The staff was exceptional. Kind, welcoming, friendly, and they went out of their way to be incredibly helpful at every turn. I wish I could say about the manager, but I cannot. The manager was very cold and explicitly transactional. The woman (I hate that I forgot her name) that greeted us on Monday morning was kind enough initially, but... More

Great service. Staff are professional and friendly. Couldn't ask more of them. They welcomed us with a nice cup of tea, helped us navigate the Medina (even handed us a map) and gave instructions where to park our rental car (and how much we should expect to pay for it). Rooms are small but cosy. They have all the comfort... More

I travelled through Morocco for 2 weeks, Riad Dar el Kebira stood out as a wonderful little gem in the heart of the Medina. Rabat was easy to navigate and explore without a guide. We enjoyed the Riad, staff, accommodation and service. The roof top terrace could do with a make over to encourage the use of such a beautiful... More

I find this Riad magical, there is so much love to detail all around it! It transports you to the real moroccan way of living. Everyone was extremely kind, food was delicious and the location was perfect. Do not leave without enjoying your breakfast at the terrace, simply fantastic! I will definitely come back!

We stayed at Dar El Kebira for 11 days and have nothing but glowing remarks about the Riad and the entire staff. The Riad was a welcome sanctuary from the narrow passageways and crowds of the Rabat Medina. We stayed in a larger room that had a seating area and it was very comfortable. It was immaculately kept clean every... More

the hotel is beautiful inside, the room was great, but taking a shower in the bath was not easy to get in and out, or to stand without a grip. to reach the hotel at night is not easy with a lot of luggage. it is recommended to order a shuttle from the airport to the hotel.

We stayed at this Riad at both the beginning and the end of our 11 day trip to Morocco when we came to visit our daughter. The location of the Riad was convenient to getting about.

This Riad surpassed all my exceptions. The staff were all so helpful and made our stay such a pleasure. The Riad is tucked away in the Medina in such a quiet part of the city but with easy access. We had dinner in the Riad twice and enjoyed both meals. Would have no hesitation in recommending the Dar el Keira.
