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

We felt like we stayed in a palace, our bedroom on the ground floor was so spacious and had such high ceilings, it felt truly luxurious. The interior design is a feast for the eyes, high quality furniture and decor, combined with plants and natural materials such as leather, brick, stone and wood, which give the house a very divine...

We only stayed one night at this charming and beautifully decorated Riad, but we hope to go back again. The service was impeccable and personal, breakfast was fresh and on the terrace, and requests were met and exceeded. Thank you to the attentive staff and congratulations to the owners for a fantastic job of restoration.

This Riad felt almost unreal with the antique furniture and decorations. We had the rooms on the second floor with window in the bedroom looking into the insight of the Riad. It was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast on the roof terrace was freshly made and probably the best we had during our trip to Marocco. It is a very... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our tripadvisor's page. We are delighted that you enjoyed the authenticity of our house built in the early 19th century, and very different of a modern hotel. On behalf of the team we thank you and we hope to welcome you again. More

We spent 3 nights at this riad, a beautiful old building in the heart of the medina. Rabat's medina is very much a place for locals rather than tourists, which was a nice change from Marrakech. The riad was easy enough to find with the directions emailed to us, and it was a pleasure to wander around the medina without... More
