From the moment we entered this historic building in the old, walled medina of Rabat we were mesmerized. From the serene central courtyard where breakfast and traditional Moroccan dinners are served, to the soaring carved wooden ceilings and ancient doors, everything about this exquisitely renovated 1815 Riad spoke of history, tradition and warm hospitality. Even the classic Arabic music playing... More

Our two nights here at the Riad Kalaa were our first in Morocco, and it was a wonderful welcome to the city of Rabat and the country overall. The riad is peaceful and elegant; our room was truly beautiful and so comfortable. There are nice touches all around; no detail is too small to have great care given. Morning breakfast... More

This small boutique hotel proved to be a relaxing and well-situated place for our one day, one night visit in Rabat. The riad is tastefully furnished, with a lovely central courtyard open to the sky. There is a also a roof deck with a small pool and the enchanting sound of flowing water. Our room was quiet, clean, and the... More

What a great place to visit. The town was excellent, the motel in the centre of the town area made the visit all that much better. We were with the locals, shopping and dinning then just a nice walk to our excellent hotel. Up to date facilities, but who cares it was a great place.

Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Service is good with friendly staff. We were to have dinner at the Riad however it is not available on Sunday. No alternative than to walk thru the medina..which was fine. Breakfast is basic but still adequate.

We stayed here for just one night during a quick stop in Rabat and left pretty underwhelmed. The riad is nice looking from top to bottom with a courtyard / dining space and roof terrace with a small pool. The rooms are cozy and nicely decorated, but the reason we were disappointed was the service and attitude of the staff.... More

Five stars for the property itself. Gorgeous and comfy with a truly lovely pool and sun deck. We booked the highest class room available, the Starry Suite, and the architecture and details of the room were stunning. Sadly, one star for the service. We were already a little concerned because communication from the staff prior to arrival had been poor.... More

We were allocated a room on the ground floor, which was very tastefully decorated and furnished. The bathroom was very well equipped. The roof terrace has sun loungers and a small plunge pool which we took advantage of.

The hotel was very cozy and clean I really liked the decoration of the rooms and the place in general, its very close to the market and to get there one have to walk through many alleys that give a sense of a big maze, it was awesome! internet connexion is good too.
