Lovely, clean hotel with nice rooms facing a central courtyard. Top floors have external windows. Perfume rooms are the smaller top floor rooms. Nice rooms in different color schemes, with private bathrooms, TV, wifi, double beds. Beds are a bit hard, but this seems to be the rule in Morocco. Breakfast served in courtyard, coffee/tea, pancakes, jams and honey, cheese,...

We enjoyed our night here -- our suite was clean, modernized, and quite comfortable, the location is excellent, and our dinner, though expensive, was quite good. What's missing is customer service. We were barely greeted upon check-in, and our bags were not brought up to our room. We had to seek out a staff member for questions, and at no...

As part of a tour with Morocco Expert Tours we spent our first night at Riad Kalaa. We had researched it before the trip but we're really happy it exceeded our expectations. Our hostess greeted us with a warm welcome and traditional mint tea. This was our first experience with a Riad and we just loved the center atrium. Our...

Enjoy both convenience and comfort with a stay at Riad Kalaa, an idyllic accommodation combining modern-day luxury with traditional Moroccan culture. The location is great, right near Consuls street and the Kasbah of the Oudayas in Rabat, making it easy to access everything the city has to offer. Upon arrival, I was immediately taken by the majestic Moroccan charm of...

Riad Kalaa was the first of several riads that we stayed in during our trip to Morocco. It was a little smaller than some of the others, but did not lack in charm. The courtyard was beautiful and the rooms were very traditional looking. Ours was located on the second floor where there is a pool and terraces. Breakfast was...

Riad Kalaa looks good when you first arrive. While its bones are traditional, the makeover is very funky. Great colour schemes and interesting furniture. It started well but went down hill quickly. Service is at best chaotic. No one appears to be in charge. The two most obvious candidates appeared to be arguing quite a bit of the time. The...

After wandering along the small maze like streets, & you arrive at your doorway, & are wowed. The courtyard & rooms are spectacular & quite a surprise. The staff is outstanding. Mustafa was our Tom Cruse! Just remember to not hit the main switch off if you're sharing a room!

We stayed two nights at Riad Kalaa in December. The location of this riad is excellent. It is a cheap (around 10dh) ride from the train station. And you can easily walk to many attractions like the Oudaya Kasbah and Andalusian garden. Chellah and the Hassan II/Mohamed V monuments are not too far away. As the political center, Rabat is...
