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.
