Wonderful riad in the Medina of Rabat. Not so difficult to reach by foot from the train station. The owners are nice and can give you the best advice to visit the city. Tasty typical moroccan breakfast served on the amazing terrace. Close to the Kasbah and the beach. Highly recommended.

OK, this is going to be a confusing review!... Because the very best thing about this riad is the very worse! So let's start with the basics... Clean, welcoming, charming, traditional, value for money (I did not say cheap)... Everything you would hope for. Lovely owners who will do anything to help you. Here is the odd it. It is... More

Riad Mahaba was our first accommodation in Morrocco and it was one of the best. We stayed in the Bahai suite and it was every bit as beautiful as it looks online. The bed was hard but not uncomfortable, you can hear the mosque early in the morning but your in the medina and that is the beauty. The wifi... More

The place has bad GPS coordinates, so don't try navigating here with your gmaps or HERE. Since it is in the medina, there is no way, you get here by taxi. People don't know its name in the souk, so the best you can do is call the property before getting there and request the map beforehand, which they will... More

The Riad inside is just amazing: the decorations are wonderful. However, the rooms are completely not soundproof, meaning that you want some privacy, most probably, you won't find it. We have been waken up, first, by the prayer in the mosque across the street at 5:45 and then by the neighbours at 7:30. They weren't making much noise, however, it... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July. It took us a while to find it within the medina but once we stepped inside we were blown away. The decoration, furnishings and ambiance of this place made me fall instantly in love. Shakira the young lady who worked there was lovely and welcoming and so friendly, making mint tea as... More

We stayed for one night with friend and were very satisfied, would stay there again. The house is beautiful with lovely roof terrace, its clean and safe. Breakfast was very good. The owners and stuff were also very nice. We woke up to see the sunrise from the roof and it was worth it;) Highly recommend!

We stayed in this charming family-run Riad for one night during the hot month of July (also during Ramadan). While our night was incredibly pleasant, and the Riad itself is beautifully quaint and appealing, compared to other Riads we stayed in, it was not exceptional. The bed and bedding were definitely less than comfortable and the service (both before booking... More
