This is a charming property with great potential if it were well maintained and properly managed. Unfortunately service is poor, wifi did not work in the room, the shower head needed replacement, there was no proper check-in and reception procedure, and the attitude of the staff to us was indifferent. With a bit of attention, maintenance, and staff training and...

We loved Dar El Kebira. Amazing historic home in ideal location. Staff treated us like family. The food was also fantastic. We would recommend it to anyone and would definitely go back. Truly a very special experience.

Dar El Kebira is an excellent riad. The interiors are stunning, it is well located on the edge of the Medina for easy access, and the level of service, in particular, was fantastic, with very attentive house and restaurant staff. Ismael, in the roof top kitchen and who served breakfast, is a great guy. Would highly recommend this riad.

We stayed here for a few days while in Rabat for work. I started out with an open mind after reading all the reviews, but they are warranted. The manager absolutely has an attitude problem and poor customer service skills. We stayed in the Marbas (sp?), and it was not ideal. The bed was tiny and incredibly uncomfortable, the shower...

In the very centre of old Medina, it's a very nice Riad, with a small Spa on the roof. Very nice hammam/scrub experience + strong/energizing massage. Nice view of the city from the roof garden (see attached pictures!)

Dar El Kebira is hidden in the corner of the medina, but with easy access to a main street for taxis and walking. It's just over the hill from the beach and across the street from the gorgeous Kasbah les Oudaias. In the other direction, it's easy to get lost winding through the narrow streets of the medina, but great...

This Riad is tucked away in the Medina in Rabat. Once you find your way around you realise that it's not too far off the beaten track. We stayed in a large suite which had beautiful original furnishings. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace and provided a delicious selection of fresh fruit, crepes, cheese, olives and bread rolls.Unlimited coffee...

伝統的な邸宅ホテルで、ウダイヤのカスバやメディナの散策に最適の立地です。もちろん雰囲気やサービスも素晴らしい。食事も美味しかったです。5つ星ながら変な気取りもなく、とても居心地よく過ごせました。おすすめです。 The stay in Dar el Kebira was very pleasant and valuable experience for us. We were able to spend happy and comfort time in the Moroccan traditional beautiful residence with your warm hospitality. Thank you so much to Ms Amina and all of the staff ! K.I.

This is a nice Riad, the Hostess was a little rough but I think this is just her personality, whilst the young man who assists her was so gentle and kind and happy to assist in any way possible.
