The Riad is is an excellent location and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is clean throughout and has some nice décor. First night stayed in the 'Standard Room Oudayas' with a Queen bed but the 'Occupancy: 3' must be a joke and 'Size: 25 sqm'is hard to believe as this room was very small - it really was...

Beautiful restored Riad close to the entrance to the old Medina, on what seem to be quite safe streets. Even walked down the streets to the Riad in the evenings and felt quite safe. Manager and staff are extremely kind and helpful in every way.

Hidden treasure amongst the narrow local streets of Rabat medina. Intimate setting and great roof top terrace where a hearty breakfast was served. Nice service and dinner. Our room & bathroom with beautiful traditional décor.

What an amazing place to stay! Fantastic location, and so different from a modern hotel. Having only 10 rooms, the only time we saw other guests was mainly at breakfast - it was really peaceful. When we arrived by taxi from the airport (which was easily arranged via e-mail to the Riad the week before our visit, and then added...

We were slightly worried about Rabat in general, BUT the Riad, the Medina and neighbouring district was so far from the tourist traps of other towns that we were in awe. It was so genuine and authentic. No pressure from the locals but real friendship was on offer everywhere. All the Riad staff were intent on giving us their best,...

An utterly magical escape away from the madness of London during our Easter break. The staff simply couldn't do enough for us. A special thankyou to Si Mohamed who took great care of my family of 5 every morning at breakfast time on the roof top breakfast area. Thankyou all for your hospitality!
