a charming place to stay in Rabat! Very friendly and caring owners who share their passion for Rabat with visiting tips and for the Riad they have renovated themselves.
The restaurant is also very good and wort trying.
The only comment is the video projector showing TV program during the dinner. Not the best atmosphere for relaxing.
Highly recommended.

This Riad has been totally remodeled and is very modern and clean. Even has an elevator. The owners go out of their way to meet your needs and make sure you are comfortable. The location is in the medina close to the main sights. Great spot. Recommended!

We just returned from a vacation in Rabat where we stayed at this amazing riad. The place was beautiful and very "Moroccan". The staff was friendly and helpful with regards to places to see and eat (although the meals they served were very good too).It is located within the medina so it was very convenient to everything in Rabat. In fact, we liked it so much that we cancelled a couple other places we were going to stay and did day trips from here.

This place is amazing. Very peaceful, extremely comfortable and the service is great. Be sure and eat on the rooftop. I am sorry I waited so long to write this review..I was there in May of 2011.I am sure it is still as nice, if not nicer now.

Room Tip: My guess is they are all equally great.

In the middle of the souk and away from the noice, this Riad is "lovingly" maintained and well managed without overdoing it. The owners show a great eye for detail concerning style, features and sevice. Parking (We came with our car at night and not being familiar with Rabat it took us an hour to find) is a 200 yards walk (porters at the parking!) and both cost next to nothing.
Tip: the Riad has magnificent "poofs" around the courtyard and the staff can tell you where to buy these; it takes appr. 4 days to make these (we bought 4).
