“Comfortable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We stayed two nights here in April and we were very impressed with the accommodation. It takes a bit of finding down the streets of the medina (the map on the website isn't too useful) but once there it was peaceful and well kept. Majid warmly welcomed us to his house and let us settle in our own time.

Our room was on the bottom floor, very clean and with en suite. Breakfast was included and was a traditional filling Moroccan spread, delicious! Wifi is also available throughout the place. We didn't take advantage of the roof terrace, but I'm sure we would have if we were staying a few days longer.

Great location to feel like you're in the medina but not on the main streets. Recommend for anyone looking for something traditional and not in the ville nouvelle. Probably good value for Rabat, but not the cheapest in Morocco we found.

Room Tip: We were in the Alaimouna room that was on the bottom floor. Clean room with en suite (shower, toilet...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Riad. Nicely situated in the heart of the medina of Rabat, it had the charm and the character we were looking for. It is not fancy, but it was comfortable, offered a nice breakfast on their lovely rooftop terrace, and was convenient to shopping, the Kasbah, and most of the attractions if you don't mind walking a bit. I would advise taking the largest of the suites. It is very private, multi leveled, and has a window looking out into the medina. Expect to be woken up at 5 am for morning prayer. The sound carries throughout the city. I found it an interesting experience. There is no air conditioning, but we found it comfortable at night. The court yard in the centre of the Riad is really beautiful. The upstairs roof top deck has a great view of the medina. The room and bathroom was clean and beautifully decorated with traditional Moroccan style.

This was the first of many Raids my wife and I stayed in Morocco, and its was a nice value for 50 Euro. The family and staff was gracious and friendly, and really wanted their guest to be comfy and at home, which we were. The rooms are all excellent, the breakfast was great, and the bathroom and hot shower was one the best of the trip. Its location is ideal, and they have a sister Riad we checked out thats just as nice, though not as new, both very charming and well appointed.

I stayed at the hotel about three weeks and I should say that I had a very good experience. Most important of all, the staff (i.e. Noura and Kasmiya) was very helpful and friendly. They always take good care of the guests, and have friendly smile on their faces. The rooms were good quality, and all the service you needed from a good hotel. Remember, this hotel is built in traditional style, so the rooms reflect that a bit (see pictures), but I thought all needs of modern travelers were addressed appropriately. I really enjoyed the dinner served in the evening (if you request, that is). The food is cooked at the hotel, and it's authentic Moroccan food; they're delicious and very clean. I stayed at different hotels with four stars in Morocco and the service and staff friendliness was very poor in general, but here you will be most satisfied. Also, the hotel is medina (the old city), so you will have exposure to the traditional side of the country. It's only 10 minutes' walk away from the city center. Also, the shopping center is medina, so you won't have to travel much for gifts and similar.
